Mari Yamamoto, Psychotherapist UKCP reg, MSc | Ealing W5
07879 811 395
I have been offering psychotherapy and counselling over eleven years. I am a fully qualified psychotherapist registered with the UKCP. UKCP allows full registration only to psychotherapeutic practitioners who are trained to the level of Masters degree as minimum. I am trained, qualified and have experience in individual and couples work. I offer sessions in English and in Japanese.
In addition to my private practice in Ealing W5, I work at King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust as a counsellor for individual and couple clients.
Apart from usual self-referrals, some clients at my Ealing private practice come to see me through referrals from a consultant doctor, EAPs (Employment assistance programmes) or through a professional dance school. At the hospital, the referral sources of clients are GPs, specialist doctors at the hospital or physiotherapists.
Attending your initial consultation session with me does not automatically oblige you to start the counselling process with me. Once we agree to work together, your sessions will be held regularly on a weekly basis.
I take an Integrative approach. I attempt to understand your difficulties relationally; people’s emotional wellbeing is often linked with the way they relate with others. I try to make sense of your painful feelings within the context of your surroundings. Within the confidential, safe and non-judgemental sessions, you can explore how your difficult feelings have set in and developed and how you are managing those feelings by acting and thinking in certain ways.
My experience of offering psychotherapy over eleven years has shown me that clients can use the new self-awareness to solve difficulties with other people and to start re-building meaningful relationships with important others.
