Terry Hyde MA MBACP.

Psychotherapist/Counsellor and Retired Professional Dancer

  • There are times in everyone’s life when circumstances or situations such as bereavement, relationship break-downs or   the pressures of every-day life leave us feeling overwhelmed. This can lead to a range of distressing symptoms such as anger, eating disorders, anxiety or depression.
  • For professional performers, these problems can be magnified because of the additional demands placed on them.
  • ​​As a retired ballet dancer, who has retrained as a Psychotherapist, I believe that I have a unique understanding of the particular challenges that dancers face.

For me, it was so amazing that Terry had been a dancer as he was able to fully understand what I was going through and being able to apply the therapy from a dancer’s perspective made the process so much more reassuring as Terry already understood the pressure of the dance world and how that can affect you as a person. It made me feel less alone. Terry has helped me immensely. AL Skype.

All sessions last for 50 minutes, often a few sessions are all that are needed. We discuss this during the first session so you can decide if you want to go ahead with a course of sessions which can be weekly or monthly, for instance.
