Veronika Kloucek, MBACP
I am an integrative therapist, a registered member of BACP, a mindfulness teacher and accredited senior yoga teacher. My special interest is in working with relationship problems and trauma, and in mindfulness for the treatment of anxiety and depression.
Most of my private work is open-ended but my work within the NHS is solution-focussed, short-term therapy and you can request this too.
I offer a non-judgmental, safe and confidential space in which you can explore various aspects of your life and talk openly about thoughts and feelings in a way which might not be possible with friends or family. Talking through past experience and present relationships can yield insight into unhelpful ways of living and bring about meaningful change.
My roots are in Freud’s Vienna and I have family connections to Austria, Italy, Germany and the UK. My thinking is based on an embodied mind and the integrative approach allows me to combine traditional therapeutic ideas with contemporary findings from neurobiology and evidence-based models such as CBT. In this way therapy is tailored to suit your needs, rather than you fitting into a method.
I work privately from practices in West Hampstead (NW3/NW6), and near Bond street (W1).
How to get started?
The best way to get started is to email or call for an initial confidential consultation to consider your needs and think together about the way forward.
