How do I choose a therapist?

The huge number of 'models' of therapy available can be very confusing and misleading for the lay person, and even for those in the profession! What is probably more important to a successful therapeutic outcome is the relationship between therapist and client, a factor often influenced by the particular "chemistry" between the individuals concerned. Additionally, a reputable therapist will have undergone extensive training (which should be at least 3 years in duration and include lengthy personal therapy); be registered or accredited with one of the main UK governing bodies (see below), and will have acquired clinical and life experience. For the client, it is important to have a motivation for change, a willingness to trust the process and to be open to self-exploration. Use the first session to work out if you can be open and honest with this particular therapist, and whether you feel understood and supported.

It’s always good to get a personal recommendation to a therapist if you can.  All the therapists at Wendy Bramham Therapy are trained and experienced; are registered with a UK professional governing body;  carry full insurance; are committed to ongoing professional development and undertake an application procedure before joining us.

Getting Help from Counselling and Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy/Counselling is the practice of understanding and resolving emotional problems, relationship difficulties and life challenges through talking in a confidential and impartial setting. The therapist helps to shed new light on these experiences so that you can gain a better understanding of yourself and of the situation, and to arrive at your own solutions for living in a more satisfying way.

Counselling or Psychotherapy?

This is a subject of great debate. Some would say there is little or no difference. Others would say that counselling is usually short-term, and focused on a specific problem; whereas psychotherapy is often longer-term, addressing the underlying causes of a person's difficulties.
