Philosophy

 

The philosophy of PsychologyCare is that change is the business of psychological therapy and the merchandise of healing 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. PsychologyCare was set up to offer a different option to other mental health services. To offer a perspective that did not medicalise people’s misery but enabled individuals, couples and groups to view their expressions of distress as often rational, logical, understandable and sometimes useful responses to an event or events in an individual’s life. In other words that mental health issues can be seen (at times) as a normal reaction to an abnormal event. Over time responses can become unhelpful leading to mental health concerns. It is through the therapeutic process we can create awareness and evoke lasting change and growth.
