Anger Management Experts

Anger Management Bedford and Milton Keynes

Our Anger Management specialists are fully trained and qualified counsellors and psychotherapists with years of experience in helping people of any age, gender and background overcome Anger Management issues. We help people resolve:

• Both Overt Aggression and Passive Aggression
• Snappishness, Quick temperedness, Resentments and Petulance
• Throwing and breaking objects, punching things and damaging property
• Shouting and Aggressive outbursts
• Physical, emotional and psychological abuse
• Domestic Violence
• Co-dependant relationships

Helping Victims of Abuse and Domestic Violence
Violence, aggression (overt and covert) and threatening and bullying behaviours are common to couples, families, work places and society as a whole. From childhood through to adulthood, an individual may suffer Physical, Emotional and Sexual abuse, bullying and harassment and this invariably has a long term effect on their lives and relationships. Our Psychotherapists and Counsellors are dedicated and experienced in working sensitively to help people rebuild healthy lives and relationships.

Domestic Violence Bedford and Milton Keynes

Marriage & Couple Counselling Specialists

Couple Counselling in Bedford and Milton Keynes

More than 50% of all marriages and long term committed relationships fail. Considering the long term relational, emotional and financial effects, it therefore seems reasonable to resolve issues rather than the alternative. Our counsellors and Psychotherapists specialise in helping people improve all forms of relationships including:
• Couples, Marriages & Civil Partnerships
• Parent and Child, Siblings, & Inter-family

TonicTalk can help you:
• Resolve conflicts and Misunderstandings
• Overcome and avoid bitterness and resentment
• Understand and accept each other
• Improve your Communication skills
• Voice needs and goals and achieve them
• Improve intimacy, care and Love
• Minimise all forms of aggression

Relationship MOT
Even great relationships have their issues. People service their cars and boilers as a precaution. Why not invest in your relationship to ensure small issues do not become critical and also to improve and develop?

TonicTalk Counsellors Can assist you when relationships and marriages fail. We can help keep costs to a minimum and reduce the psychological damage done to children. We help couples come to terms with the changes brought on by separation and divorce and empower and encourage them not to punish or act out of frustration, anger or spite but instead to work together for a healthy and amicable outcome.

Effective Anxiety Treatment

Anxiety and Depression Bedford and Milton Keynes

Anxiety is a common to complex emotional, psychological and behavioural issue that can include the extremes of Panic Attacks, Phobias, OCD and GAD. Despite being ineffectual and having side-effects, G.P.s offer Anti-Anxiety medication which can only manage symptoms and will not resolve the underlying causes. Counselling and Psychotherapy offers one of the few viable long term sustainable solutions and our counsellors and Psychotherapists have great success in assisting individuals to overcome Anxiety, Panic Attacks, OCD and GAD.

Depression Counselling
There are many forms of depression, both long-term and short-term, and often these are treated with long term antidepressants which only manage symptomology without the prospect of a real sustainable solution. Talking therapies like Counselling and Psychotherapy can bring long term sustainable relief and we have an excellent reputation for providing such help.

Therapist Profiles
Counselling in Northampton and Milton Keynes At TonicTalk we believe that it is important to be open, honest and transparent in all that we do and to provide sufficient information concerning counselling and psychotherapy and our counsellors [and psychotherapists] to enable clients to make informed decisions. With this in mind, we provide the information below concerning each of our therapists to help you with your choice. Please understand that it is difficult to write about oneself without it sounding arrogant or clichéd.

“An analyst [counsellor or psychotherapist] can help his patient just so far as he himself has gone and not a step farther. …. with patients who got ‘stuck’ with their previous analysts and this always happened at the point where the analyst could make no further progress with himself.”
            ‘The Realities of Practical Psychotherapy’, paragraph 545. 1937
            Carl G Jung (founder of analytical psychology).

