Bernie Bane BA(Hons), MBACP (Accred) Integrative Counselling & Psychotherapy
Spiral Holistic Therapy Centre
2 Shelburne Road
I qualified as an Integrative Counsellor at Mary Ward Centre in 2005 and went on to obtain a BA (Hons) in Counselling from University of Greenwich in 2012. I am an accredited member of BACP.
My experience working as a counsellor and in the charity sector has given me the opportunity to work with adults and young people from a variety of different backgrounds. I have supported people experiencing relationship difficulties, identity issues, sexuality issues, domestic violence, survivors of rape & sexual assault, people living with HIV, drug users, people suffering from depression and anxiety, people who are self-harming and people who have attempted or are at risk of suicide.
I see therapy as a co-operative venture between therapist and client and I endeavour to provide a warm, collaborative and non-judgemental space for you to explore the issues that are important to you. I will seek to see you and understand you as a whole person, connected in mind, body, spirit and heart. Through this I hope to support you in accepting and understanding yourself as a whole person, with the power and freedom to make choices.
The integrative model I work with focuses on the importance of relationships and is based on the belief that as human beings we can grow and develop in relation to others. I combine and use several different models of counselling, such as attachment theory, psychodynamic and person centred approaches (learn more about these here: http://www.itsgoodtotalk.org.uk/what-is-therapy/types-of-therapy). This allows me to meet the needs of each individual and to work with the focus that best fits the person.
I work in private practice at the Spiral Centre on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays. Please see the contact page for further details.
