What is "talking therapy"?
Talking Therapy is a broad umbrella term applied to the psychological therapies of Cognitive-behavioural Therapy (CBT), Person-Centred Therapy (PCT), Interpersonal Therapy and Family-focused Therapy.
These therapies can help you work out how to deal with negative thoughts and feelings and make positive changes. They can help people who feel distressed by complex events in their lives and people with mental health problems.
Can you meet my child's educational needs?
Yes, our experts offer a bespoke SEN solution. We recognise that each client is unique and faces different challenges and obstacles to learning.
Our SEN work's hallmark is the care and emotionally supportive environment within which it is delivered. We aim to build confidence and resilience within those we help, while reaching measurable learning objectives.
Do you do therapy with children?
Yes, we do work with children (people younger than 16 years of age). However, whether we use talking therapy approaches, play therapy, or art therapy depends very much on the child involved and the consultation's nature. Reach out, and let us discuss.
Do you follow a particular approach to psychotherapy?
Although TalkTree is made up of different therapists and counsellors, each with their own specialisations, what we all share is a belief in the importance of the therapeutic relationship in our psychological approaches. As such, we all lean towards cultivating integrity, acceptance and empathy.
