Why therapy?

 

Many different kinds of people seek therapy. They will all have their own reasons, and different problems they are facing. Some of the problems I have helped people with are outlined below, but this is not an exhaustive list:

 

  • Anxiety

  • Body Image concerns

  • Depression

  • Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder

  • Panic Attacks

  • Phobias

  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

  • Low Self-Esteem

  • Social Anxiety

  • Excessive Worry (Generalised Anxiety Disorder)

You may not be sure what to call what you are experiencing, or it may not fit under a label. Some of the difficult experiences therapy can help with include:

 

  • Carrying out certain actions repeatedly or excessively

  • Difficulty concentrating or being motivated at work or on your studies

  • Flashbacks and/or nightmares

  • Health concerns

  • Hopelessness

  • Low confidence

  • Low energy

  • Needing to be totally in control, or to have things perfect or ‘just right’

  • Public speaking anxiety

  • Recurring distressing thoughts

  • Self-criticism – giving yourself a hard time, beating yourself up about things, “being your own worst enemy”

  • Shame – feeling not good enough, finding it hard to open up to or connect with others

  • Sleep problems

  • Unhappiness

  • Work stress

 

Therapy can help

Things may be hard at the moment. You may have been dealing with these problems for a long time, or they may have come on more recently. Therapy can help.

 

Here's what some people I have worked with using both Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and Compassion-Focused Therapy (CFT) said when we finished sessions:

"I used to think I should just get on with my problems, so I just wanted to say thank you for all you have done these past few months. Your kindness, patience and compassionate approach have helped me through the hardest time of my life. Thank you so much, your support has been invaluable and truly appreciated."

Charlotte

28, Lawyer. CFT for Depression

"At first I wasn't sure if I needed therapy, but it has been fantastic. Ramesh was incredibly good at getting me to open up, very professional but caring too. I feel like I'm leaving with a very different outlook than when I arrived."

James

33, Manager. CFT for Depression and Social Anxiety

"Felt like I was totally understood. Ramesh was very sympathetic/patient which helped a great deal."

Indira

41, Finance Analyst. CBT for Low Self-Esteem

"I had heard that CBT was rigid and 'put people in boxes', but I found the help I received to be very flexible and open to engaging with whatever issues come up. I also felt safe in the environment to discuss a wide range of highly different issues."

"Thank You! For all of your help, it really has made the world of difference."
