Clinical therapy services
The AccEPT clinic
Accessing evidence-based psychological therapies
offers psychological treatments for people with severe and recurrent
depression. The clinic specialises in psychological therapies that are
supported by evidence and recommended by the National Institutes of
Clinical Excellence. These include cognitive behavioural therapy for
those who are currently depressed and mindfulness based cognitive
therapy to help people with a history of depression stay free from
depression. Many of these treatments are conducted in group sessions,
allowing more people access to treatment and bringing the added benefit
of service-users being able to share their experiences with others.
