Emile Perkins MBACP(Reg.) Dip Psyc (Oxon), Cert Psyc
Seeking therapy can be a confusing process; one confounded by the fact that most come during a time of crisis. I provide a supportive, confidential space where we can think openly, free of judgement, about different aspects of you and your life.
I offer psychodynamic counselling and psychotherapy, both once and twice a week in time-limited and open ended therapy.
What to expect: In our initial appointment, I will seek to understand what is happening for you right now; how it may relate to past experiences and family history; and if our working together would be suited to your needs, or if another service would be more appropriate. It will give you an opportunity to build a knowledge of what my approach looks like, and to decide if you are happy with my way of working.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have worked across a wide range of clinical settings: private healthcare, NHS, universities and schools. I have experience in primary residential settings, outpatients, working with families, groups and organisations, and have conducted psychological assessments within high risk environments. I am qualified to work as a Child and Adolescent psychotherapist, as well as an Adult psychotherapist.
Originally, I trained at the University of Oxford in psychodynamic psychotherapy over a period of four years, culminating in my research in lifespan development. I hold membership with UKCP, BACP and UPCA professional bodies.
