  • Alcohol Dependence
  • Bipolar
  • Body Dysmorphia
  • Depression
  • Anxiety

  • Binge Eating
  • Bulimia

CBT concentrates on how your thoughts affect your feelings and actions. It recognises and addresses negative thoughts that perpetuate the issues you encounter. The objective of CBT is for you to have healthier thoughts and emotions.


NICE suggests counselling for Depression.

Counselling centres on listening to you, and supporting you. You decide which matter concerning your childhood or adulthood you explore. The aim of counselling is to enable you to talk about a problem and find a solution that is right for you.

Psychodynamic Therapy

NICE suggests psychodynamic therapy for
  • Anorexia
  • Depression
Psychodynamic therapy centres on the unconscious causes of the problems you encounter. It facilitates you in being aware of parts of your internal dynamics. Psychodynamic therapy seeks to enhance your self-comprehension to give you options.


Psychotherapy focuses on you, and you gaining insight into the difficulties you face. It explores your ideas, feelings and relevant moments in your history. Psychotherapy aims to help you change or discover appropriate ways of coping.

Thoughts on Mental Health

This insinuates that they shouldn't seek help and whatever mental health/emotional difficulties they are experiencing will resolve themselves without any professional intervention. This is often wrong and unhelpful. When someone is going through a mental health crisis, it is best to seek help before the problems escalate to a point where their day to day functioning is impaired and they have a complete breakdown. Mental health problems should be viewed in the same light as physical health problems. The assumption that seeing a mental health professional equates to being mentally ill is one of the reasons why a lot of people shy away from seeking professional help when they need it the most. The stigma attached to mental illness is very damaging and is the underlying reason why a lot of people suffer in silence without seeking essential help. Seeing a psychotherapist or a mental health profession should never be viewed as a weakness; in actual fact, it is a strength because it signifies that you takes your health seriously.

Binge eating can be used as a form of emotional regulation by people who find it intolerable or difficult to process emotions and make sense of them. If you struggle with binge eating, you may often binge when you are experiencing or overwhelmed by certain emotions that you are unable to process. Without thinking, you may find yourself bingeing when feeling happy, sad, angry, bored, tired, and so forth. Food becomes your fixation, and the oral incorporation of food triggers a temporary sense of satisfaction, fulfilment and gratification. What makes this cycle very vicious is the sense of guilt that most people who binge often experience after bingeing. Some will go as far as purging, while others restart the cycle again, which becomes intolerable. Food is very symbolic in many different ways, and it can be seen as a source of life to the infantile and primitive parts of yourself.

Starting university is, without doubt, a major life event, and signifies the beginning of a new life in a highly competitive environment. University life is highly competitive, and a lot of students struggle with blending in, self esteem and confidence issues. The stress of being away from home, fear of failure and coping with the work load can lead to anxiety, depression, poor sleep, and even a re-emergence of self harm behaviours in vulnerable students who have a history of self harm. The freedom that comes with being away from responsible adults can make some students engage in reckless partying and other irresponsible behaviours, which can have a negative impact on academic performance. Most universities have a mental health department that provides free assessments, short-term therapy, and referrals to external agencies. The therapy service will be confidential and led by experienced psychotherapists, and you can usually self refer.

Problems getting to sleep affect a huge number of people, with the incidences of significant sleep problems being much higher in older adults. If these sleep problems are not addressed, they can develop into a more serious and diagnosable disorder called insomnia. One of the most common causes of difficulty sleeping is anxiety, which leads to fatigue and an inability to switch off the parts of your brain that trigger sleep. Anxiety is mainly worry about the future - a lot of people struggle with falling asleep when they are going through particular stressors or a crisis in their life, which explains why anxiety is one of the main underlying causes of poor sleep. Therapy focused on anxiety, stressors and sleep hygiene may prove helpful if you are experiencing sleep problems.
