Therapy will involve looking at your defence mechanisms, coping mechanisms, unhelpful patterns of behaviour and past traumas that may have occurred in your life.

Counselling - Counselling is a talking therapy that involves a trained therapist listening to you and helping you find ways to deal with emotional issues. Sometimes the term "counselling" is used to refer to talking therapies in general, but counselling is also a type of therapy in its own right.
What can counselling help with?

Counselling can help you cope with:

A mental health condition, such as depression, anxiety or an eating disorder
An upsetting physical health condition, such as infertility
A difficult life event, such as a bereavement, a relationship breakdown or work-related stress
Difficult  emotions – for example, low self-esteem or anger
Other issues, such as sexual identity. 

Psychotherapy / Psychodynamic Psychology ychotherapy - Psychodynamic psychotherapy is more I depth than Counselling , it  looks at how childhood experiences and thoughts you're not aware of (your unconscious mind) could be affecting your thinking, feelings, relationships and behaviour today. This is more in depth and could be longer therapy sessions than counselling. The work involves working in the past , present and future. .

Life Coaching and NLP.- NLP meaning “Neuro” meaning nerve, refers to the way we gather information from the outside world, using our five senses. “Linguistic” is the study of language, referring to the way we make sense of said information by organising it into the structure of language. Finally, “programming” is our way of controlling something. This refers to how we interpret the world and how we control our daily actions, choices and behaviours.

NLP is considered to be one of the most useful and accessible tools to come from modern psychology and can assist with:
stress management

improving feelings of empathy
improving communication skills
resolving destructive relationship patterns

Hypnosis - I think you either love it or hate it ? Hypnotherapy uses hypnosis to try to treat conditions or change habits.There are different types of hypnotherapy and different ways of hypnotising someone. First, you'll usually have a talk with your therapist to discuss what you hope to achieve and agree what methods your therapist will use.After this, the hypnotherapist may:

Lead you into a deeply relaxed state – most people feel refreshed and relaxed
use your agreed methods to help you towards your goals – for example, suggesting that you do not want to carry out a certain habit
gradually bring you out of the trance-like state. Most people feel refreshed and relaxed
You're fully in control when under hypnosis and do not have to take on the therapist's suggestions if you do not want to.

If necessary, you can bring yourself out of the hypnotic state.

Hypnosis does not work if you do not want to be hypnotised!

Relationship Therapy -  relationship therapy can help people who have problems that they wish to solve in their relationship's. Relationship therapy, or couples counselling, provides space for couples to discuss their issues and find solutions to problems within their relationship.
Relationships are an essential part of our lives. Close relationships bring many rewards but they are also challenging. All relationships face challenges. How we deal with these challenges is important and plays a significant role in how we experience close personal relationships and in how we resolve conflicts when they arise.

Contact us at the WellBee’ing Lodge to discuss your therapy. At  times therapy may become challenging, but this is when your ‘stuff’ and emotions may come to the present. We will work through these tough emotions together. 
When we are at our most vulnerable, this is when we both know this is the area that may need to be worked through.
