Ros Welch is located in the beautiful village of Haddenham in Buckinghamshire, convenient for Wheatley, Oxon.
As a therapist one of the techniques I use is CBT , Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, the following is taken from a recent article of mine.
If you cannot sleep don’t lie there gnashing your teeth, get up, make a cup of tea (Decaf please), and write a list of everything you did that day even the small stuff or, read a book or run a bath, do not switch on your computer unless you are not planning to try and go back to sleep.
Generally we worry less about the things we can control than the things we can’t, worrying more about anticipated events than the ones that have occurred, fretting about fiction rather than fact.
When we worry we often take responsibility for things that are not down to us often wanting to feel guilt to make us feel worse, there are many things beyond our control, if guilt is your major source of anxiety why not adapt the fact and fiction format to include responsible for/ not responsible for.
Negative thinking clouds the mind and makes us blind to the good things in life, and those thoughts often stem from irrational or misguided thinking such as ‘ awful things always happen to me’ or ‘everybody should like me and its unbearable if someone doesn’t’, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), can be most helpful with this.
As a therapist I often use the techniques of CBT and can teach you to use them but, why not Google it to consider whether it would work for you? >> read more
I also specialise in :
Together we identify goals with realistic outcomes in acceptable timescales. We work positively to make a lasting difference to accept the past, make change in the present, and enhance the future.
Unexpected change can be difficult to manage, it can be hard to think straight given the busy lives we lead, trying to make sense of the unpredictable can leave us anxious, stressed and angry. Life’s changes; redundancy, bereavement, loss, illness or broken relationships can leave us in tatters and Counselling can help you on your journey to acceptance.
“It was very easy to talk to Ros, the sessions were relaxed and comfortable, I felt really heard. She often challenged me and my ideas, I felt I learnt something at every session, I gained insight and self- awareness, it was like a layer of skin being peeled from my eyes.”
“I had always suffered low self esteem and never knew why, Ros was the 1st person who understood, she helped me see things from a different perspective. I feel confident and look forward to my future.”
Following a successful career in design, marketing and finance, following a series of life-changing events I became inspired me, now in my 50’s, to channel my experiences into helping others as a counsellor.
