Dr. Connie Sweeney
07484 623 469
I would like to warmly welcome you to this page.
My name is Dr Connie Sweeney. I am a Counselling Psychologist who offers an integrative approach to therapy that will meet the needs of each individual client. I work with children, young people and adults who are experiencing a wide range of mental health issues.
As well as my private practice I am based within a primary care service working with both men and women presenting with complex needs.
Although my work is based upon a theoretical foundation, I understand the uniqueness of each individual client I work with. No two people’s experiences and feelings are the same. My focus is in creating a safe, friendly and non-judgemental environment in which a trusting relationship can be developed. I can offer you security and an initial consultation at half price so that you can come and discuss any concerns you may have and I can answer any questions.
My training and experiences as a counselling psychologist are drawn upon a range of therapeutic approaches which include psychodynamic therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and the humanistic approach. I currently work and draw from each of these approaches depending on your needs. The therapeutic relationship is the main integrating factor to any type of therapy. The relationship between therapist and client plays a crucial role in helping you to gain an understanding of your current and past relationships, and the way you may relate to the world, and to others.
