We provide a range of psychological and holistic therapies to help towards your psychological well-being. All our therapists are highly trained and are carefully selected along with the workshops we provide which are carefully designed to provide reflective and scientifically evidenced based practice to suit your needs.
We work with Individuals, Groups, Families and Young people
Adolescents and young people Therapy
We meet the needs of young people experiencing a wide range of mental health and psychosocial difficulties during the adolescent and early adult years. It is particularly relevant for young people who have difficulties and anxieties with relationships; depression, self-harm and suicidal thoughts; anxieties and difficulties around separations; concerns about developmental issues, including gender and sexuality and anxieties about the future.
Couple or relationship Therapy
We provide a space for partners to explore how they relate to each other and then to work towards improving these patterns of behaviour. The emphasis is on what you do together rather than individually. Learning what your partner is trying to communicate and seeing how you respond can help each of you to understand the other better. This can enable you to see more clearly what you want from the relationship and to decide whether or not it has a future and the implications of such a decision.
Individuals not currently in an intimate relationship can attend on their own to reflect on former relationships and to think about what they want from future ones. Individuals currently in an intimate relationship can attend on their own, if their partner does not want to attend, but it is usually better for both partners to attend. Partners are normally seen together, although some separate sessions with each individual can help. If domestic violence and control is a major issue in the relationship, this usually needs dealing with first. Therapy cannot take place without a sufficient sense of safety.
Group work is based on the idea that human beings are fundamentally social beings, whose lives are inextricably linked with other people in many ways, so some people prefer to work in a group as this offers them another context in which to explore and resolve their difficulties. Under the direction of the group therapist the group can give support, offer alternatives and comfort members so that their difficulties become resolved and alternative behaviours are learned. A group can also help someone develop new ways of relating to people. Groups are usually 6 to 12 people with one or more trained group therapists. During the group meeting, members decide what they want to talk about and are encouraged to give feedback to each other.
Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT)
CBT is a form of psychological therapy that helps examine the relationship between your situation, thoughts, emotions, behaviour and physical reactions. It helps train your mind to question whether your emotions are based on assumptions or facts. CBT is ideal for people who want a therapy that works towards solutions with clear goals and practical techniques
Person-Centred Therapy (PCT)
PCT is a humanistic approach where the therapist works with you to help you reach your full potential and become your true self, termed ‘self-actualisation’. This actualisation process is innate and accessible to everyone. The therapist is there to encourage without judgement and to guide the therapeutic process without interfering with the client’s process of self-discovery. PCT suits those who prefer a not so guided therapy and are motivated to make change.
Schema therapy is an innovative therapy developed for people with deep rooted psychological issues. This therapy looks at so called schemas, which are longstanding patterns of behaviour, thoughts, memories and feelings that have developed from childhood into adulthood.
Schema therapy combines elements of CBT, Gestalt therapy and object relations into one systematic approach, which helps people to overcome their longer standing emotional problems and the problems they face in their relationships with others.
Mindfulness is a type of meditation in which you focus on being intensely aware of what you are sensing and feeling in the moment, without interpretation or judgment. Practicing mindfulness involves breathing methods, guided imagery, and other practices to relax the body and mind and help reduce stress.
Compassion Focused Therapy
Compassion-Focused Therapy (CFT) helps those who struggle with the shame and self-criticism that can result from early experiences of abuse or neglect. CFT teaches clients to cultivate skills in compassion and self-compassion, which can help regulate mood and lead to feelings of safety, self-acceptance, and comfort.
The technique is similar to Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy, which also instructs clients about the science behind the mind-body connection and how to practice mind and body awareness. CFT has been shown to effectively treat long-term emotional problems including anxiety disorders, mood disorders, personality disorders, eating disorders, hoarding disorder, and psychosis by addressing patterns of shame and self-criticism, which can significantly contribute to mental health issues
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
Act is a form of behavioural therapy that uses various mindfulness strategies to help you accept the difficulties you face. ACT takes the view that by accepting negative thoughts and feelings, individuals can choose a valued direction in which to take action and make positive changes. It helps to develop a mindful relationship with issues promoting psychological flexibility that encourages healthy contact with thoughts, reconnection of personal values, ad commitment to behaviour change.
Dialectic Behaviour Therapy (DBT)
Dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT) is a type of cognitive-behavioural therapy. Its main goals are to teach people how to live in the moment, develop healthy ways to cope with stress, regulate their emotions, and improve their relationships with others. DBT was originally intended to treat borderline personality disorder (BPD), but it has been adapted to treat other mental health conditions. DBT can help people who have difficulty with emotional regulation or are exhibiting self-destructive behaviours (eating disorders and substance use disorders, self-harm and PTSD symptoms).
