Dr Tatiana Ryklina, BPS, HPCP and Psychosexual Therapist in training
Art Of Thought Psychological Practice
39-41 Union Street
147 Commercial Street
Experienced and accredited by the British Psychological Society and HCPC Chartered Counselling Psychologist and based in the City of London. I offer individual and couples short-term, long term and open ended therapy.
Working therapeutically in different settings in the UK and abroad (Charity organizations, MIND, Hospice, NHS) with diverse individuals encompassing a wide range of psychological issues, I believe that many people can benefit from therapy. The contextual approach that my philosophy is based on means that there is no one way of working with individuals, and therefore our task is to find the best approach to meet your needs, your circumstances and what brings you to therapy at this time.
I do provide therapy in both English and Russian languages.
How we will work together
Together we will explore the difficulties that bring you to therapy, focusing on what makes you who you are, how it affects your everyday life and what we can do in order to help you to achieve what you want.
My role is to provide a confidential, safe and secure environment. This allows us to build a trusting relationship, where you set the pace, talking freely about the issues important to you. Depending on your needs and preferences, we will decide together how long therapy should last in order to come to meaningful results. The first meeting is an opportunity to discover whether we can work together and begin to understand what can be achieved through therapy, what you want and what I can offer. If you do not feel that I am the right therapist for you, it is important that we acknowledge that and refer you to another therapy or therapist who might be more appropriate.
Having experience working with clients of different age groups, cultural backgrounds, mental issues, social and personal status, I understand the importance of confidentiality and ethical dilemmas that might arise during the therapeutic process. Everything will be explored together in the therapeutic room, and clients will have all the necessary information about the ethical rules that I follow as an accredited counselling psychologist.
