Ginny Winter | FPC | UKCP
I'm an experienced psychodynamic psychotherapist and counsellor, working both privately in West London and within the NHS (at both Chelsea & Westminster hospital and the Brent Adult and Family Psychotherapy Service). I work one-to-one with adults of all ages, offering short-term or open-ended therapy in a safe and confidential space.
If you're suffering from emotional or relationship difficulties, feel anxious or depressed, or find yourself repeating behaviours which make you unhappy, then psychotherapy might be a powerful and important resource for you.
It takes courage to decide to address your problems but many people find talking to a psychotherapist in confidence and without judgement about underlying thoughts, feelings and behavioural patterns brings about positive changes in their lives.
Training, qualifications & experience
I'm a member of two professional psychotherapy bodies: the UKCP (United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy) and the FPC (Foundation for Psychotherapy and Counselling). I hold a Postgraduate Diploma in Psychodynamic Theory and Practice, accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
I offer two alternative approaches:
- short-term therapy of 16 sessions, where we agree on a central focus for our work together
- long-term therapy, which allows for themes to emerge and deep-seated issues to be explored.
Each therapy session lasts 50 minutes and takes place on the same day and at the same time each week.
Please feel free to contact me by email or phone to ask any questions you may have.

If you would like to arrange an initial meeting please feel free to contact me by email or leave a message for me on my mobile phone. The meeting will last up to an hour and a half. Together we will explore what has led you to seek therapy now, some background information and your expectations of therapy.
There is no commitment to ongoing work at this point. The main purpose of the initial meeting is to help both of us decide if psychotherapy is the right approach for you.
If we decide to continue together we would decide an ongoing session fee and agree a regular time to meet each week.
I work with people from a diverse range of backgrounds and ages.
I have two private practices:
- In Earl's Court SW5, at the West London Practice, which is a one minute walk from Earl's Court underground station (Zone 1: District and Piccadilly lines) and within the Borough of Kensington and Chelsea parking zone.
- In Chiswick W4, a three minute walk from Turnham Green underground station (Zones 2/3: District line) with pay and display parking on the street.
