who we are and what we do

 

The Bridge Therapy Counselling Partnership was formed with the ideal of upholding the integrity and values of the psychodynamic therapy process, as devised by Freud and further envisioned and developed by the likes of Winnicot and Bowlby. Careful adherence to the ethical framework of the British Association of Psychotherapists gives you space to take a postivie step towards insight and self-expression in a safe, confidential environment. Without giving advice or judging our clients, we provide guidance and promote clarity whether regarding current events or past experiences.

Mike Broadbent

My main focus is working with people who are on the transgender spectrum and are seeking to understand themselves and how they fit into society. I offer a non-judgemental space where these issues can be explored and a way found to acknowledge and accept this aspect of one’s personality and express it in a beneficial way.

how we work

We offer a once-weekly one-to-one psychodynamic counselling service.

The mainstay of this approach is self-reflection and self-examination, guided by us in a safe and confidential environment. Our therapy promotes increased self-awareness, allowing clients to understand the influence of the past on present behaviour and feelings. This enables the client to examine unresolved conflicts and the consequences that arise in their day to day lives which helps to overcome them, giving back more control in daily life.

This therapeutic approach is suited to those who want to work collaboratively and are open to being reflective and curious about themselves.

Our areas of interest and experience include: 

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Low self-esteem
  • Identity, including gender identity
  • Relationships and interpersonal problems
  • Bereavement and loss
  • Sexuality
  • Self harm
  • Adoption
  • Transgender concerns including cross-dressing and gender dysphoria
