So often clients' unhelpful experiences of therapy are attributed to their therapist being "silent", "difficult to connect with" or (at worst) "like a brick wall". The psychologically informed, dedicated and authentic experience I deliver requires me to be active, present and, primarily, something resembling an authentic human being whom I hope you will trust and feel at ease with. You will have the time and space to talk (without awkward silences!) and where desired, I can share with you knowledge/theory acquired from 10 years clinical experience, to help us collaboratively explore, enlighten and enhance your lived experience.

Hi, my name is Ben and I'm the lead Clinical Psychologist for Project Trauma. I set up Project Trauma to provide the kind of personalised, compassionate psychological support that people need following events in their life which they have struggled to cope with. Psychological distress can affect anyone and everyone will have a different reaction to traumatic events in their life. We all have different tolerance and ways of coping, but at some stage in our life we will all need help from somewhere. Recently I have been working extensively with individuals suffering very understandable health anxiety related to the Covid-19 Pandemic.

Have you ever been judged by just being who and what you are? Have you been disapproved of your sexuality, identity, gender identity, your life choices, and what and who you want to be? It is difficult to live our lives every day being questioned by our families, friends, or others. Maybe at times, even we started to ask ourselves, Am I “normal”? Am I doing the wrong thing? Should I just try to do what they want me to do, but can I? Am I passable enough or will I ever be? It feels natural to me, but why are they judging me for it? Most important of all, do I deserve to be happy by being myself and how could I ever achieve that?

Counselling/ Psychotherapy: Effective counselling reduces confusion, allowing you to make effective decisions leading to positive changes in your attitude, behaviours & overall well-being. The ultimate aim of counselling is to enable you to make your own choices, reach your own decisions & go forward with a greater sense of clarity & self-management. Hypnotherapy & mindfulness can be introduced as a type of complementary therapy in which hypnosis is used to create a state of focused attention and increased suggestibility during which positive suggestions are made to rid you of emotional blockage. Mindfulness keeps us focused

Do you long to experience some peace, freedom and self trust around food? I believe this should be a birthright for everyone. If you are feeling out of control around food and concerned about the size or shape of your body, I get it because I've been there. I now use my professional and lived experience to help others find their way out of the prison of binge eating. I'm sure you have tried many times to gain control of your eating and maybe you're at a point where you're thinking there must be more going on than simply not being able to stick to a diet. Is therapy the answer?

I tailor therapy bespoke to your difficulties, integrating CBT, Cognitive Analytical Therapy, Psychodynamic Approach, Attachment-Based Therapy, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.
I'm glad you've taken the first step by coming here to improve your life. I specialise working with people who have experienced traumatic relationships, traumatic attachments, issues of abuse and neglect in a relationship - no matter how big or small this may feel. It may be you were in a relationship where you felt like you were not good enough, other people were gas-lighting you, or you were invalidated or misunderstood. I help people feel confident, develop boundaries, be more assertive, improve their self-esteem after feeling panicked, anxious, or walking on eggshells.

There is strong research evidence for ACT & CBT for depression & anxiety difficulties.
Is anxiety or excessive worry getting in the way for your? Are you stuck in a pattern of negative thinking? Or are you finding it hard to live with a traumatic event? Difficult thoughts and emotions can be overwhelming. This suggests you would benefit from structured therapy to learn some new ways of coping.
