Announcement icon I now offer 1-1 face to face, in my London clinic and in Stroud. In London, groups of 4 for 6 weeks, Session fees reflect location costs.
You might be feeling overwhelmed by all the people in your life and the things you have to do to make life feel less chaotic, less out of your control. You may have found ways of coping with this emotional turmoil which are maybe bad for you and bring quick relief for now, but the same old problems and feelings build up again in time. You would like some relief from life's pressures, some space and time to sort out who you are, why you feel this way and why things happen for you the way they do. With calmer, clearer vision of how you manage life's pressures, your life could be something you choose for yourself and enjoy more fully.
I can look with you at who you are right now, to understand how you might have arrived at this point, and to help you work out how to identify your thoughts, feelings and behaviours to move forward. I work creatively to find what will help you, which can include role play, writing, outdoor therapy, visualisation and breathing techniques for trauma relief.
I prefer to think of psychological distress or mental health issues more as 'what has happened to you' rather than 'what is wrong with you'. By listening attentively, sensing how it feels to be you, asking gentle questions, we can together understand your situation and find ways to feel more comfortable in your own, unique self.

Chris Bailey Therapy's Groups

psychotherapy with movement

Using a combination of psychotherapy and neuro-trauma informed movement work, you will discover what your body can tell you about how and why your emotions overwhelm you at times. In this way you will learn ways to release yourself from triggers: to support yourself; to break a cycle of behaviours which may have helped you cope with how you are feeling, but have not led you out of a repeating cycle. Using movement which may sometimes be playful, or quietly focussed, we will set safe boundaries, within the therapeutic process and into your wider working and personal relationships.
