Linda Gregson, BACP Accrd, UKRC Registered, Post-Grad. Systemic Psychotherapy.
Welcome to my profile.
I am located in Barnes (close to Barnes Bridge Station) and offer therapy for individuals, couples, families and children in a safe non-judgemental space that promotes change and spiritual growth where you can talk openly about any issues causing distress or concern.
My approach is professional, flexible, creative and & I have over 20 years experience working on a short-term or long-term basis. The choice is yours.
I work with clients facing a wide range of difficulties including
- emotional challenges, anxiety & depression, panic attacks/generalised anxiety
- OCD, insomnia and self-harm
- loss of meaning and direction. negative effects of stress.
- relationship difficulties (for individuals and couples)
- workplace bullying to eating disorders and bereavement.
- parents and children
- Young people
I also offer Couples Counselling to help couples gain a better understanding why their relationships are no longer working. I work with them to improve their communication skills, heal past hurts and resentments and build an action plan to help them turn their relationship around and regain positive energy so that they can focus on creating stronger emotional bonds and gain a new relationship perspective.
My therapeutic approach is based on an integrative model informed by psycho dynamic thinking and which may include using CBT and Mindfulness strategies depending on each persons unique challenges and needs in order to help facilitate new perspectives and personal change.
This can also include exploring the past and how it may be impacting on the present, helping clients identify unhelpful, negative patterns and how they may have arisen, self-defeating thoughts and beliefs to help them understand and manage their emotional difficulties more effectively.
I invite you to come along for a first session assessment where we can have a chance to meet and discuss what you wish to achieve and change through the therapeutic process.
If you would like to have an informal chat before booking, please feel free to give me a call.
