Over the past year I have worked with frontline health care professionals more than any other occupational sector (nurses, doctors and paramedics), most of whom feel overwhelmed and ground down by this insidious pathogen.
I have a range of specialties and experience and these are detailed below. I typically offer a free 20-minute initial consultation to ensure I fully understand your concerns and the nature of the issues, and will discuss with you suggestions for how best to proceed. As I have stated elsewhere, you are unlikely to be broken, and I will do what I can to help you revive former states of emotional wellbeing and even improve on them.
Here is what my clients have to say:"In a short amount of time, John has taught me new techniques that I'm using to get through a very challenging time. He has a different approach that gets right to dealing with memories and your perspective of yourself and the world. Highly recommended!!" AK, USA)
"One session - cured. Amazing!" (Audrey, retired teacher)
I've been speaking to John Castleford for a few weeks now. It has been so helpful for me and I couldn't have got through the past 6 weeks without his help. (BR, UK)
"It has been so valuable to have John's support during what has been a very difficult, uncertain period in my life. Living with significant anxiety had been so frightening and challenging. The sessions with John have really helped me, not only to understand what is happening, but also to explore this and start to find ways that it can be overcome. I hope that I can start to live a life where anxiety doesn't always have the staring role. Thank you John!" (KK, UK)
"I recently completed some counselling with John Castleford from Life-Minded, who I can’t thank enough. He has been wonderful and I am so grateful to him for his support. He has really helped me to take control back within my life and steady the waters, he has been like a lighthouse in the storms and helped to guide me through the troubled waters and create the reflective space that I needed to see things more clearly and make conscious steps towards changing my present and my future. I am eternally grateful to him and for Frontline19 in giving me the opportunity to undertake this counselling. Thank you with all my heart!" KJ (UK)
I was very impressed with the results of just one session of BWRT dealing with a painful memory. In very little time the intensity of the emotional response triggered by the memory was drastically reduced to almost negligible levels, which have been maintained over time proving the efficacy of both the technique and its practitioner. John is highly knowledgeable and skilled and I definitely recommend him." (FC)
"I didn't know that people like John do exist ! One day I was hopeless, a total wreck, and from the 1st session I felt tremendously different, he LISTENS, he CARES . I am convinced that clients do come 1st to him. I really want to thank you for making me smile ! For opening my eyes to things I didn't see and, most importantly, not judging me ! And I know the rest is yet to come so Thank You!" (Nancy, Vetinarian)
"Regarding our Frontline19 sessions I found them as lifesaving and I was very happy with them. They were my one of the best experience ever helping me come back on track. You helped me to reach back the normality and then go forward choosing new challenges. Some sad moments came back to me with the death of my cousin in my family town but I knew how to deal with them. I am so pleased and grateful to have the opportunity to meet you. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart." RC.
I have to say, that since I've talked to you, my anxiety is way down and I have a new sense of hope because I'm seeing that this really worked. I can actually change the direction of my thoughts. Amazing." (JP, Canada)
"I've been doing regular CTB therapy for 6 months and no expressive results, 2 sessions with John helped so much! Thank you !" (João, Brasil)
"John, you have helped me to understand my worth, and realise what I am dealing with. You have helped me regain my self-esteem and my confidence--but most of all I've learned I can take time out away from work to help me relax and switch off, which I have not done in over a year. Thank you, John! (EN, UK)
‘John was there for me when I was having a difficult time. His sessions were non- judgemental and a safe space that was created around me and my needs. I appreciated his giving me the time to reflect on things and develop strategies to deal with them in the long term. I found comfort in his relaxed nature and added humour. Thank you!" RF (UK)