Also, as above, we strongly believe that counsellor and psychotherapist personal development are key to client work and that it must be ongoing. ‘How can a therapist help others if he cannot help herself’? All our counsellors, like their clients, have attended therapy and are on personal journeys that require them to develop the courage, compassion and honesty to face themselves; their own actions, thoughts, feelings, mistakes and shortcomings. Therefore, they are all able to appreciate and help with the difficulties of therapy and the fears and frustrations that we must all face to grow and move forward.

“The greatest and most important problems of life are all fundamentally insoluble. They can never be solved but only outgrown.”
            Carl G Jung.

TonicTalk offers its clients the best possible opportunity to achieve long term and sustainable results through personal growth and change. As such all our counselling and psychotherapy client work is based on a firm foundation of tried and tested Psychotherapeutic theory and practice and delivered within the context of developmental and healthy professional client-counsellor relationships. While we may occasionally use a ‘tool’ like CBT, they are offered within the wider context of a psychotherapeutic relationship and not the mainstay of the work.

It takes a minimum of 3 years of study, training and personal development to become a counsellor or psychotherapist while it only takes weeks to become a CBT, Hypnotherapy, NLP, or REBT specialist and requires no personal or relational development. Therefore, we do not believe that such ‘therapists’ are sufficiently well trained or personally developed to appropriately support clients. Also, since studies show that a healthy psychotherapeutic relationship is key to helping clients and these types of cognitive and behavioural therapies do not insist on such; we therefore question their effectiveness as ‘stand alone’ therapies.

Wellingborough Counselling and Psychotherapy Lilies

About TonicTalk Counselling and Psychotherapy
Established in 2007, TonicTalk is a privately run and client funded, full-time professional Counselling and Psychotherapy service. Originally based in the three counties area of Northamptonshire, Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire we have recently expanded into Canterbury. Our goal is to provide premium quality counselling services at affordable rates allowing access to the majority of people.

As a private counselling and psychotherapy service, TonicTalk is completely accountable to you, the paying public. Unlike funded services including the NHS and charities who, regardless of their success or the quality of their services, have an almost endless stream of clients and little to no accountability or viable quality control. TonicTalk would not have enjoyed the success it has or gained a reputation for excellence and quality without being able to meet the high expectations of our discerning client base. Also, we recognise that the ongoing success of TonicTalk is completely dependant on the continued provision of high quality counselling and psychotherapy services including individual, couple's and family counselling; coaching and mentoring and Anger Management.

TonicTalk is therefore dedicated to its clients and the provision of high quality counselling services. As a professional Full-Time Private Practice that only employs full-time professional counsellors and psychotherapists, TonicTalk is at the pinnacle of service provision and accountability within the Counselling and Psychotherapy profession. TonicTalk has a vested interest in quality and accountability and is here to help you achieve the happiness and peace of mind that you desire for yourself and your loved ones.

Counselling and Psychotherapy Milton Keynes Lilies

Anger Management
Anger management in Northampton and Milton Keynes Anger management is a counselling service we offer to men, women, adolescents and couples. Rather than provide the formulaic, unsustainable, ineffectual and damaging ‘tools’ usually given by ill-trained and inexperienced  so-called anger management ‘trainers’ or ‘specialists’ so often associated with ‘traditional’ anger management . We provide a service that only fully trained Counsellors or Psychotherapists can achieve. Anger Management Therapy is an ‘in-depth’ and fully integrated approach to anger management that seeks to not only resolve undesirable behaviours (symptoms) but to overcome the causation behind them and thus achieve long term sustainable results. All TonicTalk Counsellors and Psychotherapists are highly experienced in anger management and resolution and are qualified and able to help you work with any issues that may arise during the process.
Client Testimonial: “I was very scared that my Angry Behaviour and stressed out attitude was going to ruin my (3rd) marriage and I didn’t know what to do about it… Now... My spouse is over the moon because I am easier to get on with and we communicate so much better nowadays… I am forever grateful”

We have developed our couples counselling service such that, dependant on the client or clients involved and their particular needs, we can adapt and constellate the service in a way that will meet the very individual and specific needs of those concerned. We are experienced in helping individuals, couples and families resolve issues with communication, behaviour and relating; infidelity; Anger aggression or abuse; Separation or divorce; Fostering and adoption; step-families and children; Bereavement and loss; Substance misuse or addictions; Disability and care; and loss of direction and happiness.

