My name is Dylan and I am a Chartered Clinical Psychologist specialising in adult psychotherapy.
I have 14 years experience in private practice, working with people who suffer from anxiety, depression, bereavement and loss, stress, trauma, disconnection, and relationship difficulties.
I offer a friendly and down-to-earth approach to therapy, providing a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space to talk. With training and experience in the main evidence-based psychotherapies, I work flexibly and collaboratively, tailoring therapy to the needs of each person I see.
While therapies that focus on changing thoughts and behaviour can be helpful, there is a growing emphasis in psychotherapy research on the importance of working with emotion. You may have had an experience where you felt as if you had a good intellectual understanding of a problem yet it was still difficult to change; intellectual insight is not the same as emotional insight. Focusing on emotions in therapy, we would work together to put feelings into words, bringing clarity to emotions that are threatening, confusing or contradictory. A space to explore emotions can help you to better recognise problematic patterns in relationships, uncover meaning, and importantly, enable you to discover options that had not been clear before.
