Our Approach

We are Different

The first thing you will find with LPC is that we take time to establish what we call "a psychological formulation" and diagnosis where appropriate. In simple terms, this is basically establishing a reliable psychological hypothesis as to the causes and remedies to your difficulties based on reported experience and our extensive clinical experience. We pride ourselves on transparency and will always give you a solid rationale for the psychological work we recommend and a good idea of what to expect.

We are all Chartered Psychologists and hold doctoral level qualifications and 5 years plus post qualification experience as a minimum requirement. We use established, well-researched treatment approaches and often take before and after measures to monitor the effectiveness of the interventions.

Your Treatment

The length of therapy on offer varies depending on the type of problem or diagnosis. It also depends on the severity and duration of the difficulties experienced. For anxiety disorders e.g. OCD, phobias, social anxiety the treatment can go from 6-20 sessions. For longer standing disorders that may be diagnosed as personality disorders, the duration can be longer, going on for 1-2 years. An estimate of the number of sessions that is likely to be required will be given after an initial assessment.

In short we believe in a collaborative approach, that is transparent and tailored to you. We also work with consultant psychiatrists and can offer assessments for medication reviews.
