About Holly
Holly Ricioppo BA Hons, Dip Psych.Couns.
Registered Memberships: BPC (British Psychoanalytic Council), BACP


As an experienced psychodynamic therapist I work with adults - mostly individually - in face to face long-term psychodynamic therapy and sometimes in shorter-term psychodynamic counselling.

In addition to my private practice I work as a Seminar Leader and Tutor for Wessex Counselling and Psychotherapy.
Occasionally I also lead private groups, workshops and classes on a close variety of subjects including personal and professional development, Mindfulness, Western Mystery and Tibetan origin Meditation.

I have worked in therapeutic and educational roles for over 25 years, including within the NHS.

As a registered member of the BPC and the BACP I adhere to their framework of professional and ethical standards.  
I regularly undertake post qualification professional development trainings to ensure my practice is up to date, relevant and of the highest standard.
