Muriel Walshe

I am a psychoanalytical psychotherapist and have many years experience of working in private practice and within the NHS. I am trained in long-term psychotherapy.

Some of the reasons people come to see me are to get help with anxiety; depression; emotional difficulties brought on by troublesome relationships; family issues; work stress; bereavements; or concerns about an abusive or a traumatic past. However, there are many other reasons people might consult a psychotherapist, and sometimes the cause of general unhappiness with oneself or one's life can be difficult to pinpoint without the kind of help a trained psychotherapist can provide.

What to expect at our first meeting.

The purpose of this first therapy session is to give us a chance to meet each other and get a sense of how we might work together. We will talk about what brings you to therapy and what you are hoping to resolve or achieve. At the end of this session you will hopefully have the information you need to help you decide what the next steps are.

Professional Registration

I am registered with a professional organisation (UKCP) and accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA). This means I have met the PSA's required professional standards to practise. As advised by the NHS on their finding a qualified therapist page, you can check the accreditation and professional status of any psychotherapist using the PSA check a practitioner page. I hold an Enhanced DBS Certificate (formally CRB check) for working with adults. Re-issued in February 2022..
