I consider myself an integrative transactional analyst psychotherapist. This means that I develop my approach to psychotherapy to meet the needs each person I am sitting with as I believe everyone is unique. My psychotherapy training in Transactional Analysis was robust. I trained as a Transactional Analyst psychotherapist (Certified Transactional Analyst in Psychotherapy)) and originally as a humanistic counsellor. I use a range of skills in my approach in the service of the person I am working with.
A warm welcome to you. My name is Mandy Atkinson and I am a I am BACP accredited counsellor, a Certified Transactional Analyst and UKCP Registered Psychotherapist, based in South Walsham in Norfolk. My face-to-face practice is easy to reach from Acle, North Walsham, Blofield, Wroxham, Stalham, Hemsby, and Norwich. I also provide online psychotherapy using the medium of Zoom.
I offer the time and space within our therapeutic relationship for you to be listened to and understood. Somewhere where you can make sense of how you are thinking and feeling. I specialise in working with trauma, abuse, bereavement, anxiety and depression. In addition I have specialist experience in working with eating disorders and weight related issues such as anorexia nervosa, binge eating, obesity and anorexia bulimia. I enjoy working with individuals of all ages, couples, families and groups I enjoy working with people for both short term and longer term therapy.
I am an experienced psychotherapist, clinical supervisor, teacher and professional trainer.
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.
