Jasmine Thombs MSc, MBACP, RN,
I am a fully qualified psychodynamic psychotherapist based in London. I provide help to people who are experiencing emotional difficulties such as: anger, anxiety, bereavement, depression, low self-confidence. If you are struggling with some of these emotions maybe a therapist can help. I provide short and long term therapy.
In my work the emphasis is on creating a safe and confidential environment to encourage emotional growth and to allow you to resolve problems and make changes in order to live a more fulfilled life.
My aim is to help you to understand and resolve your difficulties by providing the time and space to reflect on the underlying nature of emotional conflicts. My clinical experience has shown me that this can bring relief and can also opens up the possibility of changing unhelpful patterns which were previously repeated without awareness.
Sometimes an opportunity to talk something through with someone who is trained to listen attentively and objectively, without judging or offering direct advice, can provide a tremendous relief - as we are often able to speak more freely and openly in this situation.
