Andrew Pickles (UKCP accredited Psychotherapist)
0113 2892 658 / 07703 306819
My name is Andrew Pickles and I am a Psychotherapist accredited by the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP).
I work from a private consulting room in the beautiful village of Thorner in North Leeds.
I work with clients who need to deal with many problems and issues such as Depression, Anxiety, Panic, trauma, phobias etc. Details of all of these treatments can be found on this web site.
My way of working with clients is best classified as an "Integrative Approach".Integrative psychotherapy recognises that we are each an individual and as such embraces an attitude towards the practice of psychotherapy that affirms the inherent value of each individual. It is a unifying psychotherapy that responds appropriately and effectively to the person, and is not locked in to one method or procedure.
My experience is that clients respond differently to different approaches in psychotherapy. Some may respond to CBT, others to Transactional analysis, others to Gestalt etc. And this is what you would expect. It is the therapists duty to work with a client using the tools, techniques and skills that are most suited to that individual. The most suitable approach is the one that will allow the client to move from their current experiences to where they would like to be.
