Psychological Therapies

What Does Our Service Do?

The specialist psychological therapy services provide a range of psychological interventions for adult service users from the age of 16 upwards. We are part of Adult Services Division and accept referrals from both primary and secondary care. We offer specialist level Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapy and Dynamic Psychotherapy as well as a service providing Therapy Service for People with a Personality Disorder (TSPPD). We work closely with our colleagues in the Adult and Families, Young people and Children’s Division catering for those service users with complex difficulties who either require more intensive or specialised treatments.

As well as direct treatments we are committed to the teaching, training and clinical supervision of psychological therapists coming from a range of different mental health professions such as nursing, medical, occupational therapy, social work and applied psychology.

How Does Our Service Work?

Patients referred to the CBT or Dynamic Psychotherapy services will be offered an appointment using the choose and book system. Patients referred to the TSPPD will be offered an opportunity to attend an engagement group where they will receive information about the range of treatment programmes available and help thinking about the best approach for them.

Following either an initial assessment or participation in an engagement group patients will be placed on a waiting list until a suitable vacancy becomes available. The current waiting times will be discussed with them and patients kept up to date about any fluctuations to this.
