Therapy that suits you

What Is Therapy?

Therapy is a collaborative process whereby individuals confide in trained professionals to address emotional, psychological or behavioural challenges. The goal of therapy is to promote self-awareness, facilitate personal growth and improve overall mental wellbeing of the patient.

Through open and non-judgemental dialogue, our expert team at The Oak Tree Practice can help you explore your thoughts, feeling and behaviours, allowing you foster a deeper understanding of yourselves. Our therapy provides a safe and supportive environment for individuals to express concerns, work through past experiences and develop coping strategies. We aim to empower individuals to navigate life’s challenges effectively, build resilience and achieve a fulfilling lifestyle.

What Different Types Of Therapy Do We Offer?

Our psychologists are trained to support individuals, couples and families. Many of our therapists are trained in a number of different therapies and often use an “integrative” approach. This is where we use a combination of therapies which we believe will suit you best.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) helps you manage your problems by altering the way you think and behave. It’s most commonly used to treat anxiety and depression, but can be useful for other mental and physical health problems. CBT focuses on helping individuals identify and change contributors to emotional stress.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

The aim of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is to help you accept what you can’t change and change what you can. ACT helps you accept the things out of your control and work towards living a life you value. This includes popular techniques such as mindfulness.

Compassion Focused Therapy

The main aim of Compassionate Focused Therapy is to teach the skills and attributes of compassion. Compassion focused therapy is particularly useful for those who criticise themselves heavily and who have difficulty in feeling warmth toward, and being kind to, themselves or others.

Family Therapy

Family therapy, sometimes referred to as systemic therapy, aims to support families or those in close relationships to make helpful changes. The focus of sessions is to work on helping the family as a unit, rather than the individuals’ issues.

Couples Counselling

Couples counselling aims to support a couple to improve their communication and make meaningful changes to their relationship. It is not about blaming one person or the other, but finding a joint understanding which helps you move forward together

Psychodynamic Therapy

Psychodynamic/Psychoanalytical therapies are based on identifying individuals’ unconscious perceptions and thoughts which have developed during their childhood and understanding how these affect current thoughts and behaviour.

Person-centred therapy

A person-centred approach is about ensuring that the person with a difficulty is at the centre of decisions relating to their life. A person-centred process involves listening, thinking together, sharing ideas, coaching, and requesting feedback.

Wellness Check

As part of our “Wellness Check”, you will meet with a psychologist to consider how your life is progressing, your strengths and achievements, as well as areas you’d like to improve and ways you might go about that.

ADHD Support

We provide support for adults who have received a diagnosis of Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD) or who are struggling with symptoms of ADHD but have not received a diagnosis.
