Charlotte White MSc Psychotherapy and EMDR
I am available Monday to Saturday. I currently offer sessions online and face to face.
Hello my name is Charlotte and I am a warm, caring and experienced therapist working in private practice. I am also a Teaching Fellow at the University of Greenwich. I previously worked for the NHS as a band 7 psychotherapist doing group, family, and individual work and I now specialise in individual therapy for a range of difficulties.
I offer person centred psychotherapy short to long term, and EMDR therapy for trauma, which is shorter term.
I imagine you are feeling a lot of anxiety right now, and you are hoping to find some help and support. You are probably looking for someone who is trustworthy, kind, and will keep your difficulties confidential. This is what I offer the people I work with.
Beginning therapy can be very frightening, and most people don't know what to expect. That is why a big part of our first discussion will focus on ensuring you feel safe and comfortable. If you wish we can discuss your anxieties and fears about what therapy involves and I am always happy to answer any questions. The most important thing is that you feel comfortable with me, and that we can develop a strong, positive relationship which will support you to discuss whatever is troubling you.
I am genuinely interested in what you have to say, and I will not judge you. Most people feel anxiety and distress at some point in their lives, and therapy is a positive way of gaining clarity about what you want and how to tackle your problems to become happier and more fulfilled.
In terms of my experience as a psychotherapist:
