Our Services...

We offer a full range of therapy services including:


Relationships

“Someone to tell it to is one of the fundamental needs of human beings.”
Miles Franklin, Australian author.

When a relationship goes through tough times, trying to work things through on your own or talking to family and friends can feel like going around in circles. Looking at the basic relationship we have with others offers an insight to how we operate socially and intimately. Therapy can improve the way you relate to the people around you and help you gain an understanding of what is happening in your relationship and how you can choose to do things differently to gain something different.

Depression

Anxiety and depression are the most common mental disorders in Britain, affecting one in five older people. These debilitating conditions can make life unbearable for sufferers.

During therapy we will explore the different symptoms and triggers that disrupt the normal pattern of your life and draw out a series of goals to help manage the illness enabling you to maintain your health and well-being.

Anger management

Anger is a normal emotion. The thoughts, feelings, behaviours and response to that anger can pose a problem. By identifying those thoughts, feelings and behaviours, therapy can help create an environment to help you identify a different course of action to manage the anger.

Drug and alcohol abuse

Drugs and alcohol can offer a temporary escape from your problems and difficulties. What starts as a means of escape however can develop into a damaging repetitive cycle that affects their health, relationships, work and social life. Therapy will give you the ability to take control of your addiction and put in place techniques to break the harmful cycle.

Anxiety

“Anxiety does not empty tomorrow of its sorrows, but only empties today of its strength.”
Charles Spurgeon

Anxiety is a description that covers a range of problems that include stress, panic attacks, phobias and nervous illness. While the causes of anxiety can be diverse and seemingly deep rooted, therapy can help you manage the symptoms and live the life you choose to lead.

Eating disorders

Anorexia, bulimia and pica (the eating of non-food items) are isolating conditions. Often the sufferer feels a pressure to conform to other people’s expectations. It can be a control mechanism for someone who feels that life is anything but under control. Therapy can help put the illness into perspective and develop a way of managing and overcome the negative aspects of the disorder.

Low self-esteem

Low self-esteem can be an underlying problem that often comes to the surface at trigger points during a person’s life. Events such as the break up of a relationship, the loss of a job, bereavement or children leaving home can make you question your own validity. Therapy confirms your sense of self, it helps you work through how you feel and build on your values and beliefs. The outcome is the ability to value and respect yourself for who and what you are.

Bereavement

Grief and loss are experienced very differently by each one of us. The feelings associated with bereavement can take you by surprise even when you have been expecting the death or loss of a relationship, a loved one or someone close. Talking through and sharing your experience with a counsellor can give the support and guidance you need through your “Cycle of grief”.

Stress

Stress comes in all shapes and forms throughout our daily lives and helps to motivate and energise us. However, everyone will have experienced periods where we have had too much stress and it has caused us to have some degree of malfunction. This over time can be a serious risk to health and wellbeing. Addressing the issues surrounding stress and finding ways to combat the flash points in your life will ensure you remain happy and healthy.

Business Motivation

Don’t know what direction to take in your business, find it difficult to set a course and stay on course, not sure that you are targeting the right audience or maybe you feel you are just treading water and not making the progress you need? It can be hard to look objectively at your business and take stock. Business motivation looks at Maslow’s basic theory of hierarchy of needs and how this relates to how you can feel fulfilled and motivated in a working environment. The therapeutic process can help with the way of working towards your business goals and achievements in other areas of professional life.
