Pritiva Attiken

BSc (Hons) Psych; Dip Therapeutic Counselling (Integrative); BUPA Therapist; Barnado's adoption and attachment therapist; MBACP accred

Therapeutic Counselling

My practice is grounded in the neuroscience of stress-regulation.  This is beneficial for those of us who suffer with anxiety, panic, depression, bereavement, adoption-related or attachment-related issues, issues within families or relationships, parenting difficulties, and trauma (either in childhood or adulthood).

My apprroach is Integrative, and is rooted in robust and established therapeutic models.  I offer clients the space to explore the burdens they carry, and to grow in assertiveness, awareness, self-compassion and self-worth.

I have been in practice since 2008 and am fully insured.  I hold enhanced DBS certification with Barnardo's adoption services; and I am GDPR compliant.

Robert Baker

Dip HE Therapeutic Counselling; GamCare approved; CRUSE trained; BACP regd.

Therapeutic Counselling

I am involved in counselling because I feel passionate about making a positive difference for people, believing that counselling can offer real hope when addressing problems that affect people.  I offer a non-judgemental approach when working with you and consider myself to be down to earth in my practice, believing that trust and understanding within the counselling relationship is the foundation for achieving positive change for you.

I am particularly interested in helping people who want to reach out when experiencing struggles in relationships and the work-place.  Together we can focus on coping skills and self-preservation leading to greater control in your life.  Confidence can then flourish.

I offer counselling for adults and older adults.

Catherine Speddings

BsC Counselling and Psychotherapy; MBACP accred; BA Nursing Studies

Counselling; Psychotherapy

I am a qualified psychotherapist and counsellor with a background of 25 years experience in nursing and midwifery.  My approach is Humanistic and Integrative, meaning that whilst my work is based on Humanistic principles I also integrate theories from other approaches, tailoring how I work with each client to suit them.  In addition to working in private practice, I have experience of working as a therapist within a GP setting and in a university counselling service, working with clients with issues such as stress management, anxiety, depression, bereavement, poor self-esteem and self-confidence, and abuse.

I believe that therapy can aid healing by providing a therapeutic relationship which is non-judgemental, authentic and based on trust.  I offer a safe space where I work with individuals on a short or long term basis to help them explore their feelings and gain a greater understanding about issues they may be facing.

I have an enhanced DBS certificate, am in regular supervision and abide by the ethical framework of the BACP and Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute.

Deborah Taylor

MNCS accred; Dip Integrative Counselling & Psychotherapy; BA(Hons) Nursing Studies

Counselling & Psychotherapy

I am a qualified Integrative counsellor and psychotherapist and accredited member of the National Counselling Society (NCS).

Although predominantly person centred in approach, I value difference and individuality and therefore may draw on a number of approaches to best fit the person or the presenting issue.  I strive to create conditions of trust, safety and honesty and a collaborative working relationship enabling clients to establish their goals.

I believe in an individual's potential and drive for positive change and in their own vast resources.  I support clients to feel empowered and begin to direct the change they seek.

Counselling can feel a big step and feel challenging but it can also help to enhance self-awareness, self-understanding and begin to create the possibility for different choices, or simply self-acceptance.  Client feedback and goals always guide the pace and direction of the work.

Alongside private practice I also currently work in a voluntary setting and have experience in university and college counselling services where collectively, issues have included bereavement, relationship difficulties, self-esteem, confidence and trust issues, anxiety, trauma and depression.

I adhere to the ethical guidelines of both NCS and BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and attend regular supervision and CPD.
