Hester Bancroft

UKCP registered Clinical Psychotherapist and NLP Master Practitioner who is passionate about supporting individuals in leading fulfilling and rewarding lives

Hester Bancroft has a first class degree in Psychology (BSc hons), is a Graduate Member of the British Psychological Society (MBPsS), is a UKCP registered Clinical Psychotherapist and is a Master Practitioner of NLP. She has been in private practice since 2008.

Hester is also currently completing doctoral studies in Counselling Psychology. Completion of the programme allows for potential registration with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) as a Registered Counselling Psychologist, application to the BPS for Chartered Psychologist (C.Psychol.) status.

Hester provides therapy for individuals wishing to establish more positive ways of living their lives; she aims to provide a safe and supportive environment where she can assist her clients in exploring the underlying causes of existing unhelpful behaviours in order to establish empowering new behaviours and set attainable and sustainable goals for the future.

Hester offers short-term or long-term support depending on a client's needs. She works with individuals experiencing anxiety and depression as well as those facing important changes in their lives as a result of divorce, career change or bereavement. Hester has a particular interest in the importance of sound self esteem and the effect it has on our ability to lead fulfilling and rewarding lives.

Hester works integratively, which means that she is not bound to working within only one theoretical tradition and, as such, tailors her support to fit the specific needs of each client. Her way of working is psychodynamic in nature, which can provide a greater understanding of our history and our deeper selves, including aspects which may not be wholly conscious to us. She also has significant experience of using Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) based techniques, which provide clear tools for changing specific unhelpful behaviours.
