Here For You
COGNITIVE BEHAVIOURAL THERAPY
An evidence based treatment for a variety of common mental health problems, including depression, excessive worry (Generalised Anxiety Disorder), social anxiety, phobias, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and panic attacks.
It examines the interactions between our thoughts, emotions and behaviours, and vicious cycles we can find ourselves in. Once we have understood these, then we can make changes to overcome these problems.
A Happier, Healthier You
Transactional Analysis (or TA for short) is a form of psychotherapy for personal growth and examines interactions in relationships.
In TA we explore early childhood experiences and messages that we carry through to adulthood, which may not be helpful any more.
To Move to the Future
EYE MOVEMENT DESENSITISATION & REPROCESSING
An evidence based treatment for people who have suffered a traumatic experience or suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. EMDR therapy shows that the mind can in fact heal from psychological trauma much as the body recovers from physical trauma.
With an ever increasing evidence-base, EMDR can also help with other issues such as phobias, low self esteem and other experiences from people's past which are impacting them in the present.
