Sinead Gannon, Dip.Psych, UKCP Reg, MBACP
Help Counselling Centre
57 Portobello Road
Hello. My name is Sinead. I am a qualified, accredited and experienced counsellor and psychotherapist. I offer both long and short term one-to-one counselling and psychotherapy from my consulting rooms in Central London, EC1V, near Old Street.
I work with individuals who bring a wide range of psychological and emotional issues. Perhaps you are feeling overwhelmed by the demands of work or family life. You may have experienced a bereavement, relationship break up, or redundancy which has left you reeling. Perhaps you are struggling with compulsive or addictive behaviours.
Talking about what is troubling you with a counsellor or psychotherapist can enable you to come to terms with what you have experienced, gain support, clarity and a new perspective. It can also provide you with the tools to create positive change in your life.
My approach is to cultivate a warm, professional and safe environment which in turn fosters the potential towards growth and healing that I believe is inherent in all of us. My integrative training means that I draw on a wide range of therapeutic skills and approaches to create a therapy which is best suited to you.
I feel passionately that talking therapies should not be seen as something purely for individuals who are experiencing mental health difficulties. I believe that we can all benefit from some time and space to think about our lives and understand ourselves better.
What are my next steps?
Please feel free to give me a call or send me an email if you would like to discuss any questions or concerns you may have. We can then arrange to meet for an initial consultation to see if it feels right for us to work together. You are under no obligation to continue after an initial consultation. If I am not the right therapist for you, I may be able to point you in the direction of another therapist or service that is better suited to your needs.
