Phillip Birch

BACP

Psychotherapist

I am a psychodynamic counsellor and psychotherapist offering long-term (open-ended) psychotherapy, or short-term psychotherapy with a focus (Dynamic Interpersonal Therapy). The latter is one of the therapies recommended for depression in the NHS as an alternative to CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) or antidepressants. I have worked in the NHS and in private practice for 8 years. I am an accredited member of the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists.

I have particular interest in working with people who suffer from depression, anxiety, have relationship issues or self-destructive habits, concerns about their gender or sexuality or body image, an abusive past or traumatic experiences, difficulties within their family, bereavement, or a general feeling of unhappiness about themselves and their lives that might be difficult to pinpoint.

I work according to the ethical guidelines laid out in the BACP.
 

ABOUT THE THERAPY

Psychodynamic psychotherapy is a form of talking therapy where I would work with you to help you understand your unconscious mind (the feelings, ideas and actions that might be troubling you which you don't understand) and how you feel and behave in relationships, which may be connected to your experiences in early childhood as well as those throughout life.
