Why Specialist Experience Makes a Difference
Experience in your consultant makes a real difference to your outcome. Stress and its many manifestations are my specialist area. I don’t claim to offer all things to all people. Just the depth of experience and training within this key area. My key skill is in helping people resolve these issues.
Epidemic of Stress & Burnout
In the UK we have an epidemic of stress and burnout. Whether this is from work or home pressures, stress presents itself in many guises ranging from (but not limited to):
- Low mood
- High anxiety & constant worry
- Low confidence
- Strained relationships
- Poor concentration & procrastination
- Mental health problems such as OCD, depression & PTSD following significant trauma.
Managing stress is one of the most important keys to thriving. Whether it is an everyday issue or a clinical problem, CBT can help us resolve the issues and make us more resilient to the ups and downs of work and personal life.
I have found that increasing numbers of already successful people want access to psychological consultation for anxiety and stress.
All too often we get ourselves stuck in unworkable or self-defeating responses to important life situations.
Resolving issues - Living Life
There are still people who think that changing and seeking help to change is admitting weakness or a sign of defeat. Actually – the complete opposite is true – why would you not want to increase skill and abilities to survive and thrive in difficult times, both personally and professionally? Seeking to change and seeking the best help to do this is a sign of mental strength and resilience. When there is a better way forward why not take it.
Just as our top sports men and women use coaching to give their best performance; people in professional walks of life use CBT to manage their emotions in an optimum way and to achieve more of what matters to them.
Greater Clarity of Thought & Action
My psychological knowledge and insight is your advantage when it comes to providing greater clarity of thought and action. We must understand and balance all sides of the problem, and to do that well, a greater depth of understanding is necessary. Then we can decide the action to bring about the optimum change in the time frame that matters to you. My skill is in asking the right questions, listening and having the mindset and specialist psychological knowledge relevant to your situation to help you come to clear resolution of the difficulties.
