about seb

 

If you have a problem that you are battling with, I urge you to get in touch with Seb as soon as you can. He's a really sound guy - easy to get on with. A great person to help you resolve life's challenges.

 

P.C. - Insomnia

 

NOBODY WANTS TO SEE A THERAPIST!!

 

 

It’s true though isn’t it? Like nobody wants to call out an emergency plumber or locksmith, but sometimes you have to.

 

 

The thing I find funny about most therapist’s websites – and I mean no disrespect to my colleagues here – is that when you read their ‘About’ page they often harp on about how they do things like 'integrative multi-modal person-centred therapy'. Let’s be honest. You probably don’t give a crap about all that. Never mind know what on earth it means! You just want to know, “Can I trust this guy to help me out, cos I’m kind of freaking out here?”

 

 

I hope you’ll excuse my language, I grew up in West Yorkshire and it goes with the territory. I know what you’re thinking: “Someone from Yorkshire became a therapist!!?” It’s true, tell your Granddad. I blame Thatcher for closing the mines.

 

 

As it happens, I do like learning about 'integrative' therapy and 'multi-modal' approaches and all that stuff. It's because I passionately believe...no, I know, that well-informed, well-structured, sensible therapy can help change people's lives for the better and help make the world a chirpier place.

 

 

If you're looking into therapy right now it suggests that on some level you're ready to heal, grow, or change. That's great! There's no shame in it. We're human beings. We've all got hurts and hang-ups that sometimes get in the way of us getting the most out of life. It's my job to draw on my knowledge, experience, and expertise to help facilitate that process.

 

 

 

How will talking help!?

 

 

 

I make no secret of the fact that I got into this work because I needed some help in the past. Even though my anxiety levels were through the roof, when I started looking into the possibility of speaking to a therapist I kept having the same two thoughts, "I'm just being silly", and "How will talking help anyway?" I had an image in my head that therapy was about sitting in someone's office and they hand you tissues while you talk about how rubbish life is. No thanks, not for me! Granted, some therapists work this way, and their clients often end up in therapy for years achieving little relief! That irritates me.

 

 

"I do swear from time-to-time, I am a bit of a geek, and I have a sense of humour that only my wife finds funny."  We don't need to spend too long talking about the issue - you can do that with your mates or your mum - I'm interested in helping you resolve the issue as quickly as possible. That's something your mates and your mum probably can't do, because it means understanding a ton of stuff about psychology and neuroscience, such as unconscious schemas, memory reconsolidation, cognitive restructuring, and so on. When I work with people, I work in a sensitive but strategic way to help you achieve your goals and make the changes you'd like to see. The better you feel afterwards, and the quicker we can make it happen, the more likely you are to rave about your experience and help keep me in business!

 

 

I'm not interested therefore in selling you anything other than me as I am. I want to give you an honest impression of who I am so  you can get a feel for if you’d be comfortable working with me. Half the battle of successful therapy is finding someone you click with, can relate to, and can relax and be yourself around. As you can tell, I do swear from time-to-time, I am a bit of a geek, and I have a sense of humour that only my wife finds funny. So if that’s not me, I’m ok with that; follow your instincts.

 

 

Outside of work I like all the usual stuff: art, music, food and drink, keeping fit, seeing the sites, and learning about life. Now, before this starts sounding like a rubbish dating profile I'll finish by saying, if you'd like to join me at my clinic in Bristol or online via Skype or FaceTime for a relaxed chat about what's going on and what we can do about it - free of charge - just give me a shout using the contact form below. I very much look forward to hearing from you. All the best!
