TREATMENTS

CBT is a type of psychotherapy that helps the person to change unhelpful or unhealthy habits of thinking, feeling and behaving. CBT involves the use of practical self-help strategies, which are designed to affect positive and immediate changes in the person’s quality of life.

DBT, a form of cognitive behaviour therapy, is designed to help people change unhelpful ways of thinking and behaving while also accepting who they are. It helps you learn to manage your emotions by letting you recognise, experience and accept them.

Often disturbing events happen in our lives that stay with us. The brain cannot process information as it ordinarily does. One moment can become ‘frozen in time’ and remembering the trauma may feel as bad as going through it for the first time. EMDR has a positive and powerful effect on how the brain processes information.
Psychodynamic psychotherapy takes a holistic and syndromic view of an individual and their experiences. In this way, it attempts to understand the root of present issues through understanding their context in a person’s life and past experiences.
Schema therapy attempts to identify the deeper patterns and themes of a person’s life and address these in therapy. Often, these patterns begin in early life and can underlie many mental health conditions, such as depression or personality disorders. This treatment attempts to target these themes to develop a greater sense of well-being.
