About me and my therapy practice

Living a life of either being immersed in or feeling a need to escape suffering eventually catches up with us. Believe me, I'd been doing this for the best part of the last thirty years and it's been only relativity recently that I'm free from the grip of these mental health issues, feeling so much better and can now appreciate from afar the amount of darkness that had slowly enveloped me over time now that I've emerged into the light. We can become way too adept at merely surviving life via a combination of almost endless inner monologues and overusing escapist indulgences, especially when certain problematic feelings are spiked.

Whilst this behaviour may feel natural as these coping mechanisms slowly become evermore habitual, these habits will incrementally catch up with and consume us, as our relationship with our own fears, whether or not they are apparent under any given or researched diagnosis, will further deteriorate. This means we become fearful, even in our own company.

If we are fearful in our own company, then we are fearful of life. Therefore anxiety and depression issues would be inevitable. Regardless of the scale of the problem, if anything I've put here speaks to you then I offer a safe space for us both to find understanding of what's causing this, achieve acceptance and change habits towards a brighter future.

Practice description

I conduct both telephone and online therapy at £35 per session.

I can take cash, card and bank transfer payments.

Sessions run for one hour. 

This is normally a weekly process, especially early on into therapy, but may then switch to fortnightly or monthly depending on results before therapy concludes.

If you have any questions at all around any of this then please feel free to contact me on either 07474 736006 or benwardentherapy@gmail.com

My first session

The first session will be a getting to know each other.

We will try to establish some goals or an agenda for therapy.

At your own pace, feel free to talk about whatever is on your mind. We will try to establish either what problems need to be solved, or which of your thoughts and/or feelings you would like to understand more about.

Towards the end of the session, I may give you a small task to do during the week. We will discuss what suits you, but it may be to note some thoughts down or to do a small activity.

At the end of the session, if you're happy to continue the process, then we can arrange a next session. Otherwise, you're free to go home and think about it first. Either way, feel free to contact me anytime.
