ENDERBY PSYCHOTHERAPY & COUNSELLING ASSOCIATES
Welcome to the website of Enderby Psychotherapy and Counselling Associates. The practice consists of two therapists, Ray Little and Jane Read, both practitioners each have over thirty five years experience and are registered members of the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). This means that they meet the exacting standards and training requirements for psychotherapists, which are the conditions of becoming a member of the UKCP.
Individual Psychotherapy and Counselling
Psychotherapy and counselling involve a confidential talking and collaborative processes between the client and therapist. The overall aim is for the individual or couple to have an opportunity to explore their experience, their feelings, thoughts and behaviours with the therapist to enable them to gain understanding and insight, and manage their lives more effectively and satisfactorily.
People considering seeking therapy often feel unhappy, or stuck in situations and behavioural patterns that they do not fully understand. Psychotherapy and Counselling can help those people who are suffering from emotional distress and personal difficulties, or mental health issues, who wish to accomplish understanding, insight and change in their lives. If you attend Enderby Associates for psychotherapy or counselling you will have the opportunity to talk further about what it is that is troubling you. The therapist will listen, without making judgements and will endeavour to help you make sense of your experience, thoughts and emotions. The therapist will help you recognise patterns, discover meanings and where appropriate explore options. We work with individuals and couples of differing genders, sexualities, cultures and ethnicities. We endeavour to make our services accessable to all. However, we do not have wheelchair access.
At Enderby Associates the therapists work with a variety of issues and problems that people experience and these may include;
- depression, sadness and emptiness,
- anxiety and difficulties with coping,
- feelings of fear and panic,
- lack of confidence and low self esteem,
