The Bamworth Approach to counselling, psychotherapy and specialist mentoring has been specifically designed with the ‘apprehension of having therapy’ in mind and therefore adopts a more contemporary approach intended to alleviate any discomfort felt during the initial stages of therapy. For your convenience as well as face to face sessions there is also the option of having sessions via telephone or Skype video link making it easy for you to access therapy from home, workplace or a location of your choice. Telephone and online video sessions have been proven to be just as effective as being seen face to face because they provide the same therapeutic result.
The Bamworth Approach offers brief counselling, long term or open ended psychotherapy and flexible specialist mentoring sessions to cater to the specific needs of the individual concerned:
Brief or Short Term Counselling
This consists of 2 - 12 sessions and involves focusing mainly on the predominant problem at hand. It can be very helpful for dealing with anxiety, anger issues, bereavement, mild to moderate depression and relationship problems. Please see ‘How Counselling Helps’ page for more details.
Long Term Psychotherapy
This is particularly helpful for complex and deep seated difficulties or for those interested in long term psychoanalytic exploration. Duration is 20 weeks onwards with sessions taking place on the same day and same time each week. Please see ‘How Psychotherapy Helps’ page for more details.
Open Ended Psychotherapy
Sessions are ongoing - from several months to several years. Individuals experiencing recurrent depressive episodes, persistent grief, complex relationship problems and trauma may benefit from open ended therapy. Sessions take place on the same day and same time each week. Please see ‘How Psychotherapy Helps’ page for more details.
This is largely solution based and helpful for those requiring a little guidance on ‘how to cope more effectively’ with any difficulties they are experiencing at the time. Sessions are flexible and can be booked as and when required. Please see ‘How Specialist Mentoring Helps’ page for more details.

In compliance with the ethical framework of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy, therapists are required to undertake regular professional supervision. Any client details shared with a supervisor are fully disguised and treated as strictly confidential.

They are then advised to immediately contact their General Practitioner and informed it is necessary to pass the information on to the relevant body for their own safety.

Initial Consultation Session
An initial consultation session is helpful especially if you are intending to have long term psychotherapy. It provides you with the opportunity to go through the finer details and discuss any concerns you may have. It is not required that an immediate decision be made there and then to commence therapy, this can be done at a later date in time if preferred.
Please note The Bamworth Approach does not in any shape or form whatsoever purport to act as a cure for any mental health condition. It is a mode of therapeutic support that helps to alleviate symptoms that occur with various mental health conditions or psychological distress. If your specific difficulty or mental health condition is severe in nature it is advisable you immediately contact your General Practitioner for advice.
