RAFT Counselling and Therapy
I am a UKCP registered psychotherapist who provides short term solution focused counselling and long term psychotherapy dealing with issues from stress, depression, phobias, anxiety and every issue that people need the space to work through.
My training as a psychoanalytic psychotherapist means that I can help resolve deep issues usually stemming from childhood, and my post graduate diploma in cognitive behavioural therapy means I can provide symptom relief in a relative short period of time by addressing the distorted thinking and behaviour that underpins this.
Going to therapy was a huge decision for me, I had deliberated with the idea of seeing a therapist for years but never had the courage. I have always thought I could manage on my own, I was so wrong to think that and the therapy process with Rob has given me more strength than I ever thought was possible.
Rob was brilliant and it is the best thing I have ever done. I have been able to understand my feelings, emotions and come to terms with my past a lot more. I had so many barriers up with my emotions switched off - Rob helped me shine a light on them and supported me to get through each barrier with care.
Before therapy, I thought I could go through life with a falsified front and no-one would know. Through the process people around me started to see positive changes and started to see who the real me was.
Rob listened, he never belittled anything or made me feel silly. He was very understanding and supported me immensely. Rob put me at ease and made me feel so comfortable.
We used theories to explain how I was feeling, related them to my life as a guide to look at how to change my mind set and overcome a huge amount of negativity. We also worked on dream analysis to uncover and obtain an understanding of my unconscious, it was an enlightening part of the work we did together. I can now use this when I need to understand how I might be feeling about things in my life.
I feel very fortunate that Rob and I worked so well together. I have my personality, confidence and drive back which I had lost for so long. Rob has given me a tool kit for life, for that and everything noted above, I will forever be eternally grateful to Rob to have enabled me to know and find myself again.
As an experienced counsellor I offer clients a safe environment to explore the challenges that they are facing. I will help you become reflective about patterns of behaviour that may be holding you back and allow you to look at new ones to enable you to move forward. Coming to counselling may seem daunting but it often is an opportunity for a client to feel 'heard' for the first time.
