Deanne Gardner UKCP(Reg) MBACP
It is my belief that when certain key elements are missing in our relationships then personal growth is hampered causing internal distress.
In todays fast paced environment with its demands and stress, relationships both internally with self and externally with others may become severly affected and possibly effect our wellbeing emotionally and physically. As a therapist I aim to empathically provide a therapeutic relationship that will heal and enhance personal growth thus impacting on other relationships outside of the therapy room. I am a fully qualified psychotherapist and work in the Humanistic Person-centred modality.
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained at the Sherwood Psychotherapy training Institute, qualifying with an MA in Humanistic Person-Centred Psychotherapy. I am also qualified in counseliing children and young people, and counselling couples.
I work creatively with adult survivors of incest and sexual abuse offering long term therapy. My work is based around dealing with trauma and the myriad of issues linked to abuse. My counselling experience includes working with clients within the prison system and also counselling young people in a secondary school setting.
My private practice is culturally diverse reflecting my background and style of working and I also work with issues based around multi-cultural experiences.
Areas of counselling I deal with
- Child related issues
- Low self-confidence
- Low self-esteem
- Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD)
- Personality disorders
Other areas of counselling I deal with
Diversity and Multi-cultural issues
My fees are £35.00 per hour for individuals. £45.00 per hour for couples I offer reduced fees to students and clients experiencing financial difficulties. (by negotiation). I also undertake EAP work.
I offer long term or short term counselling sessions in various locations. Sessions usually last for 60 minutes on a weekly basis though both time and frequency may be negotiated, and reviews of the therapy are periodically undertaken. I am flexible with clients working patterns in order to accomodate those who do shift work.
