A RANGE OF ISSUES WE CAN HELP WITH:

Abuse:  Abuse is where your treatment by others becomes harmful to you. Abuse can be demonstrated in many forms including emotionally, physically or sexually. Therapy can help you address how this has made you feel, and work through these feelings so that you feel better about yourself.

Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD):  ADD or ADHD usually appears in early childhood. It makes it difficult for people to control their responses. These can be wide ranging, from movement and speech, to attentiveness. This can be helped by Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), which can change behavioural patterns.

Addiction:  Addiction happens when you become abnormally dependant on something, often when you’re trying to escape from other problems you are experiencing. You can be addicted to many things including, alcohol, drugs, gambling, sex, the internet, and shopping.

Anger Management:  Anger is a normal emotion, but it can become uncontrollable and lead to problems for you, your family and your personal relationships.  Anger can show itself as aggression if you become violent and threatening to others. This type of anger can quickly lead to trouble for you and can sometimes cause a breakdown in relationships.  Anger can disrupt your ability to think and act clearly and can lead you to behave impulsively.  Anger is sometimes used as a defence barrier against hurt or embarrassment. When anger is suppressed or turned inwards, it can lead to other problems such as, eating disorders, self harm, drugs, and alcohol addictions.  

Anxiety:  The acute physical signs of anxiety can be: sleeplessness, rapid heartbeat, palpitations, dizziness, irritability.  These signs can often accompany feelings of intense apprehension or worry. These can be common in mental illness or after extreme or distressing experiences. Therapy can help you with feelings of general anxiousness, panic attacks and phobias, by providing you with ways of dealing with certain situations as they occur, and exploring the cause of these.

Asperger Syndrome:  This is an autistic spectrum disorder. If you have this, you may have significant difficulty with social interaction, along with restricted and repetitive patterns of behaviour and interests. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is often a useful tool when working with people with Asperger Syndrome.

Autism:  Autism is a lifelong developmental disability. It is sometimes referred to as an ‘autism spectrum disorder’ or an ASD.  While all people with autism may share some common areas of difficulty, the degree of their condition will affect them in very different ways. Some are able to live relatively ‘everyday’ lives. Others will need a lifetime of specialist support.

Bereavement:  The experience of bereavement or loss can be very varied and your response to it is unique to you. It is quite normal to feel angry or sad when a loved one dies or leaves. You may feel grief, anger, loneliness or denial as a result of loss and bereavement.

Bullying:  Bullying occurs when a person or a group of people are able to seriously affect you, causing you pain and distress. It not only happens in the playground but can happen in many workplaces, education facilities and families. It operates at all levels of society, within all age groups and can be both emotional and physical.

Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD):  A psychological disorder involving, a distorted view of your body image.

Cancer:  Counselling can help you with many of the problems you may face when you have cancer.  There are many reactions to cancer:  You may feel fear, have strong reactions to the changes in your body, or be anxious about your treatment, you may feel very angry, or find it difficult to cope with a feeling of loss of control, you may also feel stressed about having to cope with the side effects of the treatments involved.  It can help to talk through these feelings with someone outside your friends and family because they may be too close to the issues to see them clearly. Therapy can provide you with someone independent to talk with.

Dementia:  Living with dementia can raise many difficult feelings and thoughts. You may find it hard to make sense of what is happening to you and how your life is changing. There could be feelings of anger, confusion, fear and anxiety.  Concerns about your family and friends may be tied to how you are feeling and you may find it difficult to discuss your feelings frankly, with those who are close to you. If you are faced with dementia yourself, or for a close family member, you may find therapy gives you the opportunity to speak honestly about your feelings and work out ways to live with the condition.

Depression:  Depression affects the way a person; functions, thinks, sleeps, eats and feels.  The symptoms can be mild, with a low mood that soon picks up, or it can be a consistent low mood that lasts for several weeks or more. This prevents a person from functioning to their full ability. This is not something that can be changed overnight; it isn’t a sign of weakness or failure.  Depression can be a particularly devastating illness that affects your body, mood, behaviour, and thoughts. Particularly concerning, is the potential for suicidal thoughts.

Eating Disorders:  Eating disorders are extremely common and can be serious or maybe even life threatening if they are not treated appropriately.  The main characteristic of an eating disorder is an obsession with weight. These thoughts can lead to severe consequences concerning health and behaviour. Some people with eating disorders can use food, and the control of food intake, in an attempt to compensate for feelings and emotions that may otherwise seem overwhelming. For some, dieting, bingeing, and purging, may begin as a way to cope with painful emotions and to take control. If these behaviours continue, they will ultimately damage your physical and emotional health as well as your self esteem. Therapy can be helpful in changing thoughts and expectations and by providing support and encouragement.

Financial Debt:  It is very easy for anyone to get into debt.  It can be helpful to discuss the emotional difficulties that debt may raise with a therapist, whilst seeking financial advice at the same time.

Health Related Issues:  Therapy can help anyone who is generally worried about their health, or who needs help in coming to terms with being diagnosed with an illness.

Infertility:  Most experts define infertility as the inability to get pregnant after at least one year of trying. Women who are able to get pregnant but then have repeated miscarriages can also be infertile. Infertility treatments can be physically uncomfortable, time consuming and exhausting, all of which impose great demands on the emotional and physical self of those involved. Talking to someone who is not directly involved can help you to come to terms with the situation.

