Denny Stranders MBACP Reg, Accred.
If you need help with anxiety, depression or relationship issues, family or work conflicts, lacking confidence and self esteem or are generally finding life overwhelming then please contact me in confidence.
I provide a calm and empathic environment to work out why you think and feel as you do (as you may or may not know) and to gain insight into how this affects your behaviour. Gaining an understanding about yourself is a good way of being able to break out of unhelpful patterns and to find your own ways of coping better.
I am an Integrative Psychotherapeutic Counsellor. My initial 4 year training was in the Psychodynamic approach however additional training and experience I have gained over the years means that I am not tied to one model of therapy but eclectically combine aspects of several different modalities to fit the needs of each individual client.
Working for a well known mental health organisation I am a Mental Health Assessor for the NHS (IAPT). Within the NHS I also provide Solution Focused Short Term therapy on an 8 week programme one-to-one. As a Senior Practitioner Coach I have experience in the delivery of tools and techniques which can make it possible to reach the best outcome in the shortest time frame. I am also a qualified Clinical Supervisor and facilitate individual and group Supervision for many different organisations.
In addition to my private practice I am also an Affiliate Counsellor for BUPA and a few other EAP's (Employee Assisted Programmes).
I am also happy to be contacted by people who have tried therapy in the past and felt disillusioned by their experience.
Please feel free to contact me with no obligation should you wish to find out more...I offer a free 20-30 minute consultation to see if it is for you.
