Discussing our innermost life concerns is not like describing back pain or skin rashes. To explore these in a traditional medical manner makes or explanations forced and it is artificial to speak about such concerns in tidy categories. All problems of emotion are inextricably intertwined. Emotions are such delicate and tender things and not comparable to ruminations of the body.
Over time these responses can become unhelpful leading to mental health concerns. It is through the therapeutic process we can create awareness and evoke lasting change.
Ultimately though, the core ingredient to any successful intervention is the therapeutic relationship. Thus our aim is to always provide a space where the individual, couple or group feels safe to discuss their difficulties in a caring, non-judgmental and validating environment.
We are a group of integrative psychologists, which means we draw upon multiple models of therapy, and tailor treatments to meet the individual needs of our clients. The models of therapy we typically use include: Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Intensive Short Term Dynamic Psychotherapy (a brief psychodynamic therapy), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Existential Therapy.
The philosophy of PsychologyCare is that change is the business of psychological therapy and the merchandise of healing inherent in that process is the therapeutic relationship. PsychologyCare is about meeting someone face-to-face and working collaboratively to understand the underlying cause behind their distress whether that is depression, anxiety, or other mental health issues. We view expressions of distress as often rational, logical, understandable and sometimes useful responses to an event or events in an individual’s life. Over time these responses can become unhelpful leading to mental health concerns. It is through the therapeutic process we can create awareness and evoke lasting change.
