Cressida Stevens

Psychodynamic Counsellor

I am a psychodynamic counsellor offering both short term counselling, or in-depth, longer term therapy for a wide range of emotional issues including anxiety, depression, relationship problems and trauma. I work with adults of all ages, cultural backgrounds, genders and sexual orientations.

I provide long and short term weekly individual psychodynamic counselling. I place great importance on establishing a safe and non-judgemental counselling relationship, allowing clients to talk freely and openly about their feelings and difficulties.

One focus of the work together is how past experiences may continue to affect the ways that we think and behave and so help a client to consider how this could have an impact on their well-being. Through a process of open discussion, I aim to identify current patterns of behaviour or thoughts that may be linked to earlier experiences and attachments. This can help clients to consider how these factors might influence their daily life and relationships.

I work with clients to help address these challenges within a framework where the aim is not only to feel supported in resolving difficulties, but also to gain a better understanding that can maintain future well-being.

I offer sessions in person, by Zoom or telephone.

I am BACP accredited with an MSc in Psychodynamic Counselling.  I have 20 years’ experience working with people from all walks of life having worked in GP Surgeries, universities, community centres and charities. I am also a supervisor.
