Georgina Lenon - Psychodynamic Psychotherapist
At times in life, many people experience stress, anxiety, relationship issues, or depression. The recent lock down may have magnified issues or prompted you to review certain aspects of your life.
Whatever the nature of your current difficulties, I offer a safe and confidential space in which you can talk openly and without fear of judgement.
Starting therapy can seem daunting, so an initial session will give you an idea of what it will be like and we can then discuss together how best to proceed.
I am an experienced psychotherapist providing once and twice weekly therapy for adult clients. I believe difficulties in the present may be related to experiences in earlier life and that understanding the origins of these can relieve stress and anxiety and open up the possibility of change.
I work from a comfortable consulting room less than five minutes walk from Victoria Station within easy reach of Westminster, Pimlico, Belgravia, and Chelsea.
I also work online via Zoom and on the phone if circumstances prevent sessions face to face e.g. lock down, change of location, travel for work, or if physical access to my consulting room is prohibitive due to injury or disability.
To set up an initial meeting please phone or email, and I will respond as soon as possible. All enquiries are confidential and you do not need a GP referral to make an appointment.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a Postgraduate Diploma & MA in Psychodynamic Theory & Practice.
I am registered with The British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC) and The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP).
I have over twelve years experience in psychotherapy and have worked as a student counsellor for both The Royal College of Art and The Royal Drawing School, as well as a long term psychotherapist and assessor at WPF Therapy.
