What we offer?
We offer individual short-term (6 to 12 sessions) and culturally sensitive counselling in Turkish and also run Behavioural Activation Group Therapies. Our Counselling services operate under a ‘no drugs and alcohol policy’ and have a framework for missed and cancelled sessions.
As part IAPT services Derman offers a range of NICE-recommended therapies for depression and anxiety in line with a stepped-care model:
- Low-Intensity interventions (guided self-help, and group-based physical activity programmes)
- High-Intensity interventions: CBT, Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT), Brief Psychodynamic Therapy and Counselling for Depression
Behavioural Activation Group Therapy is a psychological treatment developed for depression. The idea behind this form of therapy is that your life either consists of too much environmental punishment or too little environmental reinforcement. Behavioural Activation focuses on the present and attempts to make subtle changes to your lifestyle in order to lift the depression.
