Neil Young

About Neil

I offer talking therapy as a space to explore where you are at – what is bringing you now, the impact of past experiences and the change you are hoping for, going forward. Therapy gives permission for us to talk about whatever we need to. It can also allow reconnection to hope, humour and passion. I have experience of working with a diverse range of clients - offering short- and long-term therapy.

My space

Further information

In the busy-ness of the modern world, psychotherapy offers the chance to bring about meaningful change in our lives. It is rare to have a confidential space - away from our lives, families and work - to explore difficult feelings and experiences.

As an integrative psychotherapist I draw on a number of key theories. I believe that we human beings strive to be well and that the relationship between client and therapist can be a key source for change (relational and humanistic theory). Early relationships, particularly in the family, are significant because they influence our subsequent expectations for, and ways of being in, relationships with others (psychodynamic and attachment theory).

I am also trained in work with the arts (art, clay, movement, music, poetry, puppetry, sand tray as well as dreams and metaphor), so this can be part of our work together if this is of interest to you.

I trained for five years at the Institute for Arts and Therapy in Education (IATE) – qualifications accredited by the University of East London:
-IATE (2018) MA Integrative Arts Psychotherapy
-IATE (2017) Diploma in Integrative Arts Psychotherapy
-IATE (2015): Postgraduate Certificate in the Therapeutic Arts
-Gestalt Centre (2009): Certificate in Humanistic Counselling Skills

I am accredited by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and follow their standards of proficiency. I am also a Registered Member of the UKCP, the British Association of Art Therapists (BAAT) and the Association for Counselling and Therapy Online (ACTO). I have regular supervision with a UKCP registered supervisor and am committed to ongoing professional development. I have also been in personal therapy for over ten years.
