"Even if they are not sure whether therapy will help them, or if they feel in any way too embarrassed about what others will think of them, to seek help, I would urge them to do it. Trust me, you have everything to gain. And absolutely nothing to lose."

What We Offer

we have diversified the range of therapies we offer.

While cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) has remained the treatment of choice, we now offer additional psychological treatments, such as interpersonal psychotherapy (IPT), dynamic interpersonal therapy (DIT), bereavement counselling and behavioural couples therapy (BCT).

Behavioural Couples Therapy (BCT)

BCT is a 16-session treatment for depression for couples where there is both relationship distress and depression in one of the partners. The BCT model focuses on the relational aspects of depression and on factors that reduce stress and increase support within the couple.

Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR)

EMDR is a 8-session treatment for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) that enables the mind to heal itself naturally in the same way that the body does.

Dynamic Interpersonal Therapy (DIT)

DIT is a 8-session treatment for depression that uses a psychodynamic approach. Depression in DIT is conceptualised in terms of a “temporary disorganisation of the attachment system” caused by current relationship problems, which leads to distortions in thinking and feelings typical of depression.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

Cognitive-behavioural therapy (also called ‘cognitive therapy’ or ‘CBT’ for short) is a short-term, problem-focused type of psychotherapy (typically up to 8 weekly sessions), that is quick-acting and has proven long-term benefits.

Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT)

IPT is a 16-session integrative treatment for depression which maintains a ‘here and now’ perspective. The treatment aims to understand depressive symptoms in an interpersonal context, and it is framed around one of four predetermined interpersonal themes.

Bereavment Counselling

Bereavment Counselling aims to help people cope with their Grief. We offer 8 sessions which can help people move through the different stages of the process.
