Moya Chase MBACP (Accred) UKCP
Psychotherapy, Therapeutic Counselling, Psychodynamic Supervision
I offer open-ended psychodynamic counselling and cognitive behavioural
therapy. Cognitive behavioural therapy offers clients skills to manage
problems but is less suitable for problems that have been there for
a long time.
My training is psychodynamic, which is a way of understanding ourselves and others by making links between the past and the present. Psychodynamic counselling is a therapeutic process that helps people understand and resolve their worries and problems through a process of exploration of thoughts, feelings, memories and dreams. It is based on the theories and practice of analytical psychology and psychoanalysis, and has a long and respected history going back to Freud and Jung. I also offer Cognitive Behaviour Therapy in time limited work. CBT offers clients skills to manage their problems but is less suitable for those who have had life-long difficulties.
The initial consultation is an opportunity for you to talk through
your difficulties and to explore your needs and expectations and whether
counselling is the best way forward. Sometimes other services may be
more appropriate, for instance people dependent on drugs or alcohol
may need referral to specialist help before coming into counselling
to work on their underlying issues.
