Christine Wells- Psychotherapist BA, PGCE, MSc, MBACP, IAP.
‘You cannot see yourself on your own’ and it is the working together as client and therapist that can enable change.
As an integrative psychotherapist, I may employ psychodynamic, existential and sometimes person-centred approaches, tailoring the sessions for each individual client. However, strong evidence suggests the therapeutic relationship is the most important cog in the counselling wheel whatever the model. Each individual story is witnessed respectfully in a non-judgemental and empathetic context. Trust may be fostered; the client empowered to make their own choices, or to see alternative ways of understanding deep-rooted issues. The client needs to feel heard and offered a safe place where they can speak, in order to shift past patterns.
Christine is an experienced psychotherapist and counsellor who has specialised for many years in working with adolescents and young people as a school and college counsellor. She also has an interest in working with the elderly where she has set up counselling services locally. Currently, she practises at Holistic Health, alongside her practices in West Byfleet and Wimbledon; she also counsels at an affordable counselling agency and in a sixth form college. She is on an Advanced Practitioner programme in Psychotherapy & Counselling. She has specialised in working with issues of identity, self-harm, abuse and destructive patterns; integrating phototherapy which may access the client’s inner world more immediately than words.
