Jolita Gaskin Counsellor and Psychotherapist, MBACP
To support people in self-isolation, I am offering telephone and online sessions on the number of different platforms like Skype, WhatsApp, VSee.
I am committed to providing a confidential and relaxed space, where you can feel safe to express your difficulties, worries and concerns. I believe in the healing qualities of therapeutic relationship. My aim is to create a restorative and reflective environment that recognises your personal experiences and develops new perspectives to help facilitate any changes that you wish to make.
As a psychodynamic therapist, I am particularly curious about relationships. This interest spans right from our very earliest experiences, to the connections we build with family, friends and colleagues, and our relationships with society and environment. I like to explore how childhood has impacted on adult life and focus on any patterns that may continue to be repeated that are not helpful.
I have experience helping a diverse range of clients at all stages in life. I provide both short and long-term psychodynamic therapy for adults with a wide range of issues like anxiety, depression, work related issues, relationship issues, anger management, low self-esteem, sexual abuse, abortion and trauma, postnatal depression, loneliness and cultural change. I offer therapy in English and Lithuanian.
My consulting room is in Central London, just a few minutes walk from Oxford Circus. Very convenient if you work in Central London.

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
