We offer a broad range of well-established psychological therapies which are found in NICE (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) guidelines. It may be that another professional has recommeneded that you find a therapist to offer a particular therapy or you may be unsure which therapy would be most suited to improving your difficulties. If you contact us, we will ask you about any preferences you have prior to arranging an assessment. We will discuss this further with you at the end of the assessment, before drawing up a therapy treatment plan together.

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy

CBT looks at the relationships between how we feel, our thoughts (cognitions), our body and how we respond (behaviour). Most individuals start CBT with feelings such anxiety or low mood. We explore how our thoughts and responses may be contributing to these feelings and then work on changing our thinking or responding or both. CBT is mainly focussed on the present, but understanding past experiences may help you to make sense of your difficulties and empower you to change.

Cognitive Analytic Therapy

CAT is about forming a trusting relationship with your therapist which allows you to work together to explore the difficulties that are limiting your life. We look to understand what has contributed to patterns of thinking, responding and feeling, in terms of your earlier life and relationships. Together we explore your choices and ways of doing things differently that will help you bring about positive changes in relating to yourself and others. We will plan how you can continue to move forward after the therapy has ended.


EMDR is recommended for trauma related presentations. Initially we focus on resource building to enable you to manage difficult feelings both in and out of sessions. We will then work through distressing material using a natural process called Adaptive Information Processing. Your therapist will help to reprocess your traumatic memories while guiding you to engage in eye movements. Following successful EMDR treatment, the traumatic event can still be recalled, but it is no longer distressing.


Mindfulness has roots in a number of ancient spiritual traditions; it is paying attention, on purpose, in the present moment with qualities such as compassion, curiosity and acceptance. Mindfulness brings awareness to your thought patterns and bodily experiences enabling you to grow in reflective awareness. Mindfulness is effective in improving a range of difficulties. It has been shown to develop concentration, increase psychological resilience and build your resources to respond skilfully in stressful situations.
