We aim to provide effective therapy as cheaply and quickly as possible. We will not encourage you to commit to a block of sessions and in fact, are only too happy if you stop therapy earlier than expected because you are cured!
We offer a confidential service. We will not discuss you or your issues with anyone - including the media. Dr Mann is interviewed a lot in the media and often asked about unusual cases - but she will never talk about the more unusual problems due to confidentiality.
The MindTraining Clinic offers private, one-to-one training to clients (adults and children) who want to learn to deal with phobias, panic attacks, anger issues, depression, stress and other conditions. We specialise in EAP workplace counselling and in getting people back to work too.
We operate on the basis that all these conditions arise when our minds learn to react in certain ways; The MindTraining Clinic teaches you to re-train your mind so that you can overcome these conditions.
The MindTraining Clinic uses cognitive behavioural techniques to reprogramme or re-train the mind.
The Director is Dr Sandi Mann, a Chartered (Academic) Psychologist and Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society. She has written over 20 psychology books, including Overcome Phobias and Panic Attacks and appears regularly in the media as a psychology expert. She teaches and is Module Leader on MSc Applied Clinical Psychology at the University of Central Lancashire
She also holds a Diploma in CBT (accredited by the University of West Scotland) and is an Accredited EMDR Practitioner (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprogramming).

I am often asked how to tell if a therapist
is legit, given that anyone can call
themselves a counsellor or therapist. Or,
how to tell the good ones from the poor.
After all, no one wants to waste their money.
Key questions to ask:
Are they a member of a professional body?
Do they have a qualification that is accredited with a bona fide organisation?
Are they recognised widely as an expert in their field (evidenced by publications, books, media appearances etc)
