Shadow on Concrete Wall

TESTIMONIAL

“Before attending The Growth & Guidance Clinic, I had known I wanted to go to therapy for a long time but had never made any real attempt to find a therapist. As a Black and Muslim young woman, my main concern was that I would never find someone that understood the way my race and religion have heavily impacted my experiences in life. However, Letoya is a brilliant therapist who truly creates a safe space where you can detail every issue and problem without it being undermined or dismissed. Going to therapy has allowed to fully understand the way experiences have affected my life and how to move forward in a way that actively benefits my mental health. Healing is never a linear process, however with the help of Letoya, I have managed to re-gain my self confidence and I am now looking positively to the future.”

We offer:

 

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

Integrative Psychotherapy

We work with the full range of mental health difficulties, from short term to those that are severe. Emotional struggles present themselves in many ways, for example, Depression, Anxiety and Relationship Difficulties. This may manifest in struggling to work and concentrate, or you may find yourself feeling irritable, tearful or angry.

Sometimes, there is a clear-cut diagnosis e.g. Anorexia, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. More often, the problem may be more diffuse. You may have become aware that your symptoms or even aspects of your personality make life difficult. This may manifest in many ways, you may find yourself behaving self-destructively to others and yourself in ways that are interfering with your happiness or that of others. You may also feel worried about some aspect of your behaviour such as feeling aggressive or jealous – or fearing dependency - or you may feel isolated.

Experiences in your recent or more distant past may have left you feeling distressed or even traumatised. Childhood may have left you scarred, there may have been a difficult separation or bereavement to negotiate - or perhaps a relationship that has left you very unhappy. 

Therapy will help you gain a fuller understanding of what you are battling with and together think about how best to grow, in light of what has been revealed. Some people may need to be seen in the short term, while others will need longer-term treatment. Therapy is always tailor-made to suit your individual need.

We Offer:

  • Face-to-Face Therapy

  • Online Therapy via Video Call

Adult's accessing Therapy can be for many reasons, and begins from age 18 - often  to deal with psychological or behavioural issues affecting their life, such as Emotional Difficulties. Therapy provides a safe space to reflect on ourselves and those around us and how the distress felt, links with the rest of your life. Psychotherapy is not a treatment you are prescribed or given, you play an active part in it.

Child Therapy usually relates to individuals up until age 18, an approach which understands a child or adolescent's emotional and mental health state. The aim is to work with the individual's inner struggles, to help figure out feelings and how to express them.

 

Therapy for Children or Adolescents can be very beneficial, particularly if a problem is identified before it reaches adulthood. However, it can be difficult to know whether a child requires Therapeutic Intervention. If a Child or Adolescent shows some or many of these signs, they likely need Therapy:

  • Expressing thoughts of suicide

  • Persistent feelings of sadness or hopelessness​

  • Constant anger and a tendency to overreact to situations

  • Persistent worry, anxiety, or fearfulness

  • Preoccupation with physical illness or their appearance​

  • A sudden, unexplained drop in grades at school

  • A loss of interest in activities that were once enjoyed

  • Changes in patterns of sleeping or eating

  • Reclusiveness, preferring to be alone rather than in the company of friends or family

  • Hearing voices 

  • An inability to concentrate, think clearly or make decisions

  • An inability to sit still

  • Performing routines obsessively throughout the day, such as washing hands or cleaning things

  • Experiencing regular nightmares

  • Alcohol or drug use

  • Dieting obsessively, or binging followed by vomiting 

  • Taking part in violent acts such as setting fires or killing animals​
