Dinah Butler MSc, MBACP (Senior Accredited)
What to Expect
I believe providing an environment where you are able to talk freely without being judged and being really listened to is where everything starts. It is my aim to help you define your goals and for us to work together to make sense of things and to help you find your inner wisdom.
In the first consultation, we will find out what you need now. I will start to get to know more about you and your life story. Together we will start to get an idea of how the pieces fit and how we can work together.
There are many issues which bring you to therapy and we will come to understand these and how they affect your life and wellbeing more generally.
Whether you would like short term coping skills or to work in more depth, my role is to help you find your potential, deepen your connection with others and find your own solutions.
Challenges, crises and cross-roads, although painful can lead to positive change. Together we can work to improve your relationships, work through difficult childhood experiences, strengthen your confidence and your sense of who you are.
I started working in a therapeutic community in 1984 and since then have kept learning and evolving my practice. Over the past thirty years I have worked in the NHS, the charity sector and in private practice, as a therapist, lecturer, clinical supervisor, trainer and workshop facilitator. I’m still discovering what can be achieved through a collaborative relationship. Together we work to make changes, gain insight, increase confidence, improve relationships and work through trauma.
I have an MSc in Integrative Therapy, a Postgraduate Diploma in Intercultural Therapy and am accredited to provide Dynamic Interpersonal Therapy. I also trained in energy psychology, and enjoy working holistically.
