Nicholas Wolstenholme BSc, M A, UKCP (Accred)
People come to psychotherapy and counselling for many different reasons. Perhaps it is a time of crisis or difficulty when feelings have become overwhelming and difficult to share with people that you might normally. It could be that this is linked to a desire to gain a deeper self-understanding. Simply talking to the right therapist for you can provide initial relief.
I am UKCP accredited counsellor and psychotherapist and have a wide experience of working with different conditions and situations, in particular working with shame, anxiety and relationship issues.
I work with an emphasis on facilitating your enquiry in a way that is safe and effective, within a supportive relationship. This can be through exploring feelings, thoughts, dreams, bodily sensations, relationships, whatever feels right for you. The work combines mindfulness with other western psychotherapeutic models to gently create an empathic relationship in which your enquiry can be held, in order to meet the aims and needs you bring. It is not necessarily about regression to the past but more about deepening into your present experience, bringing awareness to all that we are, including the positive and light with the more painful and inhibiting patterns, in unconditional acceptance.
