We offer Counselling
Counselling can support you with overcoming life stressors and psychological distress. It can be short term and solution focussed or it can be longer term to help you understand how you respond to situations from past experiences. Working with your counsellor will l help you to recognise what needs to change and how to start changing.
You can choose which approach best suits you and your schedule
Supported Guided Self Help with Computerised CBT
Our supported Guided Self-Help provision is delivered digitally by Computerised Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (cCBT) or via workbook (Bibliotherapy) according to individual. Guided self-help means learning Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) techniques which can help the client manage their symptoms, with the support of a practitioner. Where possible, we encourage clients to engage with our cCBT option due to its flexible and bespoke delivery and our exceptional outcomes and testimonials from clients.
Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT)
CBT is the gold standard talking therapy for anxiety and depression which helps you to look at the problems you have, the impact they are having on your life and what you would want to be different. It is a time limited, structured therapy that is problem focused and goal orientated meaning that there is a focus on change and the steps you need to take to achieve these.
CBT works on the principle that the way we think can influence how feel both emotionally and physically and all of this can be influenced by what is happening in our lives.
How we think (cognition), how we act (behaviour), how we feel (emotion) and what is happening in our body (physical) all link together and influence how we see ourselves, the world and other people.
By understanding these links CBT can help us to make changes to enable us to feel better and achieve your goals.
Cognitive Behaviour Therapy concludes by developing a therapy blueprint which means that you have a toolkit to minimise any risk of relapse in the future along with providing tools for life to help you manage day to day life stressors
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation & Reprocessing)
EMDR is an evidence-based approach for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. It is also recognised as an effective intervention for anxiety disorders, depression, low self esteem and confidence issues and addictions
It works on the principle that by past traumatic memories that have not been processed underpin current levels of distress. It can be particularly effective for strong emotional responses
Couples therapy can be behavioural couples’ therapy or relationship counselling which can be highly effective in supporting you and your partner to get your relationships back on track.
Couples therapy provides a safe environment with an expert to facilitate both partners to be able to share their thoughts and feelings in an open manner and to jointly develop goals and learn tools to help the relationship not only get back on track but also to flourish going forward.

Interpersonal Therapy (IPT)
IPT is a time-limited and structured psychotherapy for Moderate to Severe Depression. A central idea in IPT is that psychological symptoms, such as depressed mood, can be understood as a response to current difficulties in our everyday interactions with others.

What Happens in Therapy / Counselling
We will first offer you an assessment and help you determine the best approach for you and then arrange for you have the appropriate talking therapies. Alternatively, if you have been advised to seek a specific form of talking therapy or you know what you would like we can book an appointment for your session with your counsellor / therapist
In your first appointment you and your therapist will discuss what has brought you into counselling / therapy to be able to agree what areas to work on what your goals of the counselling / therapy will be and we will advise on how long we think this therapy will take. The aim is for you to finish the session with a clear understanding of what you will be working on, what you would like to achieve and how many sessions this will take over what time frame. We aim to ensure that you finish this session feeling hopeful and positive about the work you will be doing with your therapist / counsellor
We recommend then that you start weekly sessions to work on addressing your target areas and goals. You may decide with your therapist / counsellor to space these out as you get to the end of your therapy / counselling to enable you to put into practice everything that you have learned and have confidence in your ability to manage after your sessions finish.
But don’t worry you will always have the opportunity of follow up session or a “top up” if ever needed although we do aim to enable you to finish with all the tools and resources that you need.
