About

Rozie Pilkington

I am a qualified Counsellor, Psychologist, and Art Psychotherapist; Registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC), am a Member of the British Psychological Society (BPS) and the British Association of Art Therapists (BAAT). I have worked with a number of organisations including fostering and adoption services, women's organisations, diet clinics, children's hospices, and adult psychiatric hospitals, both NHS and private.

 

I have over fifteen years of experience in mental health practice and wellbeing. I am Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checked and to date, fully insured and abide by several Codes of Ethics and attend regular supervision. I frequently attend medical conferences and congresses, both in Europe and in the USA, to keep up-to-date with the latest research and developments in mental health, along with new discoveries that can aid the process of recovery.

My approach to therapy work is Relational Integrative Psychodynamic. Integration can be defined as a process of bringing parts together into a whole. Therefore, an integrative approach in psychology is a type of therapy in which the affective, cognitive, behavioural, social, physical, and holistic aspects of individuals are taken into consideration during the treatment. In therapy, integration also refers to the client and theoretical integration (Erskine, 2015).

 

Adding the relational aspect defines the approach as being also mindful of my relationship with my clients, and using opportunities to support them while forming and sustaining value, across a spectrum of support. My therapy services provide a safe and confidential space for you to evaluate and to better understand yourself through the process of exploration, enabling a deeper self-awareness and understanding of others and of the world around you. This mechanism can strengthen your abilities to work through life's challenges and enhance your wellbeing.

My areas of specialty include children, adolescents, and adults that have been affected by psychopathologies/ mental disturbances including, Anxiety and Depression; Bipolar; Low Self-Esteem; Stress Management; Eating Disorders; Self-harm; Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder; Relationship issues; Terminal Illnesses; Grief and Loss. I also work individually with adopted parents and their new children.
