Stephanie Groves Psychotherapist in Wells, Glastonbury, and the surrounding area in Somerset.
"If you want to change the world, first change yourself."
I am a generic psychotherapist and counsellor based in Godney, near to Wells and Glastonbury and surrounding area.
I don't divide people into issues or problems and I am deeply interested in how we all find creative ways of living our lives, whatever our experience.
Research shows how psychotherapy provides long lasting relief from the kinds of deep distress that aren't helped by quick-fix types of treatment, because it actually creates permanent, profound changes in the way we think, feel and behave.
Psychotherapy really can change your life and your relationships with others. It can alleviate long term emotional pain and improve how we manage our lives.
I have more than 25 years experience of working in the NHS, Higher Education and private practice. I see young people, adults and couples. Common issues which people bring include loss, bereavement, abuse, depression, adoption, gender and sexuality, relationship issues, eating disorders, self harm, physical illness, mental health, childhood trauma and attachment disorders. When you begin your therapy we will start by discussing your needs and looking at how we can achieve your aims.
There are a wide variety of training schemes and courses for psychotherapists and counsellors available now, and consequently a range of styles and disciplines. My training at BCPC in Bath, lasted more than five years, plus two more to complete an academic thesis. Many courses don’t insist on their students being in long term therapy or counselling; sometimes only six or eight sessions are stipulated.
I feel it is crucially important for all training therapists to be in long term psychotherapy throughout their training, and at BCPC it is a requirement to be in once, or sometimes twice or three times weekly psychotherapy. This has added immeasurably to my understanding of the work, and of course, I have experience of being a client .
I have worked long term with a number of psychotherapists and counsellors in training.
