Treatment Models Available in Whitstable
Whitstable Bay Therapy Services consists of a network of Psychotherapists and Clinical Psychologists who are able to offer a range of different evidenced based interventions. These include:
Adolescent work. Using an Integrative approach the psychotherapist treats many of the issues affecting adolescents including emotional distress, anxiety and depression, self-esteem, substance mis-use issues and eating disorder issues.
Art therapy is a form of psychotherapy that encourages people to express and understand emotions through artistic expression and the creative process. It involves the creation of art in order to address emotional issues that can be confusing and distressing. It increases awareness of self and others. This in turn may promote personal development, increase coping skills, and enhance cognitive function. It can be particularly useful when talking can be difficult.
CBT explores core conflicts and challenges faulty thinking in order to bring about change in thoughts and behaviours.
EMDR is an evidenced based treatment for those suffering from PTSD or trauma.
Family Therapy works with couples or families in intimate relationships and explores family systems and interactions to bring about change and improved psychological health.
Mentalisation Based Treatment (MBT) can be offered individual or in a group setting. This is an evidenced based treatment for personality difficulties that helps the client to be able to think more clearly and avoid or reduce impulsive thinking and behaviours.
Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy explores the connection between events in early life, which may be unconscious, and the current difficulty or distress. Psychotherapy offers a reliable setting to explore these issues, feelings and memories without fear of judgment. This type of therapy can offer a more in-depth treatment and is generally over a longer period of time.
Psychotherapy can be either face to face on a weekly basis or more frequently, often with the client having the opportunity to use a therapy couch. Brief psychotherapy provides the opportunity to help you explore the unconscious thoughts that impact upon your daily life and relationships over an agreed length of time.
Supervision is offered individually or as part of a group. We offer a range of supervision models including CBT, psychodynamic, psychoanalytic, family or couples and integrative.
