Psychological Assessment and Treatment

I use a number of different psychological therapies, including Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) interpersonal psychotherapy, Schema-focussed Therapy and Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR) targeting problems with  the most effective evidence based approach. All treatment is individually tailored to the needs of the person. 

To accelerate recovery times and minimise client treatment costs I use an intensive, focussed approach encouraging use of self-help materials between sessions.

The first appointment is an assessment when problems are explored and a history taken. Once the assessment is complete a treatment plan is discussed and agreed
