About me and my therapy practice
My name is Tony Humphreys. I am a Psychotherapist trained in both CBT (Cognitive and Behavioural Therapy) and Person Centred Counselling. I specialise in Depression and Anxiety in its various forms (i.e. Phobias, OCD, Social Anxiety etc...). I appreciate that many people become a little anxious at the prospect of an intense atmosphere in a counselling room. Thats not how I work though. My first aim is to help you relax. To see that yes, it is a 'safe and confidential environment for you to talk about anything that you want'. But there's no need for it to be a heavy and intense atmosphere either.
I can offer face to face appointments at my treatment room in Wells, Somerset, Skype or telephone appointments.
Cognitive Behaviour Therapy is a way of helping yourself manage your mental and emotional health. It has a strong evidence base in being successful with many difficulties through providing tools and techniques you can use to manage your situation more effectively.
Although not exhaustive the following are examples of common mental health issues that I have been treating for over 12 years:
Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD)
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
Counselling can be useful for anyone who wants to explore the way they're thinking or feeling further, as well as for anyone experiencing a problem or issue they are keen to resolve.
People may choose to speak to a counsellor because they feel they cannot speak to their other half/friends/family about such personal issues, or they may simply wish to speak to a professional with an objective viewpoint.
Common subjects that can be addressed within counselling include the following:
