Mary Ames Reg MBACP (Accredited)
People sometimes find themselves overwhelmed with difficult feelings and it is hard to find a way through. This may be due to a complex, difficult relationship, a significant loss or a repeating pattern of behaviour which you are unhappy about - or other factors.
Sometimes present day distress can have links with earlier times. Psychodynamic therapy can offer the opportunity to explore and work through these issues with the therapist.
I work in a private practice in a quiet, confidential and professional environment. I have experience of working with clients with a range of issues including depression, loss, anxiety, problems with anger, relationship difficulties and low self esteem. Other areas I have worked with are listed below.
I am a Registered and Accredited member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists and I ascribe to their Ethical Framework.
