Exposure Therapy

Exposure therapy is a technique used to help manage anxiety disorders or general fears. Exposure therapy aims to face the patient with fear-related stimuli over time. Gradually, after repetitive exposure to fear, the patient will become desensitised to it. Along with anxiety, exposure therapy has been effective in treating obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and different forms of phobias.

There are various associated with exposure therapy. In vivo exposure requires a patient to face an object or stimuli of fear directly. In contrast, imaginal exposure requires a patient to imagine fear-related stimuli. There are also instances where sensations are brought on in the patient to isolate certain feelings associated with the fear. Virtual reality has also become a popular tool in exposure therapy. After undertaking a course of exposure therapy, patients can rationalise their fears better.  

Exposure Therapy Glasgow

Discussing fears and understanding how to approach them can be an uncomfortable prospect. Here at Psychology Scotland, we acknowledge how challenging it is to face fear or phobias. One of our major priorities has been to create a safe and friendly environment that is accessible. No matter your circumstances or your walk of life, you will be welcomed to our therapy centre. Whether you are new to therapy or have existing experience with psychological intervention, Psychology Scotland can assure you of treatment in a supportive environment.

Our professional therapists will advise you on the treatment plans available. After initial assessment and consultation, you will receive a programme with your interests in mind. All our therapeutic interventions are rooted in strong empirical evidence and have been proven to work. In addition to this, they will also help you maintain an improved state of well-being after therapy. At Psychology Scotland, we want to equip you with tools to live a more positive life. After undertaking a recommended course, you will be able to the skills long after you have left.

If you are advised to undertake a programme of exposure therapy, you can be assured of the far-reaching benefits. It is also a treatment commonly integrated with other forms of psychotherapy, such as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). Any phobias you may have, fears surrounding concentration, or any behaviours you cannot seem to manage, can be alleviated with exposure therapy. Facing fear is daunting, but at Psychology Scotland, we want to be with you every step of the way. After taking exposure therapy, you will be able to manage your life better and live free of any unnecessary worries. Your relationships will improve as a result of exposure therapy, as will the ways in which you deal with conflict or trauma. Taking that first step toward counselling or therapy is often the most difficult, and we reward anyone willing to take this jump. Your journey through therapy can start today; at Psychology Scotland, we are ready to start it with you.
