Veena Ganapathy PG Dip Psych (UKCP, BACP)
39 - 41 Union Street
The Honor Oak Wellness Rooms
82 Brockley Rise
I am a qualified therapist working psychodynamically. This way of working values the exploration of previous experiences and their impact on thoughts and behaviour now. I hope that working therapeutically together, we could create a safe and reflective space in which to better understand your difficulties and acknowledge the pain of the past. This engagement with the emotional world can lead to acceptance, healing and growth on a profound level.
I hope, in working therapeutically with me, you can find a safe and accepting way to understand yourself better and give meaning to your inner world and authenticity to your experience.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have over five years’ experience working psychodynamically with adults with a wide range of issues, ranging from low-mood and anxiety to problems with relationships. My time as a bereavement counsellor reflects my interest in giving meaning and space to the complex and deeply distressing experience of loss.
Prior to my career in psychotherapy, I worked as a NHS psychiatric social worker, supporting adults with severe and enduring mental health problems. Worthwhile in its own right, this time also strengthened my commitment to the value of ‘talking therapies’ in the alleviation of disruptions to good emotional and mental health.
In addition to my psychotherapy and social work qualifications, I have a BSc in Psychology and an MSc in Social Psychology, both of which have provided foundations upon which to build my knowledge and experience of the internal world and psychological states of being.
Areas of counselling I deal with
My fees are competitively priced and I would be happy to give you more information at the initial meeting. (This is an exploratory session to better understand what has prompted you to seek therapy at this point in your life and to consider whether psychodynamic psychotherapy may be of value to you).
I try to keep a limited number of low-cost session slots available to those who may require it. Again, we will have the opportunity to discuss this further if you feel this may be relevant to your particular circumstances.
If you are considering personal therapy, I would invite you to contact me to arrange an initial exploratory session. There is no obligation to commit to ongoing therapy following this meeting but it may give you some sense of what it would feel like to work together in this way. I look forward to hearing from you.
