Penelope Mandich

I am a BACP registered psychotherapist with a Masters in Integrative Psychotherapy and Counselling and 3 years of clinical experience in the NHS. I am situated in Mayfield, East Sussex and Tunbridge Wells, Kent and provide both short term solution based therapy and long term therapy for adults and young people aged 16 and over.

Taking the first step and making initial contact can be difficult. I understand that the thought of sharing painful experiences, fears and expectations may feel daunting, but therapy provides a confidential, warm and supportive space, where you can feel listened to and explore what is going on without judgment. My website is designed to give you a brief synopsis of psychotherapy and my approach to therapy. Should you wish to proceed by making an appointment for an initial consultation free of charge 15 minute phone call, or if you have any further questions, please contact me for further information on info@penmandich.com or 07780680373.

My Approach to Therapy

As an integrative therapist, I combine different theoretical approaches (humanistic, cognitive behavioural and psychodynamic) to enable a flexible and individual approach to working with each client’s individual needs and goals. I offer both short and long term therapy, depending on each client’s needs and expectations of therapy. I offer a free 30 minute initial phone consultation to enable you to discuss your difficulties and to decide if integrative psychotherapy would be beneficial for you. This will also give you the opportunity to ask questions. If you do would like to continue to therapy, the sessions are 50 minutes and occur once a week.

Can Therapy Help?

You may be considering therapy for various reasons; relationship issues, trauma, bereavement, anxiety, stress, or you may just feel stuck and unable to move forward in life. Therapy can help to unpack your difficulties, gain clarity on a situation and offer a new perspective. My role is not to give advice, but to facilitate a better understanding of the choices, motivations and patterns of behaviour that impact on your life. I believe you are the expert on yourself and so my approach is to work together to explore your difficulties and find some resolution. This can include building emotional resilience, making changes in your life or coming to terms with a difficult situation.
