Southampton Counselling And Therapy Centre
Southampton Counselling and Therapy Service provides psychodynamic counselling and psychotherapy, and as far as our funding allows, makes this available to those who might not otherwise be able to afford it.
Psychodynamic therapy offers an opportunity to talk through your concerns and difficulties with a trained therapist in confidence and at your own pace. It works from the belief that experiences in the past unconsciously affect how we feel and behave in the present.
On contacting us, you will be offered an initial meeting, which is usually for an hour and a half. This is an opportunity to talk about your self and your difficulties, and for you to get a sense of how we work at the Centre and whether you think this will be helpful for you. At this meeting you will also agree a fee for ongoing sessions, and how frequent they will be - this is usually weekly but can be of greater frequency.
Training, qualifications & experience
The therapists at SCTC are psychoanalytic psychotherapists registered with the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP), or psychodynamicly trained counsellors registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP)
We have substantial experience of working with people from diverse backgrounds and with a wide range of distress. Though our aim is to provide long term therapy, we are also able to work with people for shorter periods.
