Fernanda Wagland, Psychotherapist, PGDip, BPC & FPC
Victoria And Belgravia
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.
For many people, therapy is an opportunity to tell and understand their own stories; an opportunity to mourn and rejoice. 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 unravel.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have experience of working with a range of adult mental health difficulties: anxiety, depression, BPD, relationship issues, the impact of trauma and loss, drug and alcohol dependency, low self-esteem, psychosexual problems and adult survivors of sexual abuse. I also have an interest in the unique emotional challenges faced by young adults, immigrants, creative people and the LGBTQI community.
