Daniel Weir, PG. Dip. Psych, BPC, FPC
I offer Psychodynamic and Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy in Wandsworth, to people experiencing a broad range of challenges in life.
Psychoanalytic therapy often involves meeting more than once a week, to provide additional time and space for gaining deeper insight and understanding of your concerns.
Present day difficulties can often be traced back to earlier life experiences. Time is often given to exploring these earlier moments, memories and experiences in depth, to understand their role in shaping your thoughts and feelings today.
Psychodynamic Counselling and Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy can be helpful for a broad range of issues relating to anxiety, depression, panic attacks, and other formally recognised symptoms and behaviours.
However, many people struggle to really know, or find the words for what they are going through and often simply feel stuck in life, sad, or trapped in unhelpful patterns and ways of relating. Some people feel unable to comprehend or explain what is happening or why they behave in certain ways
These things can cause problems in relationships with partners, family members, friends and colleagues and can lead to feelings of loneliness or isolation and low self-esteem.
My consulting room is based in East Hill, Wandsworth, just a few minutes walk from Wandsworth Town station. Clapham Junction is within walking distance, or a short train or bus ride away. Local buses serve Putney, Wimbledon, Roehampton and Richmond as well as Clapham, Victoria, Aldwych and Peckham.
There are extensive transport links via Clapham Junction Station and London Waterloo (18 Mins). Outbound trains from Wandsworth Town serve Kingston, Shepperton, Weybridge and Windsor & Eaton Riverside.
Once agreed, our sessions will take place at the same time each week, lasting for 50 minutes.
Please contact me with any questions or to arrange your first session.
Training, qualifications & experience
I first qualified as a Psychodynamic Psychotherapist at WPF Therapy, before training as a Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist, also at WPF Therapy. This has allowed me to understand the value of once-weekly therapy and to recognise where a more intensive approach and more frequent meetings can be beneficial.
I offer psychoanalytic psychotherapy on a one-to-one basis. I am a professional member of the Foundation for Psychotherapy and Counselling (FPC). I am registered with the British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC) and abide by their Code of Ethics.
Registered / Accredited
