Amy Gorton
Integrative Psychotherapist
Consultant Placeholder 360X246

Amy (she/her) is an integrative psychotherapist and began working at Priory in July 2022. Before working at Priory, she worked in the NHS as well as in specialist services for people who have experienced post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)/complex PTSD (C-PTSD) and its co-morbid disorders. She is a member of the BACP.

Training

Amy completed her postgraduate diploma in integrative psychotherapy in 2018 at the University of Central Lancashire and is currently completing her MA research thesis. Her postgraduate diploma integrated traditional therapeutic models of psychodynamic therapy with humanistic and relational models such as transactional analysis (TA) and person-centred therapy (PCT).

 Alongside her postgraduate diploma, Amy has undertaken training in mentalisation based treatment at the Anna Freud Centre and dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT) training with British Isles DBT Training UK.

She has completed training in ‘rewind’ technique by IARRT and managing self-harm and suicide by PODS.

Research Interests

Amy has a special interest in trauma and its impact on the brain and body. In particular, she is interested in how individuals manage the impact of traumatic events or experiences. She is currently writing her MA research thesis on the impact of sexual violence on women and girls.

I am curious about who my clients are as humans; the experiences that shape them and the way that we respond to these experiences. I am a trauma-informed practitioner, which means that I want to understand the significant things that happened in a person’s life; looking at what happened to them rather than what is ‘wrong’ with them. Often, our difficulties are a result of trying to adapt to or survive difficult or challenging situations. I strive to offer an empathetic, non- judgemental, respectful space and I believe the therapeutic relationship is key to long-term change.
