ABOUT US

The Therapy Yard comprises a team of therapists offering therapies for individuals and couples to explore and overcome life, relationship and sexual issues.

Our team include counsellors and therapists working with a wide range of issues including relationship and sexual issues – many work within specialist areas within this field. Our associates undergo continuous professional development to ensure The Therapy Yard is at the forefront of up-to-date knowledge and expertise within our specialist field.

As such, all our associates have completed or are currently undertaking degrees or diplomas and attend CPD, seminars and conferences relating to our work. Some also teach within the field of therapy while others are media contributors.

We believe therapy should be available to everyone, so associate therapists in their final year of training offer low-cost therapy that is more affordable for those on low incomes, as well as discounts for students and key workers.

It’s really easy to get started, all you need to do is submit a self-referral through this website and we will match you with the right practitioner.

HOW IT WORKS

Therapy takes place in a confidential and non-judgemental space with therapists who are qualified and passionate about helping people. It is an opportunity to work through difficulties, understand more about yourself and your situation, while finding ways to cope, heal, grow, and improve the way you feel over time.

Sometimes we don’t know why we are feeling as we do, nor how to take the steps to move forward to a happier place. We may not have thought about how counselling or psychotherapy could help. Talking to and sharing your thoughts and feelings with a therapist can help to make more sense of what is happening and together find a way to work through it.

We understand how hard it can be to find time in busy schedules so we have therapists who can offer appointments throughout the week – daytime, evenings and weekends.

The Therapy Yard is a service that connects people in search of therapy to a suitable therapist, whether that’s online telehealth counselling and psychotherapy, or other therapeutic and psychological services.

OUR THERAPISTS

Our therapists may have different areas they specialise in or may use different theoretical approaches e.g. CBT, psychodynamic, person-centric, and integrative. The rapport and therapeutic relationship you have with a counsellor/therapist is key to achieving positive outcomes. As such, we think it’s essential that you choose the therapist that you would like to see – we are of course on hand to guide you to therapists depending on the issues you would like to work on. We are also able to offer low cost therapy with trainee therapists who are in their final year of training.

WHY MENOPAUSE DOESN’T HAVE TO MEAN THE END OF GREAT SEX

(WOMENS HEALTH)

‘Menopause has a physical effect on your vagina. It will probably become drier and be more sensitive, so you might experience painful sex’, says Miranda Christophers, a psychosexual and relationship therapist, plus proud ambassador for menopause platform Issviva.
