Therapy & Counselling

Therapy for life’s twists and turns

Angus Ford-Robertson

 

Using his skills as a qualified clinical hypnotherapist (registered with the BSCH) and his experience as a yoga and mindfulness teacher, he specializes in working with people who are in experiencing stress, life change and emotional upheaval in their lives.

 

Therapy and Counselling can be invaluable for people who seek help with:

  • Relationship issues
  • Career changes
  • Emotional trauma
  • Anxiety problems
  • Work stress
  • Depression

 

Angus calls his work ‘Reflective Therapy’ and is particularly recommended for individuals who understand the importance of taking an active role in the therapeutic healing process. Reading material, exercises and courses may be suggested and the individual is  guided to further their own self-development.

 

Reflective Therapy is a synthesis of the most effective psychotherapeutic approaches of the West (such as CBT, hypnotherapy, bioenergetics), with the mindful, meditative and philosophical wisdom of the East.

 

Hypnotherapy, which is sometimes used in Reflective Therapy, can be very effective for dealing with immediate issues and symptoms such as anxiety and depression, weight problems, compulsive behaviours, phobias, headaches, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), insomnia and skin complaints.

 

While hypnosis is sometimes used during appointments, it should be understood that it forms only a small part of the therapy offered. Other techniques will be utilised in order to achieve given objectives. These may include; reframing of the problem or situation, techniques for dropping old thinking patterns, learning how to question the validity of thoughts, discovering a spiritual perspective on an issue, making lifestyle changes and learning practical stress-reducing techniques.

 

Initially, it is suggested that a single appointment is booked so that the presenting issues can be assessed. Thereafter, if the client wishes to engage in the therapeutic process, it is normal to commit to a regular weekly appointment for 6-8 sessions. This allows enough time to initiate positive change and provides a good framework for the therapeutic process.

 

Angus provides courses for the NHS, as a specialist in Mindfulness – working with patients who experience stress, anxiety and depression.
