Trauma/post-traumatic stress disorder therapy

We offer a number of trauma therapy options to clients at our Borders centre. Evidence suggests that certain types of therapy, such as cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) or eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing (EMDR) are more effective for certain types of trauma, particularly post-traumatic stress disorder (commonly known as PTSD). Our practitioners will work with you using these specialised therapy techniques and can explain how each therapy is believed to help clients.

We can also work with clients using a more general therapy approach such as counselling or psychotherapy. Sometimes clients find these more helpful for dealing with trauma-related issues.

Which therapy approach would be best for me?

Our experienced practitioners have helped many clients recover from traumatic experiences. When you come for your initial session, we will discuss the difficulties you are having and agree a treatment plan with you. This may consist of one approach or a combination of approaches depending on your needs and wishes. It is important to say that not all therapies will suit everyone and therefore the psychologist, CBT Therapist or counsellor will always undertake a thorough assessment with each client before agreeing with them which approach to take.
