Problems we treat
Depression and Anxiety
Difficulties with low mood, depression, or anxiety problems such as worrying all the time, obsessive compulsive disorder, difficulties with stress or panic are very common. Often people have never been shown the tools they can use to help them manage these difficult emotions.
Trauma and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
If you have experienced a traumatic incident, or series of incidents, those experiences may continue to affect you physically, emotionally and socially long after they occur. We use evidence based therapies such as Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) to enable people to file those difficult memories away so that they no longer create intense and unexpected emotional distress.
Adjustment to health conditions including chronic pain
Chronic pain and other persistent health problems can be very difficult to live alongside. People often ask how clinical psychologists can help individuals manage a problem that is physical and/or incurable. Together, we work with people to find a shared understanding of how your physical difficulties affect your thoughts, feelings and behaviours. We consider how self critical beliefs might prevent you making changes and help you develop tools to overcome these. We know that certain beliefs about illness can affect our experience and expectations of pain and other health problems and by identifying these we can help people find new ways to cope.
