Bloomsbury Therapy Centre has been home to a number of therapists for over ten years. A Brief Guide to Talking Therapies is given below. Please follow the links for details of the therapies available at the centre. You will be able to read a little about the therapy and find details of the therapists that work from the Centre.
Talking therapies involve talking to someone who is trained to help you deal with your thoughts, emotions, distressing feelings and negative behaviours. Therapy can help anyone who is experiencing distress.
Talking therapies give you the chance to explore your thoughts and feelings and the effect they have on your behaviour and mood. Describing what’s going on in your head and how that makes you feel with a trained and supportive person can help you uncover patterns that might previously have been unconscious.

Understanding these patterns can then help you make positive changes by thinking or acting differently, perhaps enabling you to take greater control of your life and improve your confidence.
Typically people come to talking therapies because they :
Feel depressed, anxious or confused;
Are dissatisfied with work, relationships or lifestyle;
Deal with problems in harmful ways, eg eating disorders, alcohol abuse etc;
Are in some kind of personal crisis;
Find relationships difficult or are facing relationship breakdown;
Are stressed or anxious because of overwork or excessive responsibility;
