Craig Brand, Psychotherapist
Hi, I’m Craig, a counsellor and psychotherapist offering therapy online, 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 integrate a range of therapies, with a focus on existential therapy. For more info about the therapies I integrate and how they can help, see my “about therapy” page.
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, then for a brief period supported people as a personal trainer, before psychotherapy became 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, generalised, social, health or death anxiety
– depression, low mood, mid-life crisis or existential crisis
– bereavement & loss
– living with cancer & illness
– trauma & abuse
– relationship problems
– mental health diagnosis, OCD, bipolar, personality disorders etc
– giftedness, introversion & the highly sensitive
Whichever of the above you’ve experienced or are experiencing, you don’t have some mysterious illness or something 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. Existential therapy is about understanding those effects and how we respond to them, how we choose to live right now.
