HUMANE Clinic Therapy Service is for individuals who experience mental distress, and are seeking to makes sense of and work through their difficulties. It can be useful for individuals to have a deeper understanding of the origins of their distress, and work towards personal meaning and empowerment, as part of moving forward in their life.
The clinic provides alternatives to the illness model - viewing the person experiencing difficulties as best placed to make sense of their own reality. HUMANE Clinic works with people experiencing a wide range of mental health experiences and difficulties. In addition to face-to-face individual or group therapy, Skype facility is also available for individuals not able to travel to the therapy rooms.
HUMANE Hearing Voices and Psychosis Clinic is available to work alongside individuals experiencing voices, visions and other unusual or alternative realities - experiences that may have been labelled as psychosis. Facilitating approaches consistent with the international hearing voices movement, HUMANE Clinic acknowledges the mental distress that an individual and those around them may suffer. The approach at the HUMANE Clinic is to develop an understanding of 'psychosis' as a potentially meaningful experience towards a journey of personal growth and recovery.
Recognising the experience for family members and people caring about an individual in mental distress, the clinic is available to consider and work through the experiences of being alongside a loved one as part of a journey of recovery.
