Over time the aim is to decrease symptoms and behaviours associated to trauma, stress, anxiety and depression and enable a new way of approaching life.
We carry out rigorous checks and vet all our therapists before they join the team. They must meet with our high standards of professional specification which includes:
This means that the mental health professional you see will be qualified, experienced and competent. Our principles of practice emphasise mutual trust, respect, confidentiality and compassion. We have a positive, forward-looking approach to therapy, keeping up to date with the latest developments in psychological practice.
Because we are a private mental health clinic we have a number of therapists with different specialities.
First, we carry out a triage step during a 15-minute free initial telephone consultation. Depending on the challenges you’re facing, we will then recommend a counsellor, CBT therapist or clinical psychologist.
We have clinic locations throughout the North, so there is usually one not too far from you.
As a result, we can usually offer an appointment quickly and at a time and place convenient for you. But, above all, tailored to your needs.
