Welcome to Stephens & Bradley
Forensic & Clinical Psychological Services

In the following pages we hope we have provided enough information for you to draw an accurate assessment of the services we have to support you. Our practice follows the scientist practitioner model of psychology. That means your psychologist is a scientist, a competent researcher, and also a practitioner who applies knowledge and techniques to solve problems you may be/are experiencing.

Stephens & Bradley employs a Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) treatment approach that aims to solve problems concerning dysfunctional emotions, behaviours and cognitions through a goal-oriented, systematic procedure. Essentially we focus on the "here and now" in alleviating psychological distress, whilst appreciating that life experiences contribute to our understanding of 'the world', our beliefs about how 'the 'world' is, and how 'we' are expected to behave in 'it'.

With CBT you develop an understanding of the role your thoughts and behaviours play in creating and maintaining emotional distress. You are taught a range of skills to help you challenge and modify unhelpful thoughts and behaviours, and produce different emotional responses.
