Graham Mummery Dip Psych, MUKCP
I am a UKCP registered psychotherapist. My training is from an integrative and humanistic perspectives which gives me a broad range of ways we can work together. Issues I can help you with include those in the list below.
Maybe you wonder how therapy with me would be. Maybe you feel stuck in your current life situation, or have suffered some mental illness. Either way, I look at therapy as an exploration into finding a better life. Hopefully there is some fun in it, as well as the difficulties!
After an initial assessment, I will concentrate on getting to know you and hearing your story. This creates a space of safety and trust to work on the issues being presented. People say I'm an outstanding listener. At this point it often involves saying things that, maybe, you've been unable to say before. After 8 weeks, I schedule in a review to ensure we wish to continue. This may only take a few moments, or maybe we discuss things more. In longer-term therapy I schedule in reviews so we can see where we are.
As things develop (or if a client is wanting this) I may start introducing other methods than just talking things through. I draw on a large number of tools from many traditions. These include bodywork, EFT, Gestalt, roleplay, and creative imagination techniques such as Imagework, family constellations and Jungian active imagination to allow for a deeper exploration of the issues initially presented. Sometimes this also involves artwork and some writing of short pieces.
All this sometimes might seem daunting. But there is also can be much wonder as new exciting possibilities emerge.
I look forward to meeting you and discovering these. Do contact me if you have any further questions. I offer a free 30 minute telephone consultation to discuss things.
