At The Wellbeing Rooms we aim to help all of our clients live the healthiest lives they can. In order to reach this goal we offer therapeutic rooms to various health and wellbeing practitioners so that they can offer their own services to clients. We are pleased that a range of professional services are available to clients and these can be seen below. You can read more about each Wellbeing Rooms practitioner on our WELLBEING PROFESSIONALS page, please get in touch with the particular practitioner if you wish to book an appointment with them or if you have any questions about the service they can offer you. The practitioners who practice from The Wellbeing Rooms must be fully qualified in their area of expertise, be regulated by a professional body and be fully insured. However, when choosing a therapist of any discipline, it is recommended that you check their qualifications and experience yourself too, so you can make a fully informed choice of who you wish to see.
We are currently welcoming new therapists and wellbeing practitioners who wish to rent a room at The Wellbeing Rooms. Please just drop us a line if you would like to enquire about room rental at our newly refurbished premises, we would be delighted to hear from you!
Please note that the practitioners who rent rooms at The Wellbeing Rooms all have their own individual businesses. The Wellbeing Rooms holds no responsibility for each practitioner in terms of their business, clinical practice, or booking or cancelling appointments.
Clinical psychologists help with a variety of mental health difficulties. These include anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, addiction, relationship issues, amongst many other things. Clinical psychologists are highly trained over at least 8-9 years and have an undergraduate degree in Psychology and a Doctorate of Clinical Psychology. Clinical psychologists work with clients actively and collaboratively, using evidence based psychological therapies and techniques (i.e. that have been widely researched and shown to be effective) that help clients develop effective strategies to learn how to help themselves. These include a variety of therapies such as cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT), eye movement desensitisation & reprocessing (EMDR), compassion focused therapy (CFT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), amongst others. Clinical psychologists help clients to build and understand a picture of their life (called a 'psychological formulation') which helps to understand the various factors that may be influencing the client at present. Clinical psychologists will then often use a combination of therapies to provide the best tailored psychological intervention for each client.
We have a number of clinical psychologists who can offer services to adults, young adults, children, families and couples. You can see what clinical psychologists are available to work with you by looking at the WELLBEING PROFESSIONALS page.
Counselling psychologists use psychological theory and research in therapeutic work to help clients with a range of difficult life issues and/or mental health conditions including anxiety, depression, trauma, loss and relationship difficulties. Counselling Psychologists are trained in a number of psychological therapies including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Compassion Focused Therapy, Person Centred Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and work collaboratively with clients to enable them to consider change and take positive steps towards improving their emotional wellbeing.
Working as a counselling psychologist requires a high level of training and self-awareness. To practice as a Counselling Psychologist in the UK it is required to have an undergraduate degree in Psychology and a Doctorate in Counselling Psychology or equivalent.
COGNITIVE BEHAVIOUR THERAPY (CBT) THERAPISTS
Cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) therapists often work with difficulties such as anxiety and depression, and other mental health problems. CBT therapists often have different professional backgrounds and often have a qualification (such as a diploma) in working with CBT, which is a talking therapy that can help you manage your difficulties by helping to identify and change the way you think and behave. CBT therapy is often helpful for more straightforward difficulties.
CBT is an active therapy involving collaborative involvement from both client and therapist and usually involves in between session work such as keeping diaries of thought patterns.
There are various CBT therapists at The Wellbeing Rooms, please see the WELLBEING PROFESSIONALS page for further information and to book an appointment.
Counsellors provide a therapeutic space for the client and counsellor to talk through problems and concerns. There is often not a specified structure or agenda, and it is more of a space for exploration rather than learning specific strategies or techniques. Counselling is often more helpful for difficulties where you may be looking for a safe space to think things through, such as relationship problems, adjusting to life events and so on. However, depending on their training, a counsellor may use a specific form of therapy to help the client.
Yoga therapists have extensive training and adopt a holistic approach to various physical, psychological and emotional issues that a client may be facing in their lives. The daily challenges presented by chronic disease, such as arthritis, osteoporosis, chronic back pain, Parkinson’s Disease for example, are often accompanied by general anxiety and depression. Yoga therapists are not trained to deal with serious mental issues but do tend to see many people with mild forms of depression. A growing body of scientific evidence supports the choice of yoga as a valid intervention for many of these issues. Yoga therapy offers support, improved health and wellbeing and encourages better lifestyle choices.
In a typical first yoga therapy session a medical history will be taken by the yoga therapist. The body, posture, simple movements and the breath may be observed and issues and concerns discussed. Working with yoga therapeutically is about the whole person. The yoga therapist will then assess how yoga therapy may help before planning and teaching a practice tailored to the needs of that individual. Practices may include one or more of a range of techniques such as posture work, breathing, relaxation, working with sound, reflection, and/or meditation. A number of sessions are likely to be needed to confirm safe and appropriate practice. (The above information provided by Lindsay Bunch, Yoga Therapist)
