Patricia Terry - Senior Accredited Counsellor and Psychotherapist in Esher & Kingston upon Thames, Surrey
Hello and welcome.
I am a fully qualified counsellor and psychotherapist, accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and registered with the UKRC as an Independent Counsellor. I have practices in Esher and Kingston upon Thames, Surrey.
I specialise in counselling on relationship and personal development issues, with a particular focus on addressing the effects of abuse. My main practice areas include the following:
- My personal development work often centres on help with a problem situation, difficulty, crisis or frustration that is not being handled well, such as coping with change or dealing with missed opportunities and regrets. I support people who wish to lead a fuller life and want to build or rebuild self-esteem and confidence.
- I have deep experience of helping women who have suffered domestic violence and childhood abuse - emotional, physical and sexual. We work together to address the resulting emotions of fear, anxiety and anger, which can of course be confusingly intermingled during and after an abusive relationship. Psychotherapy can be particularly helpful in resolving this confusion and in addressing the long-term effects of abuse and domestic violence.
- Relationship problems may arise for many reasons: often they can spring from deep-rooted personal issues such as those mentioned above; on other occasions the stresses and strains of everyday life may be primary causes. I support couples and individuals as they work through the resultant complexities and conflicts.
At my Esher practice I counsel individuals and couples, and at my Kingston upon Thames practice I work exclusively with women. Esher is within easy reach of Claygate, Thames Ditton, Cobham, Walton-on-Thames and Weybridge, and my Kingston practice lies between Norbiton and Kingston main line stations. Surbiton, Richmond and Teddington are close by.
