- Guilt & Shame
Having completed a BA (Hons.) in Psychology and MSc in Counselling Psychology, Holly Conheady is currently a doctoral candidate and a Graduate Member of the British Psychological Society. She practises integratively, combining several therapeutic models, according to the needs and desires of each client. While her training focuses mainly on Person-Centred, Cognitive Behavioural (CBT) and Psychodynamic models of therapy, her passion lies with Existential Psychotherapy, Mindfulness and Positive Psychology.
Holly works on an open-ended basis within The Awareness Centre’s low-cost counselling service. She offers a safe and confidential space where clients are free to explore feelings, thoughts and potentials in an open and accepting environment, in the hope of fostering self awareness, understanding, compassion and growth. Holly sees counselling and psychotherapy as a collaborative venture, with an emphasis on transparency and acceptance. Her approach is always tailored to the individual client.
Holly has experience working with individuals of diverse ages, genders and backgrounds who have been experiencing challenges with addiction, abuse, relationships, anxiety, depression, bereavement and loss. With a corporate background in Business Analysis and Consultancy, she also understands the pressures and stressors of modern city living. She works to identify healthier ways of managing emotions and stress. She also specialises in shame, guilt, vulnerability and worthiness, and has a special interest in eating disorders.
