Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

CBT focuses on how your thoughts (cognitions) influence your emotions and actions. It recognises and addresses negative thoughts that maintain the problems you encounter. The objective of cognitive behavioural therapy is for you to have healthier thoughts and feelings.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) (England and Wales) recommends cognitive behavioural therapy for depression, Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD), panic disorder and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).


Counselling centres on listening to you, and supporting you. You decide what matter concerning your early years or adulthood you discuss. An objective of counselling is to enable you to speak about a difficulty and find a way forward that is right for you.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) (England and Wales) recommends counselling for depression.

Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR)

Eye movement desensitisation reprocessing directs your eye movements to stimulate how your mind processes data. The technique endeavours to reprocess your locked distressing memories. The objective of eye movement desensitisation reprocessing is to desensitise your upsetting memories.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) (England and Wales) recommends EMDR for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

Integrative Therapy

Integrative therapy selects therapies to fit your needs and the issues you experience. It considers your personal experiences and options. The aim of integrative therapy is to help you develop your self-awareness.


Psychotherapy focuses on you, and you obtaining insight into the problems you confront. It explores your ideas, emotions and significant moments in your life. Psychotherapy aims to help you change or find appropriate ways of coping.
