Ros Howell

Psychodynamic Psychotherapeutic Counsellor

I offer open-ended and short-term one to one psychodynamic therapy that pays attention to the patterns that may have developed in your relationship with yourself, with others and with the outside world. A period of difficulty or stress may bring you to therapy but as we talk you may find this resonates with other experiences you have had in your life.

I trained as a psychodynamic psychotherapeutic counsellor at Brighton University and Goldsmiths, University of London as a Movement Psychotherapist. I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), the Universities Psychotherapy and Counselling Association (UPCA) and the Association of Dance Movement Psychotherapy (ADMP).

I have a warm and empathetic style and believe that one of the most important and informative parts of therapy is the relationship we develop between us. Therapy has the potential to be a pleasurable experience even if we are talking about difficult or painful things and can often become a rewarding and fulfilling part of one's life.

I previously practised Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) which was designed to support people who can experience emotional dysregulation and challenges in their relationships and sense of self. I also have experience in working with neurodiversity, differing experiences of sexuality and working with people with a personality disorder diagnosis. I have also worked with mothers and their young children, and refugees and asylum seekers.
