Dr Lana E Gerrard-Molle, DCounsPsych HCPC BPS
I am a Chartered Counselling Psychologist registered with the HCPC and BPS. Alongside my private practice I work for the Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust.
My therapeutic approach is relational and I believe that it is important for people to maintain satisfying and fulfilling relationships, both with themselves and others, in order to maintain emotional health. I specialise in psychodynamic psychotherapy which has a particular focus on the ways in which our early experiences shape and influence how we relate to ourselves and others. I work collaboratively with clients to build a strong and secure therapeutic relationship and tailor therapy to fit each individual.
My discreet treatment room is based in Brondesbury, North West London. It is in easy reach of Kilburn, West Hampstead, Willesden Green and Kensal Rise.
It is an 8 minute walk from Kilburn Station (Jubilee Line) and 12 minutes from Brondesbury Overground Station. There are many bus routes serving this location, and it is within easy reach of central London.
There are parking restrictions from 10:00 - 15:00hrs, but there is pay and display parking close by.
I also have some availability to see people in Queens Park, North West London, and Watford, Hertfordshire WD17
Training, qualifications & experience
I am registered with the HCPC as a Practitioner Psychologist and with the British Psychology Society as a Chartered Psychologist.
I have over 15 years of clinical experience in the NHS, and I completed a Professional Doctorate in Counselling Psychology from the University of East London in 2012. My training provided me with a robust and broad training in a number of evidenced-based psychological models including psychodynamic psychotherapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). I have further training in Mentalisation Based Therapy (MBT), Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy (ISTDP) and Narrative Exposure Therapy (NET).

Areas of counselling I deal with
Fees are negotiable depending on circumstances. Please contact me to discuss fee options
I have many years of experience working with individuals suffering from a variety of mental health problems including depression, anxiety, PTSD, and post-natal depression, and, severe and enduring mental illness including psychosis, schizophrenia, bipolar affective disorder and personality disorders.
I offer short-term time limited work as well as long-term psychotherapy. You do not need to commit to ongoing psychotherapy when you make contact with me. Our initial appointment will allow us the opportunity to think together about your current situation and difficulties, and how we could work together.
