Carri Dodo Registered MBACP
I am a qualified psychotherapist and counsellor and offer therapeutic support in a containing and comfortable environment. I can help with a range of emotional issues such as anxiety, depression, stress, low self-esteem, divorce, bereavement, recovery from addiction, panic, OCD and many other relationship issues. I work with individual adults and young people from 14 years old. I have an interest in short-term, focused work which can be a very effective way of initially honing in on a particular problem.
TYPE OF THERAPY
I am able to draw on either a psychodynamic or cognitive behavioural therapy approach with a relational focus to help you make sense of current situations, feelings and thoughts often evoked by situations and of memories associated with past experiences. Depending on your own needs and what you would like to achieve from therapy our work together can be open-ended or brief and focused and will consist primarily of talking and working things through together.
Therapy is an individual process and finding a therapist with the right chemistry to allow the work to happen is really important. I offer a free 30 minute initial consultation so that we can meet up in person. This allows you to experience the space to talk openly and for me to assess your needs. My private practice is in a comfortable and personal space in North West London in the Queens Park area, NW6.
I provide an entirely confidential, non-judgmental space with a personalised approach to explore your innermost thoughts and feelings in a secure and caring environment.

GETTING IN TOUCH
If you interested in seeing me you can either email me or leave a telephone message and we'll arrange a brief confidential chat at a mutually convenient time.
I suggest an initial 30 minute free consultation which will be an opportunity for us to meet in person. You are not committed to anything further. If we decide we want to work together, we can either carry on with the session for an additional 50 minutes (charged as a normal session) or we will arrange a next appointment.
I can also assist with referrals.
