Anne-Marie O'Connor (Counsellor, MA, MBACP, Gestalt)
15-23 St. Pancras Way
I am an experienced & professionally qualified counsellor and psychotherapist, with many years of experience working in both private practice and in more specialised counselling organisations. My practise is based in the Camden area of London. I offer both short and long term counselling to individuals and couples as well as running personal development groups. I offer a non-judgemental, confidential, safe space, in which to explore whatever is currently troubling you and my approach is both relational and creative. No problem is too small and all pain is recognised as hurting.
What therapy can offer
Coming to counselling can be the first step in accepting that life does not have to be this way, change can occur and change can be scary. I see both men and women for a wide range of different issues including anxiety & depression, trauma, relationship difficulties, bereavement and loss, and many other issues that people may seek therapy for. I have experience of working with mental health difficulties and with clients who have experienced early childhood trauma.
I will explore with you whatever you choose to bring at a pace that is determined by you.
Gestalt psychotherapy and counselling works with the body as well as with the mind and emphasises how we relate to ourselves, others and the wider environment. Gestalt Therapy emphasises the growth of awareness and my role as a therapist is to work with you to raise your awareness of yourself and your thoughts, feelings and embodied sensations so that you can make sense of what is going on for you. I will work holistically and compassionately with you (and with your partner if you are coming for couples counselling) to explore any difficult or painful issues you may be facing.
