Ben Selby Person-centred/humanistic psychotherapist , PL1

After achieving a 2:1 Honours degree in Psychology, I spent time enabling and empowering students within the Students Union movement before training in to become a Brief Therapist and working with people affected by drug and alcohol misuse and dependency issues.


I have since completed the various courses required to achieve a Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling and a Diploma in Psychotherapy. I have also undertaken many short courses including for example, Working with Trauma, Anger Management, Body Process, Psycho-sexual issues etc.


Over the past eleven years, my experience includes counselling individuals and couples across a spectrum of issues which include:


Anxiety, Depression, Anger, Stress (how this can impact the individual and their relationships), Sexuality , Identity, Relationship difficulties , Bereavement , Abuse, Self harm, Self-esteem, Feelings of isolation and loneliness, as well as many other issues and problems we seem to face in our lives from time to time.
