Welcome to my website, my name is Bridget Walker and I am a fully insured, UKCP Registered Psychotherapist, Trainer and Clinical Supervisor. I am also a registered Mental Health Nurse.
My interest in mental health stems from a background in Psychiatry, Education and the Arts. I have a strong belief in the potential for emotional, physical and spiritual health in every individual. I am passionate about the place the arts and imagination have in promoting change and releasing potential within the individual and the community.
Apart from immediate crises such as relationship breakdown, redundancy and bereavement, many of us find a time in our lives when we need to explore our life direction in a confidential environment. Psychotherapy meets this need and can be useful both in times of crisis, to address issues from the past and as a forum for personal curiosity and development.
For all of us, issues not sufficiently dealt with over time can continue to impact on everyday life culminating in destructive relationship patterns, depressive or disturbing episodes or recurrent negative thinking. I believe that if we can understand and manage these issues successfully we can live to our greatest potential and be more fully who we are in relationship with others, ourselves and in groups and communities. Fundamentally I am interested in exploring how we can express the remarkable stories of our lives and what it means for us to be human.
I work with adults in individual and group settings from therapy rooms in Marlborough and Newbury.
I am happy to discuss my style of working and ways in which we might be able to think about your specific needs and I look forward to meeting you.
