Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

CBT concentrates on how your thoughts affect your feelings and actions. It identifies and addresses unhelpful thoughts that perpetuate the problems you encounter. The aim of cognitive behavioural therapy is for you to have healthier thoughts and emotions.

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


Counselling centres on listening to you, and supporting you. You decide what issue concerning your childhood or adult life you explore. An objective of counselling is to help you to speak about a problem and find a way forward which is appropriate for you.

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

Interpersonal Therapy

Interpersonal therapy concentrates on the interpersonal difficulties you encounter. It facilitates you in comprehending issues differently. An objective of interpersonal therapy is to help you make helpful alterations in how you relate.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) (England and Wales) indicates interpersonal therapy for depression.

Psychodynamic Therapy

Psychodynamic therapy centres on the unconscious meaning of the problems you experience. It facilitates you in becoming aware of aspects of your internal dynamics. Psychodynamic therapy seeks to enhance your self-understanding to give you choices.

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

Transactional Analysis (TA)

Transactional analysis focuses on the roles you use to communicate with yourself and people. It considers the effect of your pre-conscious life strategy and how to improve it. TA seeks to help you acknowledge your value and ability to grow.
