Gestalt Therapist: Edda Johnson

About me

I am a Gestalt Psychotherapist, with full UKCP registration, offering affordable psychotherapy and counselling for individual adults on a short or long term basis.EDDA-NEW-PHOTO August 2023

I have undertaken a rigorous training at Welsh Psychotherapy Institute (WPI), over many years to provide me with a robust grounding to support clients facing a wide range of life challenges.

Gestalt means ‘whole’ and Gestalt Therapy is a dynamic approach that works with the whole person. As a relational therapist I pay attention to the relationship as it develops with a client, bringing awareness to what is happening in the present moment. This creates the potential for shifting patterns that are no longer helpful. I include bringing awareness to body sensations and experiences to support this work.

Experience

I have worked in the voluntary sector for over 30 years in a wide range of health and social care settings, including social housing, regeneration projects and for 11 years I managed a charity offering a wide range of bereavement services.

Fees

My fee is £45.00 for a 50 minute session, either face to face or on Zoom. I do have some concessionary rates available, please ask, so that finances don’t get in the way of you seeking the support you need.

First step

I offer a free 30 minute introductory session, via Zoom, to explore how we might work together and if we are a good fit. If you would like to contact me please email eddajohnsontherapy@gmail.com . I aim to respond to enquires within 24 hours.

Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapy: Doug Teeling

About me

I believe firmly that in offering a compassionate, non-judgmental and safe environment each client can learn to trust their own experience and feelings. Beginning to talk about yourself and what you are dealing with may feel new or even unnerving, so I am always mindful to work with you at your own pace.

In the process of therapy many different issues may come up for you. There is no pressure to work to a schedule or through any set list. In talking together we have an opportunity to explore, reflect upon and understand more fully how and why you feel the way you do.

Whether you have been through something traumatic in the past or recently experienced some crisis in your life, or perhaps are dealing with a more prolonged sense of disillusionment with life, the space provided by therapy allows us to work through these issues together.

I have a particular interest in how early relationships shape our experiences later in life. Whilst I work in an integrative way and draw upon many theories, I find psychodynamic and relational approaches in particular offer great insight into how our past can live on in the present. 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 meet for an initial session then please do get in touch.

Please note that during the ongoing situation regarding the Covid pandemic, I will be offering psychotherapy sessions online. I also have some availability for in person work. Please ask for more details.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am an accredited psychotherapist with UKCP having completed an MA in Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapy at BCPC (Bath Centre for Psychotherapy and Counselling). This course involves an intensive and in-depth approach to study over many years.

Alongside my private practice which has been running since 2013, I have also worked for the SWAN project in Bristol, one of the few places in the Bath and Bristol area which offers the opportunity for longer term low cost therapy.

My professional background is in mental health, having worked for nearly a decade supporting individuals dealing with enduring mental health issues. My previous training includes a Foundation Certificate in Counselling and Psychotherapy at BCPC, a Certificate in Counselling Skills at Bath College, as well as a degree in Psychology and Study of Religions at Bath Spa University.

I am also an active member of the Climate Psychology Alliance (http://www.climatepsychologyalliance.org/)

Fees

  • £75 per week. (A number of lower fee places are available).
  • £35 for initial session.

First steps

If you would like to find out more about coming to psychotherapy then I welcome you to 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.

After this meeting you may decide if you would like to book further sessions, which would usually be on a weekly basis.

Outdoor Sessions

I will be offering a limited number of outdoor sessions from Spring 2023. Working outdoors can feel very different to indoor psychotherapy, and so we would first meet for an initial session indoors to explore together whether taking sessions outside feels appropriate. Sessions will be located in the countryside around Bath, would last 60 minutes and there would be a weekly fee of £80. If this is something you feel you would be interested in then please do let me know.

Counsellor and Psychotherapist: Alex Moate

Alex Moate is an experienced Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist, who is accredited with the BACP.

Counselling can provide you with much needed clarity when life seems full up, with no room left to think. I provide a non-judgemental, safe and confidential space to explore issues that you are facing, to look more closely at the impact that these are having in your life and to begin to gain new perspectives. As an integrative practitioner I am able to work flexibly with you, with my work being informed by different approaches including Gestalt, Person-centred, Psychodynamic and CBT. This means that I am able to work in a way that will best suit your individual needs.

Issues I work with include lack of self-confidence, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, bereavement and loss, sexuality, gender and identity issues and traumatic events.

If you are having problems with low mood, social anxiety, worry, OCD or more generalised anxiety I also have specialist knowledge in working with adults and young people using low-intensity CBT. This can provide you, or your child, with the skills to challenge more negative ways of thinking and move forward with your goals.

Experience

I have worked within the NHS counselling members of staff, as a Counsellor and Low-intensity CBT therapist at Off the Record and most recently as a Counsellor at a Sixth Form College in Bristol. I have also worked in private practice for over 8 years as a Life Coach with adults and young people.

I received my Post Graduate Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy from the University of South Wales and also have a Post Graduate Certificate in Psychological Therapies Practice for Children, Young People and Families from the University of Exeter. I am a registered member of the BACP and adhere to their code of conduct.

Fees

Sessions last for 50 minutes and cost £60. I also offer an initial consultation at a reduced cost of £40, which is a great time to see if counselling is for you and whether I work in a style that suits you

Please feel free to ring or email me for a chat and to ask any questions that you might have before booking an initial consultation.
