Linda Clark, MBACP (accred)
As a fully qualified, experienced and accredited counsellor and psychotherapist, I work with a wide range of people experiencing difficulties in their lives. As well as private practice, I have worked in the NHS, community counselling and education. I offer short-term time-limited or more open-ended psychodynamic therapy depending on what is required.
Feelings of shame or guilt, anxiety, depression, relationship breakdown or family issues, affect most of us at some point to a greater or lesser degree. You may be feeling stuck and unable to make the changes that might improve things. You may not know what the real problem is, but just know you are unhappy with how you feel or behave. You may have been told that you have depression or generalised anxiety disorder and not really know what that means for you. It can be beneficial to have someone to think with, to help you identify issues and understand what is really going on
Understanding thoughts and patterns of behaviour in the context of past events or relationships, can help us to reflect helpfully on difficult feelings and the challenges we experience. This can offer relief from symptoms, physical as well as psychological. Having experienced the benefits of the therapeutic relationship in my own therapy, I offer a reflective space aimed at mobilising internal resources, improving relationships and facilitating acceptance and/or change.
I am happy to arrange a free initial telephone consultation to discuss your needs and expectations of the process.
I hold an MSc in Psychodynamic Counselling and Organisational Dynamics
Training, qualifications & experience
As an accredited member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) I adhere to their ethical framework and guidelines for professional practice. This includes ensuring confidentiality and working respectfully.
I hold an MSc in Psychodynamic Counselling & Organisational Dynamics. I have extensive counselling experience working with clients who present with a diverse range of issues, including depression and anxiety, stress, relationship issues and other mental health issues. The organisational component of my training can be helpful in terms of thinking about work or family issues. I have past experience in a community counselling service, university counselling, and in GP surgeries.
To ensure I can help clients in the best way possible I undertake regular supervision of my work with an experienced practitioner, and participate in various training courses to ensure my continuing professional development and enhance my practice.
