Kevin Legge, MSc, Dip, MUKCP, CTA, Individual and Couples Psychotherapist
I am an experienced Psychotherapist registered with the UK Council of Psychotherapists (UKCP) and Certified Transactional Analyst (CTA). I have completed an MSc in psychotherapy (with Distinction) at the Metanoia Institute London and have worked in a variety of settings including several years for Mind. I offer psychotherapy and coaching for individuals, couples, families and groups for a wide range of issues. I am DBS checked and practice within the UKCP ethical code for Psychotherapists.
I specialise in working with anxiety, depression, generalised anxiety disorder, panic attacks, phobias, overwhelming feelings (including; anger, sadness, fear, anxiety, worry, loneliness, emptiness and insecurity), low energy and motivation, low self-esteem, performance anxiety and issues (sports, exams, work etc.), intrusive or compulsive thoughts, trauma and post-traumatic stress, sleeping issues, issues relating to eating disorders (anorexia, bulimia) and weight control, body image and rejection issues, sexual problems, obsessive behaviours and OCD, addiction (smoking, gambling, alcohol), loss of a loved one and bereavement, and relationship difficulties for couples and families in order to resolve unhelpful patterns and cycles of conflict that are impacting the relationship as well as issues around trust, betrayal and separation and divorce.
Effective therapy can significantly improve physical as well as mental well-being and relationships, creating greater happiness and a brighter future. My approach is relational and based on the latest neuroscientific research for healing. This will involve providing respect, compassion and curiosity within a confidential, non judgemental safe space, as we work together to resolve the issues impacting your life and relationships. This can be short-term or long-term and by Video (Skype, Zoom or WhatsApp), Telephone or face to face.
