Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy refers to talking therapies which are often used in conjunction with medication depending on the patient's needs. The two main forms of therapy used in this practice are Psychodynamic Psychotherapy and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy.

Psychodynamic Psychotherapy

This is a form of talking therapy that assists a patient in understanding how experiences from their past effects their behaviour in the present.

Gaining insight into unconscious feelings from the past and how they can affect feelings and emotional responses in the present can help an individual to better understand and manage what is occurring in their day to day life.

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy is a short, focussed treatment for a number of psychiatric problems.

It consists of two combined forms of therapy. Cognitive Therapy aims to challenge negative or unhelpful core beliefs that lead to negative and unhelpful behaviours. By addressing these beliefs Behaviour Therapy aims to change resultant actions.
