Therapists

Mandy Reddington MBACP

I’m a fully qualified, MBACP Acc, psychotherapeutic counsellor, running my private psychotherapy and counselling practice.

I offer individual limited and long-term psychotherapy and counselling to adults, couples and young people. I also offer group therapy too.

I work primarily using Transactional Analysis (TA), this is a powerful and effective therapeutic approach, which is widely used by psychotherapists and counsellors to resolve areas within your life where you may be experiencing difficulties

Besides offering private therapy I also counsel young people at a technical college. I have previously worked in multi professional settings including voluntary and private sector. I have specialised in group work for postnatal women and weight management group work for the NHS. Also I’ve worked in industry and understand & have experienced the ever changing demands employees have to deal with within their working environments.

Adolescents: going through adolescence can be a very difficult time to some, a period of great change and adjustment, and this can often seem overwhelming. I work with young people from differing backgrounds, cultures and faiths on issues which include anxiety, perfectionism, self-worth, expectation, procrastination, adjustment to life away from home, special educational needs, family issues, bullying, sexuality, eating disorders, self-harm, abuse and suicidal thoughts.
