Effective Anxiety Treatment

Anxiety and Depression Canterbury

The vast majority of people suffer from mild to severe anxiety and it is often a complex pervasive emotional, psychological and behavioural issue that can damage one's joy in life and ruin relationships. Anxiety includes the extremes of Panic Attacks, Phobias, OCD and GAD and despite being ostensibly ineffectual at resolving causation and having side-effects, G.P.s continue offer Anti-Anxiety medication not as symptom management along side Psychotherapy to achieve resolution of the issue but as a stand-alone treatment. Counselling and Psychotherapy, with or without medication, offers one of the few viable long term sustainable solutions and Bob has great success in assisting individuals to overcome Anxiety, Panic Attacks, OCD and GAD.

Depression Counselling
Depression can take many forms, both long-term and short-term, and again, these are often treated with antidepressants which only manage symptoms. Without the prospect of a real sustainable solution individuals can find themselves taking antidepressants for decades without any hope of improving their lives. However, Counselling and Psychotherapy, when provided by and expert like Bob, brings long term sustainable relief and can change an individual's life.

Therapist Profiles
Counselling in Canterbury Transparency, openness, honesty and choise are four of the most important qualities of a good Psychotherapy and Counselling practice. Therefore, TonicTalk partner and associate counsellors do their utmost to provide as much information as they can to assist clients im making informed decisions. To this end, we include personal profiles for every therapist so that potential clients may discover a little about each therapist before they commit to anything. Please understand that our counsellorss are better therapists than self biographers and that it is difficult to write anything concerning oneself without it sounding vein, 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 each counsellor’s and psychotherapist’s personal development is key to their client work and their ability to counsel their clients and therefore it must be ongoing. ‘How can a therapist help others if he cannot help herself’? Each of our counsellors has, as part of their training, attended long term psychotherapy and counselling and are on personal journeys of their own that require them to develop the compassion, courage and honesty to face themselves; their behaviours, feelings, thoughts, mistakes and shortcomings. As such, they are all able to understand and assist with the individual difficulties of therapy and the fears and frustrations that we must all face when changing and moving forward.

Bob Chisholm’s Mini Counselling Profile

Canterbury Psychotherapist Bob Chsholm

Diploma Counselling
MA (Master of Arts degree: Religious Studies)
Service Area: Canterbury
Given his lifelong interest in psychology and his strong belief in the possibility of positive change, counselling is a natural vocation for Bob Chisholm. Before becoming a counsellor, Bob taught yoga for a number of years and spent a year in India studying under the late Sri Pattabhi Jois. But as a counsellor and meditator, what most fascinates him now is taking the insights of Buddhist psychology and adapting them for counselling. Bob holds a diploma in counselling from the Tariki Trust in Leicestershire and is continuing his training with Tariki in psychotherapy. He also holds an MA in Religious Studies from the University of Kent at Canterbury and continues to read widely in psychology, philosophy and religion. Bob contributes book reviews to Self & Society, the journal of Humanistic psychotherapy. He is also co-editing a book on psychology and spiritual experience. In May, he will be delivering his paper, The Buddhadharma as Psychotherapy, at the UN sponsored 2014 Vesak Conference of Buddhist scholars in Vietnam.

Bob favours a pragmatic approach to counselling and believes that it should bring improvement to the lives of people who come seeking help. But he also believes that counselling can help someone become more open to changes that at first might not seem like probable solutions. “The complaints that take us into counselling and therapy may feel like problems that need to be solved on the terms in which we understand them,” he says, “but it may be the terms of understanding themselves that are the actual problems.”
Bob, over the years, has successfully provided counselling and psychotherapy services to a variety of different peoples from differing backgrounds with a range beliefs and experiences to help resolve a huge variety of common to complex issues. Bob is an Integrative Buddhist and Jungian style Psychotherapist who is able and willing to work with you and any presenting issues.
