Shane Sneyd MBACP, UKCP & BPC
I am a BACP Accredited Counsellor/Psychotherapist; UKCP & BPC Registered Jungian Analytical Psychotherapist and a member of the West Midlands Institute of Psychotherapy.
In a non-judgemental way I would like to understand the issues that are troubling you. I deal with a range of issues such as; relationship difficulties, anxiety, depression and compulsive behaviours.
The underlying causes of your problems will be explored and consideration given to what might be preventing you from finding solutions. The aim of Analytical Psychotherapy is to help you understand yourself better so that you can change your behaviour in ways that will enable you to move forward in a more satisfying and constructive way.
My consulting room is based about five minute walk from Sedgley Town Centre. It has free parking available. Also you can reach it via public transport.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have been established in private practice since 2003. The road to becoming a Counsellor and Psychotherapist began when I completed a BPhil degree in Community, Youth and Play work in 2001 with Birmingham University. I had recognised the value of using counselling skills within the setting I was working. As a result I enrolled and completed an Advanced Diploma in Person Centred Counselling at Wolverhampton College in 2003.
In 2003 I was also successful in becoming a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). This enabled me to become established in private practice. During the period from 2003 to 2008 I completed an MA in Solution Focused Brief Therapy at Birmingham University, followed by an Infant Observation, awarded by West Midlands Institute of Psychotherapy (WMIP). I then gained accreditation status with BACP.
In October 2015 I was successful in passing the training in Jungian Analytical Psychotherapy and becoming a member of the UK Council for Psychotherapy. December 2016 I became a member of the British Psychoanalytical Council (BPC). I currently work full-time in private practice and I am an associate counsellor/psychotherapist to the Professional Footballers Association (PFA) in partnership with the Sporting Chance Clinic.
I am the current editor for the West Midlands Institute of Psychotherapy e-bulletin, visiting lecturer and training committee member on the training in Analytical Psychotherapy Training.
My Qualifications include; Diploma in Supervision 2019, Jungian Analytical Psychotherapist training 2015 awarded by West Midlands Institute of Psychotherapy; Infant Observation 2009 awarded by West Midlands Institute of Psychotherapy; MA Solution Focused Brief Therapy, 2006 awarded by the Birmingham University; Dip Couns, 2003 awarded by Wolverhampton College; BPhil Community, Youth and Play , 2001 awarded by Birmingham University.
