Therapy

What are Psychological Therapies?

Psychological therapies are sometimes referred to as “talking therapies” and involve meeting with a qualified professional therapist on a regular basis to explore distress and difficulties in a confidential and safe setting. At Psychology Associates we can offer therapy to adults, couples, families, children and groups in a variety of locations across Devon and Cornwall. Our main therapy spaces are in Saltash and Exeter.

Our clinicians often work successfully with clients who have never engaged in therapy before or want to try a different approach or to work with a different therapist. We are highly trained therapists with training and experience in several therapeutic approaches, offering therapy suited to the needs of the individual or group. Our clients tell us that this broad range of training and flexibility enables them to develop an understanding of themselves using a range of ideas and perspectives. Clients comment on the importance of working with a professional they can trust and with whom they feel they have a good relationship. We employ a number of very experienced Psychologists, Well-being Practitioners and Therapists which means that clients have choice in who they see.

How can I see a Psychologist?

At Psychology Associates we work collaboratively with our clients to explore how their difficulties developed, the maintaining factors and identifying strengths and resources that might enable the person to feel empowered to make changes and heal. We work at the person’s own pace, regularly discussing goals and progress to ensure that the therapeutic process feels supportive and manageable. We offer an initial appointment to discuss what the person would like from therapy, what brings them to therapy at this particular time and we discuss how to proceed if the client would wish to engage in therapy. Our therapists offer short, medium and long-term therapy depending on what is required. We can discuss the length of therapy in the first few sessions.

We work with people across the lifespan to address the full range of psychological presentations including:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Stress
  • Low self-esteem
  • Post-traumatic stress
  • Eating disorders
  • Gender and sexuality issues
  • Emotional regulation issues (anger)
  • Loss and bereavement
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Complex developmental trauma
  • Attachment difficulties
  • Behavioural difficulties
  • Phobias
  • Obsessions and Compulsions

At Psychology Associates we can also facilitate transition and signposting to statutory or public sector services if this is in the best interests of the client, or if the client wishes to pursue this.
