Barbara Sebti, FDs psychodynamic counselling & CBT, MBACP
Brief therapy — working with a specific focus
Short-term therapy using NHS recommended models of counselling to help you explore how to become an expert at recognising what drives your depression, anxiety or relationship issues. Counselling will give you time and space to look at life's challenges and can help you recognise that the way you currently feel able to deal with these issues may hold you back from living your life as you desire.
If you have suffered long periods of low mood, anxiety, mood swings, phobias, obsessive-compulsive behaviours or withdrawal from closeness, therapy will assist you to look at your difficulties more closely and find a more positive approach to life.
I specialise in short-term therapy and work with a variety of short-term models such as ISTDP - DIT - CBT and Solution Focused therapy. I have experience working in the NHS, community counselling services and in private practice.
Please consult my website for a more in-depth outline of these different counselling approaches.
I offer one-to-one sessions at my consultation room in Islington, plus Skype online counselling sessions for people who are frequent travellers or who find it difficult to attend because of work commitments.
