Psychology, Psychotherapy, Counselling
The outreach service provides consultation, case discussion, training and advice on assessment and management of personality disorder to professionals working in primary and secondary care health services and the voluntary/third sector.
The therapeutic community provides consultation, diagnostic assessment and evidence-based specialist mentalisation-based therapy (MBT) programmes for individuals with complex needs, particularly those with a diagnosis of borderline personality disorder.
There are a range of programmes of different stages and intensity that are designed to help service users develop stability of mood, coherent sense of self, secure attachments and reduce self-harming behaviours. The treatment aims to engage service users in further education and training where relevant, to foster rehabilitation. The programmes offer mentalisation-based individual and group therapy and service users also have access to art and creative therapies, focussed cognitive behavioural groups and encouraged to develop service-user led projects.
The service organises annual open day events and you are encouraged to sign up for our mailing list by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. The service is also closely linked to the City & Hackney Psychotherapy Department.
Referrals received from primary and secondary care professionals and from the voluntary sector.
