** Please note that some, usually more severe and acute, conditions might require input from more than one professional or be more appropriately managed within a multi-disciplinary mental health team – usually within the NHS. Other difficulties, particularly where there is a significant level of risk to the individual or others, might require a service where more intensive intervention and crisis access can be provided; which this service cannot accommodate. In any of these circumstances advice will be given as to the appropriate steps to take. Where any risk to an individual or individuals has been identified all our practitioners are professionally obliged to take steps to report this to the appropriate authorities. We are also unlikely to accept for therapy any individual who has a significant substance or alcohol misuse issue.

Please contact us to discuss any queries you may have about therapy, including if your issue does not appear to match any of the difficulties listed above.