LGBT – Lesbian Gay Bisexual & Transgender:  Many people are confused about their sexuality and this can cause a lot of anxiety.

Obsessions:  Ideas or mental images occasionally pop into our minds without warning. They may be completely senseless, or something that shouldn’t be acted on, but often these thoughts don’t bother us and we are able to easily forget them. Intrusive thoughts, or obsessions, affect everyone, but some people can’t get rid of them as easily as others.  Therapy, and particularly Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), can help put things into perspective and help you develop coping mechanisms to deal with the triggers of obsessions.

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD):  If you have OCD, you may have repeated obsessions and/or compulsions that make you feel anxious. Most people have unwanted, troubling thoughts occasionally, but if you have OCD, these thoughts are more common and can seem more important.  Obsessions can be defined as thoughts, pictures or impulses which are usually unpleasant and come into mind when we don’t want them. Compulsions describe the behaviours used in order to ‘put right’ or act on the obsession.  It is most common to have both obsessions and compulsions, but you can have them on their own. You could also have more than one obsession and/or compulsion. Looking at patterns of behaviour with a therapist can be helpful.

Panic Attacks:  The acute physical signs of a panic attack can be, sleeplessness, rapid heartbeat, palpitations, dizziness, irritability.

Personal Development:  Therapy can help you use knowledge, skills and experience to develop your self-esteem. This enables you to take responsibility for things like your: health, career, finances, relationships, emotions, habits, and spiritual beliefs.

Phobias:  A phobia is an irrational, intense, persistent fear of certain situations, activities, things or people. The main symptom of this disorder is the excessive, unreasonable desire to avoid the feared subject.

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD):  Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a psychological and physical condition that is caused by a very frightening or distressing event. If you have PTSD, you may often re-live the traumatic event through nightmares and flashbacks. You may also have problems concentrating and sleeping and feel isolated and detached.  These symptoms are often persistent and can be severe enough to have a significant impact on your day-to-day life.

Pregnancy Related Issues:  The experience of pregnancy, whether it was planned for or unplanned, can be confusing and stressful, and can cause you to have mixed feelings. For example, you may have concerns about how it may change your relationships. Therapy can help you understand your feelings towards your pregnancy, or explore difficult emotions following the loss of a pregnancy through a miscarriage, or an abortion.

Redundancy:  Redundancy is a form of dismissal.  This can lead to many different issues including a concern about how to pay your bills, or a feeling of loss and confusion. Working on the practicalities of redundancy through therapy, as well as your self esteem and confidence, can help.

Relationships:  Relationship counselling can help improve the way you relate to those people around you, and allow you to break free from old patterns. This can cover all areas including families and couples.

Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD):  This is brought on when there are less daylight hours.

Self-Esteem:  If you have low self esteem, you may tend to view life in a very negative way which can make things seem hopeless or pointless. You might see yourself as being worthless, and think other people are better than you. You may have difficulty in saying what you really feel and want, or you may lack confidence and find it difficult to be assertive.  Consequently, you may feel that people take advantage of you and treat you badly.

Self-Harm:  For some people, self-harm is a way of coping with painful and difficult feelings and distress. You may harm yourself because you feel overwhelmed and don’t know how else to deal with things. It is usually a very private issue and the motivations and methods used will differ from person to person.  

Sex Related Issues:  Sexual difficulties can occur at any time, especially during times of stress and change. If sex used to be exciting, but no longer seems so, therapy can help you look at why the change happened.

Sexual Abuse: When you are pressured to do something sexual against your will, it is sexual abuse.  You may have suffered abuse and it may be that you blame yourself and did not report it. You may have been influenced to trust your abuser or feel you will be punished for reporting the abuse.  Childhood abuse is not always addressed until sexual problems emerge in adulthood.

Sexual Identity:  Part of our sexual identity is to work out whether we are more comfortable in same sex or opposite sex relationships. You may feel really sure about your sexual identity or it can feel more fluid and changeable.

Sexuality:  Many people are confused about their sexuality and this can cause a lot of anxiety and heartache. You may know from an early age that you are gay, lesbian or transsexual and have stronger feelings for the same sex rather than the opposite sex. You may take longer to work out your feelings and feel confused about your sexuality. You need to give yourself time for your feelings to develop. In time you will know what feels right for you.

Stress:  Daily life can be stressful. Stress can be a positive thing and help you achieve your goals. However, too much stress can put your health at risk and leave you unable to function.  Everyone reacts differently to stress. Some people may have a higher threshold than others. Too much stress can often lead to physical, mental and emotional problems.

Suicidal Feelings:  Many kinds of emotional pain can lead to thoughts of suicide. Your responses to pain are unique. You may reach a point at which you feel you can no longer cope. You may not truly wish to die, but you may need help to cope at that moment. Therapy could help by sharing your thoughts and feelings and working on ways to transform negative thoughts into more positive ones.

Trauma:  Emotional and psychological trauma can be the result of extraordinarily stressful events that shatter your sense of security, which can make you feel helpless and vulnerable in a dangerous world. Emotional and psychological trauma can be caused by a one-time event, such as: an accident, or a violent attack.

Work Related Issues:  The average person spends almost a quarter of their adult life at work. It can give people a sense of purpose, structure and satisfaction whilst also providing the means to finance daily life. It can however also cause: Stress, frustration, poor health, and self esteem issues. 

Whatever changes you are looking to make in your life, we can get you where you want to be.
