I believe that people come to therapy because they feel stuck and want to change something in
their lives. Often - but not always - this 'something' will be a pattern of behaviour that consistently
gets in the way of their true enjoyment of life.
Therapy offers you the opportunity to change.
Perhaps you have lost your motivation to achieve what you used to want when you were younger?
Do you struggle with anxiety every time you think about what you may have to do?
Do you feel inadequate - not as good as other people?
Do you get upset when you are criticised or rejected?
Do you just feel hopeless about the future?
If any of these feelings describe what you are feeling, I believe I can help you.
Most people who feel depressed, or anxious, or get angry at what seem little things, or even panic.
They behave in ways that help in the short-term, but maintain the problem in the long term and
stops them from changing the very thing that they want to change. This stops them behaving the
way they should and they get trapped and then feel even worse about themselves.
If you avoid parties, meeting new people, standing up to your colleagues or boss at work, isolate
yourself, or frighten others - and yourself - with your anger, I can help you understand what drives
your behaviour and how to change.
I offer individual or group therapy for all conditions, except PTSD which is only treated on a
1-to-1 basis. Couples and families are also welcome.
If you are somebody who has suffered trauma either in childhood or more recently, you can also
recover and remake your life. It can never be the same as before, but many people who survive
trauma find new and deeper meaning in life.
I offer a variety of models of therapy (*CBT, CAT, EMDR, Sensori-Motor Psychotherapy) and can
work long or short term. If you book an assessment, I will happily explain what all the different
therapies involve and discuss with you which type of therapy might suit you best. Some people
flourish with a more directive therapy such as Cognitive-Behavioural therapy, whilst others might
prefer working with the physical sensations and feelings they hold in their bodies.

The Centre for Emotional
Resilience Training was founded
by Dr. Nikki Scheiner after years
of running both individual and
group therapy sessions
on NHS wards.
The Centre is committed to the
ideal that anyone can overcome
the challenges they face and that
courage, commitment and
acceptance is needed to gain the
emotional resilience required for
good mental health.
