Babett Hellmann MBACP
We all experience times in our lives where things just get on top of us, be it for example through bereavement/loss, relationship issues or traumatic experiences. Sometimes the issues are more subtle such as feelings of dissatisfaction with life or a sadness we can't quite shake off.
I provide a safe, empathic and confidential space where distressing issues can be explored together without becoming overwhelming and a new understanding of yourself can be fostered.
I work in both the psychodynamic as well as the CBT (cognitive-behavior) approach. During an initial session we can establish if and how we can work together, whether it be working with unconscious dynamics or with a more skills- and solution focused approach.
You are welcome to contact me without obligation if you would like any further information about the way I work or simply would like to discuss the possibilities of psychotherapy. I currently practice from therapy rooms in two locations: The Clapham High Street area in SW4 and the Telegroph Hill area in SE14.
Training, qualifications & experience
I studied at Birkbeck University for 5 years, where I gained a BSc (Hons) in Psychodynamic Counselling and CBT. My clinical experience stems from working with a diverse client group in various settings, including the IAPT-service at the Maudsley Hospital in SE5 as well as voluntary organisations such as MIND in Southwark/Lambeth, Centre 70 Counselling Service in West-Norwood and Blenheim CDP in Bexley.
As well as working as a private practitioner I currently work for a voluntary organisation specializing in gender-based violence and trauma.
I am a registered member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and comply fully with their Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions.
