Counsellor and Psychotherapist Profiles
Counselling in Northampton Bedford and Milton Keynes At CaminoCounselling 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.

CaminoCounselling 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.

Anger Management Northampton Psychotherapist Carlos

Client Testimonial: “Carlos, it was your ability as a counsellor that brought me through it all. You have a natural skill and such an understanding of humanity. It has been very hard work on my part, but now I am at peace with myself.”

Northampton, Bedford and Milton Keynes Counselling Services
Camino Counselling is a full-time private Counselling and Psychotherapy practice specialising in personal, spiritual and relational development. We are a highly successful counselling service offering all the usual services to Bedford, Northampton and Milton Keynes including: individual counselling and psychotherapy, Couple and Relationship counselling, Anger management, Anxiety treatments and much more besides. However, the one thing that truly resonates both with our clients and counsellors is not the solution focussed work but work in which the individual is encouraged to grow and change. To this end we specialise in Personal, Spiritual and Relational Development.

Personal Development
Personal development is key to achieving sustainable and lasting results. More often that not people focus on the cognitive: changing their thought patterns in the mistaken belief that their thoughts control their behaviours and feelings. While a popular and comforting belief that helps the individual feel like they are in control, this belief has long been proved to be fallacious by science despite the 'love affair' individuals in the scientific community and medical community have with it. The reality is that while a cognitive intervention like CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) can have an effect its results are short lived. It is therapies that are built on relational and emotional change that achieve long lasting results and this is because we are emotional creatures. In childhood it is our emotional faculties that develop first and fastest with our cognitive abilities coming last and finally finishing their development at 25 years of age. Our early lives are almost completely based in emotion and anyone who has been a child or teenager or lived with a child or teenager will be able to attest to the fact that they function from an emotional place. In recognition of this, Carl G. Jung, simply states that there are no solutions to be found t the problems in life. That it is Personal development that makes the difference for the individual. You cannot find a solution in just demanding of your mind and being to be a certain way that is more convenient for you, instead one must undergo a process of personal and relational growth and development. One must 'out-grow' one's issues and problems.

Spiritual Development
For many individuals, spirituality and spiritual development is an intrinsic part of personal development. CaminoCounselling Psychotherapists and Counsellors are all well versed in the majority of religious and spiritual beliefs and are more than able to help you achieve a high degree of spiritual expression, understanding and development. Such understandings can be at the core of their work with you giving it form, direction and context.

Anger Management
Anger management in Northampton and Milton Keynes Anger management is one of our most popular services for both men and women and couples. Rather than provide the formulaic, short term, ineffectual and damaging ‘tools’ so often associated with ‘traditional’ anger management and provided by ill-trained and inexperienced  so-called anger management ‘trainers’ or ‘specialists’. We provide a service that only fully trained Counsellors or Psychotherapists can provide. Anger Management Therapy is an ‘in-depth’ and fully integrated approach to anger management that seeks to not only resolve undesirable behaviours (symptoms) but to overcome the causation behind them and thus achieve long term sustainable results. All CaminoCounselling Counsellors and Psychotherapists are highly experienced in anger management and resolution and are qualified and able to help you work with any issues that may arise during the process.
Client Testimonial: “I was very scared that my Angry Behaviour and stressed out attitude was going to ruin my (3rd) marriage and I didn’t know what to do about it…Now...My spouse is over the moon because I am easier to get on with and we communicate so much better nowadays… I am forever grateful”

Couple and Marriage Counselling
In this modern day and age, it takes hard work and dedication to make any form of personal relationship last in a healthy and happy way. All too often, but for a little help, people find themselves living in tired or loveless relationships hoping for a way out. Although statistics on long term relationships are unreliable, almost 50 percent of all marriages fail. The average 'life-span' of a marriage is 10 years, though many end sooner, leaving at least one child under the age of 16 in a single parent household. An average UK wedding costs £20,000 and an average divorce costs £25,000 and one third of couples are forced to sell the family home when they split up. An average marriage with average costs will therefore cost £4500 per year... Couple and Marriage counselling is cheap by comparison, both in the human emotional cost to children and the couple and financially. While there are no guarantees, at £50 per session, couple counselling could save you a huge amount of heart ache and money. Most people come to couple counselling after something very damaging to the relationship has occurred which makes the work very difficult. Instead, why not treat your marriage and relationships with the same respect you treat your car. Service it regularly and get an MOT. Couple and Marriage counselling can help you not only save a failing marriage but also improve your marriage and relationships. We can help you improve your communication skills, understand each-other better, improve intimacy, manage disagreements and problems, and much more besides. Being in a healthy relationship is a skill which you can learn and improve. To use the car metaphor: Do not wait until the steering has failed at high speed and you have bounced off a crash barrier and found yourself parked in a tree. Yes, you can walk away from such a crash, but it is so unnecessary and wasteful.
