Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) Psychotherapy:

This is short term therapy for moderate to severe depression and anxiety which looks at the interactions between our thoughts, feelings and behaviours. CBT looks at ways to develop skills to build greater flexibility in our thinking to enable us to start to change what we do and manage our emotions in a positive way. The therapy you will receive will be with a trained therapist. There will be work to do at home in between the sessions relating to your therapy which will be agreed between you and your therapist.

Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR):
Many people can experience traumatic events in their life, for some these events can continue to cause distress and have a negative impact on mood, thoughts, behaviours and quality of life. EMDR is an evidenced based therapy which enables the brain to process memories and reduces distress.

General Counselling:
This is a short term treatment to help you overcome distressing life problems in a supportive, safe environment. At your appointment, you’ll be encouraged to talk about your feelings with a trained therapist who’ll listen and support you without judging or criticising. The therapist can help you gain a better understanding of your feelings and thought processes and help you to find your own solutions to problems, but they won’t usually give advice or tell you what to do.

Counselling for Depression CfD:
It is easy to be overly critical of ourselves, feeling we are worthless and being left with unresolved feelings from difficult relationships which can make us feel low and depressed.

CfD aims to help people get in touch with the feelings underlying their depression, to express these, make sense of them and develop new ways of looking at themselves and the world around them.

Interpersonal Psychological Therapy (IPT):
IPT is a structured therapy and aims to reduce symptoms of depression and improve the quality of relationships; it looks at ways relationships can contribute to psychological stress.
