What help can I get?
We offer different treatments for various difficulties. The treatments include:
- Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) which looks at the way you think about things, feel about things and behaviors affect each other and your day to day life.
- Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) helps you to accept that you can’t always change difficult thoughts or feelings and gives you ways you can cope with them.
- Group work (DBT and CBT) done in a group setting with other young people whilst supporting each other and having fun.
- Theraplay (a special therapy designed to help build relationship and trust with those who care for us (usually parents) and increase your own self-esteem)
- Medication (when other treatments don’t work). Your lead professional will complete the assessment with you and will talk to you about the most appropriate way to help
