Introduction 

Thank you for your interest and welcome. My name is Sandy Juric and I offer a professional and personal service using evidenced-based therapies including; Integrative Psychotherapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness and Compassion Focussed Therapy. I am an experienced therapist having worked in and managed services in both primary and secondary care, including addictions. I have worked in private practice for more than 10 years now. 

I am passionate about promoting the importance of mental health and wellbeing. Research increasingly supports the view that our mental health and outlook influences all areas of our lives including our physical health, relationships, work and general wellbeing. The modern pace of life can leave little time to reflect on our mental wellbeing and we prioritise our 'to do' list but this tends to have a knock on effect on other areas of our life.

Seeing a therapist for the first time can be very daunting. With this in mind my aim is provide a confidential and comfortable space for you to explore your difficulties. I support the need for choice and will work with you to help you to overcome the obstacles in your way and provide you with the tools to get you to where you want to be. 

I have experience of working with the following;  addictions, anger, anxiety, depression, eating difficulties, social anxiety, health anxiety, body dysmorphia, phobias, panic attacks, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), perfectionism, relationship difficulties,  self harm, stress, interpersonal problems, childhood trauma, low self-esteem, pain and condition management, grief and loss.

Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a versatile talking therapy which has been proved to help a wide range of emotional and physical health conditions in adults, young people and in children. CBT looks at how we think about a situation and how this affects how we feel and behave. The central message is that "whatever you hold in your mind on a consistent basis is exactly what you will experience in your life" - Anthony Robbins. In CBT the therapist and client work together to discover how thoughts, feelings and our behaviour influence one another and replace them with alternatives. CBT is approved by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) for the treatment of a number of problems including anxiety, depression, sleep problems, obsessive-compulsive disorder, PTSD and pain management to name but a few. 

Mindfulness Training

Mindfulness is about being fully in the moment, aware and non-judgemental. The goal is to accept oneself/others and not engage with patterns of thinking and behaving that can be harmful to us. It is particularly helpful in managing stress and low self-esteem but can be helpful to most people. This type if therapy is also recommended by NICE and has quite a considerable evidence base. It can be combined with CBT and/or other therapies.

Compassion-Focussed Therapy

Our brains naturally focus on the negative and we are often accompanied by a critical inner voice which offers a running commentary as we go about our daily live. CBT is primarily focused on thinking and behaviour change but CFT looks at the emotion behind people’s thoughts. By helping people to feel compassion positive physiological changes occur in your body in much the same way that just imagining your favourite food can make your mouth water. In therapy you will learn about why CFT works and will also learn tools to help you to help yourself.

Psychodynamic therapy

This focuses on the role of early experiences, drawing on psychoanalytic theory to help people understand the roots of emotional distress. Often when problems are longstanding in nature, there are relationship/interpersonal difficulties or when early life experiences are impacting on your life it can be beneficial to explore experiences. The aim for your therapy might be to find a way to lessen the impact on your life NOW and to enable you to make different choices.

Addiction Therapy

Anyone who is seeking therapy for addiction is encouraged to contact the service. The treatment of addiction is a specialised field and we have extensive experience of this area. Furthermore, integration of therapy can be helpful, particularly if there are underlying issues which are being masked by the addictive behaviour.
