Disorders

This section provides information about specific disorders or diagnoses that clients may be experiencing. It is not an exhaustive list and at Twenty20 Psychology we will treat difficulties that are not listed on this page.

Sometimes clients will have a combination of diagnoses, and no one diagnosis will fully fit our understanding of the client. Labelling a client with a diagnosis is not always important.

As Clinical Psychologists, we will always offer a shared understanding of a client’s difficulties, together with the origins of this difficulty, how it presents now, and ways in which the clients will be able to exit from their difficulties. This is called a "formulation" and is a key part of any therapy. It allows the client to gain a sense of understanding of their difficulties and can be extremely powerful at the beginning of a therapy as, suddenly, a problem that has been around for a long time, becomes clearer to understand.

At Twenty20 Psychology, we always work on the premise that the client is the expert in his or her own world; a formulation must make sense to the client for it to be valid. The Clinical Psychologist and the client will work together to unearth an understanding of the difficulties and ensure that it fits with the client’s individual perspective.

These are some of the difficulties we can treat:

We can also treat specific difficulties related to children, including:
