Services 

WE CARRY OUT FACE TO FACE AND REMOTE THERAPY.

We provide a range of psychological and holistic therapies to help you towards psychological well-being. All of our therapists are highly trained and carefully selected. The workshops we provide are carefully designed to provide reflective and scientifically evidenced-based practice to suit your needs.

We work with individuals, groups, families and young people

Adolescent and youth therapy

We are trained in meeting the needs of young people experiencing a wide range of mental health and psychosocial difficulties during their adolescent and early adult years. We have supported young people experiencing depression, self-harm and suicidal thoughts. We can also help with challenges and anxieties around relationships, separations, developmental issues, gender and sexuality and the future.

Couple or relationship therapy

We provide a space for couples and/or pairs to explore how they relate to each other and work towards improving patterns of behaviour. The emphasis is on what you do together rather than individually. Learning what your the other person is trying to communicate and seeing how you respond can help 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 who are 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 therapy

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. Some people prefer to work in a group as this offers them another context to explore and resolve their difficulties. Under the direction of the group therapist, the group can give support, offer alternatives and comfort members. This will allow them yo resolve their difficulties and learn alternative behaviours. A group can also help in developing 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. This is called ‘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 less guided therapy and who are motivated to make change.

Schema Therapy

Schema therapy is an innovative therapy developed for people with deep-rooted psychological issues. This therapy looks at ‘schemas’, which are long-standing patterns of behaviour, thoughts, memories and feelings developed from childhood into adulthood.

Schema therapy combines elements of CBT, Gestalt therapy and object relations into one systematic approach. This helps people to overcome persistent emotional issues and relational problems with others.

Mindfulness

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 shame and self-criticism resulting from early experiences of abuse or neglect. CFT teaches clients to cultivate skills in compassion and self-compassion. This can help regulate mood and lead to feelings of safety, self-acceptance, and comfort.

The technique is similar to Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy, which 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. This includes anxiety disorders, mood disorders, personality disorders, eating disorders, hoarding disorder, and psychosis. It does this by addressing patterns of shame and self-criticism that can significantly contribute to these issues

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

Act is a form of behavioural therapy that uses 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 and promotes psychological flexibility. This encourages healthy contact with thoughts and emotions, reconnection with personal values, and commitment to behavioural 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 stress management tools, emotional regulation, and improve 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 experiencing difficulty with emotional regulation or self-destructive behaviours. This can include eating disorders, substance use disorders, addictions, self-harm, and PTSD.

Our Integrative Trauma and Attachment Treatment Model (ITATM)®

ITATM is a trauma-specific model that layers in sensory processing, art, breath work, somatic therapies, embodied awareness, toning and movement, bilateral stimulation, resource installation, parts work integration, and amygdala reframing messages. The model treats underlying issues while helping clients safely process through their trauma and adverse experiences in a safe structured way. The model integrates leading edge accelerated treatments inclusive of trauma integration work, somatic therapies, bilateral stimulation and fear reframing into a comprehensive protocol to simultaneously process trauma and re-regulate the brain, body and nervous system.

Somatic Experiencing Therapy

Somatic experiencing therapy is based on the principal that trauma is stored in the body and this contributes to challenges, such as PTSD and anxiety. When the body perceives something as a threat and is unable to complete a survival response (fight, flight, freeze), the stress response system stays on high alert due to the nervous system holding this survival energy inside.

By using somatic experiencing therapy, a therapist can works with this stored survival energy and gently helps the body release this. This will help to promote balance within the body and mind. Instead of asking “what happened to you?”, the somatic experiencing therapist asks “what happened inside your body due to what happened to you?”

Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR)

EMDR is a form of psychotherapy that helps you process and recover from past traumatic experiences affecting your mental health and well-being. It consists of using bilateral stimulations and talking therapy. Differently from other treatments, EMDR focuses on directly altering the emotions, thoughts and responses resulting from traumatic experiences; EMDR therapy focuses on the memory and is intended to change the way that the memory is stored in the brain while decreasing the impact of the problematic symptoms. EMDR was initially known to treat trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder. Still, EMDR can also aid in processing the negative images, emotions, beliefs and body sensations related to traumatic memories that seem to be persistent.

Internal Family Systems (IFS)

Internal Family Systems is a transformative evidence-based model of psychotherapy. IFS identifies and addresses multiple sub-personalities or ‘parts’ within each person’s mental system. These ‘parts’ are like tiny people with different goals, motivations and functions and they fall under three main categories:

Managers: Managers are protective parts that try to maintain control of one’s inner and outer environments. They may try to control one’s emotions, interactions and behaviours.

Exiles: Exiles are parts that may have been hurt, frightened or shamed in the past. They now carry those difficult emotions, memories and sensations from those early experiences. Managers aim to keep exiles contained and hidden from conscious awareness to avoid distress and pain.

Firefighters: Firefighters are activated when exiles may flood an individual with overwhelming, painful, or threatening emotions. Firefighters jump into action to inhibit those difficult emotions by any means necessary, such as substance use or binge eating.

IFS identifies that each person has a core self which knows how to heal parts in the inner system, allowing them to become integrated and whole. A therapist’s role is to help a client disentangle themselves from their parts and access their naturally healing self. In IFS all parts are welcome and are met with compassionate curiosity.

ADHD Assessments

We provide referrals to a centre that offers private assessments for ADHD (Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder).

ADHD is characterised by behavioural challenges, such as inattentiveness, difficulty concentrating and focusing, hyperactivity, and impulsiveness. This can present in many different ways and impact many areas of your life.
