These include Brief Therapy, ACT and CBT techniques.
Do you feel you don’t have goals or you can’t achieve them although you have tried everything? Do you feel paralysed or overwhelmed facing certain situations? Do you feel everything is annoying or your anger, sadness or fear last for long time? Do you feel stuck with some thoughts and you can’t stop overthinking them? Do you see these features within a member of your family? I think everyone will feel like this over the course of our lives, even it can be adaptative. However, sometimes we can struggle to find clarity and understanding , at the same time that respect both ourselves and others.

I use traditional forms of CBT, alongside approaches such as mindfulness, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy ( ACT ) and Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT).
If anxiety is getting in the way of you living your life the way you want to, we can work together to change that. Anxiety can creep up on us and there doesn't need to have been a big trigger for it to have a real impact on our lives. I work with people to overcome a wide range of anxiety based difficulties, such as general worry, phobias, panic attacks, obsessions and compulsions and PTSD. Cognitive behavioural therapy can help you understand your anxiety, become less fearful of it and find ways to tackle it. Therapy can also help you to recognise what you are already doing that is helpful - there is always more than you think!

We can use theories and ideas from CBT, ACT , MBCT, Gestalt, Psychodynamic, and Person-Centred therapies.
Working on a short term basis with more specific issues, or of a more open ended and explorative nature, we will uproot the negative thoughts and actions that may be causing your distress, and with careful and non-judgemental attitudes begin to foster new seeds that we can water and tend to as the work continues. Hopefully our sessions will help you to grow skills of reflection and awareness that can be maintained outside of therapy. Previous sessions and my years of experience have proven this is possible and necessary to begin to live fuller lives.

FIND SELF- ACCEPTANCE , OVERCOME YOUR PAST, AND LIVE FEARLESSLY. The search for a contented and satisfying life is not easy. It’s even more difficult if you’re wrestling with a negative inner voice or baggage from your past. Perhaps you’ve forgotten what real joy or feeling safe is like? I understand. It’s not your fault. It’s because you have a tricky human brain with a sensitive threat system, that can tie you up in knots trying to cope.

My work is primarily informed by Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, but I also integrate ideas from Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, ACT and Humanistic Psychotherapy.
I work with clients who experience a range of psychological difficulties including depression, anxiety, social anxiety, addictions, trauma, relationship difficulties, OCD, body dysmorphia, and personality disorders. Sometimes clients may need a limited number of sessions for a specific difficulty, at other times longer-term work may be more appropriate. My aim is to create a safe, non-judgemental environment in which difficulties may be constructively understood, and appropriate strategies can be applied to address them.

Acceptance and Commitment (ACT) Counsellors
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a type of psychotherapy that helps you accept the difficulties that come with life. ACT is a form of mindfulness based therapy, theorising that greater well-being can be attained by overcoming negative thoughts and feelings. Essentially, ACT looks at your character traits and behaviours to assist you in reducing avoidant coping styles. ACT also addresses your commitment to making changes, and what to do about it when you can't stick to your goals.

If you're looking for ACT therapy in Birmingham or for a Birmingham ACT counsellor these professionals provide acceptance and commitment therapy, ACT group therapy, ACT therapy, and acceptance commitment therapy. They include ACT therapists, ACT psychologists, ACT psychotherapists and ACT counsellors.
