Antonia Brown PG Dip (UKCP, MBACP, FPC, EMDR ASSOCIATION)
It is normal to experience stages in life where it seems to make no sense, perhaps events feel overwhelming and life seems impossible to navigate. Alternatively relationships may be problematic or recurrent patterns of behaviour are negatively affecting everyday life. People find their way to therapy for many different reasons and it takes courage to make the decision. However, one commonality is how an increase in self-awareness can allow us to make sense of difficult and/or recurrent feelings and events, difficult relationships or feelings of anxiety/depression often linking the past and present. I offer a safe and confidential space where we can explore these thoughts and feelings collaboratively together hopefully leading to positive change.
I offer both open-ended therapy and time limited (12 sessions) therapy. I am also an EMDR therapist.
In addition I work for Petals (www.petalscharity.org) the baby loss charity supporting couples and individuals who have suffered miscarriages, stillbirths and birth related trauma.
We would meet for an initial consultation to discuss what has bought you to therapy now, what your expectations are, and to consider the best way forward. There is no obligation at this stage to proceed as it is an opportunity for you to explore whether you feel comfortable in the setting. All enquiries are strictly confidential and no GP referral is necessary. If we decided to proceed we would discuss a fee and we would normally meet at the same time each week for a 50 minute session.
