Our Cognitive Behavioural Therapists and Psychological Wellbeing Practitioners offer evidence-based therapy for the management of common mental health condition such as anxiety, depression, social phobias and low self esteem . We have developed a flexible range of treatment delivery across our stepped care model which includes one to one appointments (both face to face interaction and telephone delivery), guided self-help using written and computer based materials, group work, and psycho educational workshops.
