In addition to this we offer treatment for people experiencing long-term physical health conditions, which impact their mental health. This includes:

  • irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
  • chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)

Are you ready for therapy?

The first thing to consider, are you ready for therapy?

You know you are ready for therapy if you:

  • feel prepared to work on your difficulties
  • are optimistic that therapy can help
  • can form stable relationships
  • can recognise and talk about feelings and thoughts
  • know you are responsible for change
  • can focus on positive outcomes or goals
  • can commit to the process even though you may be fearful or have reservations
  • are not presenting as a risk to yourself or others

The easiest way to do this, and if you are ready, is to self-refer online.

Once we receive your referral, we can look to get you your first appointment booked.
