Mindfulness to help settle your mind, including OCD and childhood difficulties.
Great, you have already taken the first steps for you. I am not the expert on you, you are. I am here to support and explore with you what you maybe finding difficult or just not feeling Ok. This may be in your relationships, in your physical body or you are finding both these things are overwhelming sometimes. Together we can wonder, ponder and educate ourselves and understand, why? Then we can make a strategy and build on your already available resilience (you are here remember), and improve this together. This maybe just a few sessions, sometimes just one or a little longer if you need this.

Are you feeling anxious, overwhelmed or worried ? Perhaps your mood has been low for a while and you can’t seem to shift that feeling. Sometimes life events such as losing a loved one, relationship break-ups, family problems or work issues can leave us feeling helpless. Perhaps you are considering help to untangle your thoughts. Maybe you think a lot about things that have happened in the past that still affect you. Sometimes there may be a sense that life is lacking in meaning and direction. We can all lose sight of who we really are and what we want from life.

Too many people still think they need to "suffer in silence". There's a strongly-held belief, especially among men, that it's not OK to talk about emotions, about problems in relationships, or about those moments when we feel overwhelmed. I've worked with many clients who come to counselling as a last resort, not really believing it can help them. But thousands of people out there have found that talking does make a difference. If you've been wondering whether it could make a difference for you, contact me for an introductory appointment, to see whether counselling is right for you.

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.

I know these are really difficult times for everybody, there is very clear and understandable fear about what is happening around us & many are suffering directly or indirectly from exposure to Covid-19. Rightfully many of us have isolated ourselves yet this can also create problems triggering or increasing depression and anxiety. Online face-to-face Psychotherapy and Counselling is an effective way of helping to manage and resolve many of the problems created by this threat to our health and well-being as well as presenting the opportunity to help with older “stuff” that may have been triggered by the present crisis.

Obsessive-Compulsive (OCD) Counsellors
Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is an anxiety disorder in which people have unwanted and repeated thoughts, feelings, ideas, sensations (obsessions), or behaviours that make them feel driven to do something (compulsions). It affects children, kids, teens and adults. Often the person carries out the behaviours to get rid of the obsessive thoughts, but this only provides temporary relief. Not performing the obsessive rituals can cause great anxiety. A person's level of OCD can be anywhere from mild to severe, but if severe and left untreated, it can destroy a person's capacity to function at work, at school or even to lead a comfortable existence in the home.

If you're looking for help with OCD counselling in Whitstable or for a Whitstable OCD counsellor, these professionals provide OCD treatment and obsessive compulsive disorder treatment. They include OCD counsellors, OCD psychologists, OCD psychotherapists and OCD counsellors in Whitstable. They can help with Whitstable OCD counselling, OCD symptoms, OCD children, obsessive compulsive disorder, and OCPD.

Hair-pulling (trichotillomania) and skin picking (dematillomania), collectively referred to as Body Focused Repetitive behaviours, are classified as OCD-related disorders. Treatment for trichotillomiania in Whitstable or TTM or hair pulling in Whitstable or skin picking can be found from these counsellors.
