About me

Are you looking for a counsellor/psychotherapist in West and Central London?

My name is Bilgi McDermott and I am a qualified and experienced Integrative Psychotherapist.Therapy offers you a chance to talk through your problems in a safe, non-judgemental and confidential setting. It is an opportunity to express and explore your thoughts and feelings in a deep and reflective way. This brings about self understanding.

I am an Integrative Psychotherapist this means I use a number of difference approaches to empower my clients to achieve their goals. Everything about healing comes down to one simple rule: recognise and affirm your emotions and you have the power to control them. I use select methods of integrative psychotherapy, relaxation, visualization, mindfulness meditation and related methods to achieve these goals.

My approach to self-transformation is based on learning to affirm the present moment, undoing learned past patterns of thinking and behaviour, and setting goals for the future.

I specialise in relieving:

  • anxiety
  • stress
  • nervousness in social situations
  • depression
  • panic attack
  • addictions
  • phobias
  • improving self confidence
  • setting up personal goals and reaching them.

I also use CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) and Brief Therapy when appropriate for immediate issues.
