My Approach

I would describe my approach as integrating ideas from different modalities. I am a Certified Transactional Analyst Psychotherapist and frequently work in this way. I am also accredited as a CBT Psychotherapist, and this approach can be very useful in the right context. I pay attention to what goes on in the therapeutic relationship, seeing the therapy room as a relational laboratory - so what goes on between therapist and client is often a clue of the relational events that take place out there in the world.

About Me

Hello. My name is Andy Williams and I practice both online (using Zoom or Telephone) although my preference is to work face-to-face or in the landscape of the outdoors. My therapy practice is The Horsforth Centre for Psychotherapy, LS18 5PX, which I own and share with a set of colleagues, all of whom offer a range of talking therapies. My philosophy is one of emancipation and freedom - I am interested in working with people, facilitating them to experience the world as fully and as freely as possible.

Good therapy for me is grown-up and adapted to the client's needs - especially their relational needs. I am deeply interested in my clients, their history and story, and how they see the world. I am interested in how we might carry our story, or indeed our trauma in our bodies and where these difficulties become manifest.

I greatly enjoy working with attention to power, difference, diversity, intersectionality and especially issues around privilege and oppression. My practice attracts adults from all sorts of backgrounds, of many different sexualities and gender identities. I am interested in meeting you, where you are at, and facilitating the changes that interest you.

The workplace seems to invite many difficulties for many of us - and much of my work focuses on helping the client to navigate and get through everyday life!

I love walking, the landscape and the outdoors. I take delight in ancient things - rock carvings, stone circles, castles as well as nature as a whole.

Special Interests

Like all UKCP registered psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors I can work with a wide range of issues, but here are some areas in which I have a special interest or additional experience.

Are you over-estimating the danger or difficulty, whilst under-estimating your ability to cope? Anxiety is present for many of us.
I offer an open, non-judgement, easily accessible space to get working on issues that are important to you.
The diversity of sexuality expression is important to me - and the freedom to be who you need to be.
As well as working with psychotherapy and the individual, I am a passionate clinical supervisor - working with others to develop their skills and practice.
The corporate environment is a deeply challenging one, and I am available to support your workplace journey.
