Professional background and experience

I’m a counsellor and EMDR therapist. I have worked for Relate, in GP surgeries for IAPT and the NHS and am now in private practice as well as continuing some digital work for Relate.

Our relationships past and present affect the quality of our lived experiences, and my approach is to support you in looking at that. Sometimes it is enough to make some shifts in what is happening in the here and now, while at other times it is more helpful to look at how our past experiences are affecting our present so that we can activate our body’s ability for natural healing.

I offer a thorough assessment and will discuss with you which approach will be most helpful as well as which you feel most comfortable with.

What to expect from our Therapists

We carry out rigorous checks and vet all our therapists before they join the team. They must meet with our high standards of professional specification which includes:

This means that the mental health professional you see will be qualified, experienced and competent.

We are a private mental health clinic and have a number of therapists with different specialities. Because of this, we can offer therapies to help with a wide range of mental health issues from Anxiety to PTSD and child psychology.

First, we carry out a triage step during a 15-minute free initial telephone consultation. Depending on the challenges you’re facing, we will then recommend a counsellor, CBT therapist or clinical psychologist.

We also have clinic locations throughout the North, so there is usually one not too far from you.

As a result, we can usually offer an appointment quickly and at a time and place convenient for you. But, above all, tailored to your needs.

Please note, not all of our therapists work from all our clinic locations. Contact us for information on which therapists it is possible to see at which locations.

As well as Armele Philpotts we have a number of other Clinical Psychologists, CBT Therapists and Counsellors in our team.
