Intensive Psychological Therapies (IPTS)

Our IPTS team provides specialist therapy support for people with enduring emotional and psychological mental health problems, such as personality disorders and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

In particular, we aim to help people who have complex and long-standing difficulties managing their emotions and relationships.

We use a range of effective, evidence-based treatments, including:

  • Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT)
  • Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT)
  • Radically-Open Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (RO-DBT)
  • Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR)
  • Prolonged Exposure therapy in DBT (PE-DBT).

We also run peer support groups in collaboration with the Recovery Education Centre (REC).

The IPTS employs a dedicated team of specially-trained psychologists and therapists, and has won national recognition as a model of good practice.

You will need a referral from a Community Mental Health Team to access the service.
