Fernanda Wagland, Psychotherapist, PGDip, BPC & FPC
Please note that due to health and safety concerns, all new therapy bookings will be for online sessions only, for the foreseeable future. Online therapy allows for continuity and connection, and transcends borders in a way that feels especially important now.
I am an experienced psychotherapist and counsellor registered with the British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC) and the Foundation for Psychotherapy and Counselling (FPC). I sees adults for short and long-term work.
In my work, I hope to provide you with what you need to change and grow. More often than not, the roots of emotional problems go deeper than normal awareness can reach, and my role is to enable you to identify, and focus on, some of the destructive ways of relating to yourself and others that might leave you feeling depressed, anxious or alone.
My aim is to create a safe and creative environment, which will help you to explore the different aspects of yourself – some which harmoniously coexist, and others that might be at odds with each other.
Ultimately, therapy is an opportunity to tell and understand your own stories; an opportunity to meaningfully acknowledge the whole spectrum of your existence. This might in turn enable you to break free from stories that are no longer truthful to who you are, paving the way for more coherent stories to emerge.
