Dr Deborah Wright D.Psychodyn.Psych. Pg.Dip. BA (Hons) BPC Reg.Mem. MBACP FPC
Do you feel low, stressed or worried? Do you lack confidence or find relationships difficult?
My name is Deborah Wright and through counselling I could offer you support in a safe environment to help you make sense of recurring problems.
I have 18 years experience as a counsellor and psychotherapist working in an organisation providing counselling and in private practice. Together we can reflect on your experiences, worries, the way you relate to others and your responses to life events as well as their links with the past. We could work together to help you move forward. This could be on a short term basis of perhaps three to twelve sessions or on a longer term, open ended basis depending on what you would prefer.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have worked with people who have many different issues. These issues are sometimes concerns that people have had for some time and others result from recent events.
I have a particular interest in working to promote individual creativity and self-expression with all my clients. I have experience of working with artistic and creative people and have experience in working with creative block.
In addition I have over 22 years experience in working with adults with learning disabilities and adults with autism. I have a great interest in education and special educational needs. I am also very experienced in working with people suffering from obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), obsessive behaviour and autism. Other areas in which I have particular experience include eating disorders and sexual abuse.
I trained at WPF Therapy; I have a Certificate in Counselling and a WPF qualification in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy (a BACP accredited training) as well as a Post Graduate Diploma in Psychodynamic Studies (validated by Roehampton University). I have a Doctorate in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy from the University of Essex, where I am a lecturer in the Department of Psychosocial and Psychoanalytic studies. I am a member of the British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC), British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP) and the Foundation of Counselling and Psychotherapy (FPC). In addition I am a member of the Association for Psychosocial Studies.
I have a B.A (Hons) degree in Visual Communication from Edinburgh College of Art and have an Art Psychotherapy Foundation Certificate from Goldsmiths, University of London.
