Paul Salvage Psychodynamic psychotherapist , BN1
I am an experienced Psychodynamic Psychotherapist registered with The United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy, (UKCP) and The Universities Psychotherapy and Counselling Association. (UPCA).
Clients seek help from me for many reasons, from feeling that life is literally unbearable to a vague sense of unease. Psychotherapy is not an academic exercise and often involves going into and experiencing powerful feelings with and sometimes in relation to your therapist. I will support and contain you in this process, working at a pace that is right for you. Different therapists work for different people you are welcome to meet with me to see if you think I would be a good therapist for you.
I work with a wide range of people and presentations including; anxiety and depression, unmanageable feelings; sadness, fear, anger,Loss or separation, Relationship issues, Identity, Sexual conflicts,Trauma. I operate an ethical and non-discriminatory practice.
My approach Is warm and humane. Through engagement in Psychotherapy I believe I can help you overcome painful and distressing thoughts, feelings and experiences. Psychotherapy like a good massage involves us working together to find the right mixture of nurture and stretch
I initially trained as an Integrative therapist with Mindfulness based approach and then went on to complete a Masters in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy at the University of Brighton. I am influenced by a wide range of approaches and ideas and have undergone intensive Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy and supervision.
