Mandy Gosling M.A.(Psych), Dip. Psych. UKCP BACP - Individuals and Couples
Hello, I am Mandy, a fully qualified and registered Integrative Psychotherapist and Counsellor working with individuals and couples. I offer a safe place to talk through and explore different options, helping you to move forward. This space allows you to gain clarity of your situation so you can work towards making the changes you would like to, and give you peace of mind.
How Psychotherapy Can Help
Life today is often busy, and it can be difficult to take time to have a greater understanding of what is happening. Challenging life situations, anxiety, relationship issues, depression, self-esteem issues, losing someone we love or generally feeling sad can take its toll. By exploring and understanding feelings, beliefs, thoughts and behaviours, as well as identifying your strengths and resources, psychotherapy can assist you to gain insight and awareness into the difficulties that are currently being experienced. Psychotherapy can unlock your potential, help you understand who you truly are, and assist you to bring about change to make significant and lasting improvement.
How I Work
I work from the heart and often with humour, which has a great capacity to heal. As an Integrative therapist, I draw upon several modalities, including Psychodynamic (early life experiences and development), Humanistic (person centred and self-actualisation), Existential (the human condition with aspirations and limitations) and the Transpersonal (focusing on growth and potential). This allows me to tailor each session to your individual requirements and support you to improve your wellbeing.
I work narratively and sometimes creatively through dreams, bodywork or art, as this can be an influential means of guidance and transformation.
As research consistently shows, the most important part of any therapy is the relationship with the therapist. Each session is as unique and individual as my client, and how I work is determined by what is presented, and the desired outcome. There is a period of getting to know each other where there is an initial assessment and we discuss what you would like to get out of the sessions. Generally, we will discuss your background, where you are now and where you would like to be. You may choose to work short or long term and we can discuss this at the assessment.
I am a researcher and therapist for adults who have experienced early life bereavement and lead @abcgrief to facilitate understanding of the long term implications in this area. I work with individuals and couples who have experienced loss in early life and who struggle with relationships, self esteem, anxiety, feeling alone/stuck, historical grief and trauma responses. I run workshops/retreats periodically that further facilitate the healing process.
Call to talk through anything not covered here, and answer any questions you may have.
