A clean start

The retreat has undergone some minor changes to help provide an environment in which you can feel confident and protected. Face to face sessions are available for clients where online or phone sessions aren't an option or where it's deemed necessary for our ongoing work together.

Video/phone counselling

Positive Change also offer counselling and coaching over the phone or video chat. This is ideal when you're less able to travel or for any reason cannot attend in person. I can help you through the simple process of using our preferred online video software "Zoom" so you'll have no problem getting started. Just get in touch so I can help you as soon as possible.

A Peaceful Retreat

The Retreat is a purpose built property, designed and constructed especially to create a calm place for you to come and engage. Here, you can put aside the pressures of daily life and feel the peace of our quiet surroundings without distractions of the outside world.

This image popped up on my facebook feed courtesy of #actionforhappiness and I wanted to share it with you. Today is #SuicidePreventionDay and many of us might be asking ourselves, "how will I know if I have a friend, colleague or loved one who needs help, and if I can spot the signs, what can I do?". Firstly I'd recommend taking a look at buff.ly/32qz8Q6 which provides some excellent advice on what to look for, and what you can do if you spot any of the signs. And it's worth bearing in mind that sometimes the people in the greatest distress are the ones who do the best job of hiding it - that's where today's picture comes in. Perhaps the most important thing that we can do is to treat everyone with kindness regardless, because we never know who we might be standing next to and what they might be experiencing in that moment. Whether we know what they are going through or not, treating someone with compassion and kindness might be enough to help them find their way through that moment, or to reach out to someone and ask for help. The sad fact is that we won't prevent every suicide ... but even if our actions change just one persons' perspective for even a moment, that could be all it takes to make the difference! ...

Say hello to Wilbur the Whippet. He's 8 weeks old and this is his first day on the job as my trainee...as you can see he's taking his therapy responsibilities very seriously indeed 😊🥱 I'm being reminded that our pets have the same emotional needs that we do. They need to feel safe, to have some choices, to give and receive attention, to be part of a community / pack where they feel accepted and belong, to be accepted for who they are, to have quiet time and space when things all get a bit too much, to know that they are achieving and are important, (and Wilbur knows he's a good boy already!) and even dogs need a purpose .... right now Wilburs is to be a delightful distraction from all the other things I could be doing! And he will be helping me, my family and maybe one day some of my clients to get our emotional needs met too in lots of different ways. Having a pet can be a really valuable way of meeting needs and improving emotional and physical health... do you have pets and how are they important to you? #whippetsofinstagram #positivechangeforever ...

Have you ever found that you have something on your mind that you just don’t seem to be able to work through on your own, but you don’t feel that you need to sign up for therapy? Maybe that’s because we often equate going for counselling or therapy as something you only do when you feel bad, and that you need to go for several sessions for it to work? What if I told you that this isn’t true? What if I told you that it’s ok to have a single session with someone who is trained to have these kinds of conversations, with the sole purpose of addressing that one thing on your mind – the opportunity to talk something over with someone who can give you an unbiased and fresh-eyes perspective?
Welcome to Single Session Therapy. This approach is for you if you have a specific issue that we can look at in focused way and that you would like to be able to resolve as quickly as possible. Professor Windy Dryden, a leading practitioner of SST in the UK describes it as “an intentional brief encounter between therapist and client”, with the space after the session to reflect and digest on what has been explored, to act on what has been discussed and also to wait and see what difference it’s made before deciding whether you need to do any more. Remember, the modal (most frequently occurring) number of sessions anyone will have with a therapist is ONE … and sometimes, that’s all that’s needed! Of course, it’s ok if after that encounter, you decide that there is more you want to explore and you might decide on another single session, or you might decide that there’s a bit more there than one session will cover – either is fine!
If this is you, and you’d like to give Single Session Therapy a try, then I can offer 60 or 90 minute sessions depending on your needs. Why wait? The solution may be a single conversation away!
