Each one of us has a time in our lifes that we feel hurt or confused. But as a result sometimes people feel they really cannot cope, or that an event or experience has confused and upset them so much that it impacts the rest of their life. Finding a safe place to talk is a good first step to feeling better and here at Charter we will listen to you and support you to find your own answers and learn new behaviours, so you can feel comfortable in your skin and take more control of your life.
It can feel scary contacting a therapist to ask for help, and we will do all we can to make this as easy as possible for you. We are told again and again by our clients that coming to Charter was the best thing they have ever done for themselves, and we can see it in the wonderful changes that happen here all the time. Going on a journey of self discovery can be one of the most rewarding decisions you will ever make, and we are here to walk with you every step of the way.
Whatever is worrying you, we will do our best to help. People often seek therapy after a life changing event, a divorce or difficulty in relationships or after an experience of loss. Just as often people come to us because of an overwhelming sense of anxiety or because they feel broken by depression, lost or taut with stress. Managing how you feel can be a big step in managing to cope and we are here to help.
At Charter we have a very experienced multi-disciplinary team, and we place great importance on choosing the right therapist for you. Many of the team have personal experience of addiction themselves or in their family, so there is a great deal of empathy here for recovery from self-defeating patterns of behaviour. If, however, for any reason you have any concerns about our choice of therapist for you, just contact the office and we will be happy to discuss these with you.
If helpful we can also refer to a network of consultants and specialists, who are well-known to us, and who can support the success of your treatment.
We apply many therapeutic approaches that combine to give you the personalised treatment to suit your needs. These encompass behavioural therapy (eg CBT/REBT), focusing on thoughts and behaviour, psychoanalytic and pyschodynamic therapy that explores relationship patterns and less conscious material evolving from childhood experience with a strong emphasis on what is happening here and now.
This is up to you, though an assessment with a member of the team at CHARTER can really help you make that decision. Understanding what is causing you difficulty or getting in the way of your fulfillment in life is an important step towards dealing with it. It is sometimes surprising how much difference it can make to talk to a trained therapist on a weekly basis. It doesn’t always have to be about distress either, sometimes the work is about developing better ways of coping and expressing yourself so that you can have the life you want.
On the TEAM page you will see every practitioner has letters after their name indicating their individual training and qualifications. Further as a company we are members of BACP, one of the UK’s leading accrediting bodies. You may also want to browse our library of testimonials from people just like you, who have come through the CHARTER process and are now leading happy, successful and fruitful lives.
We are always happy to answer any questions you may have so just give us a call to see if we can help. Or make an appointment with the assessment team so you have a better understanding of your options and how we can help you. Just pick up the phone or fill in our Enquiry Form and we can work together from there.
We also have a library of useful documents for you to download and read in our PDF Library.PDF LIBRARY
