About me

Psychotherapist Wendy Bristow

About me:

I am a qualified psychodynamic psychotherapist and counsellor with over a decade's experience. I trained at WPF, one of the leading training centres for psychotherapists in the country and hold a Post-graduate Diploma in Psychodynamic Theory and Practice from Roehampton University as well as a first degree in English Literature. I also trained as a Cruse bereavement counsellor.

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and the Foundation for Psychotherapy and Counselling (FPC) and I abide by their ethics, standards and practices. Since 2021 I have also taught trainees psychotherapists at WPF Therapy and am currently undergoing a qualification in supervision. 

Like many people who become therapists, I have been in therapy myself and know first-hand how helpful it can be to talk to get confidential and informed support.

What is psychodynamic psychotherapy?

Psychodynamic psychotherapy acknowledges that we don’t always know why – and how – we do and feel certain things and get into the situations that we do - unconscious processes can be at work. As well as listening to you and making observations, I might look at what goes on between us for pointers as to what might be going on unconsciously. That said, much of the research on psychotherapy emphasises that the relationship is all-important, rather than the specific method which is why I offer an introductory session to see whether we can work together.
