Dr Stacy Gandolfi Counselling Psychologist

About Me

Dr Stacy Gandolfi, BSc (Hons.), MSc, C. Psychol
Chartered Counselling Psychologist
HCPC Registered Practitioner

As a Counselling Psychologist I have experience working therapeutically with individuals, couples and groups. This experience spans a broad range of settings including the NHS, private mental health organisations, university therapy services and forensic institutions.

My experience and training has highlighted the importance of drawing upon an integrative approach in my work.

As individuals, I understand we all have different needs and requirements and as such your therapy is tailored to your needs. This includes drawing upon a variety of different therapeutic approaches to inform my practice.

These approaches include:

  • Psychodynamic: making links between your past and how this influences your present.
  • Humanistic: recognising, understanding and valuing your feelings, in order to create a stronger sense of self.
  • Mindfulness-based therapy: developing awareness of the present, to create a stronger self-awareness and enabling a greater attunement to emotions.
  • Compassionate focused therapy: encouraging a compassionate view of self to relieve suffering from self-criticism.
  • Cognitive-analytic therapy: exploring how past experiences have influenced current thoughts, feelings and behaviours and considering new methods of solving issues and coping with challenges.
  • Cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT): understanding how your thoughts impact on your feelings and behaviours and learning to manage them.

Alongside my private practice I currently work within the public sector, specialising in sexual and relational issues. In addition, I provide regular consultancy to staff working with children in care and deliver training to other professionals. I am also active in presenting workshops in schools and colleges and facilitating restorative justice meetings.
