Barry Hannon (BSc, MSc, MBPsS, MBACP, MUPCA, UKCP reg.)
I am an experienced psychotherapist registered with the UK Council of Psychotherapists (UKCP), and a registered member of the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP).
I am experienced in working with a wide range of emotional difficulties and behavioural concerns, including marital and relationship issues, anxiety and depression, bereavement and loss, low self-esteem, perfectionism, anger management, addictions, substance misuse, phobias, chronic illness, life transitions and adjustment issues, and lack of meaning in life, among others.
My approach can be characterised as non-judgemental and respectful of subjective experiences and preferences; yet it is underpinned by a pragmatic professional focus towards helping individuals achieve their goals for therapy in a timely manner, and with this comes a profound commitment towards establishing integrity and trust within the therapeutic relationship. As your course of therapy progresses, you are likely to be learning new strategies for managing your difficulties, gaining new insights which shift how you view and relate to your situation, and developing additional understandings of yourself and others around you, all of which can help you with making positive changes in your life.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a registered member of the UK Counsel for Psychotherapy (UKCP), a registered member of the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP), a clinical member of the Universities Psychotherapy and Counselling Association (UPCA), and a member of The Universities Training College (UTC). I hold postgraduate membership with the British Psychological Society (BPS) and the Division of the Counselling Psychology, and I am a member of the Society for Existential Analysis (SEA).
I have delivered psychotherapy, psychological interventions, and marital/relationship counselling across a number of different settings. I have experience working with both adult individuals and couples.
I am committed to engaging with continual professional development. This endeavour includes receiving clinical supervision, engaging with my own personal therapy, attending professional conferences and seminars, reading psychotherapy journals and research articles, and conducting research to inform psychotherapy practice.
I currently practise as an independent practitioner offering psychotherapy, psychological interventions, and relationship counselling to the general public in central Peterborough (PE1) and Milton Keynes (MK10).
