Online Counselling

Psychotherapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy online

Due to coronavirus guidelines, all talking therapies are now available online using Skype or any other secure online video portal.

At The MindBody Clinic, all of our therapists are making big changes to ensure that we are here to support you during this time of uncertainty. We are now offering 30 minute online one-to-one “Coronavirus Anxiety” counselling from The Mind Body Clinic in Tonbridge on Wednesday mornings, phone us to book your appointment.

Recent events have been unprecedented, and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy can be particularly useful when it comes to supporting positive behavioural habits, especially if you find yourself struggling in isolation. Other talking therapies can help you through periods of loneliness, stress, or depression.

Psychotherapy and Counselling

Counselling is a generic term for talking therapies of which there are many forms, usually distinguished by different qualifications and the approach to treating the client. At the Mind Body Clinic, we employ psychotherapists, clinical psychologists, CBT specialists and art therapists. Therapy sessions will involve the client and the therapist engaging in a secure relationship, working together to create a positive change in the client’s behaviour. Clinical psychology also employs talking therapy in addition to other advanced empirical-based techniques, which can be particularly useful for more complex conditions. Our clinical psychologists are qualified up to PhD level. Several of our therapists practice and employ cognitive behavioural therapy, or CBT, for clients specifically looking for this form of treatment.

What to expect

As a client, you will meet regularly with an experienced, qualified psychotherapist or clinical psychologist for sessions lasting 50 minutes. The content of your discussions is completely confidential and safe, and there are no wait times involved.

The professional will provide a secure and welcoming environment for you to help process and work on resolving difficulties that are unique to your circumstances. This relationship is one without judgement, but with complete respect and total acceptance.

Outcome

You will be able to trust and rely on your therapist as an empathic, understanding companion who will “walk beside you” while you work towards achieving your goals. Whether the challenging experiences you are going through are from the past or present, your therapist will work with you, with an integrative approach that is unique to you and your circumstances. The working alliance that results through your relationship with your therapist, will be one that is empowering and supportive, striving to facilitate the change that will improve your overall health and wellbeing.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, or CBT, is a talking therapy that works by altering the way that you think and behave. CBT is most commonly used for anxiety, phobia and depression, but it can be directed towards any mental health issues. Different from other forms of therapy, CBT looks at current problems rather than past issues, to work towards changing negative thoughts and feelings that can trap you in an endless cycle. Used by the NHS across the U.K., CBT is effective for several different mental health concerns.

Humanistic Therapy

Humanistic Therapy is a person-centred therapy that focuses predominately on an individual’s unique, personal potential to explore creativity, growth, love and psychological understanding. Humanistic counsellors aim to help clients explore their thoughts and feelings to work out personal solutions to their problems.

Art Therapy

Art Therapy is a form of Psychotherapy that uses creative expression as a mode of communication and relief. Creativity is utilised as a mode of expressing emotional difficulties that may otherwise be difficult to put to words. Art Therapists work with people of all ages combining psychotherapeutic techniques alongside a deep psychological understanding of the creative process.

Clinical Psychology

A Clinical Psychologist deals with a wide variety of mental and physical conditions and disorders including addiction, anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, and much more. Clinical Psychologists use an integration of science, theory and clinical knowledge to assess, diagnose, treat and prevent psychological distresses.

Couples Psychotherapy

Couples psychotherapy offers a safe space in which couples can explore and better understand any difficulties that they might be experiencing. A couples psychotherapist can provide clients with tools and support to move positively through life changes, recovery from significant life events, and any other struggles that might be impacting on your relationship. Some couples come during a time of crisis within the relationships, others come to maintain a healthy relationship.

Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy, also called ‘Talk Therapy’, is the process of improving mental health and tackling psychological issues through communication with a therapist. You will work together in a secure environment to move through personal issues and work towards a change in perspective and behaviour through talking in a trusting environment.
