Dianne Mee | Accredited CBT psychotherapist, EMDR practitioner, Counsellor
Counselling can be so helpful in resolving emotional distress no matter the cause. I have been practising as an integrative counsellor since 2003 developing an approach that helps with depression, anxiety problems, relationship difficulties, aftermath of trauma, work stress, bereavement and more.
Originally trained in Person-Centred counselling and subsequent training in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation & Reprocessing) have equipped me with the skills to deal quickly with whatever you wish to work on. In addition I have an active interest in Mindfulness as a preventative strategy useful in recurring depression. I aim to make efficient use of our time working together and depending on the nature of the problem between 6 and 15 sessions might be needed, sometimes less. The initial session will be an assessment where we will look at the best way forward for you.
Appointments are available in Worcester City Centre on Saturdays and Wednesdays (9:30 to 4pm- other days may be available on request.
I practice in the Brierley Hill area on Mondays and other weekdays - evening appointments are available,please ask.
I am registered with several Health Insurance organisations and Employee Assistance Programme providers- AXA PPP, BUPA Provider, UKS Medical Diagnostics Ltd, PMI, Corazion OH, ComPsych, CBT Health and Bodycare Clinics. It's worth checking if you have cover for funding with any of these organisations.
I also offer psychotherapy and counselling via the internet using a telehealth platform called VSee as a more secure and approved alternative to Skype. It's very easy to set up and use. I charge the same hourly rate for internet sessions however it can be very useful if you are unable to travel or are short of time.
