Which Talking Therapy is Best For Me? Talking therapies Types.

There are many different types of psychological therapies. Clinical Psychologists are trained to tailor-make better therapy for you.

The choice of talking therapy is usually determined by

  • your preference
  • an understanding of how your problems started,
  • why they are hard to change without therapy and
  • what you want to change.

Research shows that therapy can help many people.

Clinical Psychologists offer Formulation (a way of understanding how the problems started and what keeps them going). This means therapy can then be targetted as needed.
