Information on Psychology sessions

At outlook, we use evidence based therapies to support people based on their specific needs . This will be discussed in your initial appointment. The main models we use are: Acceptance and Commitment therapy (ACT), and Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT).

As well as having a safe and supportive space to talk, we will often explore:

• Ways to handle difficult thoughts, feelings, or sensations so they have less impact on you
• Clarifying what matters to you (your personal values)
• Taking steps towards your goals.
