Dynamic, Integrative Psychotherapy in Manchester, with Shaun Brookhouse-one of Manchester’s most respected and well regarded psychotherapists
Hello, my name is Shaun Brookhouse and I am a Full Clinical Member of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy. I have been a qualified therapist since 1989 and a qualified psychotherapist since 1995. In addition to my clinical and supervisionary work, I am the Principal of the National College of Hypnosis and Psychotherapy a UKCP Founding Training and Accrediting Organisational Member, established in 1977.
Embarking on a course of psychotherapy is not something a person should enter into lightly. I practice a solution orientated, brief form of psychotherapy. Saying that, a commitment to the process is required, and I urge you to do your homework, in order to ensure that I am the right therapist for you.
In addition to being accredited by the UKCP and a registered member of BACP, I am a registered Psychotherapist with the European Association for Psychotherapy, the World Council for Psychotherapy and am a Fellow of the American Psychotherapy Associationas well as being an Accredited Counsellor with the European Association for Counselling. Additionally, I am an honorary fellow of the National Society of Hypnosis, Psychotherapy and Mindfulness. I am also an Accredited Solution Focused Practitioner with UK Association for Solution Focused Practice and I also practice EMDR andMindfulness Based Psychotherapy as well as hypnotherapy.
I have been providing therapeutic services in Manchester, specifically in Chorlton cum Hardy since 1991, and have worked with thousands of people from all walks of life and backgrounds. I am empathetic and non-judgemental. I embrace the core conditions of Congruence, Empathy and Unconditional Positive Regard which assist my clients in achieving their therapeutic goals in a timely manner. I incorporate Solution Focused Therapy with Integrative Psychotherapy and Counselling which makes the therapeutic experience one that is truly empowering and life affirming.
Since 1995, I have utilised Psychotherapy to work with a wide range of issues such as: weight control/management, stress management, anxiety conditions (eg stage fright, flight anxiety, general anxiety disorder, blushing, psychological skin conditions, and phobia treatments) and general performance enhancement issues (eg sports, business, and educational). Of course, these are just a few example of the issues that I work with, if you would like more specific information about how I might be able to help you, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Since 2001, I have provided Clinical Supervision for Psychotherapists of all levels of experience both in Manchester as well as via SKYPE throughout the UK. I honoured that so many of my fellow practitioners trust my work to the extent that they want to work with me in a supervisionary relationship. I should also mention that I am also currently in clinical supervision and undertake regular Continuing Professional Development courses to keep my skills current and to continue to act as an ethical provider of psychotherapy.
So whether you are looking to experience psychotherapy for personal development or to work with a specific issue or challenge in your life, I am sure you will find the information you need on this site. If you would like any further information or you would like to book an appointment, please either email me or call me on 0161 881 1677 or if you wish, you can book an appointment with me direct on this website by clicking HERE
I hope to be of service to you in the near future.
