Ilja Gregory MA (Cantab), PgDip (Psych.), MBACP, FPC Reg
I am an experienced, fully-accredited psychotherapist, passionate about supporting my clients in improving their psychological well-being.
I see therapy as a conversation about living, a way of deepening our inner resources, opening up possibilities and, ultimately, becoming more authentically ourselves, leading to a more fulfilling and creative life.
I practice psychodynamic psychotherapy, which is an in-depth approach, aimed at understanding our inner lives. I am interested in how behavioural and emotional patterns that developed early in life can affect our present; perhaps leading to unhelpful ways of relating towards ourselves and others. Gaining insight into such self-limiting patterns can open up new ways of thinking, and bring about change and personal growth.
I have experience in helping my clients deal with a wide range of psychological and life issues, including:
Stress and anxiety
Depression and depressive tendencies
Issues around identity and sexuality
Dilemmas around parenthood
Difficulties in the workplace
Difficulties in forming and maintaining personal relationships
Lacking a sense of purpose in life
