Why not invest in your relationship to ensure that small issues do not become critical and damaging and also to improve and develop the over all quality of your relationship and happiness?

Mediation, Seperation & Divorce
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.

Individual Counselling Services

Individual Counselling in Luton, Bedford, Higham Ferrers, Newport Pagnell,  and Milton Keynes

There are many different types of Counselling methodologies and when properly applied, they can be extremely effective. However, the same cannot be said for counsellors and psychotherapists. Not all counsellors are created equally. Some are much more skilled, experienced, practiced and effective than others. Many counsellors and psychotherapists are dilettantes, dabbling in the field without any true understanding of how to effectively and sustainably help people resolve their issues. Many are passive and useless, willing to collect fees and payments for years or even decades, for just to sitting with people and listening to repeated stories of life issues, hoping, that one day, by some miracle, that some inspiration will arrive to change things. Others therapists who appear to be proactive, can be equally useless. Having no idea of how the most common of issues truly functions or how people can sustainably make changes, they offer tired cliche', advice that sounds useful at the time but in the longer term turns out to be, at best unhelpful and at worst, demoralising, damaging and counterproductive.

Often, people seek help from counsellors when they have exhausted their own ideas and resources and cannot help themselves. TonicTalk counsellors and psychotherapists are the best of the best. They are professional, highly experienced, skilled, and extremely effective. They are highly skilled in utilising effective integrated counselling methodologies, psychology, psychoanalysis and years of professional and life experience to revitalise an individual's approach to their life and problems. No issue is too big or too small. TonicTalk counsellors and psychotherapists can help you with common to complex emotional, psychological and behavioural issue, including:

• Anxiety • Depression • Panic Attacks • Phobias • OCD • GAD • Stress • BPD •

Milton Keynes Psychotherapist 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.
