We offer service receivers specialist psychodynamic psychotherapy assessments that may lead on to an agreement to benefit from psychotherapy. This can take a number of forms including individual therapy in brief and long-term sessions, or group psychotherapy which takes place once or twice a week.
Our service receivers commonly have long histories of complex and severe mental health problems that are caused by past traumatic experiences. These problems will often take the form of anxiety and/or depression along with co-morbid personality difficulties. Service receivers may have a dual diagnosis and will often require a complex package of care. Underlying factors may have limited the benefits gained from other forms of therapy, and rendered the problems difficult to treat.
Those who are motivated to change, willing to explore the past and present causes of their problems and have a capacity to take part in the work of therapy will benefit most from this service.
Intensive Psychotherapy Group Programme
Emotional difficulties can often be traced back to our earlier experiences of relationships, which can lead to psychological, relational and occupational difficulties in the present. One of the main ways in which this causes distress is by adversely impacting upon our current relationships.
By getting people together in groups we create the opportunity to look, not only at the psychological difficulties themselves, but also how they influence our relationships with others. When we interact with each other in the groups, we are recreating the interpersonal experiences met within everyday life. Situations will emerge which can be used positively to facilitate a deeper understanding of ourselves and others.
The programme values the idea of community spirit. We recognise the importance of an individual’s contribution to and the receiving of care from the psychotherapy community.
