Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Gestalt Therapy

About me

Profile Photo © Dennis Rice - Strictly No Reuse.

A warm welcome to East London Therapy. My name is Dennis and my hope is that we will share a journey together in terms of learning new ways to address and help your anxiety, your depression, addiction, a loss or bereavement, or just a general feeling that life is overwhelming you at present.

I offer short term Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) which will enable you to better understand what is maintaining a particular issue so that we can work together towards making you feel better.

To be clear you are the expert on you and my role is to support you so that you may help yourself without having to spend an inordinate amount of time having therapy or continually returning to therapy. I offer an initial six entirely confidential sessions at a safe space in Bow, East London. Alternatively I am also qualified in Gestalt humanistic therapy too for if the issue runs a bit deeper and the support needed is longer term.

Whether it is anxiety, depression, addiction or another issue something is maintaining it to the point that you just can’t shake it off. Good therapy is exploring this and adapting our thoughts and or behaviour so that we break out of a downward spiral and begin to live more. Eventually you will become your own therapist and self regulate.

I offer sessions starting at £50 for 50 minutes to students, moving up to £85 if they you wish to see me at my practice in East London, Counselling or via Zoom.

Please feel free to contact me to discuss the type of therapy you need. Also remember therapy is for you so cancellations with less than 72 hours notice are charged at the full rate.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership

Accredited Register Scheme

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

I also work with clients who express what some psychotherapists refer to as "complicated grief," that is to say feelings around loss which are so overwhelming that it feels like you can't move on, that they just won't go away.

I am also interested in how the body itself can hold and remember trauma going way back, and also how stimulating and mobilised clients can become when they start to get back in touch with what is going on in their bodies.

"The body never lies. Whenever you move, walk or talk, you bring with you all your life." Martha Graham, dancer and performer.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
