Psychology sessions can help people who are struggling with low mood or anxiety. We support people who are feeling stuck or that their negative thinking is holding them back. Perhaps you are wanting to be more proactive or fulfilled in life? If you are unsure if psychology sessions will be helpful to you please feel free to get in contact to discuss this further.
At Ashdown Psychology Services we draw on a range of effective psychological models to inform our practice. Once we have a shared understanding of your problem, we consider this alongside your goals to decide with you the best therapy plan moving forward.
We draw on the NICE guidance and the wider evidence base to inform our work, and also work collaboratively with those we support in order to create a bespoke service tailored to your needs.
