Individual therapy

All young people have individual therapy every week usually for an hour. Sometimes this is increased when the need arises. The therapists are qualified, highly experienced in this specific field of work and are skilled in helping the young people to stay motivated toward change.
It is not possible to keep to one single mode of therapy or even say which one is used mostly.

Everything depends on the young person’s style of learning and response. Sometimes it is necessary to use models from different approaches in one session.

Above all else it is vital that the young people know that their immediate psychological and emotional needs are being responded to and if a suitable psychotherapeutic approach will help then that is what we use. Typically, the therapist will draw from approaches including but not limited to:

  • Psychodynamic theory
  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy including Rational Emotive Behavioural Therapy
  • Eye Movement desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) and non-mindful trauma therapies
  • Brief and solution focused therapy
  • Transactional Analysis
  • Systemic Family Therapy
  • Psychodrama
  • Play therapy
  • Gestalt therapy
