Hannah L Cruttenden, UKCP-Registered Psychotherapist; DPhil, MBPsS
33 Central Chambers, The Broadway
I am an approachable, friendly, experienced UKCP-registered Psychotherapist and Counsellor based in West London, opposite Ealing Broadway station (National Rail & Central/District Line).
I offer therapy to adults, usually in weekly 50-minute sessions.
I work with a range of issues, including anxiety, generalised anxiety disorder, depression, relationship difficulties and rifts, trauma, loss of meaning in life, and bereavement.
How I work
I aspire to work with clients as equals, in an atmosphere of trust, so that we can explore your experience together.
What we talk about will partly depend on your unique issues and personality. You may benefit from techniques to address your immediate difficulties, but then decide to explore the impact of your past on your current life. We may notice patterns of thinking or behaving which are no longer working for you - then look at how you might want to change them.
The long-term benefits of therapy include greater self-acceptance and self-compassion, allowing you to live more calmly and optimistically in the present, instead of getting caught up in feelings of anxiety, anger or regret.
I am trained in Integrative Psychotherapy. I use ideas from psychology, neurobiology, family systems theory, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and mindfulness.
When you come for an initial session, we can discuss how psychotherapy might work for you. You may decide to come for 6 or 12 sessions. Some clients then decide to continue on an open-ended basis, until their difficulties are sufficiently resolved.
Please contact me if you would like to have a chat about what I offer, or arrange an assessment session.
