The broad approach of Turner Psychology is careful selection of evidence-based approaches suited best to the individual and their circumstances. This approach allows the best chance of offering an intervention that is effective while meeting personalised, individual needs rather than simply following a manualised, one-size-fits-all approach.
Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is the most evidence-based of all available psychological therapies and as a result is recommended by the National Institute of Health and Care Excellence (NICE) for a wide range of psychological difficulties. CBT is therefore very often the most appropriate psychological intervention for the type of problems we work with although we never deliver CBT in an inflexible, textbook-style approach that does not cater for individual differences. Instead, therapy will be closely tailored to the uniqueness of the person presenting in the clinic.
Furthermore, CBT techniques may not be appropriate in all situations therefore we carefully integrate theory and techniques from other relevant approaches such as schema therapy, acceptance-and-commitment therapy (ACT), mindfulness-based approaches, person-centred counselling and psychodynamic psychotherapy.
