Trauma therapy is a type of therapy that helps people who have experienced a very difficult event, like abuse, accidents, disasters, or violence. The goal of trauma therapy is to help people feel better emotionally, mentally, and physically after experiencing trauma. Trauma can cause problems like anxiety, depression, PTSD, flashbacks, nightmares, avoiding things, and always feeling very alert. Trauma therapy can help people feel better and manage these problems.
Group therapy is a type of counseling that involves a small group of people sharing similar experiences and working together to achieve common goals. The group setting provides a supportive environment where members can share their thoughts and feelings openly, without judgment. Group therapy can effectively treat many mental health conditions, such as depression, anxiety, and substance abuse.
Family therapy is a type of therapy that focuses on improving communication and relationships within a family. It can be helpful for families who are experiencing conflict, communication problems, or other challenges. Family therapy can be conducted with all members of the family present or occasionally with just a few members.
How it Works?
Schedule an appointment
If you would like to speak to one of our Therapists and you are looking for Counselling in Burnley and surrounding areas to help you decide if therapy is for you, then we are happy to provide a 30–minute consultation to you for free.
Your first session
The first session is an opportunity to meet your therapist and to decide if you feel comfortable continuing with them. It is also an opportunity for your therapist to get to know you and understand your reasons for coming to therapy.
My name is Brent Kelly, and I am a practising psychotherapist in the North West of England. I offer Counselling in Burnley and surrounding areas mainly. I have been in private practice for two years. I am a qualified counsellor studying for my Masters in Psychotherapy in Transactional Analysis. I am registered with the UK Council for Psychotherapists (UKCP). I have a private practice where I see individuals, couples, and families. I also work as a consultant for businesses and organisations. I am particularly interested in helping people with PTSD & trauma, anxiety, depression, and relationship issues.
How can Psychotherapy help you?
Psychotherapy can help people learn how to cope better with stress and manage their emotions. I can help people learn how to communicate better with others and build healthier relationships. I also help people learn how to understand themselves better and make positive changes in their lives.
Counselling/psychotherapy is a confidential, collaborative, therapeutic relationship between a client and a counsellor/psychotherapist. The aim of counselling/psychotherapy is to support the client in achieving a more fulfilling and satisfying life.
The main aim of counselling/psychotherapy is to enable you to understand and explore your feelings and emotions in a confidential and safe environment. It can help you to deal with specific problems and can also provide you with the opportunity to explore issues in your life that may be causing you concern. It can help you to develop new perspectives and new ways of dealing with difficulties.
1. The counsellor/psychotherapist will ask about your background and why you came for counselling/psychotherapy.
2. The counsellor/psychotherapist will explain how he/she works.
3. The counsellor/psychotherapist will ask what is troubling you.
4. The counsellor/psychotherapist will help you explore your thoughts and feelings.
5. The counsellor/psychotherapist will help you to understand yourself and your situation better.
6. The counsellor/psychotherapist will give you some ideas about how to make changes in your life.
7. The counsellor/psychotherapist will support you in making these changes.
This will depend on the nature of your problem, and the rate at which you are able to work.
Most people experienced some benefit from around six sessions, but the number of sessions you will need will be discussed with you at the first session.
Do I need to be referred by a doctor to see a counsellor/psychotherapist? No. You can contact a counsellor or psychotherapist directly and arrange an appointment. Some insurance companies may require a referral from a GP, but most do not.
Counselling is typically shorter in duration than psychotherapy, and it focuses on a specific problem or set of problems. The aim of counselling is to help the individual resolve those issues and move on. Psychotherapy, on the other hand, is usually longer term and looks at the individual‘s overall mental health and well–being. It aims to help the individual understand and change any underlying patterns of thought or behaviour that may be contributing to their difficulties.
Your counsellor/psychotherapist should discuss confidentiality with you at the beginning of your first session. They should explain what information they will need to share with others and what information will remain confidential. Confidentiality is an important part of the counselling/psychotherapy process and you should feel confident that your counsellor/psychotherapist will respect your privacy. If you have any concerns about confidentiality, you should discuss these with your counsellor/psychotherapist.
If you are not happy with your counsellor/psychotherapist, you should try to talk to them about your concerns. If you are still not happy, you can ask to see someone else.