Substance Misuse and Addictions
Our Counsellors and Psychotherapists are experienced in offering psychotherapeutic support for all forms of compulsive and addictive behaviours including: Substance misuse: drug addictions and Alcoholism; Gambling, Retail, and Sex addictions; Gaming and Online addictions and many more besides. If one is to be successful in overcoming an addiction and not repeat or replacing it; there is a need to recognise and resolve the causation behind it. Therefore, TonicTalk takes a holistic approach to addiction, focusing both on the behaviours and the causation behind them and working with the individual and their situation as a whole rather than reducing them to a problem behaviour that must be ‘given-up’.  
Client Testimonial: “I, Mark Brown, test negative for presence of THC. Thank You :)”

About Counselling and Psychotherapy
Counselling and Psychotherapy in Northampton For many people making the decision to take up Counselling or Psychotherapy is difficult. They often feel that their issues and concerns are not important enough to warrant attention for fear of being seen as a ‘malingerer’, ‘time waster’ or fraud when there are people who ‘really’ need help out there. Others feel that their issues and concerns are so insurmountable and overwhelming that they are impossible to resolve. And if they expressed how they feel; that they would lose themselves or never stop crying; or that a Therapist would not be able to ‘cope’ or be unwilling to help. Others feel that no one could begin to understand how they feel or be able to help, so what is the point trying to explain it? And others feel that their ’secret’ is so terrible or damning that they would be judged and rejected if anyone knew.

Small or large; any issue or concern that is having a detrimental effect on your life or the life of your family or your personal well-being is worth investing in to resolve. Anything that ‘pulls you down’, depresses you, causes you stress, anxiety or fear or to devalue yourself is something Therapy can help you to overcome.

Counselling and Psychotherapy, when practiced by a properly trained, qualified and developed Therapist, offers a unique opportunity to engage with how you feel and think and with your past and present experiences, within a safe, supportive, non-judging, nurturing and healthy environment. It is a positive opportunity to work perhaps on the most difficult elements of your life and in so doing grow beyond them and be renewed. 

Everything that you currently Feel, Think and have Experienced is completely ‘real’ and undeniable; but, while it may do, it does not have to be the limit of your life and potential happiness. You can grow beyond Fear, Shame, Depression, Anxiety, Despair, Loneliness, Unhappiness, Worthlessness, Aggression and anything else that plagues your life and robs you of your Dignity, Value, Resilience, Spontaneity, Confidence, Tolerance, Appreciation, Peace and Joy. Life has infinite possibilities and in general, is what we make it. Through Therapy you can realise your potential and become all that you able to be.

While many may feel that Therapy is for weak, and perhaps ‘mental’ or ‘crazy’ people; it is not. Therapy is for everyone and anyone who wants to move beyond their issues, worries and concerns or overcome personal psychological problems that degrade their lives. Through the assistance Therapy offers, you can achieve joy, and a better connection and understanding with yourself and those in your life; you can become more tolerant and peaceful; and you can achieve a sense of self appreciation that will reflect in everything you do. Happiness is achieved when what you think, feel and do are in harmony with each other and your social and personal context; and Therapy can help you achieve this.

There is no need to ‘suffer in silence’ or ‘put up with’ things as they are. We are here to help you.

All our Therapists are experienced, skilled, qualified, reputable and professional practitioners who are able to provide help and therapy in the vast majority of cases. They are ordinary people who have worked and studied hard for years to acquire skills, insights, and personal qualities and achieve personal development that enables them to work effectively with clients.
