General Mental Health
If you decide you would like to be seen we would spend the first and maybe second session gathering information about your difficulties and other background information. This will help with developing a better understanding of what has happened and how and why you may be experiencing it as you are. This will also enable us to decide on the most appropriate treatment.
We have experience with undertaking specialist assessments with patients presenting with complex issues and forensic backgrounds. The assessment process can ascertain a better understanding of the psychological needs, risks and risk management, readiness and ability to engage with psychological intervention.
There is no obligation to book further sessions after our first session.
If you decide to proceed with a recommended treatment, together we can think about an initial number of sessions, how often and when to review your progress. Sessions are confidential unless there is a risk to your safety and/or the safety of others, in which case we will discuss informing the appropriate external agencies.
Our aim is to help you develop an understanding about your difficulties in a way that enables you to find ways to move forward, helping you become unstuck. Together, we work with your strengths and supplement this with effective psychological skills and strategies that work for you. We use a broad range of psychological skills and techniques and consider various models of psychological therapy knowing that one approach does not necessarily fit all.
Our aim always, is to help you improve your mental health and manage and reduce the reason why you came to our service. Through the process of psychological therapy we hope you emerge as a version of yourself that is psychologically and emotionally stronger.
