Pamela Bradshaw UKCP
I am a UKCP registered experienced Counsellor and Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist and a Psychotherapy Supervisor practicing in central Cambridge. I work with adults and young people for short or long term therapy. I have extensive experience working as a counsellor in the Psychological Treatment Services at a local hospital.
If you are looking to increase understanding of yourself and gain some clarity in how you deal with the struggle of life, then you may find therapy helpful.
You may have issues connected with relationships, work, anxiety, depression, loss or bereavement, life changes or self esteem and identity. Exploring the patterns that can get repeated without realisation helps you increase insight and free up blocked feelings. Emotional unease can manifest in many ways causing a variety of symptoms or can lead a person to feel stuck or confused.
I offer the opportunity to explore these different experiences. I provide a confidential, safe space - opening up possibilities for change.
I offer online therapy on most platforms.

Registered / Accredited

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
