Psychological issues

Mental health doesn’t discriminate – we can all develop issues at different points in our lives. And whilst it’s normal to feel sad, worried or lonely from time to time, if these feelings don’t shift and you’ve been feeling this way for an extended period of time, it’s important to seek support. The sooner you receive the right support, the better your chances of making a full recovery.


Our clinical team has extensive experience treating a wide range of issues including, but not limited to, those listed below.

Frequently asked questions

Yes, absolutely – this isn’t an exhaustive list. We have tried to include a summary of some of the most common presenting issues. However, emotional difficulties come in all kinds of different shapes and sizes. Even if an issue isn’t listed here, we are still likely to be treating it, so please do get in touch.
It’s very common for people to be struggling with more than one issue and for symptoms to overlap. At the clinic, we always focus on developing a psychological formulation of your difficulties. This means we offer a personalised approach, matching you to the most appropriate treatment for you.

It’s common for people to suffer from a range of different issues in their lifetime. Usually when someone is suffering from emotional difficulties there tends to be an overall vulnerability in this area and so it is common for an issue to resolve for a time and then reappear following a period of stress.


An effective psychological therapy will focus on helping you make sense of your issues in a more comprehensive way. You will develop an understanding of how they link together so that you can manage them in a way that is not isolated to one particular issue but instead based on a more in-depth understanding of yourself – and your own triggers and vulnerabilities.
