Graeme Galton MA, UKCP registered
I am an experienced attachment-based psychoanalytic psychotherapist.
In addition to my private practice, I worked for 16 years in the National Health Service as a psychotherapist and clinical supervisor. I am a Consultant Psychotherapist at the Clinic for Dissociative Studies as well as teaching on the clinical training programme at The Bowlby Centre. I am a supervisor approved by the UK Council for Psychotherapy.
My clinical practice includes working with depression, anxiety, relationship and family issues, bereavement, post-traumatic stress and dissociation.
I am a registered member of The Bowlby Centre and am registered with the UK Council for Psychotherapy under registration number 4156164. I am a member of the European Association for Psychotherapy and holder of the European Certificate of Psychotherapy, the European-wide standard for psychotherapy training.
I work with an attachment-based approach within a relational psychodynamic model. In essence, I believe the effectiveness of psychotherapy is based on two complementary elements. The first is the understanding and insight that emerges during therapy about repeating patterns in a client's relationships, both current and past. We all carry an internal working model of relationships and often find ourselves repeating patterns in our dealings with other people. The second key element of psychotherapy centres on the healing capacity of a positive and collaborative relationship between client and therapist. Together, these complementary strands of psychotherapy create the conditions in which meaningful change and personal development can take place.
