Doug Teeling - UKCP Accredited Psychotherapist (MA, Dip. HIP)
Bath Centre For Psychotherapy & Counselling
1 Trim Bridge
Widcombe Therapy Room
4 Millbrook Place
I am a qualified (UKCP accredited) psychotherapist, and believe firmly that in offering a compassionate, non-judgmental and safe environment each client can learn to trust their own experience and feelings. Having these experiences felt and understood by another person may feel new or even unnerving, yet it is in these moments that true healing can start to take place.
In the process of therapy many different issues may come up for you. There is no pressure to work to a schedule or through any set list. In talking together we have an opportunity to explore, reflect upon and understand more fully why you feel the way you do.
Whether you have recently experienced some crisis in your life, or are dealing with a more prolonged sense of something feeling not-quite-right, the space provided by therapy allows you to express your feelings in a safe environment.
I have a particular interest in how early relationships shape our experiences later in life. I also pursue research exploring how the changing environment affects our psychological well-being.
If you would like to meet for an initial session which is always free of charge, then please do get in touch.
