Craig Brand, Psychotherapist
Hi, I’m Craig, a counsellor and psychotherapist offering therapy online, via Zoom & phone, across the UK.
Life is short, and our emotional struggles can get in the way of so much.
You may have a specific issue affecting your life, or a vague sense of not feeling right, but want to understand yourself more deeply. Whatever it is you’re struggling with, therapy can give you the time & space to feel supported and make sense of how you’re feeling, and free you up to live life as you want to.
I offer a down-to-earth, real-world take on therapy, and have worked with people from all walks of life. I offer flexible sessions – weekdays or weekends.
If you’re unsure what to do next, feel free to read the rest of my site, or send me a text or e-mail, or give me a call, and I can help you take the next step.
I initially trained in Human Geography, looking at how we interact with each other and life. For a brief spell I supported people as a personal trainer. Psychotherapy helped me through plenty of highs and lows, before becoming my true passion. I graduated from the Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute with a BSc in Integrative Psychotherapy (1st class hons), and have worked in both private practice and charity settings. I am a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists.
Some common life issues I can help with:
- anxiety & stress – general, social or health anxiety
- depression, low mood & motivation
- loss & bereavement
- the effects of cancer/illness
- living with various mental health diagnoses
- relationship difficulties
- low confidence/self esteem
- life transitions – university, family life, divorce, redundancy etc
- intense emotion – anger, jealousy, euphoria, obsessive thoughts, compulsions
- existential crisis, lack of meaning in life
Whichever of the above you’ve experienced or are experiencing, I won’t label you, or feel you have some mysterious illness or anything “wrong” with you. Life can be hard, complicated and have a huge effect on all of us.
Our biology affects us, our past experiences affect us, and life and the future affect us too. But how we understand and respond to all of those effects, how we choose to live right now, is the most powerful tool we have.
