I am a therapist, supervisor and trainer in two approaches: Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT) and Solution Focused Therapy (SFT). I work mainly within the NHS, and see some private clients.
 
English and Spanish are my mother tongues. I am fluent in Portuguese and French, and speak reasonable Italian.
 
Cognitive Analytic Therapy is an integration of psychodynamic, cognitive and other ideas and methods. It is brief, focused, collaborative, effective and evidence-based. For most people I offer a contract of 16 weekly sessions; some people may want more, or fewer. This would be discussed at the Assessment session.
CAT enables people to understand, recognize and change the problematic patterns they have been engaging in. It can work on specific problems and issues, as well as on the whole personality. It is useful for most problems and most people, including those with a diagnosis of ‘personality disorder’.
 
Solution focused therapy starts from what is working well for the client and builds on this. The therapist will ask clients how they would like themselves or their life to be, and will help them work towards this.
 
SFT is suitable for any type of person, and any type of problem. It may be particularly helpful for people who are unhappy with aspects of themselves, their relationships or their lives, but don’t want to have therapy – and also for people who have had a lot of therapy in the past without achieving significant changes.

With SFT there is no pre-fixed number of sessions. The client decides each time whether to come back, and how soon.
I work with individuals, couples, and other combinations of people (e.g. father and son).

Why therapy?

Many of us encounter difficulties and challenges in our lives. Often, we can address them on our own or with the support of friends. However, there are times when life events become overwhelming. You may become aware of certain repeated, destructive patterns in your life but feel unable to prevent them from happening - it can seem as if your choices have been taken away and you feel powerless. At times like this psychotherapy can help you to become aware of how and why these patterns originated. It also supports you to look at the part you play in creating and perpetuating them - for this is the part that you can change.

Although understanding the past is an important part of the therapeutic process, actual change can only happen in the present. Change means choosing to do things differently and that can seem very risky and frightening. Psychotherapy will help you develop a stronger sense of yourself so that you can contain that anxiety, take back the power that you give away and create the life you want.

As an experienced therapist I can help you to heal your past, live your present, and create your future.

About me

I have worked as a psychotherapist and counsellor in the Stoke Newington, Hackney and Islington areas since 1998. I hold a postgraduate diploma in Integrative Humanistic Psychotherapy, a Certificate in Psychodynamic Counselling, and an MSc in Psychotherapy.

I am registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP) and adhere to their Code of Ethics and Good Practice. I have personal indemnity insurance and receive regular professional supervision.

I believe that the wide range of people I have counselled – the different problems and situations that we have worked through - informs and enriches my current therapeutic work with all my clients.

I am an experienced UKCP registered Integrative Psychotherapist and Counsellor, working in Stoke Newington, N16. I have worked as a psychotherapist for the NHS, Higher Education and for the charitable service WHCM Forrest. I currently combine private practice with journalism about the talking therapies. I also supervise other therapists.

I imagine, reading this, that you are feeling something that is getting in the way of things. Maybe you are sad, angry, anxious, low, lonely or feeling something that makes it difficult to like yourself or others. Sometimes we don’t have the words to describe what we are feeling, although we do know we want to feel better.

My experience has shown me that talking through these things with someone trained to hear them (and respond to them) in a particular way can often be hugely helpful. It won't “cure” you, and cannot erase a painful past, but it can equip you to move on with greater ease, and even with a greater potential for further positive change.

My website www.juliabueno.co.uk aims to tell you more about me, my experience, my style of working and also about how I may be able to help you. Feel free to contact me with questions that remain un-answered.

I am an experienced psychotherapist and counsellor, UKCP registered since 1993.

I have been in practice in Stoke Newington N16 for eighteen years, based for much of that time at the Burma Road Practice. I have recently established a second consulting space in Hoxton, Shoreditch N1.

I offer integrative and cognitive counselling and psychotherapy to individuals and couples, for depression, stress, anxiety, panic and more.

I can help with anger management, work-related or relationship problems, self-esteem, confidence and assertiveness. I am experienced in working with addictive and compulsive behaviour.

My style is optimistic, sympathetic and interactive, focused towards positive change.

In addition to my private practice I worked for many years as a counsellor in NHS Primary Care (GP practices) as a member of an organisation offering brief cognitive and solution-focused therapy. I have ten years experience as a clinical supervisor of other therapists and counsellors, within organisations and independently. I trained in Integrative psychotherapy and then group psychotherapy at the Minster Centre in London.

