Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) helps improve mental health by challenging clients negative thoughts and behaviours and developing stratiegies that encourage emotinal regulation. CBT is often recommended to treat anxiety and depression.

Psychodynamic Counselling

Psychodynamic Counselling focuses on making the unconscious becoming more conscious, drawing on theories and practices of psychoanalysis. It reveals the unconscious content of a client's psyche in the effort to alleviate psychic tension. In doing so the therapeutic model helps clients understand, resolve or manage their problems by increasing awareness of how their past impacts the here and now. 

Intercultural psychotherapy 

Intercultural psychotherapy recognises Eurocentric thinking, but places greater importance on working with race, culturally diverse groups, beliefs and attitudes within the therapeutic relationship with clients. It also recognises the adversities people of colour endure, such as systemic racism, sexism, poverty refugee status etc. 

Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR)

EMDR is a treatment tool incorporated in psychotherapy when working with clients who have experienced life threatening or disturbing event. For example, involvement in a road traffic accident, victim of domestic violence, sexual or physical abuse, sudden death, covid-19 etc

The National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) guidelines recommend EMDR as an appropriate treatment for people who are diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and/or experiencing traumatic reactions, such as anxiety, panic attacks, anger, guilt, insomnia, hyper vigilance, flashbacks etc.

Dance/Movement Therapy

Dance therapy uses the body, movement and dance as a way of expressing emotions and finding ways of exploring and understanding unpleasant lived experience. A psychotherapeutic approach that uses movement to promote and integrate individuals, emotional, social, cognitive, physical, spiritual and cultural sense of being.
