Welcome To My Practice

"If You Change Nothing, Nothing Will Change!"

Experience

Hello and welcome to BreakFree Therapy and Coaching! My name is Bradley Edwin. I have been working in the public and private sector for nearly 20 years. In 2003, I embarked on a career in Youth and Community work to help improve the lives of disaffected and disadvantaged young people in some of London's most deprived inner-city boroughs. I started off as a Youth Worker and Life Coach then moved into Offending Management where I worked as a Youth Offending Officer and later a Probation Service Officer with a Community Rehabilitation Company (CRC) and National Probation Service (NPS). More recently I was employed as a CBT Psychotherapist for the National Health Service (NHS), within the Children and Adolescents Mental Health Services (CAMHS). I recently vounteered as a CBT Counsellor with Westminster Drug Project (WDP) and Camden Carer Services. Presently I serve as a committee member for the National Autistic Society - NAS.

During these stints, I worked with a cross section of clients/service users and young people from different backgrounds, experiencing a variety of mental health and behavioural disorders. These issues ranged from a wide spectrum; from mild generalised anxiety disorder (GAD) to severe depression. I have also worked with clients with more complex emotional, behavioural and mental health disorders such as those with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Aspergers, ADHD, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), personality disorder (PD), borderline personality disorders (BPD), schizophrenia, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), psychosis, substsance use disorder (SUD) and alcohol use disorder (AUD) – just to name a few. The culmination of my past and present experiences have significantly honed my counselling and therapeutic skills, and has placed me at an advantage in my career where I can clinically assess and treat you or your child. While I understand some of those problems may be personal and unique to you, I believe with the right commitment, a willingness to change, and a Bespoke Treatment Plan (BTP) / Behaviour Support Plan (BSP), I can help you reach your goal, and lead a re-newed and more fulfilled life.

Approach

My approach as a CBT Psychotherapist and Life Coach, is collaborative and client-centred. My primary aim is to work with clients to help them achieve their desired goals. I meet every client with openness, flexibility and respect. I listen and engage with every client in a non-judgemental way. My perspective is that it is the psychotherapeutic relationship which is central to the success of the therapy - not just the treatment the client receives. My preferred therapeutic approach is Rational Emotive Behavioural Therapy (REBT). REBT approach is a goal-directed and holistic CBT model that can be applied to most types of mental and behavioural disorders.             

While my therapeutic approach is located within the primary Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) framework, I have been trained in the application of other approaches such as Third Wave CBT, Mindfulness, Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapies (ACT); these approaches offer an integrated and client-centred pathway. My objective is to support clients to develop an awareness and insight of how their negative pattern of thinking, behaviour and experiences impact on their current lives and to help them unlock their ability within, to accept change and apply a new and positive way of thinking, behaving and living without needing to compromise their values and self-worth.
