What we help with

We treat all common mental health disorders listed and are well aware that often people can experience more than one mental illness concurrently. We have written brief introductions of several of the conditions to help explain some of the common symptoms associated with each of the illnesses. 

If you are in any way concerned that you might be experiencing some of the clusters of symptoms described we would recommend you book an initial assessment with one of our psychiatrists who will explore this further with you and if necessary recommend a treatment plan such as a course of psychotherapy with one of the psychology team, medication or a review with our occupational therapy team.

Feeling stuck - maybe therapy can help? 

You do not need to have a diagnosable mental health issue to warrant support. Many of us in our lifetime can find that we are feeling stuck, or that we find relationships difficult or are repeating unhelpful patterns of behaviour. 

Therapy can offer a really important opportunity to work with a skilled practitioner at a regular time to prioritise yourself and explore some of these feelings. They will work with you to create a safe space where you can share your story and experiences with a therapist who can offer insights and ideas to gently help you consider a fresh perspective on your past and present circumstances.
