Teresa Finlay UKCP Accredited Psychotherapist - Therapy Clinic Brighton

Teresa Finlay


Teresa is a UKCP accredited psychotherapist and clinical supervisor with over 10 years’ experience in clinical settings including therapeutic communities, private practice, community organisations and university counselling services.

Teresa started her career working in resettlement services with ex-offenders and from this developed an interest in mental health and how experiences in childhood go on to shape and influence our wellbeing, relationships and behaviour in adulthood.

For a number of years Teresa held a position as a Resident Therapist with the Arbours Association working in a therapeutic community providing a programme of group and individual therapy and arts based therapies. Alongside this she trained as a psychoanalytic psychotherapist seeing clients both through the Arbours Association of Psychotherapists and The Women’s Therapy Centre in London.

Teresa’s core approach is both psychodynamic and relational, helping individuals to make sense of the difficulties they experience within themselves and with others. This approach also looks at internal conflict and they ways in which we may work against ourselves in relationships, work and other areas of our lives.

Teresa also has a specialist interest in attachment difficulties and in working with Borderline/Emotionally Unstable Personality Disorder. She has undertaken Mentalization Based Treatment training, an evidence – based treatment for BPD/EUPD. She has also undertaken additional trainings in CBT, trauma and through the Foundation for Infant Loss.


Teresa trained as a Clinical Supervisor through The Guild of Psychotherapists in London.
