Cally Wolrige Gordon - couples & individuals
West London Therapy Rooms
Fulham Park Studios
My interest in psychotherapy was sparked during my early career as a theatrical agent. I had to support my acting clients through the good times and the bad, the overwhelming affect of fame and money or the disappointment of potential failure and shattered dreams. I felt ill-equipped to deal with the very real problems they were facing and so, 20 years ago, I signed up to a one year introductory course to psychotherapy. I then began to have therapy myself and it changed my life.
There may be any number of reasons that have brought you to reading this. You may be having problems in your relationships or feel overwhelmed by sadness for an unknown reason. Perhaps you are experiencing difficulty with carrying out the simplest of tasks or constant anxiety on a daily basis. There are a great many destructive thought patterns and feelings that psychotherapy can help with.
Having therapy as a couple can offer a particularly rich opportunity for change and growth both in the individuals and as a unit. Reaching emotional truths in front of the person who knows us best can be a poignant yet gratifying experience which can nurture intimacy and connection even when things have become really stretched.
I understand how daunting it can be to contact a psychotherapist. I work collaboratively at all times in order to make this sometimes difficult process as safe and gentle as possible, while still maintaining the focus on what you feel needs to change. Our first session would give you the chance to see how you feel about me and my way of working. Although I am an experienced and fully trained psychodynamic psychotherapist, I have also trained in the more modern, evidence based methods, including Coherence Therapy. My couples training was conducted with the CCPE, an enriching transpersonal approach to relationship. I can work flexibly, either on Skype or in person, with weekly sessions or on a needs basis, whichever suits you best.
What To Expect
Once you have made contact with me, we will agree a time to meet and I will send you directions. My initial assessment fee is £65. If, at our first meeting, you decide you would like to meet again we will discuss an ongoing fee which is income based ranging between £40 and £80 for individuals and £70 - £120 for couples.
I have trained in a wide variety of different methods so there are a number of ways to approach whatever may be troubling you, some may feel more suitable to you than others. The important thing is that you feel you are a very important part of the decision making process in terms of how we work together.
I am results focussed, that is; you should notice a difference in your symptoms while seeing me.
