Here at Flourish we offer 1:1 psychological (or talking therapy) to adults, either face to face from our clinic in the centre of Newark-on-Trent, or alternatively via telephone, or using a number of online platforms including Zoom, Whatsapp, FaceTime, Skype, etc. 

Online or telephone therapy may seem a little daunting at first, but it is a great way to look after your mental health whenever attending in person is not possible, e.g., a holiday, travelling for business, etc. It also means you can have access to a therapist who is not necessarily local to you, thereby opening up a whole range of opportunities; both in terms of who you choose to work with, as well as having sessions at a time that is more convenient to you, which may be particularly useful for those who work shifts.

  • Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT)

    Interpersonal Psychotherapy or Interpersonal Therapy (IPT) was developed to address depression, but over time its application has broadened.
