Linda Helm-Manley BACP (Accred) UKCP
Welcome. I am an Integrative Psychotherapist with over 20 years experience. I work with individuals, couples, under 16's and families in Harlow, Sawbridgeworth, Bishops Stortford and the surrounding borders. I am a practising martial artist with more than 40years experience, including teaching in the local area. I also run workshops for the community and have been a teacher of counselling to new students. My facilities are in Harlow and Sawbridgeworth. Please state at the time of your enquiry which venue you are requesting.
When you embark on the journey of psychotherapy - you can explore any area of interest or concern in your life. Here are just a few:
* relationships *anger *childhood trauma *mid-life issues
* depression *abuse *grief *sexual expression
* self identity *self identity * anxiety and panic attacks
This shared space is for us to take time over your life. To give room to what may have been spoken a million times yet still has still not been heard. Or even to discover a part of you that has yet to be seen. Who knows?
Being involved in martial arts brings the physical into awareness. Some of the self esteem work I do is also related to this. The language of the body is an important aspect of my work; internal, external and in relationship, allowing focus on a part of our human being that can often be neglected.
More detailed issues are included below and on my http://www.sharedspacetherapy.co.uk/
I'm also BUPA approved: https://finder.bupa.co.uk/go/mrs_linda_helm_manley
My use of different ideas and practices such as psychosynthesis, psychodynamic, existential, philosophical, behavioural and other approaches, give us a choice to find a way to work together.
I have a passion for the local community and have run safety and assertiveness classes for young people.
I supervise other counsellors and have my own supervision and have taught counselling with a BACP accredited organisation. I regularly participate in professional development programmes and also run development workshops for therapists, on a broad range of issues.
