Psychological Therapy

The focus of psychological therapy is to enable you to generate solutions to your issues that are more helpful than the ways you have been dealing with them so far. We will work as a team to identify and understand issues in terms of the relationship between your thoughts, beliefs, feelings and behavior. The approach usually focuses on the present difficulties, and relies on us developing a shared view of your problem. Based on the understanding of your difficulties we will work together to identify goals and agree time-limited therapy goals and strategies which are carefully monitored and evaluated.

Your treatment therapy involves using your time between sessions practicing your therapeutic gains for example small tasks. Typically, sessions are weekly and last 50 minutes. We will agree a number of sessions, usually between 8 to 16. After the completion of treatment, here at the Health Psychology Clinic we usually suggest a booster session to maintain the therapeutic gains and achieve further progress in future.
