Clive Barton UKCP Accredited Psychotherapist
Our history can sometimes limit us in our daily lives and relationships, and is often central to the therapy.
During each session I aim to create a warm, safe and supportive environment in which you can express and reconnect with your sense of inner wellbeing. My approach to therapy reflects my training that draws from western psychological theory and eastern practices of compassionate mindfulness, and how this approach can help in your everyday life.
An exploration of how you experience yourself and others in the present moment is central to working with problems like anxiety and fear, anger, depression, isolation or simply deep unhappiness. I also explore issues around identity, direction in life, ageing and death that affect us all.
Whether you find yourself in crisis, or simply need to talk through relational issues, being clearly heard without judgement is the most important first step. An increased awareness of yourself through this healing process will allow personal change. There is no set therapeutic formula, and each individual is encouraged to work in their own way, and at their own pace.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a fully qualified psychotherapist trained at the Karuna Institute. I have an MA in Core Process Psychotherapy and I hold full professional accreditation and registration with the United Kingdom Council of Psychotherapists (UKCP).
Although my present practice is based in Falmouth, I have formerly worked for some years with NHS clients in both Penzance and Truro.
As a former academic and government geologist, I have lived, worked and travelled in many other countries. This experience has given me an appreciation of diverse cultures and people, and an interest in the global community.
