Neil Turner UKCP MBACP - Individuals & Couples
37 Museum Street

I offer psychotherapy for both individuals and couples and my style is both friendly and in-depth. As an integrative practitioner I draw on different tools and models depending on your needs. The aim of my work is to help you make sense of whatever you are facing and as a result feel more confident and at ease within yourself, your life and your relationships.
Here's how I see therapy working -
Sometimes we find ourselves feeling overwhelmed and confused about the upsets and challenges we face and often feel isolated with our experiences. I see Psychotherapy as offering a unique opportunity to feel supported as well as gain new perspectives that may not have been considered. By coming to therapy and sharing our struggles we slowly strengthen our understanding and develop confidence. Along the way we learn new ways of being, coping and relating that we can then apply throughout our lives.
About me -
Before training to be a therapist I worked as a commercial Designer. After many years of working in this sector I decided to follow my passion for psychology and healing. As a therapist, I believe we all have the potential and capacity to heal, to transform in order to get the most out of our lives.
What to expect -
We meet on a weekly basis and this can be for a defined period of time or on an on-going arrangement. Our work is confidential and I provide a safe space for you to talk about the things that are troubling you. These may be be current or they may be difficulties that you've been struggling with for some time. The aim of our work together is to help you better understand your difficulties and challenges and as a result feel
Often couples who come to work with me describe having lost connection with each other. This loss of connection is very painful and is often at the heart of most relationship conflict. I see much my work as helping couples to find their way back into connection.
Generally, we aren't taught how to be in a relationship or how best to express our needs and fully understand the needs of out partner. What I offer is an opportunity for couples to learn new ways in which to communicate and as a result develop deeper understanding of yourself, your partner and the relationship itself.
