Bobby Bradstock BACP Counselling Dip.
I offer a private, confidential service committed to facilitating your journey to better mental health. I can provide a safe, welcoming, confidential space which contributes to supporting you through your difficulties. We offer short or long term Counselling and Psychotherapy for Adults.
We are a wheel chair accessible service. (I also hope to offer Skype/ telephone support in particular circumstances, please contact me if you feel this may be necessary)
My integrative approach to therapy which involves a combination of several therapeutic techniques associated with Humanistic approaches.
The approach used, focuses on the relationship between you and your therapist (the therapeutic relationship), as this is often an avenue into understanding your difficulties and gaining an in depth understanding of who you are as an individual.
This approach requires me to take time to listen to you and your difficulties and strive to build a strong therapeutic relationship between you, in order to build trust and support.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a fully qualified Counselling Psychotherapist, Registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
I am experienced in working with stress, anxiety, depression, trauma and low self-esteem. My professional background has been in working with Autistic young adults with non-verbal communication.
My approach combines different techniques associated with Person Centred Therapy and Transactional Analysis. I focus on the current difficulties a person is experiencing and listen to your problems. Through this, I can support you to gain a deeper understanding of yourself and your difficulties.
I am particularly interested in working with clients with Chronic Illness, such as Fibromyalgia and Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, with the approach to supporting clients with the debilitating and isolating effects that illnesses such as these can have on a person’s wellbeing and identity. My professional background has been in working with Autistic young adults with non-verbal communication and I continue to work in this field alongside my work as a Therapist.
