Talking Therapy Explained

Talking Therapy is often referred to as psychotherapy or counselling. It is a form of treatment that involves talking to a trained professional in a confidential space to explore and understand thoughts, emotions and behaviours. The primary goal of talking therapy is to provide individuals with a safe, supportive and non-judgemental environment to address emotional or psychological challenges, improve mental health and promote personal growth and well-being.

People seek talking therapy for various reasons and the decision to start is often influenced by a crisis, individual circumstances, experiences, or need. Some common reasons why people might seek these services include:

  • Mental health concerns.
  • Stress, anxiety, and depression including feeling unable to cope.
  • Relationship issues.
  • Trauma.
  • Addiction, including smoking, chocolate, and binge eating.
  • Life transition and difficulties adjusting.
  • Self-discovery including exploration and personal improvement.
  • Low self-esteem and self-confidence

There are many kinds of talking therapies, each with their own effective techniques and approaches. I choose to use a combination of Life Coaching, Hypnotherapy and Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP).

Seeking these services can feel like a huge proactive step that often requires great courage. The motivation might be to address any unwanted emotional, psychological, or interpersonal concerns which may relate to a specific event. The aim will be to eliminate these unwanted constructs, promoting self-awareness, and fostering personal growth and well-being.

Career, relationships, health, and finances are the four main quadrants in life and often it is simply a question of redressing the balance so that you can thrive in each of these four areas. If you are reading this now, I believe that you are ready to take this step, so why not call me for a free twenty-minute consultation and let’s get you going?

No two people are the same, so all my treatment programmes are bespoke, designed to meet the requirements and goals of each individual. I usually integrate all three disciplines, which I believe makes me a more effective coach enabling me to greatly enhance your therapeutic programme and accelerate your results.

I want to make appointments as easy as possible for you so offer sessions in person in clinic or online over Zoom.
