Mary Henderson Psychotherapist PsychD MNCS Accred
I specialise in a number of areas, assisting my clients to cope with many presenting issues. I work in NHS referral mental health service as well as running my own successful private practice as a Psychotherapeutic Counsellor.
I am an integrative therapist, this means I use a wide range of tools, and tailor therapy to individual needs of the individual client. My main focus is always to support my client to move beyond their symptoms and to provide coping strategies that are effective to help them move forward. I use mindfulness techniques with the clients permission and this helps the client find a peaceful and safe mental place to help them if they need. Many of my clients present a very wide range of concerns that impact heir day-to-day life and I specialise in many areas to support many past or present events in their lives.
I understand on a personal level the loneliness a serious illness can bring, which can and often does cause many difficulties through fear, numbness, anxiety, trauma and PTSD.
My belief is that each person is an individual with personal individual needs and my unique approach and skill sets accommodate this.
My goal is to exclusively focus on my clients and treat with respect.
It should be noted like all therapy it is a two way relationship and commitment is needed from both sides to make effective progress, working through trauma can be a difficult experience but with a very rewarding outcome.
