At Core Psychology we are passionate about helping people live rich, full and meaningful lives. We believe that excellent psychological care is about much more than getting you through a hard time or helping you to manage your anxiety or depression.
Every member of our clinical team has the training and experience to treat a range of issues including mood problems, stress and anxiety, grief and trauma, and alcohol and drug issues. We can also help you to navigate major life transitions such as divorce, becoming a parent or entering retirement.
We provide individual therapy to adolescents and adults.
For too many people, life becomes a struggle of never feeling good enough, happy enough or worthy enough. We are here to show you how to move past the struggle, and to live the life that you want. Contact us to find out how we can help you.
The first thing we will do together is to help you to understand what has led you to this point, and what is getting in the way of you now living the life that you want.
Together we will develop a positive and practical plan for change and you will develop new ways to handle the difficulties you have had with your mood, anxiety, your relationships, work or family. We will help you to become clear about the life you want to live and the person you want to be and show you the strategies to make those changes. And we’ll be keeping a close eye on your progress to make sure that you’re heading in the right direction.
We believe in going the extra mile for our clients. You will be offered individual sessions and have access to an ongoing range of workshops and practical sessions designed to help you make the changes you need faster.
We know that coming to see a Psychologist can be stressful and intimidating. Our first job is to make you feel completely comfortable. We will be bringing together current research and evidence based best practice in a way that you can easily understand and put into practice for yourself.
We work primarily from an Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) framework. ACT aims to help you to make the changes you need to create a rich and meaningful life, whilst teaching you mindfulness skills to help you to effectively manage the difficulties that life inevitably brings. We also use Compassion Focussed Therapy, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) as well as therapy models designed specifically for parents and adolescents.
After the first session with your Psychologist we will identify your goals and agree on a collaborative treatment plan which will be used as a guide for your sessions. Along the way we will also provide you with reading materials and other tools to help you make the changes you are seeking.
