About Bruce:

I completed my existential and phenomenological informed training in psychoanalysis with the Philadelphia Association in London (UKCP approved training-Psychoanalytic and Jungian Analysis section of UKCP). The Philadelphia Association was founded by the radical psychiatrist R.D. Laing and others in 1965. I am also a trained experimental psychologist (University of Southampton, PhD) and I conducted research into the cognitive model of depression (the theoretical model which informs cognitive behavioural therapy; CBT) and the cognitive effects of SSRI antidepressants. I am a member and on the board of governors of the College of Psychoanalysts-UK (2010-present), and a member of the Philadelphia Association. I am a contributing author to ‘R.D. Laing: 50 Years since the Divided Self’, Edited by Theodor Itten and Courtenay Young, and the author of “Testimony of Experience: Docta Ignorantia and the Philadelphia Association communities, both published by PCCS Books Ltd.


SUSAN SCARTH

Email Counsellor

Specialisms:

  • Trauma
  • Unexplained Physical Symptoms
  • Mental Health

About Susan:

Following 14 years working in the community as a development worker, social worker, and lastly a psychiatric nursing assistant, I trained as a Dance Movement Therapist (Laban Centre London). I pursued my special interest in mental health; consolidating this with a final thesis study in group work with women surviving domestic violence and abuse. My focus is to integrate body and mind, bringing both the sensing and thinking body into the therapeutic space. CPD studies include an in-depth training in Movement Observation and Analysis (LIMS NY) and Level 1 of Sensorimotor Psychotherapy (SPI). These extra trainings have brought a deeper understanding of the neuropsychology of trauma and safe and effective practices for sustained health and wellbeing. My psychotherapy practice integrates a creative, body-based, person centered and psychodynamic model. I work with adults, children and young people of all abilities.

About Alexander:

My aim as a therapist is to offer an open, creative space for people to explore themselves and their situation. My training integrated psychodynamic and person-centred approaches, and I have worked with both adults and children in a variety of ways. I always try to make the counselling process collaborative and hope to offer my clients an opportunity to find a new way of deepening their own understanding of their lives, in a safe space where I can honestly and openly reflect on my experience of being with them.


Fiona Harvey

(Mobile) 07740988596 or 07512 649034

Based in: Livingston

Availability: Wednesday and Thursday
Average response time: within 24 hours

Email Counsellor

Specialisms:

  • Bereavement
  • Relationship Breakdowns
  • Low Self-esteem and Bullying
  • Anxiety and Depression

About Fiona:

I use an integrative model in my work, generally as a dialogue between person centred and psychodynamic approaches, but occasionally use elements of CBT. My preference for the use of the integrative model stems from my belief in the uniqueness of each individual and therefore there is no one approach that will suit every person. My work is very much client focused, building up a relationship with the client to engage their trust and then using the appropriate tools for their specific situation. I find that the use of psychodynamic therapy is a deeper work but enables the client to examine elements of their childhood where there was trauma or disruption.
