Aside from being incredibly privileged to hear the fascinating stories of peoples’ lives, it is really important to me that people realise that change is ALWAYS possible however difficult things seem to be.

I decided to train as a counselling psychologist as opposed to a different branch of psychology. Influential thinkers such as Carl Rogers were of the opinion that human beings should be seen in a “holistic manner, rather than as a collection of psychological parts” and this is fundamental to counselling psychology.

There are times when an experienced outsider who is perceptive, supportive and creative, can help to clarify your goals and find better ways of achieving them. Our psychology team has an outstanding record of providing quality service and achieving exceptionally good results. The Dynamic Change Consultant team recognise that your time and resources are important to you. Accordingly, our psychology services are based on modern, evidence-based and brief therapy, such as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT).

Therapy is tailored to your individual needs. We do not advocate a “one size fits all” approach to treatment and interventions. The approach used by DCC consulting psychologists is collaborative and solution-driven; you will at all times have a clear idea of how things are progressing. We work in a way that is creative, innovative and customised and aim to leave you motivated, energised and feeling better after the very first consultation.

We have provided psychological counselling for a multitude of issues including anxiety, depression, eating disorders, health problems, relationship issues, anger management, sleep disorders, low self-confidence, obsessive compulsive disorder, work related problems, sexual issues, loss and bereavement and phobias. Many people report a marked improvement within one to five sessions. Our team is equipped to provide you with a deeper understanding of your situation and the tools you need to recover and better cope with life challenges.

Our psychologists adhere to the highest ethical standards. Their experience and competence will provide you with a leading edge in dealing with your issues.
