Hannah Cruttenden, UKCP and BACP Registered Psychotherapist; DPhil, MBPsS
I am an experienced and friendly UKCP/BACP registered psychotherapist based in Ealing, West London, offering weekly 50-minute sessions Monday-Friday and Saturday mornings.
I work collaboratively with people to resolve their problems, bearing in mind that every person is unique. The pace of therapy, the issues we address, and how we address them are tailored to the individual. I have a deep respect for the humanity and goals of every client I see, irrespective of age, race, gender or sexuality.
Issues I work with
Not everyone comes with one specific difficulty. The range of issues I have worked with include anxiety and panic, generalised anxiety disorder, depression, sadness, loneliness, relationship issues, family issues, separation and divorce, trauma, loss of meaning in life, personality disorders, bereavement and other losses.
Where you can find me
My office is located on the main Uxbridge Road through central Ealing, close to Ealing Town Hall, and within walking distance of Ealing Broadway station (National Rail & Central/District Lines). There is a bus stop directly outside (207, 483, 427).
What happens next
Once you have made contact, I prefer to have a short phone call (free of charge) so we can discuss what it is you are looking for in therapy. Then if you choose to go ahead, our first face-to-face assessment session will be a chance for you to tell me more about yourself and ask any further questions of me. Both short and long term therapy are available.
What we talk about during our sessions will be jointly agreed. We may focus on current life events, or explore the impact of past experiences. New perspectives can reduce anxiety and depression, and help manage problems like loneliness, low self-esteem or relationship/family issues.
The benefits of psychotherapy and counselling include better relationships, and being able to live more calmly and optimistically in the present, with purpose, instead of getting caught up in feelings of frustration, anxiety, depression, anger or regret. You might also find you can reconnect with yourself on a deeper level, with a renewed sense of your values, strengths and goals.
My training is in Integrative Psychotherapy. I use ideas from psychology, neurobiology, family systems, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and relational psychotherapy.
Please contact me if you would like to have a chat about what I offer, or arrange an assessment session.
