Dr. Maura Abdelall CPsychol, Chartered Counselling Psychologist
Are you experiencing sadness? anxiety? or anger? Most of the time these emotions come and go, but sometimes these can go on for longer and begin to cause problems, not only for the person but also in relationships with others. If you have never had therapy you may be wondering what to do, who to speak to. Talking about your emotions can help make a difference to how feel, but also how you behave and see yourself and the world.
If you are experiencing anxiety, depression, difficulties in your relationships and feel you would like to speak to someone about this, feel free to contact me for an informal conversation. I work with individuals experiencing a variety of difficulties, including: general anxiety, depression, panic, worry, OCD, relationship difficulties, low self-esteem, stress and sleep difficulties.
I am a counselling psychologist registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and with the British Psychological Society (BPS).
In my work, establishing a nurturing and trusting relationship with my clients is important as I believe that it is fundamental to the effectiveness of therapy. My therapeutic work is aimed at providing a safe and trusting therapeutic space in which the client feels able to explore and process deep hidden emotions. The aim of therapy is to arrive at a deeper understanding of oneself and subsequently change, but also acceptance of one self.
I use a combination of Humanistic, Psychodynamic and CBT theories to guide my clinical practice. Therapy is tailored according to each person’s capability and difficulty.
My practice is located in South Wimbledon, easy to get to by public transport.
