Common Issues Addressed

by AdminCMG

Counselling and Family Therapy Centre (CFTC Cornwall) is a specialist clinic dedicated to improving the psychological well-being of individuals and families in Cornwall through professional therapeutic support. The clinic offers a range of services, including individual counselling, psychotherapy, therapeutic groups, seminars, and educational events, all designed to promote self-esteem, respect, and a positive outlook on life.

One of the key areas of focus for CFTC Cornwall is addressing common mental health issues through individual counselling. The clinic’s experienced therapists use evidence-based approaches to help clients manage a wide range of concerns, including stress, anxiety, depression, and other mental health challenges. By providing a safe and supportive environment, the therapists at CFTC Cornwall work with clients to identify patterns of behaviour and thought processes that may be contributing to their difficulties, and help them develop more positive and effective coping strategies.

Anxiety and Stress Management

Anxiety and stress are two of the most common mental health issues that individuals seek counselling for. These conditions can manifest in various ways, from generalized anxiety disorder to specific phobias, and can have a significant impact on an individual’s quality of life. CFTC Cornwall’s therapists use cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and other evidence-based approaches to help clients identify and challenge negative thought patterns, develop relaxation techniques, and build resilience in the face of stressful situations.

Depression and Mood Disorders

Depression is another prevalent mental health concern that affects millions of people worldwide. It can range from mild, temporary episodes to severe, persistent conditions that significantly interfere with an individual’s ability to function. CFTC Cornwall’s therapists work with clients to address the underlying causes of depression, whether it’s related to life circumstances, past traumas, or chemical imbalances in the brain. They use a combination of talk therapy, behavioral activation, and, in some cases, referrals to medical professionals for medication management, to help clients regain a sense of hope and control over their lives.

Trauma and PTSD

Traumatic experiences, whether they are single-incident events or ongoing abuse, can have a profound and lasting impact on an individual’s mental health. CFTC Cornwall’s therapists are trained in trauma-focused therapies, such as EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) and prolonged exposure therapy, to help clients process and overcome the emotional and psychological effects of trauma. By providing a safe and supportive environment, the therapists help clients confront their fears, develop coping mechanisms, and regain a sense of control over their lives.Grief and LossLosing a loved one, whether through death, divorce, or other significant life changes, can be one of the most challenging experiences an individual can face. CFTC Cornwall’s therapists understand the complex emotions associated with grief and loss, and work with clients to navigate the grieving process in a healthy and productive way. They use a combination of individual counselling, support groups, and psychoeducation to help clients express their feelings, find meaning in their loss, and gradually rebuild their lives.

Relationship Issues

Relationships, whether they are romantic, familial, or platonic, can be a source of joy and fulfillment, but they can also be a source of stress and conflict. CFTC Cornwall offers individual counselling for clients who are struggling with relationship issues, such as communication problems, trust issues, or unresolved conflicts. The therapists help clients identify patterns of behaviour that may be contributing to relationship difficulties, develop better communication and conflict resolution skills, and work towards more fulfilling and satisfying relationships.

Addiction and Substance Abuse

Addiction and substance abuse are complex issues that can have far-reaching consequences for individuals and their loved ones. CFTC Cornwall’s therapists work with clients who are struggling with addictions, such as alcohol, drugs, gambling, or compulsive behaviours, to help them break the cycle of addiction and develop healthier coping mechanisms. They use a combination of individual counselling, group therapy, and referrals to addiction treatment programs to support clients in their recovery journey.

Eating Disorders

Eating disorders, such as anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and binge eating disorder, are serious mental health conditions that can have devastating effects on an individual’s physical and emotional well-being. CFTC Cornwall’s therapists work with clients who are struggling with eating disorders to help them develop a healthier relationship with food, their bodies, and themselves. They use a combination of individual counselling, family therapy, and referrals to medical professionals for nutritional support and medical monitoring to support clients in their recovery.

Chronic Illness and Pain Management

Living with a chronic illness or chronic pain can be physically and emotionally challenging. CFTC Cornwall’s therapists work with clients who are dealing with chronic health conditions, such as cancer, chronic pain, or autoimmune disorders, to help them cope with the emotional and psychological aspects of their illness. They use a combination of individual counselling, stress management techniques, and referrals to other healthcare professionals to support clients in managing their symptoms and improving their quality of life.


CFTC Cornwall is committed to providing high-quality therapeutic services that address a wide range of mental health issues. By offering individual counselling and psychotherapy, the clinic’s experienced therapists help clients develop the skills and resilience they need to overcome challenges and live fulfilling lives. Whether you are struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship issues, or any other mental health concern, CFTC Cornwall is here to support you on your journey to wellness.
