Stephen Openshaw, Ph.D.

Stephen Openshaw is a Psychologist and he views himself as a consultant to the clients he works with. People come to me with a variety of concerns or problems in need of solutions. He is a practitioner of brief, solution-focused therapy. The emphasis is not on problems but on solutions. With this positive focus, change occurs more quickly and most people see me for only 8 to 12 sessions. Most of his time is spent working with individuals or couples with relationship concerns, where he emphasize effective communication, with individuals for stress management, or with individuals or groups in organizations seeking solutions (BusinesSolutions). He also have a general practice and see people for depression and anxiety, including OCD and panic disorder. He worked for many years at St. Jude Medical Center in neuromuscular and cardiac rehabilitation and continue to see people experiencing acute or chronic medical problems. He is still a member of the Medical Staff at St. Jude Medical Center. You can pursue these links for more information about these areas or his training.

He is a Clinical Psychologist...clinical psychology is the branch of psychology devoted to the study and practice of psychotherapy. He offers psychotherapy and consultation services through his practice. Psychologists perform many different roles as scientists, educators, administrators, consultants and clinicians. Detailed descriptions of what a psychologist is and what psychologists do are available from the American Psychological Association (APA), the California Psychological Association (CPA), and the Orange County Psychological Association (OCPA).

It used to be that the most common difficulty showing up in a psychologist's office was a person dealing with depression. Now it has become anxiety...People are anxious about many areas of their lives today and seem to worry more than ever. Of course, if you are anxious long enough you are likely to become depressed as well. Psychiatrists and and other physicians tend to view anxiety and depression as something that happens to you, as illnesses in need of drug treatments...This does not have to be true for you!

Stephen Openshaw is a Psychologist and he prefers to think of becoming anxious, depressed or happy as something he do! You can, if you choose, learn to change what you do and how you think to become happier and live a more satisfying and productive life. Medication may help in some circumstances, but the vast majority of the people Stephen Openshaw see are not taking any medication for the areas they are working on. If you already have been prescribed medication, you also should be talking to a psychologist... medication is not a complete solution.

Worry is probably the most common cause of suffering. It is the thing that robs people of pleasure daily. For many people, learning to interrupt worry is a straightforward task that can be learned in a few sessions with great relief of distress. Similarly, "panic attacks" and other problems with becoming overly anxious can often be managed within a few sessions. For others, particularly those struggling with OCD and related obsessive thinking, it can take longer to find the strategies that work. They now have lots and lots of strategies to help you...Stephen Openshaw often find that the biggest factor contributing to success is your motivation and commitment. If you choose to work together and you commit to trying the many strategies that can help you, the odds in favor of your success are great.
