Our treatment styles
Acceptance and Committment Therapy (ACT)
The goal of ACT is to increase psychological flexibility and have the ability to enter the present moment more fully. This allows the client to move towards more valued behaviour.
Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT)
This is a talking therapy used to treat people with a large range of mental health problems and explores how thoughts impact on emotions and behaviour
Enhanced Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT-E)
This is a psychological treatment designed for people with eating disorder psychopathology. Treatment focuses on the minimisation of negative thoughts about body image and the act of eating, and attempts to alter negative and harmful behaviour that perpetuates eating disorders.
Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT)
The focus of this therapy is on being in the present moment while calmly and without judgement acknowledging thoughts, feelings and bodily sensations. This can include medication and breathing exercises.
This is a method of meeting and responding to the mental health needs of children using suitable interventions in dealing with children’s brain development. Children’s experiences are often communicated through play and can become an important vehicle to children to know and accept themselves.
