Our approach

How we work with you

You might not know what to expect from talking to a therapist. Like seeing a doctor or another health professional, the first appointment with a mental health professional is about learning a little bit about each other and what kind of support might be useful for you. We go as fast or as slow as is comfortable for you.

The relationship between you and your therapist is one of the most important parts of therapy. Finding a good therapist is like having someone in your corner – it’s important that you find someone you think you can work with.

All of our therapists have spent many years learning about the human mind, and we use this knowledge to work together with you to find ways of understanding and moving through the challenges you might be facing. Your therapist is your equal – it’s not about the expert and the client, it’s about two people working collaboratively, as a team.

It’s our job to help you feel safe and supported, and to work with you to build resilience, wellbeing and connection to others.

We use a range of evidence-based approaches depending on your needs, including:

  • Cognitive behaviour therapy
  • Mindfulness and meditation practices
  • Virtual EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing)
  • Acceptance and commitment therapy
  • Dialectical behaviour therapy
  • Motivational interviewing
  • Psychodynamic and supportive psychotherapeutic principles
  • Emotion focused therapy
  • Internal family systems
  • Cognitive and developmental assessments
  • Sensorimotor psychotherapy
  • Self compassion focussed therapy
