About me

Are you bogged down by the symptoms of anxiety? Are you sick of leading a life largely just trying to escape its effects? Plagued by worrisome or frightening thoughts? If any of these ring true to you then I believe I can help.

As well as being a qualified level 6 cognitive behavioural therapist, with 3 years of client experience, having enjoyed many years of study, I have also myself been a long term sufferer of generalised anxiety disorder.

However, having been raised by one parent with mental health issues and having an infrequent relationship with another parent who is by and large a contented person I became as much fascinated by how to change the relationship with our own anxieties in order to live the good life as with the placating of the symptoms of anxiety.

Which is what I do and offer as a therapist. On the one hand, we will get to know your own anxiety in the present in order to make small incremental changes to get you feeling better in the present, and on the other, we will try to understand the roots of your anxiety from the past in order to achieve both an understanding and an acceptance of it, which will help to change your relationship with it in order to gear you towards a clearer, contented and more exciting future, as you will develop a robustness from its effects.

If this sounds good to you and you would like to arrange either a phone or online session, or if you would like to know more, then please feel free to contact me on either 07474 736006 or benwardentherapy@gmail.com

I have worked with clients across the age range and, whilst I specialise in anxiety, I have also helped clients with a very wide range of issues, so regardless of whatever problem you are having it is worth contacting to see if what I have to offer can help you :)

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
