The Touchstone Centre

The Touchstone Centre provides two structured day programmes, intensive group psychotherapy and individual psychotherapy sessions. The Centre uses the model of Mentalization Based Therapy (MBT), a time-limited therapy that aims to improve your ability to make sense of your own actions and feelings and those of others.

In everyday life we need this ability to help us understand what is going on in our minds and what is going on in other people's minds. This ability to understand what motivates us and others to behave the way  we do is known as 'mentalization'.

This can be very important in helping us to regulate our emotions and impulses and in forming fulfilling, meaningful and enjoyable relationships.

Psychotherapy covers a variety of different talking therapies used to treat depression. Most psychotherapy services involve talking to a licensed professional during a scheduled series of appointments.
These are psychological treatments in which improvement in a person's symptoms or wellbeing is achieved by talking with a therapist or counsellor rather than, or as well as, taking medication.
