The private therapy sessions cover the following areas: – Acceptance & Commitment Therapy – Cognitive Analytic Therapy – Cognitive-behavioural Therapy – Couples Therapy – Dialectical-behaviour Therapy – Mentalisation Based Treatment – Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy – Schema Therapy

Video Transcription

Often, there are alternatives to medication, but I think it very much depends on the severity of the child’s difficulties. So it’s very much based on the individual what we’re seeing, so it would be difficult to sort of make a call on that without a thorough assessment first of all to sort of make a judgment call on that.
