Our therapies

Psychodynamic Psychotherapy

In psychodynamic psychotherapy the therapist works in-depth with the client to understand how the client’s unconscious affects their thoughts and feelings, and how the unconscious can bring about undesirable behaviour patterns.

Psychodynamic psychotherapy also enables the client to understand childhood experiences and to have insight as to how these may have an impact on subsequent relationships.  Central to the therapy is the relationship between the therapist and the client. 

EMDR

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy treats traumatic memories as the cause of psychopathology. It helps with symptoms of post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and other mental disturbances. 

MBT

In Mentalisation Based Therapy (MBT), the therapist focuses on the client’s understanding of their own intentions and those of others. The therapist tries to help manage the client’s levels of emotional arousal to enable mentalising capacity. MBT places less emphasis on past relationships and the meaning of events; rather the therapist and client explore the client’s processes when mentalising capacity is compromised in present relationships.
