Psychotherapy

What we do

The Abington Clinic offers a range of psychotherapy treatments to help you gain insight into emotional difficulties or areas of distress, establish a greater understanding of your motivation, and enable you to find more appropriate ways of coping or changing your thinking or behaviour. At our specialist psychotherapy clinic in Northampton, we explore your feelings, beliefs, thoughts and experiences in a structured and safe way so that you can achieve your goals and/or remove negative patterns of behaviour.

At The Abington Clinic, we review and treat every patient on an individual basis in order to help overcome and correct the problem areas or behaviours quickly and effectively, so that we can help you find the capacity for rapid improvement within yourself.

What we treat

As professional psychotherapists, we believe that cognitive behavioural treatment (CBT) can successfully treat mental health, emotional and many psychiatric disorders. By giving you a better understanding of what helps you to feel more positive and/or less anxious and identifying your feelings and ways of thinking you will become better at coping with difficult situations.

Our psychotherapists offer fast, effective, and professional solutions for psychological problems, with expert help for problems such as:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Panic attacks
  • All phobias (e.g. needle phobia, fear of flying, vomiting)
  • Obsession and compulsion
  • Post-traumatic stress (PTSD)
  • Work-stress, motivation, leadership & conflict
  • Temper
  • Confidence building & assertiveness
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Gambling problems
  • Eating problems

The benefits

The aim of psychotherapy is to help you understand what makes you feel positive or anxious, as well as learning to acknowledge and accept your strong and weak points. This means that over time you will become better at identifying your feelings, and are able to improve the way you think and behave in order to cope with difficult situations. And whilst psychotherapy helps you to alleviate the most obvious symptoms, it also helps you to live a healthier life by changing old patterns of behaviours to new ones, which are more focused on being positive.

A psychotherapy treatment involves listening and talking and trying to establish a healing relationship with your therapist. It’s not about someone telling you what to do and giving you advice, it is more about the therapist empowering you to make informed choices and for you to be happier with yourself, other people and certain situations in the short, medium and long term.

What you can expect after your psychotherapy treatment

Because every person and their symptoms are different, you may need several psychotherapy treatments at The Abington Clinic before you start to feel better. However over time you should notice that your symptoms start to diminish, and your relationships and levels of self-esteem start to improve.

It is worth mentioning that therapy is an active process, like a journey of self-exploration. The therapist can offer guidance, but the ultimate responsibility for changing is with you. If you set your own goals for what you want to achieve and by when and work hard, the benefits and changes will be greater.

Psychotherapy treatment prices

As we deal with people and their problems on an individual basis, no course of psychotherapy is ever the same. As a result, prices can vary depending upon the nature of your behaviour problem and the course of treatment or therapy that is followed.

Once we have had an opportunity to assess and review your case and before beginning any treatment, we will always advise you of the type of costs that you can expect. Only when you are 100% happy will we start a range of flexible therapy sessions to help you to make the right changes to your behaviour and modify your outlook for a happier and healthy life.
