BEING YOUNG IS NOT EASY. From panic attacks, to a bad habit of browsing Instagram and Tinder at 4am - I specialise in helping young people (age 15 to 25) build a healthier day-to-day life by talking about their lives, problems and thoughts. Do any of these statements describe you: "My coursework is just too much, I feel miserable, money problems, I lost someone I loved, I worry my girlfriend is cheating, I'm putting on weight, I suffer bad anxiety in normal situations, I'm having panic attacks, I need to understand myself right and get better now."

Would you like to try Walk & Talk Therapy in a picturesque setting? I also offer Zoom appointments. The way that I work is that I listen to your story, ask questions and try to understand what is important for you. My aim is to try to get a picture of how you feel in your life and in your interactions with people. I believe that feeling heard is incredibly healing and that there is immense benefit in having a time where we can regroup and repair. Being offered the opportunity to work with you is something I take very seriously in terms of privacy, confidentiality, punctuality, reliability, clinical supervision, focus and respect.

We are all unique but our shared humanity means that we all struggle.With over 40yrs experience of working in mental health I have learnt that one of the most helpful interventions for a human in distress is to help them clarify their values and to use this information as leverage to facilitate the inevitable behavioural change that is needed for a life lived well. I have found that combining CBT with Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) promotes symptom reduction but also helps patient's to reconnect with what is important in their lives. If you're reading this I'm guessing you're feeling stuck-maybe I can help with that.

Highly recommended effective therapy: "The speed and accuracy by which Chris was able to work out our personalities and provide genuinely useful insight was, quite frankly, incredible.  This insight, hard as it was to digest, proved to be so profound to me that I was finally able to unpick what had being going on in my relationship.  His ability to sum up the relationship in one stark metaphor was a watershed moment for me.  Through his insight and continued support I have managed to start to discover myself again and to regain my confidence which had been systematically dismantled."  Mr. M, 2019, Canterbury.

At various points in our lives we may find ourselves needing a little extra support. Sometimes the only way to get a handle on a problem is to share it with a complete stranger in the knowledge that you will not be judged, but supported toward reaching your goals. Whether those goals are to understand yourself better, increase your confidence or self-esteem, move on after divorce or bereavement or to begin to move past traumas and understand what is holding you back in your current life. I am here to help you explore what is happening for you right now.

When we exclude parts of ourselves, we leave ourselves feeling incomplete, lost or frustrated. I aim to increase awareness by focusing on the present experience through your feelings, thoughts and senses, your connection with your body, as well as your ways of relating to others. To gain a better understanding of yourself, it is sometimes necessary to embark on a journey of self exploration. As awareness increases, you can open up to the possibility of experiencing and feeling compassion for the aspects of yourself you find hardest to accept and ultimately aid in self healing.

You may be finding life tough, finding it hard to put your finger on what’s causing distress. General feelings of sadness and low self-esteem may be making it difficult to see who you truly are. Your sense of purpose may be ebbing, or indeed gone altogether. Instead, there may be a constant, nagging feeling of wishing things were different. But not knowing what that different looks or feels like. Whether or not it even exists. Do you feel your voice is being smothered by work pressures, or your personal aims are being crushed?

With 20 years experience as a Counsellor & 10 years as an Art Psychotherapist within various NHS, Education and Community-based services, I've since specialised in EMDR therapy and am now an Accredited Practitioner with the EMDR Association UK & Ireland. Although EMDR is widely recognised as a trauma-focused therapy, it can effectively treat a broad range of issues, often in a relatively short-term time-frame. EMDR helps process intense emotions, self-limiting beliefs & behavioural patterns in the present which seem stuck on repeat, as they often track back to distressing or overwhelming relational-issues or life events in the past.

Through therapy you can find out things about yourself that will help you understand what is going on for you and help to develop your own understanding and gradually learn more about your innermost parts and lead the way to greater acceptance of yourself. This is awareness and will help you feel more empowered to choose to do things differently. I believe this work is about being true to yourself rather than being who you think you 'should' be and to reclaim those parts of you that have been denied. It is both challenging and rewarding work leading to emotional healing and growth.

Depression Counsellors
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy by depression counsellors in Canterbury. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
