Rotherham Community Therapies Team

Rotherham community therapies teamThe Community Therapies Team consists of staff from a broad professional background to ensure that we can meet the health and social care needs for people experiencing anxiety, depression, personality disorder, post traumatic stress disorder, obsessional compulsive disorder and phobic disorders where there is disruption to everyday life.

We are a recovery focussed team offering short to medium term interventions to help you develop a personalised approach to enable you to meet your individual needs and fulfil your personal goals and aspirations.

We use a wide range of evidence-based interventions as recommended by NICE both in a group setting and for individual appointments. Groups are education based and you are not expected to give personal details about your life and experiences. This a way of learning new skills in the company of people who have similar problems to you own:

Nurse led clinic 

Medicine management in individual appointments with a specialist non medical prescriber supported by a Consultant Psychiatrist.

Social care

To offer basic psycho-social education and social care interventions via individual input or group  work.

Occupational therapy

Assessment of daily functioning and graded work with set targets.

Cognitive behaviour therapy

Offered via group and individual work where necessary. This therapy helps you think about yourself, the world and other people and how what you do affects your thoughts and feelings.

Psychology

This is the study of the mind and behaviour and Psychologists use a variety of approaches based on the condition you are experiencing. Discussion at an introductory appointment with the team would help the therapist and yourself decide which approach would be the most helpful to you. Some of the approaches are delivered in a group format.

Referrals to the team are made by your GP to the Access team. Following a brief assessment the Access team will refer your care to the Community Therapies Team for treatment.
