About MindCalm

Welcome to the homepage of MindCalm Ltd (previously Jenna L Sellis CBT). I am a fully accredited Cognitive Behavioural Therapist and EMDR Therapist working in Edgbaston, Birmingham.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a talking therapy which, like counselling, offers a supportive environment in which to explore and treat mental health difficulties.

CBT is a structured therapy which has a strong evidence base for treating difficulties such as Stress, Anxiety, Depression and Eating Disorders. It is often recommended by GPs due to its strong research backing. Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) is another evidence based therapy which is primarily used to work through traumatic incidents, which could lead to Post Traumatic Stress Disorders (PTSD).

Lavender-Flowers-45571030Stress, Anxiety, Depression and Eating Disorders are all problems which can begin to have a large impact on people’s lives. Often when people seek out CBT or EMDR, they describe feeling low, down or depressed in mood, or find that they feel nervous, on edge or worried a lot. This may be in response to very specific situations but can also feel like it comes ‘out of the blue’ or is present much of the time. Some people even describe having always been ‘a worrier’ but a particular situation or sequence of events has made this more frequent, intense or more difficult to manage. Other people are not so aware of their emotions but notice that they avoid a lot of situations which make them feel uncomfortable and wish to be able to confront these situations with the support of a therapist.

At MindCalm, I offer face to face therapy which gives strategies for managing and overcoming such difficulties. I provide a confidential and supportive environment in which to explore what may be maintaining the problems in the present and to establish and work towards achieving your goals for recovery. Both EMDR and CBT are structured therapies and aim to help empower individuals to maintain progress independently, following the typically short-term therapy.

I am fully accredited by the British Association for Cognitive and Behavioural Psychotherapists (BABCP) and an EMDR Europe Accredited Practitioner. This means that I have completed recognised training courses and I am required to provide evidence that I am continuing to develop my practice and receive regular supervision.

I am able to offer sessions both remotely (via telephone or video conferencing) or face to face in my Edgbaston office. I offer a free initial consultation over the telephone so if you have any questions about CBT or EMDR and their suitability for your needs, please give me a call and we can arrange this. There is no obligation to book sessions following this consultation.
