Discussing stress at work

This morning Richard Reid, Clinical Director of Pinnacle, discussed Stress at Work on BBC Radio West Midlands.

This centred largely around teachers; as this is an occupation that has noted mental health strains.
Why? Due to the teacher’s role […]

Don’t let your phobia impact your life

Many people, throughout the world, suffer from phobias. In fact, they are incredibly common. Sometimes the fear or phobia is minor and other times it is intense.

When the irrational sense of anxiety or fear caused […]

Are personal problems having an impact on the productivity of your staff?

An engaged and committed workforce is key to the success of every organisation.


It is inevitable that increasingly busy and stressful personal lives will, at some point, have an effect on an employee’s work commitments. If […]

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.
Nicola, Teddington
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.
Alan, Kensington
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.
Julie, London
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 for trauma

    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 […]

    Budget will increase mediation demand

    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 […]
