The psychology team provide evidence-based psychological therapies that focus on reducing mental health distress.
You may come across the psychology team as they deliver psychological assessment and treatment for service users across NAViGO. That includes those under the care of the community mental health team , Rharian Fields specialist eating disorder unit , Springboard rehabilitation and older people’s services .
We help people manage severe mental illness through different treatment options. After giving you a thorough assessment of your individual needs, we’ll identify the most appropriate therapy and number of sessions for you.
Psychology may introduce you to any of a number of therapies including:
- Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
- Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR)
- Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT)
We’ll work alongside you and tailor therapy to your needs, taking into consideration factors like your personality, history and current presentation.
How can I access the psychology service?
The psychology service is open to service users currently receiving care from NAViGO.
If you think you would benefit from engaging with psychology, speak to your current care coordinator.
If you aren’t currently a NAViGO service user, but believe your mental health would benefit from talking therapies, you should contact Open Minds in the first instance.
