Ceri Summers

Mental Health Practitioner

I am an experienced and passionate psychodynamic counselling therapist registered with The National Counselling Society (NCS) and while my work is largely psychodynamically informed and supervised, if needed and more suitable, I am able to be guided by other counselling principals, including CBT techniques, solution focused techniques, ACT techniques and behavioural activation (which is a NICE recommended intervention for depression).

My work varies client to client, I offer short and longer term psychotherapies to adults on an individual basis, who may be suffering with a range difficulties/ presentations including depression, anxiety, anger, low self-esteem, adverse childhood experiences, relational difficulties past and present, work related issues, substance abuse, as well as other problems and challenges.

More than 10 years of working in primary care mental health services has refined my ability at assessing individual needs and deciding collaboratively how we can best work to meet your needs and goals.

My therapeutic area of interest is working with unconscious processes in individuals, teams, groups and the concepts underpinning the psychoanalytic approach, my private work is supervised and I attend CPD events, the most recent being Understanding the Politics of Emotions in the Workplace.
