Assessment and Therapy

At Northern Clinical Psychology Services we offer assessment and therapy for all age groups, including children, young people and adults.

Whether self-referred, or through solicitors, education, local authorities, rehabilitation and insurance companies or your local GP's, we're always ready to offer the expertise and care everybody needs.




For adults

We use effective, evidenced-based therapies, such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR). All our work is backed by regular clinical supervision to make sure that each individual gets up-to-date treatment that best fits their individual needs.

We can help with difficulties such as:

  • Anxiety problems (such as phobias, panic attacks, health anxiety)

  • Low mood and depression

  • Difficulties after traumatic experiences, such as:

    • adjustment

    • pain

    • loss
