Welcome to the Evidence-Based Therapy Centre

Special measures regarding COVID-19

 We understand that this is a worrying time for everyone. Indeed the psychological stress of the Covid-19 crisis can have significant impact on peoples’ underlying psychological wellbeing and exacerbate underlying physical and mental health difficulties. This is why we are committed to continuing to provide as safe and effective a service as possible in the circumstances.

 

At EBTC we remain open for business but have switched all of our appointments to teleconferencing via Skype or Zoom. If you are a current patient then your therapist will call you to discuss how this works and to see if it is right for you.

For new clients to the psychology service, we are also conducting assessments via Skype or Zoom. You can speak to one of our admin team about how this works and how to set this up.

For physiotherapy patients, we are able to switch many to teleconferencing appointments particularly if the mainstay of the treatment is exercise therapy. We are also seeing new patients via teleconferencing. This is particularly helpful for people who have recently had an operation and need urgent rehabilitation or if you have recently had a baby and need the expertise of our specialist pelvic health physiotherapist.

Although switching to “telehealth” is new and may seem daunting to many people, we have been using these methods with many patients over the past few years. Our therapists also have considerable experience of teaching and supervising other healthcare professionals via teleconferencing. We understand that it may not work for everyone but it can be a very good option to continue your therapy in the current challenging circumstances. If you are unsure, you can discuss any concerns with your therapist or simply give it a go for a couple of sessions and see if it is working well for you.

 

If you have any other concerns then our admin team are available on 091 727777

What is evidence-based therapy?

evidence based therapy centreEvidence-based therapy involves three concepts. The first involves using the best available research to inform clinical practice. The second is listening to the patient to understand what is important to that individual. The third involves using the expertise of the clinician gained through undergraduate and postgraduate training. Our approach embodies all of these concepts to get the best possible outcomes for our patients.

It takes a lot of dedication, effort and expense to stay up-to-date with all of the latest research. At the Evidenced-Based Therapy Centre we are committed to this challenge as ultimately it brings the most efficient and effective treatment for our patients.

Asking the important questions of your health care provider
When you go to see any healthcare professional it is important to be empowered with as much knowledge as possible about your condition and the treatment options.

This “health literacy” is core to our ethos at the Evidence-Based Therapy Centre and we encourage our patients to challenge us with lots of questions. After the initial assessment, you should have a good understanding of the reason for your difficulties and be well on the way to having answers to the following questions

• Why has this happened to me?
• How long will it take to get better?
• What can I do to help myself?
• What can health care professionals do to help me?
• What is the relevant research evidence?

If you think we can help, we would love to hear from you.
