Angela Thwaites MBACP (Accred)
Psychodynamic counselling with me offers you the opportunity to gain insight about aspects of yourself, why you feel the way you do and how you relate to other people in your life. You are invited to think with me in a safe and confidential environment about yourself and your feelings (some of which you may not have previously thought about), whilst considering how these feelings may be linked to your very early life experiences. By exploring these underlying feelings, which at times prove difficult to manage, you may develop a different understanding as to how these past experiences (and how you felt about them), have had an emotional impact on your current life.
This unique Counselling relationship, once developed, allows you to feel listened to and understood by someone who cares, but remains neutral and non-judgmental. Your Counselling experience with me, which may feel difficult and challenging at times, can also feel rewarding and prove hugely beneficial. It can allow for a shift in your understanding about yourself and in the way you might relate to key people, and can bring about a significant increase in self confidence.
I offer short-term (12 sessions), or long-term, open-ended counselling. The first one or two consultations allow you to experience what Psychodynamic Counselling can offer and if it is the right choice for you.
My main Private Practice is located at Finchley Central. I also have a Private Practice within Chase Lodge Private Hospital, Mill Hill East and I offer Counselling in Central London at my Harley Street Private Practice.
