What services and treatment do we provide?
Low Intensity Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
We offer low intensity treatments as a first line treatment. Low intensity treatment is offered by a trained/training Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner and has shown to be effective in helping those with mild and moderate mental health difficulties. Low intensity treatments can be delivered as psycho-educational groups, online programs, and one-to-one appointments. The Low intensity approach uses a variety of CBT based resources to follow a guided self-help approach. These treatments are evidence based and aim to teach skills that can be used in the longer term to maintain your progress.
High Intensity Therapy
High Intensity Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) therapy is offered when you may require more support than low intensity treatments offer. This type of therapy will be delivered to you by a Hi-Intensity therapist and may include treatments such as:
