Hi, I am Nathan, welcome. I have over 20 years experience in the NHS assessing, treating and supporting people with mental ill health, I have studied counselling and psychotherapy and I am in the advanced stages of training as a Transactional Analyst (T.A.) psychotherapist. This form of therapy involves the person taking a close observation of themselves and of how those around us shaped our personality. Many people think that this is unchangeable, transactional analysis helps us to analyse our beliefs about ourselves and others and to look at these beliefs in the here and now, test these beliefs and decontamonate our thinking.

Existing as a Neurodivergent person in a Neurotypical world can certainly come with a number of challenges. As a Neurodivergent person myself, I understand how difficult it can be to take the first step in starting therapy. Being proudly and openly neurodivergent I hope to create comfort for my clients in the knowledge that I get it, the struggle is real. Whether decoding social cues, or managing everyday stress, I bring an understanding heart and tailored strategies to our sessions. Beyond neurodiversity, I work primarily with Adults and Young people facing diverse struggles.

Whatever your needs, we can discuss this at the beginning of therapy, so that you get the best out of your Counselling experience.

Life can be quite a challenge at times, and when stress levels reach the point where you feel completely overwhelmed, it usually doesn't only affect your personal life but also your health, your well-being, your performance at work and your quality of life. I offer support and assistance to clients who experience difficulties in handling personal and work related problems, clients who have been exposed to severe stress, or who have trouble coping with change and trauma. Counselling is an effective way to provide you with insights into the way you behave in certain situations.

With 20 yrs Counselling and Psychology experience, I now seek to work with two main client groups. 1) Clients who've already reached a deeper understanding of their issues, symptoms & diagnoses (via therapy &/or self-help etc), but have found that these insights have not been sufficient to end their psychological suffering. And 2) Parents/carers/educators struggling with youngsters who can be violent, self-destructive &/or very defiant. These clients have found that traditional reward & punishment approaches fail to solve (or indeed actually escalate) the problem and are looking for an effective, trauma-sensitive alternative.

Often children show through their behaviour that they are in need of extra support. Play and creative arts are a child’s natural way of expressing themselves and the child can make sense of what is going on in their lives through this. I support children who are dealing with a range of difficulties for example bereavement, anxiety, anger, bullying or parental separation- for example domestic abuse or divorce. At Apex House in Lutterworth, I create a warm and welcoming environment where children feel safe and are able to express how they are feeling, this may be consciously or unconsciously.

If you can identify with any or a number of these issues you may also be lacking in confidence or have a poor sense of self worth. You may feel afraid, lost, confused or could be experiencing debilitating fatigue. These emotions and physical sensations can lead you to feel that life has no meaning or purpose.

Taking that step to see a counsellor can be hard; knowing that you might need some additional support but not knowing how to find the right person to talk to.   As a qualified counsellor it is my role to provide you with the space to talk about what you might need to.  Counselling can help with anything that might be impacting how you feel - your mental health.  From anxiety, depression, panic attacks to relationship difficulties, stress, bereavement or any other difficult feelings.  You might just feel that you need space away from everyone you know to work out exactly how you are feeling.

Parenting Counsellors

What does therapy for parenting look like?

Therapists may work with parents individually, together, or include the whole family to find solutions for the problems a parent faces. Many parent-based therapies work on a parent’s relationship with their children, problem-solving within the family, and analysis of family dynamics. Therapy conducted remotely by video may be helpful in allowing a therapist to observe how families interact in their own homes.

When should a parent seek therapy?

When behavioral problems begin to disrupt the healthy functioning of a family, it may be a good time to look into therapy. If parents find that children are acting out in school, have started using drugs or alcohol, have developed eating disorders, or other similar red flags, a therapist may be able to help.

How long does therapy take for parenting problems?

Depending on the severity of a family’s challenges and the type of treatment utilized, therapy for parenting can last from weeks to months. Cognitive behavioral therapy is a pragmatic therapy type that can be brief, most often ranging from between 5 and 20 sessions. Structural family therapy, which inspects family dynamics, often takes several months. Parent-child interaction therapy is typically shorter-term, lasting between 10 and 20 sessions. For any therapy, the duration will depend on the progress made and results realized.

Can therapy help parents dealing with burnout or stress?

Parenting is difficult. Parents may dismiss or conceal feelings of exhaustion, overwhelm, or escape ideation—imagining withdrawing from their parental obligations altogether. but left unattended, these feelings can have negative effects on the whole family. A therapist can help parents work on the skills they might need to better cope with the burdens of parenting and help them be the best parents they can be.
