Psychology is the study of people: how they think, how they act, react and interact. Psychology is concerned with all aspects of behaviour and the thoughts, feelings and motivation underlying such behaviour. Psychologists will have a degree and likely a postgraduate doctorate, however will not be medically qualified.
Psychologists use different therapeutic methods to help people overcome their problems and get things back on track.
Some of the services that our team can offer include
- CBT – Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
- EMDR – Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing
- Psychoanalytic Therapy
- Psychometric Testing
- Child Psychology.
Don’t worry if you aren’t sure which one is right for you, we will advise you on which therapies might be suitable.
Different therapies will require more or less sessions, and sometimes they can be different durations. Talking therapies often involve some homework for you to take away with you. Some psychology sessions will include psychometric tests which are essentially a series of questions that help the psychologist understand how you think.
Although psychologists and psychotherapists often do exactly the same work, sometimes using the same therapies, more often you will find that psychologists tend to work cognitively. That means they are inclined to use more rational therapies that examine and work with how you think in the here and now. Psychotherapists are more likely to work with your history, and examine how our life experience affects how you live today.
We think it’s important to get the fit right, so we’re looking for the right kind of psychologist for you, depending on what their specialism is, how you and they work, and other factors.
If you’re happy to start, then they will book you in for your next session and the work begins.
