Counselling focus on helping clients with emotional distress which stops them being able to function as well as they would like. Counselling can be short as six sessions or as long as three years and aim to get clients who are functioning below normal back to a normal level. Typically the types of problems that are suitable for counselling are bereavement, relationship difficulties, parenting problems, work related issues such as bullying and stress and a general unhappiness with life and family challenges.
Most of my clients have started to look forward to a brighter future, happier in the knowledge that they are unique individuals capable of making their own decisions and choosing what's right for them.
Some people who have sought my help have gained greater insight into their problems by choosing to work with a cognitive model of therapy called 'Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy'. REBT was developed by the late Albert Ellis back in 1955 and helps people to let go of destructive behaviour patterns and start to make some positive changes in their lives.
If you are still unsure whether counselling is right for you, then call me or take our CBT/DBT sceening which might help you. Why wait till you have reached 'breaking point' or have started to suffer ill health?
What my clients say
When I approached Bradley for life coaching, I was lacking in confidence had little belief in myself. Over the course of 6 coaching sessions, I started to develop self belief, self acceptance and felt much more confident than I did before. Thank you for all your help, Bradley.
I completed 6 sessions of CBT therapy treatment with Bradley. I was suffering from severe anxiety and depression and would shy away from undertaking even the simpliest tasks because I felt unenergetic and wortheless. Bradley was recommended to me by a friend, as a therapist who may be able to help with my issues. When I contacted Bradley, I found him to be understanding and patient but moreover very knowledgable of the causes and symptoms of my conditions. I continued therapy with him and within 4 sessions I started to notice differences in myself - I felt more confident and was willing to pursue goals I could only dream of achieving. I am so grateful for Bradley's help and would recommend him to anyone who is experiencing personal issues. Once again thank you Bradley!
