Dr Tim Burns

Whistable Practice

Marriage Counselling Whitstable

 

My name is Dr Tim Burns and I’m a fully qualified relationship counsellor based at marriage counselling Whitstable and Canterbury. My training in couple therapy was through ‘Tavistock Relationships’ where I achieved accredited practitioner in couple therapy for depression.  Alongside a BSc and MSc in psychology. A postgraduate diploma in Integrative Psychotherapy and counselling for individuals.

My Experience

Following a career in academia I went on to work in the field of adult mental health for almost 15 years. The majority of which was within primary care mental health services alongside my private work with couples.

Couples bring a variety of issues into therapy.  As a result of affairs, sexual difficulties, issues related to physical and mental wellbeing for instance. In addition to difficulties in work/life balance and managing each partners expectations of the relationship.

I have broad therapeutic experience which I draw upon to enrich my work with couples. I have experience working with a diverse range of couples. Including those from differing socio-economic and cultural backgrounds. Through to same sex couples or where one or both have transitioned. I have worked with couples in the early stages of their relationship to those having been together for many decades.

How I can help

I provide a safe and supportive and non-judgemental space for you to talk through your issues. I will seek to build improved communication and understanding between you. My approach will allow you both the opportunity to explore your individual attachment styles. Above all, you will be given the time to communicate your needs whilst building empathy and tolerance towards each other.

Ethical Standards

I subscribe to and work within the ethical frameworks of both the BPS and the BACP. Alongside undertaking regular professional development and supervision. I also hold full professional indemnity insurance.
