I provide brief to medium term psychological therapy for people who may be experiencing depression and/or anxiety related difficulties. You will be offered an assessment which will focus on developing a collaborative conceptualisation of your difficulties. This means understanding how your difficulties have developed over time, incorporating biological, psychological, social and cultural factors, so that the treatment plan is tailored to meet your individual needs.
Towards the end of treatment, we will focus on consolidating the techniques you have found beneficial and complete a wellbeing plan to guide you in life should any future difficulties arise.
