Psychology is action, not thinking about oneself.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
CBT is an evidence based psychological treatment recommended by NICE guidelines for a range of difficulties such as anxiety and depressive disorders. The approach focuses on the relationship between thoughts, emotions and behaviours, as well as body sensations. The approach goes further by reframing the way we think in order to change the way we act, this in turns improves how we may feel.

Eye Movement Desentisation and Reprocessing (EMDR)
EMDR has traditionally been used to treat psychological trauma such childhood abuse/neglect, war trauma, road traffic/work place accident. More recently the approach has also proven to be effective with complex psychological presentation, depressive and anxiety disorders, as well as chronic pain.

Psychodynamic psychotherapy works at a deeper psychological level and tends to be better suited for more complex, deep and long rooted emotional difficulties some of which may lead to self-harm or suicidal behaviours. The approach can also be a space for individuals to find a way forward and to become more fulfilled.
