Adult Psychological Therapy

Psychological assessment and therapy can be offered to adults with a wide range of emotional problems including depression, anxiety, phobias, relationship difficulties, obsessive compulsive disorders and eating disorders.

Interpersonal Therapy (IPT) is a therapy that is time-limited and structured. It usually takes place over 16 weekly sessions. It deals with how psychological problems affect relationships, and how relationship issues can contribute to psychological problems. It can be particularly effective in working with depression and eating disorders

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) is used to treat people with a wide range of difficulties. CBT is a therapeutic approach helping people better understand the thoughts and feelings that lead to problematic behaviour and unhappiness. CBT is particularly effective when treating phobias, anxieties and depression. It is goal focussed and action orientated involving the therapist assisting the client in developing specific strategies to address their difficulties. Typically, between 6-16 sessions of CBT are required over weekly sessions for improvements.
