Psychotherapy

We provide psychotherapy services to help people with psychological problems to develop understanding about themselves and to make changes in their lives. For example, they may be suffering from anxiety, depression, grief reactions, personality disorders, or childhood problems.

Services

Individualised treatment programmes are designed for a broad spectrum of psychological problems, such as:

  • Mood disorders, such as depression
  • Anxiety disorders, such as panic attacks, obsessive compulsive disorder, social phobia, specific phobias
  • Grief and loss
  • Trauma and abuse
  • Health anxieties
  • Eating disorders
  • Sleep disorders
  • Learning and behavioural problems
  • Stress & anger management difficulties
  • Interpersonal relationship difficulties

The variety of treatment modalities and interventions include: 

Art Therapy is a form of psychotherapy where art making is used to allow people to express their worries and feelings in a different way, at their own pace.  Individuals do not have to be good at art. There is no right or wrong way to make art in therapy. Art therapy allows the person to make new discoveries and enable the person to make positive changes.

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) is a form of psychotherapy where people learn to challenge their negative thinking and self-defeating behaviour. People feel more optimistic as they think in more positive and balanced ways and are better able to work and enjoy life.

Eye Movement Desensitization Re-processing (EMDR) is a form of psychotherapy suited for people who have experienced trauma. Eye movements are used to reactivate people’s natural healing processes.

Family and Systemic Psychotherapy is a form of psychotherapy where families, couples, or individuals with systemic issues are engaged. This is in order to help them discover different ways of relating to each other that they find more amicable.

Psychodynamic Psychotherapy deals with unconscious emotional conflicts that contribute to maladaptive patterns.

Schema Therapy is a form of psychotherapy where people’s schemas, or maladaptive themes or patterns in people’s lives, are addressed and healed. The goals of Schema Therapy are: to help patients to stop using maladaptive coping styles and to get in touch with their core feelings; to heal their early schemas; to learn how to flip out of self-defeating schema modes; and to have their emotional needs met in everyday life.

Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) is a brief form of psychotherapy that emphasises looking for solutions rather than focusing on problems.

Supportive Therapy is a form of therapy where people are supported and encouraged to cope with and solve their problems.
