This is the body of our work together. Depending on your needs, this can be a course of psychological therapy, coaching, work or individual programmes or online courses. All interventions are collaborative and evidence-based. 


Types of Interventions


Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT). These are all evidence-based.
