Embarking on a course of psychotherapy is not something a person should enter into lightly. I practice a solution orientated, brief form of psychotherapy. Saying that, a commitment to the process is required, and I urge you to do your homework, in order to ensure that I am the right therapist for you.
In addition to being accredited by the UKCP, Shaun is a registered Psychotherapist with the European Association for Psychotherapy and the World Council for Psychotherapy. Additionally, he is an honorary fellow of the National Society of Talking Therapies. Shaun also practices Outcome Oriented Psychotherapy, EMDR and Mindfulness Based Psychotherapy as well as Hypnotherapy/Hypno-Psychotherapy (since 1989). Brookhouse Psychotherapy Manchester provides a truly integrative approach to psychotherapy in Manchester. Additionally, he completed a Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling which granted him registration as a Psychotherapeutic Counsellor with UKCP.
He has been providing psychotherapy in Manchester, specifically in Whalley Range since 1991, andhas worked with thousands of people from all
walks of life and backgrounds. He is empathetic and non-judgemental. He embraces the core conditions of Congruence, Empathy and Unconditional Positive Regard which assists his clients in achieving their therapeutic goals in a timely manner. Shaun incorporates Solution Focused Therapy with Integrative Psychotherapy and Counselling which makes the therapeutic experience one that is truly empowering and life affirming.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy
As part of Shaun’s therapeutic model, he employs Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) as an essential part of his work. ACT is about Accepting one’s thoughts and feelings, Choosing a valued direction and (perhaps the most important part) Take action. It is not very helpful to deny what we feel, this does not mean we need to like what we feel. However, until and unless we can accept where we are starting from, we cannot get to where we are going. Shaun will help you to take the necessary action to move forward to the future you want.
It is impossible not to notice that we are living in a world where unprecedented acts of violence and disaster are common place. Trauma is a major mental health issue, so in 2017, Shaun undertook specialist training in order to qualify as a Clinical Traumatologist. Trauma comes in many guises and it is essential that you seek out a practitioner appropriately trained to work in this specialised area. Shaun Brookhouse is one such practitioner.
Since 2001, Shaun has provided Psychotherapy Supervision for Psychotherapists of all levels of experience both in Manchester as well as via SKYPE, Zoom and WhatsApp throughout the UK. He is honoured that so many of his fellow practitioners trust his work to the extent that they want to work with him in a supervisionary relationship. He should also mention that he is also currently in clinical supervision and undertakes regular Continuing Professional Development courses to keep his skills current and to continue to act as an ethical provider of psychotherapy.
So whether you are looking to experience psychotherapy for personal development or to work with a specific issue or challenge in your life, Shaun is sure you will find the information you need on this site.
