Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is an effective and evidence-based therapy that can help you overcome a wide range of conditions. As the main therapy offered within the NHS today, CBT is recommended by NICE guidelines and has proven success in achieving desired changes for our clients.

Our structured, time-limited therapy is designed to work collaboratively with you, the client, to identify and modify unhelpful patterns of thinking and behaving that may be contributing to negative emotions and maladaptive behaviours.


Our emphasis on thoughts, emotions, behaviour, and physiology is at the core of our approach, and we believe that by working together, we can help you achieve a more positive frame of mind.

Our therapists will help you formulate the problem and give it context, using earlier experiences and childhood issues as necessary to inform the understanding of the current problem. However, our sessions are primarily focused on the present and the future, where we will teach you to identify and modify unhelpful ways of thinking and behaving.


Homework is an integral part of CBT, which acts as a bridge between the sessions and your outside world, ensuring that you are able to apply the skills you have learned in therapy to your daily life.

If you are looking for effective and evidence-based therapy to help you overcome your challenges, we invite you to explore our CBT service and take the first step towards a more positive and fulfilling life.


Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a type of behavioral therapy that incorporates acceptance and mindfulness techniques to improve psychological flexibility. Its primary goal is to assist individuals in altering their relationship with negative emotions and thoughts that may be adversely affecting their lives and overall well-being.

ACT therapy can benefit a diverse range of individuals since it can assist clients in managing conditions such as anxiety, depression, obsessive-compulsive disorders, trauma, substance abuse or addiction, eating disorders, psychotic symptoms, health issues, and chronic pain.

Mindfulness strategies are taught through a variety of tools and techniques in ACT therapy. It is an attractive option for individuals who desire to learn mindfulness techniques without meditating, as it can be rapidly and easily mastered.



Mindfulness as practice has been existing for millennia and has now been clinically shown to benefit a wide range of difficulties including both physical and mental health problems. It can be used successfully to treat various anxieties such as phobias, panic disorders, obsessive compulsive disorders, stress, depression, various physical health conditions such as cancer, heart diseases, chronic pain, post traumatic  stress disorder and relationship difficulties.
