Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is a type of talking treatment which focuses on how your thoughts, beliefs and attitudes affect your feelings and behaviour, and teaches you coping skills for dealing with different problems. It combines cognitive therapy (examining the things you think) and behaviour therapy (examining the things you do).

Computerised Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CCBT)

CBT based modules can be accessed in your own time from your own home or chosen space. You will be supported through the learning package by a therapist during fortnightly reviews over emails and you will learn how to build on existing and develop new skills to improve your wellbeing.  Find out more during your initial consultation with us.

Counselling for Depression (CfD)

Counselling for Depression (CfD) is an evidence based psychological therapy for depression offered within the IAPT Healthy Mind service.

CfD is based on a person-centred model and is particularly appropriate for people with low mood or mild to moderate depression.

CfD focuses on the emotional problems underlying depression such as low self-esteem and excessive self-criticism, which often maintain depressed mood. The aim is to help you access underlying feelings, make sense of them and draw on any new meanings which emerge to make positive changes in your life. This may provide a basis fro psychological and behavioural change.

At times this can be challenging but may help you understand yourself from a different perspective.

Often we grow up believing that we have to cope on our own, but learning how to share feelings can improve relationships and sense of wellbeing.

CfD offers a safe and confidential place to talk about your difficult experience and anything that maybe confusing, painful and uncomfortable. The therapist will not give advice, but will work alongside you to make your own choices.

Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner (PWP)

Stress, anxiety/worry and low mood are common and significantly impact on people's lives. There is good evidence that people can overcome these themselves by using techniques to change unhelpful ways of thinking and behaving - Cognitive Behavioural Approaches.

Psychological Wellbeing Practitioners (PWPs) are trained and qualified to assist people in learning these techniques that are specifically designed to help you self-manage symptoms of stress, anxiety/worry and low mood.

Dynamic Interpersonal Therapy (DIT)

Dynamic Interpersonal Therapy (DIT) is a time-limited, structured psychotherapy, typically delivered over 16 sessions. It aims to help you understand the connection between presenting symptoms and what is happening in your relationships by identifying a core repetitive pattern of relating that can be traced back to childhood. Once this pattern is identified, it will be used to make sense of difficulties in relationships in the here-and-now that could be contributing to psychological stress.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is a structured therapy that encourages people to briefly focus on the trauma memory while simultaneously experiencing bilateral stimulation (typically eye movements), which is associated with a reduction in the vividness and emotion associated with the trauma memories.
