Our team is made up of Psychological Wellbeing Practitioners and Psychological Therapists.
Psychological Wellbeing Practitioners provide low intensity interventions for clients with mild to moderate depression, based on a cognitive behavioural model.
They undertake patient-centred interviews, identifying areas where the person wishes to see change, make an assessment of risk to self and others, provide guided self-help, liaise with other agencies and provide information about services. This work may be face to face, telephone or via other media. Psychological Wellbeing Practitioners work under supervision and refer on those people, who require it, for Psychological Therapy.
Senior Psychological Therapists provide a range of psychological interventions, including cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). They work with clients who have a range of problems related to anxiety and depression.
Senior Psychological Therapists come from a range of professional backgrounds and include Clinical Psychologists, Counselling Psychologists, , Counsellors, and Cognitive Behavioural Therapists.
Senior Psychological Therapists assess a client’s suitability for psychological interventions and formulate, implement and evaluate therapy programmes.
