Psychotherapy-counselling-services-martin-oakley

 

I initially trained at Wealden Psychology College Institute in Crowborough, and qualified in integrative humanistic psychotherapy and counselling. The training course was accredited by the BACP (British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy), of which I am a fully accredited and registered member.

The psychotherapy and counselling styles, techniques and approaches that I am trained to provide include:

 

Psychotherapy: Transactional Analysis (TA) & Gestalt

Psychology: Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) & Development Attachment Theory

Counselling: Person-Centred Therapy

Alternative: Creative, Objects, Art, Sand Tray, Images, Writing, Metaphors

 

My experience enables me to professionally guide the sessions by using either a blend of therapies, or a specific way of working, whilst exploring your issues and/or difficulties.

I am Fully Registered as a Service Provider through HealthCode for the following Insurance Companies to provide therapy to their Clients or Organisations;  AXA PPP Healthcare, AVIVA Healthcare, VITALITY  Healthcare and AETNA healthcare
