About

Have you ever found yourself trapped, possibly disliking who you have become and feeling others blaming you too? Have you found that you haven’t reached your full potential and you're not where you expected yourself to be in your life? Do you ever feel disappointed in yourself? We can work together to help you understand how you came to be the person that you are today, and how to make positive changes in your life. Through our work together we will start to bring awareness to your emotions, thought processes, and behaviours – which will enable you to design ways to manage your life.
In our sessions I tend to work flexibly, drawing on a range of specialisms to relationally explore what makes you, you. We collaborate together at your pace to help you manage what you have been experiencing, and then work together to help you take back control. My passion is to support people to make sense of what they are experiencing, and become free.
I’ve been supporting people just like yourself for over a decade to make positive sustained changes. By coming here, you’ve already taken some really positive and often brave steps -I would encourage you to continue that journey, by either giving me a call or sending me an email for a free discussion. I can discuss concession for those in financial hardship.

Ben Groves's Groups

Parenting Therapeutically

We traditionally parent in the style/technique that our parents did, often with a strong desire to do it differently. Additionally due to hormonal changes and unconscious triggers around parenthood, we can get blind-sighted by things from our past, often things that we thought we had processed. In this group we explore the neuroscience, psychology, and evidenced based practice of parenting, with space for 'live' processing of difficulties, and experience learning opportunities. I have over a decade of experience working within the field of therapeutic parenting, as well as a wealth of research to support this group.

Practical Implications for Research

Are you a counselling or psychotherapy student, or are you just interested in the psychology of what makes you, you? I hope so as in this group we will be considering cutting edge pieces of research, linking them to current bodies of theories, and considering what these can really mean to us in a practical sense. This will be a safe group to bring new thinking to yourself and others in your life, and starting to embed evidenced based research.

Toxic Masculinity

What kind of man are you? How does your role as a man impact on you and those around you? Some say that it's never been harder in history to be a man, and recently there has been lots of thinking which considers these difficulties stemming from 'toxic masculinity'. There is a large base of dominant discourse culture which has embedded this toxic masculinity, often unconsciously in our thinking and behaviour- and only by bringing light and thought to this can we effect change. If you want to be a changed man/partner join us to find out more.
