Psychological Therapy and Intervention

How can we help?

We provide psychological therapy and intervention to adults, children, and young people experiencing mental health difficulties, trauma, and other psychological and emotional difficulties. Psychological therapy aims to help individuals and those who support them to better understand and manage issues which may be causing distress or difficulty so they can live fulfilling lives and improve their emotional wellbeing.

What can we help with?

Issues with work with include:

Therapies and Approaches

What type of therapy someone has usually depends on what issues they are wanting to work on and which therapy or approach best fits their needs. We tailor psychological therapy to the individual, drawing upon our training in different therapies to meet individual need and therapy goals. We also have specialist skills in adapting therapy and other psychological therapies to work with autistic individuals, and those with learning disabilities and difficulties.

Psychological therapies we offer include:
Initial appointment (Fee: £110)
All psychological therapy or intervention starts with a 50-minute initial appointment to find more about the concerns and issues you or your child are experiencing and think about what approach may be most helpful. This is also an opportunity for you to meet us and get a sense of how we work and whether this feels a good fit for you or your child.

Psychology Therapy/Intervention Sessions
We have two pathways for offering psychological therapy and intervention. These pathways are informed by an individual’s needs and what support someone is seeking. We will advise which approach is likely mostly helpful either at the time of your initial enquiry, or at the initial appointment if further information is needed to be able to advise which pathway will likely best meet your needs.
  1. Clinical Psychology (Fee: £110 per 50-minute session)

    Clinical Psychology sessions are with one of our Clinical Psychologists usually on a weekly or fortnightly basis. Clinical Psychologists work with a range of mental health problems and emotional needs and can draw upon a range of psychological therapies and approaches when working with individuals and families.

    As Clinical Psychologists we draw upon psychological formulation – a way of developing a shared understanding of your or your child’s issues and needs. This shared understanding informs intervention and therapy to work collaboratively with you and support change.

    Clinical Psychology sessions can support those who are experiencing mental health difficulties, trauma, and other psychological and emotional difficulties, including those who may have more complex and longer-term needs. Clinical Psychology sessions can also be helpful to those wishing to develop their understanding of their mental health, emotions, and behaviour.

  2. Early Support (Fee: £50 per 50-minute session)

    Early Support intervention sessions are provided by one of our Assistant Psychologists who works directly with you or your child. Early Support is typically appropriate where issues are considered less complex. Our Assistant Psychologists work under the supervision of our Clinical Psychologists, thinking about someone’s needs and the work together, though the work itself is delivered by our Assistant Psychologist.

    Early Support intervention sessions are usually completed in blocks of 6-8 or 10-12 sessions depending on need, though sessions are booked and paid for session-by-session. Appointments are typically weekly or fortnightly.

    Early Support intervention often focuses on supporting an individual’s understanding and learning strategies for improving emotional wellbeing to then put these into practice in their lives with support from those around them.

    Early Support intervention sessions may be appropriate for those wishing to address a specific phobia, milder difficulties with anxiety and mood, for children and young people needing support to understand and manage emotions such as anger and anxiety, and for those wishing to develop their self-esteem and manage day-to-day stress.
