Psychological Therapy

It is far more common than you might think to be dealing with psychological issues that manifest themselves as problems in your working and private life. This could be unexplained anxiety or anger, feelings of sadness, desperation, mental exhaustion,  trauma, or simply a feeling of being stuck or unable to grasp life’s opportunities.

The problem is that we often don’t see getting help with psychological problems in the same light as we do solving other health issues or life challenges. We may worry that we will be labelled ‘mentally ill’ if we seek out help (which is seldom the case).

Or we may be concerned that work colleagues will find out and gossip (when in reality a number of those colleagues will have sought help for themselves). And we may be unsure as to how to get the best qualified person to help us. In addition, we may have a fear of unlocking deep feelings without the support there to deal with the consequences.

How can you help me with my emotional issues, help that is measured, discreet and which places me in control?

  • Our psychological therapy services are expertly delivered: Our organisation is run by Professor Maggie Cork, a clinical psychologist with over 26 years of experience, registered with the Healthcare Professions Council (HPC), a chartered psychologist; British Psychological Society (BPS) and a member of the Division of Clinical Psychology of the BPS.
    Our team of Associate clinical psychologists all have substantial experience and are also registered with the HPC.
  • We offer a detailed initial assessment, to help you to understand the cause of your psychological issues, and the best way to deal with them.
  • Our evidence-based psychological therapy is tailored to meet your needs and requirements.
  • Our therapeutic approaches are well tried and tested, solution focussed and problem solving in orientation.
  • We have a comprehensive referral network in the event that additional or alternative therapeutic approaches would be helpful to you.

We know that most of the people who seek out our services already have well developed coping mechanisms. Many life experiences can, however, thwart or distort previously well-rehearsed coping strategies, or indeed affect their development in the first place. We can help you to reactivate and refine pre-existing skills and, where necessary, develop new insights alongside new coping strategies.

For many people, an initial consultation can feel somewhat daunting. For the most part we will aim, at the first session, to gain an initial shared understanding of the main factors that have caused your difficulties, and the optimum way to address them.

Our therapy is measured in approach, and tailored to your needs. We will not overcomplicate, but we will identify what you need, through the following:

  • A thorough assessment – Our aim, through providing a very detailed initial assessment session, is to enable you to gain early insights into the difficulties that you have been experiencing.
  • Therapy that is as brief as possible – The course of therapy tends to be brief, aimed at enabling you to feel back in control, swiftly.
  • Duration and type of therapy will be tailored to your specific needs.
  • We offer therapy for a wide range of emotional, psychological and behavioural difficulties for individuals, couples and groups. We offer services to adolescents as well as adults.
  • Avoiding dependence – Right from the start we work with you to ensure that you can swiftly regain control, developing insights and skills that will enable you to become self reliant once more.

You are in control –

  • Our philosophy is based upon a principle of working collaboratively; in partnership with you.
  • You ‘unpack’ as much as you are ready to and at the pace that feels right.
  • Our approach ensures that you have the support that you need.

Discreet –

  • We have consulting rooms at the beautiful tranquil setting of Lion Court, Staunton Harold Hall on the borders of Derbyshire and North West Leicestershire.
  • Measures to ensure complete discretion.

Our experience shows that we can usually help you gain new insights into the causes of your problems, and to redevelop/develop the ability to tackle those problems relatively swiftly. We will also work with you on the best methods for sustaining your progress and preventing a resurgence of those issues into the future.

Our philosophy is based upon a principle of working collaboratively; in partnership with you, on a journey towards greater knowledge and understanding of the causes of your difficulties, and offering the optimum evidence based approaches to tackling those problems effectively.
