Psychoanalysis and Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy are exploratory psychotherapies ideal for those interested not only in symptom reduction but who also want to better understand their emotions and relationships, discover deeper aspects of themselves, and open up new more creative and fulfilling ways of being and living.
Dr Joseph Dodds is a Psychoanalyst and Training Analyst with the Czech Psychoanalytical Society (International Psychoanalytical Association) and the College of Psychoanalysts UK, a Chartered Psychologist (CPsychol) and Associate Fellow (AFBPsS) of the British Psychological Society, a Chartered Scientist (CSci) with the Science Council UK, a Clinical Fellow of the International Neuropsychoanalysis Society, and a Registered Clinical Psychotherapist with the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP), and the Czech Association for Psychotherapy. Dr Dodds has over two decades of experience working with a wide range of psychological problems such as depression, stress, anxiety, eating disorders, phobias, relationship issues, obsessive compulsive disorder, trauma, personality disorders, feelings of inner emptiness, life dissatisfaction, and just plain unhappiness. Psychological problems are more common than many people think and seeking help is not a sign of weakness, but the first step towards recovery and growth.
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.
