Andrew Dale, UKCP reg.
3 Grove Road
Hello. I am a registered Psychotherapist (UKCP). I offer a confidential space to talk if you're feeling stuck, overwhelmed or can't see a way forward. It's also a place to explore changing things in your life.
I have particular interest in supporting people with relationship problems, childhood trauma and abuse, bereavement, self-esteem, direction in life, and spiritual issues. I have experience of working with the following issues: Stress; depression and anxiety; domestic violence; workplace problems; retirement and stages of life; and personality disorder.
My training is Integrative. This means that I have been trained in a model which sees common features across all schools of psychotherapy and counselling and which sees relationships as central to psychological health. My qualifications are listed below. My principal qualification is a Diploma in Integrative Psychotherapy (completed 2015). I have experience of working in the private and voluntary sector.
I adhere to professional codes of conduct: The British Psychological Society's Generic Professional Practice Guidelines and the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy's Ethical Principles and Code of Professional Conduct.
I would be pleased to meet you for an initial meeting in which we can discuss your concerns and see whether further sessions would be useful.
