Clyde Wright UKCP Reg Psychotherapist, MSc Individual and Couples psychotherapy
Life presents us with so many pressures, anxieties, losses and challenges. Things can get to a point where we are not sure we have the resources to cope. At times, it can feel like we are very alone with our problems. At these times it can be really hard to feel understood by others and especially difficult if we fear the judgement of others.
My broad aims as a therapist are to provide a private space where the dilemmas and problems that life presents us with, or that we feel we have within ourselves, can be confronted, explored and addressed without fear of judgement. I like to develop a relationship of openness, warmth and a commitment to understanding and valuing those I work with.
There are many reasons why people seek out therapy. I believe therapy can be so very helpful in recognising how events in life have affected us and how these effects go on to influence our views about ourselves, others, and life in general. Therapy can guide us towards acknowledging, expressing and coming to terms with our feelings about ourselves and others. This process can transform our lives and free us to live our lives in a way that makes us experience life in a richer and more fulfilling way
You may be having problems with relationships, stress, mid-life issues, bereavement and loss, problems with self esteem and problems with finding meaning in life. I have worked with many people over the years who have wide ranging mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, phobias, panic disorder, self esteem issues, suicidal feelings, and adjustment issues.
Qualifications and Experience
I am a fully qualified psychotherapist with over 20 years experience working within the NHS. I originally trained as a mental health nurse and subsequently trained as a psychotherapist. As a systemic psychotherapist I have experience and expertise in working with couples, families and groups as well as one to one work. I also have much experience of working with Mentalization-Based Therapy (MBT), a psychodynamic psychotherapy. I am a registered psychotherapist with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy and an accredited practitioner for MBT with the British Psychoanalytic Council. As well as my private practice, I run a psychotherapy service in the NHS. I am also a site lead for a clinical trial in Mentalization-Based Therapy.
I have specialist experience and skills in working with people who might be diagnosed with personality disorder or otherwise struggle with interpersonal relationships. I also have a number of years experience doing therapy with couples.
I offer therapy for couples and individuals.
Getting in touch
Making a decision to step into therapy can be really nerve wracking. It is vital to find a therapist you feel confident in and with whom you feel can relate. To book our first introductory session you can drop me a text, an email or phone call and I will get back to you. We will use our first session for you to get a sense of how I work and whether you feel I would be the right therapist for you, so please bring as many questions as you like. This first session also helps me to understand what is troubling you and gives me a clearer sense of what you might be looking for in therapy.
