About me

I am a psychotherapist and psychologist from the south-east of England. In my practice, Feeling and Healing Psychotherapy, I use tools and techniques from different CBT therapies to help you access your thoughts and feelings that otherwise remain unconscious.

In the first few sessions, you will begin to notice a difference in your understanding towards yourself, different areas self-development to direct you in a healthy towards the best version of you. We can mindfully overcome challenges to improve wellbeing and self-esteem. The first session is light and casual. We can talk about our goals for therapy. In the sessions to come, you will gain a better understand of yourself and your life and experiences a higher quality of life.

I specialise in stress, anxiety and panic, depression, addictive behaviours namely alcohol or substance misuse as well as other areas. I offer a safe space to all religions, cultures, and genders.

You can contact me on the 'It's complicated’ platform or via email at shannon.lee1996@hotmail.co.uk

My approach

My approach is integrative psychotherapy and gestalt therapy which is both focused on past experiences and to understand current behaviours and patterns. In our sessions together, we may look at your relationships and childhood experiences to better understand your conscious and unconscious thoughts and emotions.

What you will bring to therapy, is your expert perspective of your life. I will bring the theories and understandings to help you process aspects of your day to day. I will also be here to listen in a non-judgmental way and support you in anything that comes up, as well as focusing on your more long-term goals for yourself.

We will combine meditation, journaling, mindfulness techniques, breathing and self-awareness as well as other tools supported by expert research in the field of CBT.

*Please note, there is a 24-hour cancellation policy for all consultation sessions*

Qualifications and experience

Experience
2020-today Running a Private practice called 'Feeling and Healing Psychotherapy' Working online as a Psychotherapist independently has allowed me to gain experience with working with clients with different backgrounds and experiences. This includes working with people with major anxiety disorder to couples wanting to work on their relationships. Clients found me through using Freelance websites such as It’s complicated, Psychology Today, It’s complicated and more. Contact between us was mainly through videoconference, emails, and chat. This experience has helped me improve the important skills as a counsellor; being compassionate, being in tune with the clients and their needs and wants, being authentic and reliable, and building a trusting rapport with the client. 2020-2021 Counselling in training with Fernando Herrer. I had the pleasure of working with one of the most experienced and professional psychotherapists in the field of Acceptance and Commitment therapy. He taught me how to perform ACT sessions from start to finish. I have had extensive practice using these structured sessions in my own practice and have had regular successful results. 2020-2021 Counselling in training with Jose Olid. During this training, I would accompany Jose alongside other people in his sessions to learn from his technique. He also showed me commonly used techniques used in the Cognitive Behavioural Field to treat mostly anxiety and depression. 2020 Masters (MC) in 3rd Generational Cognitive Behavioural Therapies. 2019 Bachelors (Honours) in Psychology with The Open University.
