Service Details

How Psych Therapy can help you;

Our experienced Mental Health Clinicians are skilled in understanding human behaviour.  People experiencing mental ill health often have difficulty controlling their thoughts, emotions and behaviour, our Mental Health Clinicians will work with you to grow your coping strategies, reduce stress and improve your wellbeing


Help for people experiencing:

  • Overwhelm: you might feel that you have so many competing responsibilities that there is no time to rest, too much to do and no light at the end of the tunnel. This can leave you feeling extremely unhappy.
  • Sleep problems: life is completely exhausting, getting out of bed is hard and you feel like you could sleep all day or the opposite, you can’t sleep at all.
  • Emotional outbursts: one minute your ok but the next something has triggered a sudden and dramatic change in your mood- extreme anger, resent, fear or distress.
  • Anxious or intrusive thoughts: we all deal with stress in our lives, this is normal but you shouldn’t feel stressed or worried all the time. Stressful periods should pass and be balanced by non stressful periods. If you’re feeling anxious or stressed most or all of the time you may need some support to manage your emotions.


  • Hopelessness: constant feelings of guilt or worthlessness can leave you feeling completely hopeless like you have no direction or reason for being here.
  • Social withdrawal: we all need downtime to rest but not ever wanting to socialise with friends or participate in activities which you once enjoyed can be a warning sign.
  • Substance abuse: using alcohol or drugs as a way of escaping everyday life can be a strong sign that your mental health is suffering.
