Counselling

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) suggests counselling for Depression.

Counselling centres on listening to you, and assisting you. You decide which issue regarding your childhood and/or adult life you explore. The objective of counselling is to help you to talk about a difficulty and discover a way forward that is appropriate for you.

Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy focuses on you, and you obtaining insight into the problems you confront. It explores your thoughts, feelings and significant events in your history. Psychotherapy aims to help you develop or find appropriate methods of managing.

Therapy

  • Anger
  • Bereavement
  • Narcissistic Personality
  • Relationship Problems
  • Self Esteem
  • Stress

Thoughts on Mental Health

Clients appreciate mindfulness as something practical, quick and accessible that they can apply in any moment to make a difference. I use the three minute breathing space technique, as defined by Jon Kabat†Zinn, enabling clients to take the time to tune in to what is happening in the present moment and look at ways of reaching forward into the next. Working with clients in the depths of anxiety and, increasingly, with issues surrounding anger management, I have found that mindfulness not only brings relief but also opportunities for choice of action and response. One client reported: 'I feel more connected with myself, calmer, and that I have more choices'.
