It’s perfectly normal to go through periods of difficulty in life. At the Affinity Centre we can offer you counselling and psychotherapy for a range of issues. These include:
Stress and Burnout
With the pace of life increasing and less time to relax, stress can be a major issue in many people’s lives. Small amounts of stress for small amounts of time can help us be more productive and effective in what we do. The problems come when stress is experienced over longer periods of time. Lengthy exposure to stress can cause health problems, lack of sleep and eventually result in burnout. Learn how to deal with stress by working with a counsellor or psychotherapist and bring back the balance in your life.
Depression, or low mood brings real unhappiness to many individuals at times in their lives. Depression can be caused by a number of different factors, from the death of a loved one, becoming a new mum, the break up of a relationship or many other reasons. Working with a counsellor or psychotherapist can help you to understand the origins of your depression and can give practical techniques to deal with your feelings (or lack of them) on a day to day basis. Therapy can bring back hope, so get in touch today.
Like stress, anxiety in small doses may help you perform better and be more effective. Longer term anxiety is shown to have an impact on health and can cause insomnia. Therapy and counselling can help anxious individuals to manage their anxiety better and teach them to enjoy the here and now rather than living in the past or the future.
it’s normal for relationships to go through difficult times now and again but many couples do not deal with problems or seek help quick enough. This results in the relationship getting to a place where so much damage has been done that it is difficult to put the relationship back together again. If you are having experiencing conflict in your relationship or you are not connecting with your partner at all then take action now and contact the centre. Your therapist will work with you both to bring the romance back into your relationship and make sure both of you feel heard and understood. For more couples counselling information click here.
OCD and obsessions
OCD can have a major impact on the lives of both the sufferer and their family and friends. There are many different ways in which OCD and obsessions can manifest but it seems universally agreed in therapy circles that CBT is one of the most effective methods of treatment. There are several CBT therapists based at the Affinity Centre, contact us now to make an appointment.
Issues around sexuality
It may be that you are unsure of your sexuality or you feel sure but need help and support coming to terms with your sexual identity and how it fits with other aspects of your life. The Affinity Centre offers help and support for gender and sexual minority clients and has professionals trained in this area by Pink Therapy. Get in touch and let’s talk it though and give you the support you deserve.
It may seem odd to see jealousy in this list but jealousy can do a tremendous amount of damage to people’s lives and cause relationship breakdown and huge amounts of anxiety and stress. The good news is that there are ways to tackle and eradicate the issue by working with a well trained therapist or counsellor. So don’t let jealousy damage your life, contact the centre now and let’s work it out.
Anger can have a big impact on people’s lives and be very destructive. Deal with it. Contact the centre and book on an Anger Management Course now.
This is by no means a comprehensive list. We also have a nutritionist working at the centre to help you with your diet and wellbeing and hypnotherapists that can help you with breaking bad habits such as smoking or phobias.
