and group work
Dr Yvon Guest, Phd, BSc,MBACP
My practice is informed by a decade of counselling experience and a further decade of research on trauma and resilience. I also worked for many years in the not for profit sector with some of society's most vulnerable individuals and groups.
I focus on the relationship we have with ourselves. And the relationship between us and our social environment which is where our resilience is created.
This approach counteracts the limitations of traditional therapeutic approaches which sometimes fail to address the emotional wounds created by traumas such as homophobia, class and racial discrimination or social injustice.
I work with individuals, couples and groups. Supervision is also available for counsellors, therapists and those working with the caring professions.
I am a registered member of the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) and the BAATN (Black, Asian & African Therapist Network).
