Dee CritophPsychodynamic psychotherapist
Hello, my name is Dee Critoph and I am an experienced and registered Psychotherapist and Counsellor helping people with a range of challenges, including Anxiety, Depression, Trauma, Shame & Guilt and Harmful & Destructive behaviour.
I understand how life can come to feel too much at times and talking to those close to you can sometimes prove difficult, leaving you feeling anxious and alone. At times like these you may start to think about seeking help. I provide a safe, confidential, professional and non-judgemental service; ensuring a comfortable place to talk, to feel heard, to explore and make sense of anything that may be troubling you.

I offer individual counselling and psychotherapy on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period, depending on what seems most advisable.
Working together, we can explore ongoing patterns of behaving and relating to others. You will have the freedom to explore and reflect on every aspect of your life, from some of your earlier life relationships and experiences to what is going on currently in your adult life. Understanding the link between past and present can be very helpful in bringing about new insight and change.
What happens in the first session?
Initially, we would have an introductory session which will give you an idea of what it is like to sit with a therapist. It carries no obligation to commit, deciding the best therapy for you will require some thought and the first meeting will help us with that.
Ongoing sessions last for 50 minutes and are usually held at the same time and day, for a minimum of once per week.

Training and qualifications
After a career in social care, I went on to train as a Psychodynamic Psychotherapist at the Manor House Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy, in London. I completed a rigorous British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC) and British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) accredited training, gaining experience through seminars and clinical practice.
I have undertaken COFRA 121 - StopSo training for the prevention of sexual offending; a therapeutic rehabilitation programme to help people manage sexual risk and to live more pro-social, satisfying lives.
Additionally, I have completed a two-year-long Infant Observation at the British Psychotherapy Foundation and a Psychiatric Placement.
I continue to embark on professional development, including training at the Tavistock & Portman, looking at psychoanalytic ideas on violence, delinquency and sexual deviation.
I am a registered member of the BPC and the BACP; working to their code of ethics.
