Our leading team of psychiatrists and psychologists help people to understand the way they feel and provide structured, evidenced-based treatment that helps them to achieve their individual goals. The therapies we use evidence based and National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) recommended. They include:


Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) which can help break problems into smaller parts and provide practical ways to manage anxiety, depression and stress.

Cognitive Analytical Therapy (CAT) which enables you to discover the root cause of your symptoms and move forward through the careful analysis of past experiences.

Schema Therapy – a longer term therapy that can help people with longstanding difficulties who either do not respond to traditional CBT or who have experienced relapses or recurrent problems.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy - an integrative psychotherapy approach that has been extensively researched and proven effective for the treatment of trauma.

Compassion Focussed Therapy – teaches skills to help people develop compassion for themselves, which leads to reductions in anxiety, depression, anger, stress, rumination, perfectionism, fear of failure, and body shame.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy – involves learning to understand and accept difficult life events, and commit to changing self-defeating behaviour in order to have a better life.

Mindfulness - can successfully relieve emotional distress and improve wellbeing by learning to focus on the present moment rather than dwelling on the past or ruminating about the future.

Dialectical Behaviour Therapy Skills – include Distress Tolerance, Emotion Regulation and Interpersonal Effectiveness.