Therapy is a way of exploring the possibilities that we can heal from wounds of the past. It helps to understand and clarify our experiences of life relationships. Sometimes issues arising from these relationships cause feelings of unsatisfactoriness and even despair if the potential to change is obscured. We cannot change the past but we can alter our experience of the past.
 
Through giving close attention to experiences in the present, we can relate to past conditioning and sense into embodied intentionality.
 
I have worked on the NHS and in private practice for many years with a complexity of conditions including anxiety, depression, addiction, relationship difficulties, PTSD and personality disorders.
 
As a UKCP registered Psychotherapist and Supervisor, I bring together an integrated approach that focuses on developing awareness of mind and body. Mindfulness is part of this integration as the practices enable the embodied process of coming to know the self in relationship.
 
I trained with the Karuna Institute in Devon where the practice of psychotherapy is informed by Buddhist psychology. I was also a tutor in the MA programme at the Karuna Institute from 2008 to 2012.
 
I am currently working on my doctorate researching on the interface between psychotherapy and Buddhist teachings.

Therapy can be a time and place for two people to meet and talk with the aim that the client may move towards a more fruitful and meaningful existence.

With an MA in Existential Psychotherapy and Diploma in Adlerian Counselling, Kathy offers therapy sessions for individuals who are experiencing difficulties and problems with living.

The existential approach to therapy is fundamentally philosophical; it is an approach that tries to avoid preconceptions and prejudice in favour of attempting to understand and describe the individual and unique world of the client. Indeed, it is an approach that does not necessarily try to facilitate change - though change often occurs - but rather helps the client come to terms with life and all its contradictions.

The existential approach eschews a formalised technique of therapy, preferring to focus on one that is questioning of your individual circumstance.

If you would like to discuss the possibility of psychotherapy in london, or feel like you would like to arrange an initial - without obligation - session to meet and discuss whether this is for you, then please do not hesitate to contact me.

I have 25 years experience as an psychotherapist and also as a supervisor to trainees and qualified counsellors and psychotherapists.

I have a training background in humanistic/transpersonal and analytic counselling and psychotherapy. I am a UKCP Reg member of The Bowlby Centre.

Attachment-based psychotherapy believes in the central importance of human relationships in our development. Secure and supportive attachments and relationships help us to be more confident in ourselves. But if we didn't have this secure base in childhood, we may easily feel lost, abandoned or disturbed in other ways, especially when crises arise in our every day lives. The therapy can give you the opportunity to understand, talk about, make sense of what has happened to you, and to mourn any losses.

In this process you can be helped to move on in your life, and to enhance your possibilities in relationships.

I work with individuals and couples from a wide variety of different backgrounds, with many different problems, and I am able to work flexibly according to individual needs.

Finally I am a founder and practice manager of The Burma Road Practice for Counselling and Psychotherapy. In this role, I offer Assessment Interviews for people who may be seeking some counselling or psychotherapeutic help, and need a helping hand to negotiate the process. Please refer to the
Burma Road Practice entry for further information.

 Jonathan Raznick  MA (Ex.Psych.Couns) BACP (accred.), UKCP registered
Telephone: 07811 373382
Email: jonathan.raznick@gmail.com
Website: www.londoncounselling.org

I am an experienced, fully qualified, BACP accredited Counsellor and UKCP registered Psychotherapist, based at convenient locations in Stoke Newington in Hackney, Holborn and The City. I offer both short and long-term counselling and psychotherapy to individuals, using an open, grounded approach.

Counselling and psychotherapy are both ‘talking therapies', or in other words, conversations that attempt to help us make sense of our lives. Their aim is to clarify those aspects of a person's life that cause distress, confusion or lead us to feel blocked, stuck or unfulfilled. It is through such clarification that one is more able to make choices about those things that we may wish to change or understand more fully, and also to come to terms with those things that we can't.

I work on the assumption that feeling safe and contained within the client-counsellor relationship, forms the basis of our work together. My approach to counselling and therapy is non-dogmatic, supportive and involved. It is also always jargon-free – if things cannot be stated in every day language, then it is likely that they have not been properly expressed or understood.

I hope that this gives you some indication of my perspective on counselling and psychotherapy. However, feel free to contact me if you’d like to know more about how I work, to discuss any aspect of my practice or to arrange an initial session.
