What to expect...
If you think you or your child could benefit from help with your difficulties then please get in touch with us. We offer a free telephone consultation to help you think about whether we are the right service for you. Following this, we can arrange an initial assessment or signpost you onto another service if necessary.
We start off with a detailed assessment of the difficulties, how long they have been going on, and the circumstances surrounding them. We may ask you to complete some questionnaires to help us get a clearer picture of the difficulties. The initial assessment session can last up tp 1.5 hours, and it sometimes takes more than one session to complete an assessment. Following this we will begin to put together a formulation by mapping out the difficulties and agree some goals for therapy. We will explore options for treatment, how long this may last and whether this is something you would like to continue with.
Psychological treatment is tailored to the needs of the individual and/or family. It is evidence-based, primarily using cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), but as Clinical Psychologist's we are also skilled at integrating other approaches where this has been highlighted as beneficial. The majority of our work is with individuals, but we also work with families and from time to time, and depending on demand, we also run therapeutic groups.
