Are you struggling to sleep because of your difficulties?
Mental health problems can be extremely difficult to cope with and can leave you feeling overwhelmed and isolated. We understand how difficult it can be to talk about these issues and how important it is to have a place of safety and understanding to work through them. It can be particularly distressing if these difficulties are new to you or if you are struggling to understand why they have arisen. Mental health problems can manifest in a range of different ways that can affect your everyday functioning and ability to enjoy life. Your thoughts and emotions can be affected and you may experience associated physical sensations. You may be trying to cope in ways that are not helpful to you, for example, avoiding certain situations or people, or using drugs, alcohol, or food to try and manage your difficulties. There may be a knock-on effect on other areas of your life such as sleep, concentration and relationships.
It is possible, with the right support, to understand your difficulties and to learn a range of psychological skills to help you manage and get relief from them. We offer individually tailored treatment for a range of common mental health difficulties, including:
- Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
- Reactions to traumatic experiences such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
- Panic attacks
- Relationship difficulties
- Difficulties managing thoughts and emotions
