What can therapy help with?

It is believed that 1 in 5 people in the UK will experience mental health difficulties at some stage in their life - and depression is common. Depression is a constant low mood and loss of interest in activities. People can feel hopeless, unmotivated, or have thoughts of disliking themselves.  It can get in the way of living the life we truly want. Therapy can help understand if anything specific triggered these symptoms, how they impact on your life, and what strategies can be learned to help drive you towards a preferred future.


Whilst everyone experiences anxiety from time to time, maybe when facing a test or challenge, for some people the symptoms of anxiety can persist and get in the way of day to day living. People may have physical symptoms of anxiety (such as heart pounding or difficulty breathing) and feelings of worry or fear that seem uncontrollable. Therapy can help form strategies to manage these thoughts and feelings, making them less likely to impact on what you want to be achieving.

Addictions can be found in many forms, and are considered to be symptoms of an underlying, unresolved challenge to our mental health. Addictions can help us avoid these challenges, but in the long term often bring more difficulties, increasing our burden. Therapy can help understand the reasons that underlie addictions, and find healthier ways to manage as well as resolve the underlying difficulties.


Many people may have a traumatic experience at some point in their lives. For some people, this can give rise to uncomfortable thoughts, feelings and behaviours, including unwanted memories of the trauma, unpredictable emotions, strained relationships and even physical symptoms. Therapy can help move past these blocks so that the trauma memories can stay where they belong - in the past.

Work Stress

We often devote much of our time to work, and in an ideal world this environment is fulfilling and enjoyable. Sometime though work can be a source of significant stress and pressure, which can have an effect on our work life, and life outside work. Therapy can help unravel this stress, creating strategies to help create a healthier work and environment - and a healthier you.


Grief is a journey that most of us will experience at some stage in our lives, but it is one that can be profoundly difficult to navigate through, with many factors that can make the process more challenging. Therapy provides a quiet space you can reflect on the memory of those who have passed away, and untangle obstacles that may be making this process more difficult.

Supervision is a service in which professionals from a variety of fields can use a confidential space to reflect on their working practices, interactions and desired outcomes, debrief, develop goals for professional development, consider the boundaries of professional and ethical guidelines and gain an external view to challenges that may be faced. Supervision can be beneficial in managing pressures work may bring, and help form clear, future focused goals.

Other mental health difficulties

Mental health is something we all have, and usually it waxes and wanes over our lifetimes. Just like with physical health, there are a myriad of ways our mental health can feel out of balance. Psychologists are trained to work with any difficulties we can experience with mental health, and we can work together to help alleviate a wide range of challenges.
