Dr Nerys Owen BA (hons); M.Ed.; D Couns Psychol.
Chartered Counselling Psychologist
HCPC Registered Psychologist based in the heart of Frodsham in Cheshire.
Hello, I'm Dr Nerys Owen, and I'd like to invite you to book an initial therapy session with me in Frodsham. In our first session we can get an idea of what your problems are, what you'd like to change and how many sessions it will likely take until you start feeling better.
Together, we can work on creating the version of you that you should have always been. When we start, it's like emptying puzzle pieces onto a table. We start putting you back together to see the bigger picture, and how you can continue the work yourself outside of therapy.
With over ten years of rigorous education and training, I am highly skilled in offering expertise for adolescents, adults and couples in dealing with a broad range of psychological difficulties. I typically work with people who are struggling with: Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), depression, anxiety disorders such as Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), relationship difficulties, stress, overwhelming emotions, grief and loss and chronic pain.
I am trained in and use many evidence-based therapeutic models in my work such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). I am also a trained EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing) therapist. I use the latest methods and research to bring clarity and hope back into your life.
How therapy works:
Psychological difficulties can develop for many reasons which is what I aim to identify within our sessions. I help individuals find ways to live their life despite the causes, and alongside the symptoms.
Book an initial session to see what options are available for us to work together. I look forward to receiving your enquiry.
