Stephen Bradley BSc(Hon), MSc, MPsychPsych, MTSP MBPF MACP MBPC
I am an Adult Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist and also work as a Consultant Child Psychotherapist, providing individual psychoanalytic psychotherapy to adults, young people, and children.
I am professionally registered with the British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC), the Association of Child Psychotherapists (ACP), The British Psychotherapy Foundation (BPF) and the Tavistock Society of Psychotherapists (TSP).
Most people during their lives will experience times when they are worried, depressed, anxious or upset. Psycho-Analytic Psychotherapy can provide the necessary space and support to help you. Addressing these issues can lead to positive change and increased well being.
I also work with children and young people, who experience difficulties and have over 30 years of experience working in the NHS with Children and Adolescents. I provide work with parents who would like a consultation regarding the concerns they have about their child and I can also undertake work with mother and child to strengthen their attachments.
I provide short, medium and long term psychoanalytical psychotherapy which could help you. I am based in Whitstable, Kent. An initial consultation will explore whether psychotherapy can help you.
Any contact is treated with utmost confidentiality.
