Gary Bishop (MBACP) Dip. TA Psychotherapeutic Counselling
It can take a lot of energy to live with troubling thoughts, feelings or relationships. This can often leave people feeling "empty" or "helpless". Talking with a professional counsellor or therapist can aid understanding more deeply your historical patterns and begin to express more fully your thoughts and emotions. This can help free up that energy and help you begin to live your life more fully in the present.
As a counsellor I have worked with clients experiencing a wide range of difficulties, including:
Troubling thoughts, feelings or behaviours
Making sense of childhood
Physical, emotional and-or sexual abuse
Self-harm or suicidal feelings
Making sense of life changes such as redundancy or retirement
Lack of self-esteem
Some people simply feel there is something "not quite right" and want space to explore their thoughts and feelings.
My way of working is integrative, which means that I will adapt my approach to best suit your needs and will include elements of Transactional Analysis, Relational TA, CBT and Psychodynamic approaches. I have a particular interest in 'Relational' therapy; a way of exploring difficult, repetitive inter-personal experiences and options for change. I'm always happy to discuss the way we work together.
I am committed to ethical, non-discriminatory practice and abide by the principles and ethics of the BACP. I welcome individuals and couples of all cultures, faiths and sexualities.
