Doug Teeling Integrative psychotherapist , BA2
Whether you have recently experienced a crisis in life, or have a more enduring sense of something feeling wrong, I offer a compassionate approach for you to begin to explore whatever issue brings you to therapy.
I am a qualified (UKCP accredited) psychotherapist, and believe firmly that in offering a compassionate, non-judgmental and safe environment each client can learn to trust their own experience and feelings. This provides a solid framework from which healing some of the deepest wounds experienced in life can begin to take place. As a humanistic practitioner I believe in the value and uniqueness of each individual and aim to work with you in finding a more fulfilling way of living. Whilst some clients may have a specific area they wish to work on in sessions, others find therapy a valuable space for working on themselves as part of their personal development.
I have a particular interest in how early relationships shape our experiences later in life. I also pursue research exploring how the changing environment affects our psychological well-being. In a time of accelerating climate change I believe it is essential to keep in mind the impact of the wider social, political and environmental challenges we are all necessarily affected by. Whilst we may not discuss this explicitly in sessions, I believe these issues will always be a part of how we find ourselves situated in life at any given time.
If you would like to find out more about coming to psychotherapy then please do get in touch. We can arrange an initial session which is an opportunity to get a feel for how we would work together and to ask any questions you may have. This session will last 50 minutes, and payment of £35 will need to be made by bank transfer prior to us meeting.
You can contact me by phone (07462 740143) or email ([email protected]).
