Anthony Whitfield, Person Centred Therapist (BA Hons)
Hello, I have extensive experience in psychological intervention, delivered in a way that is individual to you, caring empathic and genuine. It could be the best investment you make in your self ever to become familiar and happy with who you are. Leading to a happier and more fulfilled way of being.
What I offer.
If ever there is a time in your life you feel that the wind has gone from your sails and you are stuck in the doldrums, you suffer with anxiety, or you realise past traumatic events are keeping you in suffering and pain, perhaps intimate relationships have become a type of love-hate battle, there is help at hand.
You may not be aware of what is even bothering you, but just know something is wrong.
I am a person centred therapist, offering time limited or open ended therapy and counselling. Sometimes we need help in understanding how we feel about certain things that are happening or have happened to us in our lives.
The pace of life in the modern world can be so fast there is no time to take a moment to see what is really happening within. This can lead to a feeling of hopelessness or anxiety. I offer a safe caring space to explore how you feel about your life or relationships or past experiences that have a recurring negative impact on the reality of what is happening for you right now.
How you start.
When you contact me we can talk about what is bothering you (if email enquiry please give a brief description of your concerns I will then email back and offer a phone contact time). Then I will offer an initial 60 minute consultation session (£20.00) at a time suitable for us both. The first session will be listening to you, gaining an understanding of yourself in order to proceed with therapy/counselling.
For clarity, we will design a personal therapy or counselling plan (this can always change!) so you will get the most from the future sessions. We will work at your pace and what you want to talk about. Some people who start counselling move onto deeper levels of exploration of their self once in a therapeutic environment, which then becomes therapy- exploring many facets of personality, which translates to better quality relationships and happier life.
Person Centred approach.
You have the power within to understand anything and everything about yourself, I am available to be alongside your process so you will not be alone, this is what therapy is.
How many times did we all need that caring input from another to be truly understood and heard? I could count those times on one hand. I offer that to you so you can become the person you want to be. Through the power of yourself, you can live a joyful life.
‘You never fail until you stop trying’ was a famous saying by Albert Einstein.
We can explore a range of psychological and emotional issues such as:-
- Abuse related trauma
- Emotional breakdown recovery
- Inner peace disturbance
- Physical injury leading to Trauma related dysfunction
- Relationship Tensions/Breakdowns
- Repeating negative patterns of life situations
- Sibling rivalry/leading to developmental trauma release
- Self worth/Self esteem
