E. Theresa Long
Every client is unique and needs different ingredients in what they hope to gain from therapy. I work with a range of theories which allow me to adapt to suit your needs. I work Psychodynamically exploring the past, to see how it is affecting the present. Humanistic, Person Centred and Cognitive behavioural therapies (CBT) Cognitive Analytical Therapy (CAT) I integrate CBT as a means of exploring links between patterns of thought, emotions, behaviour and physical symptoms.
As you learn more about yourself, by deconstructing your maladaptive past thoughts, feelings and old behaviours you can then reconstruct and build your thoughts feeling and behaviour and make it how you want it to be in your relationships with others and with yourself, discover ways to improve your emotional well-being.
For example, you may come to therapy with a particular difficulty, a general feeling of sadness or a longing to understand yourself more. My approach helps to address present issues as well as considering how influences and experience from the past may be interfering with personal growth or affecting your ability to cope emotionally.
I am now offering online appointments so please do get in touch if you have any questions about this.

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
