Our practitioners will listen to your experience and work with you to understand how you have been feeling. Together we will decide what sort of help might work best for you.
Talking treatments (the commons ones being cognitive behavioural therapy and counselling) are designed to help you to understand and change your ways of thinking, feeling and acting which can then help you to do the things you want to do and live a more satisfying life.
We work primarily within working hours, Monday – Friday, 9am – 5pm, however we do have some slightly earlier or later sessions available. Please discuss this at your telephone assessment if this will be beneficial to you. We see people at a variety of venues, GP surgeries or central community venues.
