Do you struggle because of issues with anxiety, depression or an important relationship. Or maybe with how you express your anger, the impact long term stress is having on you, substance misuse, insomnia, or ADHD. Or perhaps you struggle with self-esteem issues or in pursuing what you want from life.
Whatever your reason, and however difficult things might seem right now, making the decision to work together could help bring about the change you want.
Tom Keely, BACP Counsellor & Psychotherapist, South Manchester.
I’ve always had more than a passing interest in well-being and mental health. Some years ago I chose to make this interest my profession when I left a corporate career to become a counsellor and psychotherapist. During my training, I was able to work with a broad number of approaches and observe which of them produced the best outcomes. I chose to specialise in ISTDP because I found it capable of producing lasting change, effective where past therapies may have failed and flexible enough to work with a wide range of presenting problems. And also because it encapsulates a way of understanding human nature which seeks to produce deep and lasting change.
My professional development is important as it ensures I offer the knowledge and skills needed to deliver a professional service to my clients. As a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) I have met the strict standards required to be on the accredited register approved by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care. I am also a member of IEDTA (International Experiential Dynamic Therapy Association) and have completed a comprehensive 3 year IEDTA Certified Core Training in Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy with the ISTDP UK Institute. In addition, I'm working towards the UK's Good Practice Guidelines for Teaching Mindfulness-Based Courses and teach mindfulness within clinical and workplace settings.
Many clients find my practice is supported by my knowledge of anxiety and my qualities as a mindfulness teacher. My practice is based in West Didsbury, Manchester.
Finally, and perhaps most importantly is my personal commitment to working honestly and respectfully with each of my clients.
