John Castleford

Registered Psychotherapist, MA, mARCHTI, FRAI
Many therapists focus on what is "wrong" and use 'referring issues' as the starting point. However, it's becoming increasingly clear that too much personal introspection, guided or not, keeps the pain of the past very much in the present. Most clients want to focus on how to feel better rather than staying focused on past hurt. I base my approaches on using the very latest findings from neuroscience to fuel the primary goal of getting from where you are now to where you want to be. A good starting point is focusing on high points in your life: by recalling those we not bring great memories into our present focus but we also recreate those wonderful feelings we felt at that time. So, just as you do your best work when you are at the top of your game, focusing on positive rather than negative feelings from the past is a great place to begin work. Just ask yourself if you make your best decisions when you are feeling low. Now compare that to when you have been so buoyed up that you feel all but unstoppable. Most people aren't 'broken'. But they may be side-lined or undermined, held back, stuck, drained, numb, or otherwise constrained by a mismatch between expectations/aspirations and how we feel. The logical brain doesn't always align with emotions and feelings. Maybe external circumstances brought about persistent low mood. Perhaps your self-esteem took a nose-dive, or maybe you just find it hard to cope, or don't feel you're in control anymore. Our thoughts often control us, and determine our feelings -- as our behaviour often depends on how we feel. Our thoughts associated feelings often don't just control us -- they often prevent us from becoming the best version of who we could/should be. Are your thoughts stopping you from being the best version of who you could be? Do you think I might be able to help you? Here's something to consider. If I can't make you feel better about yourself within 15 minutes of an initial consultation then I don't deserve to work with you. Why not let me use my academic background and decades of experience in psychological support, coaching, education, and psychotherapy to help you? I specialise in supporting those affected by cancer, but can also help with issues such as low mood, phobias and traumatic experiences, I also specialise in existential therapy and have an extensive background in the philosophy of Stoicism [not the unemotional/stiff-upper-lip Mr Spock version] on which Albert Ellis' REBT and Aaron Beck's CBT both based their therapeutic approaches.

Dr Hannah Levy, Clinical Psychologist

Psychologist, DClinPsy, BSc
You thought that becoming a parent would be exciting, but you've also felt overwhelmed, anxious and like you’re struggling to cope. There's been an expectation that you'd be happy and even ‘glowing’ but the reality has often felt very different. It has left you wondering if you’re failing or 'not doing it right' which can make it hard to say you're not OK or ask for help. If this feels like you, please know that you are not alone and that these thoughts and feelings are very common, even if they’re not often talked about. As a Clinical Psychologist specialising in parental and perinatal wellbeing, I can support you as you adjust to becoming a parent, whether this is during pregnancy, after your baby is born, following a traumatic birth or when your baby has additional health needs or has required neonatal care. I also offer bereavement support when a baby has sadly died. Asking for professional support when things feel difficult can feel scary and uncomfortable. I hope you'll find I offer a supportive, warm, friendly and non-judgment approach. Please feel you can contact me to arrange a free 15 minute telephone call so we can discuss how I can help.
