Linda Bishopp MA, Dip Couns, Reg Member BACP, MHEA
My focus is on you and what you bring to therapy. You will have plenty of time to talk and to be listened to. The initial session is to explore and understand what you would like us to work on together and for you to decide if you would like to work with me; and for me to see if I am the best therapist for you. Once we are working together you will have plenty of opportunities to discuss how things are going for you, whether you are starting to feel better about yourself, and if you wish to continue.
Working as a counsellor, psychotherapist, healer and Reiki Master and Thought Field Therapist means I work holistically. Every part of you is included in therapy - mental, physical, emotional and spiritual. I prefer to work together with you to find where you fit in your life; whether you need to change it; to more deeply understand yourself and how you really are. Working in this way tends to resolve presenting symptoms and give deeper understanding of what caused symptoms in the first place.
I believe we do contain everything we need to know - whether we carry that consciously or unconsciously. When we get in touch with both conscious and unconscious motives and how they manifest as behaviours are we able to be our true selves.
I offer psychotherapy, counselling, Thought Field Therapy, spiritual healing and Reiki* from my practice in Ashford, Kent.
I have an MA in Psychotherapy and Healing and a Level 4 Integrative Diploma in Counselling and have worked in several agencies counselling people bereaved and dying, taking referrals from the local psychological services, including people feeling suicidal, people who have been sexually and violently abused, including rape, people with eating disorders, anxiety, depression, suffering domestic violence, people with anger management problems and relationship problems and more.
I have been a healer for 30 years and am experienced in working with people with physical illness and mental pain, and those seeking meaning in life and asking spiritual questions. I am National Federation of Spiritual Healers trained and a member of the Holistic Energy Association.
