In clinical psychology, a phobia is a type of anxiety disorder, usually defined as a persistent fear of an object or situation in which the sufferer commits to great lengths in avoiding, typically disproportional to the actual danger posed, often being recognized as irrational.
Everyone feels a normal degree of anxiety in life when faced with such challenges as a job interview or a visit to the dentist. However, when people feel anxious a lot of the time about many different situations it can be that anxiety is developing.
Stress management refers to the wide spectrum of techniques and psychotherapies aimed at controlling a person’s levels of stress, especially chronic stress, usually for the purpose of improving everyday functioning.
Counselling for depression helps and supports people who are suffering from feelings of unhappiness, sadness and distress. These negative feelings may come and go, they may be constant and they may become serious.
Trauma, which means ‘wound’ in Greek, is often the result of an overwhelming amount of stress that exceeds one’s ability to cope or integrate the emotions involved with that experience.
Relationship counselling is the process of counselling the parties of a human relationship in an effort to recognise, and to better manage or reconcile, troublesome differences and repeating patterns of stress upon the relationship.
Grief and Bereavement is a multifaceted response to loss, particularly to the loss of someone or something that has died, to which a bond or affection was formed.
In sociology and psychology, self-esteem reflects a person’s overall emotional evaluation of his or her own worth. It is a judgment of oneself as well as an attitude toward the self.
Many of us get cross, or angry with situations and with other people. It is a normal emotion and one that we use to express frustration. But when anger gets out of control and the cause and effect are not dealt with, it can become a serious problem.
These are just a few of the things we can help with, there are plenty more

I found the whole experience incredibly useful and I feel I’ve moved on massively in a relatively short space of time. I feel like a different person to how I felt when I walked into therapy! The main thing for me was being equipped with the tools to deal with anxiety and realise that I can deal with it! I would thoroughly recommend it.
Although I was very hesitant to try this ‘therapy’ stuff at first (my wife made my first appointment for me), Richard made me feel comfortable and made me realise exactly what I could expect from the very first session.
I just wanted to thank you for all your help. I really feel like I’m getting better and starting to become the person who I really am.
I appreciated the flexible approach to therapy which was tailored to my needs. Richard was good at remembering what I had said in previous sessions. I found his questions intelligent and thought-provoking.
I have been through several life events all at the same time. Richard helped me deal with the associated mental health issues, in a positive and constructive way, which I genuinely didn’t think possible. I am now happy again, it’s been many years since I can say this, positive and smiling with people and enjoying life and it’s rewards and challenges. If you have any doubts, put those aside and take Richard’s expert and sensitive held. EMDR changed my life for the better.”

Counselling and psychotherapy are associated with traumatic events, but when someone thinks of examples of where it might be used they often think of dramatic happenings such as returning from war or witnessing a murder. However, trauma can come from smaller incidents too. During a robbery at the Bookers Cash and Carry in Wrexham earlier this month, two members of staff on duty were threatened by the criminals. Although nobody was hurt during the ordeal, events such as this can be alarming for anybody. All staff members at the Felin Puleston Booker site have been offered counselling by the company. One patient from the site was […]

According to experts, the dismal picture of the forthcoming financial year, as depicted by the Chancellor in this year’s Budget, is likely to lead to a large increase in litigation and, subsequently, to mediation too. When financial pressure is on, businesses need to recoup losses as quickly as possible and this is likely to mean an increase in the number of disputes. However, given the expense and time involved, going to court is not always the best way either to resolve a dispute or to continue a business relationship. An alternative resolution for disputes is mediation. A […]

How clients feel after their time with us:
I would urge anyone who’s suffering from a phobia which affects your life to get this sort of treatment.
I would highly recommend Pinnacle to anyone who feels they are struggling.
I feel like I’m getting better and starting to become the person who I really am.
This was the best investment I have made, how can you put a price on quality of life?
We are now looking forward to a fresh beginning with each other.
I am much more at peace with myself. I have more inner strength, which is developing everyday.
What I learned was invaluable, that although I couldn’t change external circumstances, I could change how I dealt with them.
I now feel stronger than ever and much more capable of dealing with difficult challenges that the future might hold.
I have found our meetings very useful and can happily say that my outlook has changed dramatically and positive changes have already started to bed in.
