Shane Sneyd

Credentials: Membership

Institution: British Psychoanalytical Council

Certification: Analytical Psychotherapist

Certification Year: 2015

In practice since: 2005

The road to becoming a Counsellor and Psychotherapist began when I completed a BPhil degree in Community, Youth and Play work in 2001 with Birmingham University. I had recognised the value of using counselling skills within the setting I was working. As a result I enrolled and completed an Advanced Diploma in Person Centred Counselling at Wolverhampton College in 2003.

In 2003 I was also successful in becoming a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). This enabled me to become established in private practice. During the period from 2003 to 2008 I completed an MA in Solution Focused Brief Therapy at Birmingham University, followed by an Infant Observation, awarded by West Midlands Institute of Psychotherapy (WMIP). I then gained accreditation status with BACP. Between 2003 and 2014 I also worked in the NHS.

In October 2015 I was successful in passing the training in Jungian Analytical Psychotherapy and becoming a member of the UK Council for Psychotherapy. December 2016 I also became a member of the British Psychoanalytical Council (BPC). I currently work full-time in private practice and I am an associate counsellor/psychotherapist to the Professional Footballers Association (PFA) in partnership with the Sporting Chance Clinic.

Generally, one of the main difficulties that can be encountered in the work of an analytical psychotherapist is related to the above question. How can a person have feelings without the feelings having them? At first glance, it may sound an odd question to ask. However, from my experience, it is one of the key questions to ask. The reason being is that when a person enters into psychotherapy, they..

The idea for the above title occurred during a conversation with my supervisor, when discussing a patient, who was on the cusp of engaging with personal therapy. His main preoccupation was worrying about various and numerous issues in his life, which resulted in him being a spectator rather than a participant in life. The outcome being that he felt that there was something missing in his life, even..

I have decided to reflect on this issue for two reasons, the first reason being the recent news report (BBC, Guardian) that has shown that more than half of all those taking antidepressants experience withdrawal problems - which for millions of people are severe. Secondly, I want to try and inspire people to engage in a psychological process instead of - or combined - with taking antidepressants. Generally,..

In my work as a analytical psychotherapist, I encounter quite a few people who struggle with panic attacks. What becomes clear pretty quickly is that some of these individuals tend to be very, very angry. However, they are not aware of their anger, and what transpires later is that they are also very frightened by their anger. It seems that they have not been able to differentiate their own angry thoughts..
