Life can be full of stressors. Some of us may find ourselves feeling like we're struggling with life but can't quite put our finger on why, others may have a diagnosed mental health condition.
Clinical Psychology is the branch of psychology concerned with the assessment and treatment of mental illness and behavioural difficulties.
As Clinical Psychologists, we are trained to work in the medical sector with an understanding of a number of mental health diagnoses. At Psychological Therapies in Hull and East Yorkshire our priority is working with the individual, in a way that works for them. We understand diagnoses and labels, but take a focus on working with the symptoms and the impact they have on your lfe.
Going to therapy can be a daunting experience. We may wonder 'What are they going to ask me?', 'Will they judge me?', 'What if I can't cope with the thoughts and feelings that I may have as a result of therapy?'. A 'good' therapist should be aware of these and other anxieties and be able to discuss them with you. It is important that you feel comfortable with your therapist and can build a therapeutic relationship where you feel understood and supported. Research has shown that 40% of the changes achieved through therapy is as a result of a good therapeutic relationship.
Because of this, Psychological Therapies in Hull and East Yorkshire have a strong focus on therapy being person centred. It should meet your needs. It should feel accessible and should challenge your thinking in a way that promotes positivity, rather than anxiety or further distress. This isn't to say that therapy should be easy - if it feels easy then it may be that your therapist and you are only working on the areas which are most obvious and not at the root of your difficulties.
As a result of our person-centred approach, and clinical psychology expertise we are able to work using a number of different therapeutic models including

Childrens Behavioural Difficulties
We have vast experience in working with children and adolescents (0-18), including those with developmental difficulties or other diagnoses such as autism or ADHD. We are also experienced in working with those children with traumatic histories.
Anxiety Or Depression
There's a well-known statistic that 1 in 4 people will suffer with a mental health disorder in any given year, so the message is clear – you are not alone. How do you know if you are struggling with anxiety or depression though?
Life stressors such as financial worries, stress at work or concerns around children and other family members can put strain on a relationship. Sometimes this can result in an increase in arguments, a sense of distance between you or infidelity.
Grief is a difficult process and often a lengthy one. Studies suggest that the 'normal' process of a bereavement takes around 2 years.
Lack Of Direction In Life
Life can move along quickly – one minute you have a 5 year plan, and the next, it's 15 years later and your plan is either out dated or not achieved. Sometimes in life we ask the bigger philosophical questions 'who am I?', 'what have I achieved?', 'what do I want to achieve?', 'should I have done things differently?'.
