We aim to offer a timely and effective service to help overcome the difficulties being experienced and can often offer an appointment within the next week. We use evidence-based therapies and creates a treatment plan appropriate for your family. Often Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) will be used as the first approach. Our experience in providing therapy to children and adolescents means we are able to tailor these therapies to the understanding of your child.
Sometimes young people require a more intensive, or crisis, service than can be offered in private practice. Should that be the case, we would facilitate your referral to such a service.
Interventions offered are likely to be based upon Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Behavioural Therapy, Narrative Attachment Therapy or draw upon other well recognised and evidenced theories. It is possible to access OCP's services through some private health insurance policies.
We both attend regular clinical supervision sessions in order to maintain the quality of the therapy offered and keep up to date with advances in clinical psychology by attending relevant Continued Professional Development Events.
