Psychology Service

Our team comprises clinical psychologists, an assistant psychologist, substance misuse support workers and Dialectical Behaviour therapists.

Our aim is to provide service users with quality, evidenced-based psychological assessments and interventions, while working with the wider team to promote a culture of psychologically-informed care.

Prior to the first CPA, service users participate in a comprehensive psychological assessment, which provides the service user and team with an individualised and compassionate understanding of a service user’s presentation. A psychological assessment and formulation informs a personalised approach to addressing risk and promoting recovery from problems relating to mental health, trauma, substance misuse and offending.

Our Psychologists offer a range of individual and group interventions including; Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, Cognitive Analytic Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing, Schema-focussed, and Acceptance and Commitment approaches.

Psychology promotes a psychological perspective at clinical meetings and facilitates regular reflective practice, case consultations and training with teams.
