Julie Gaudion BPC MBACP TSP MA PGCE
I practice psychodynamic psychotherapy from SW8 - Battersea/Nine Elms. My consulting room is close to transport links and easy to access.
The psychoanalytic or psychodynamic approach is based on the idea that often, unconsciously, we recreate patterns from the past in our current relationships both with other people and towards ourselves. Such thoughts, feelings and behaviour are deep rooted, and can be, at times, unhelpful and destructive.
I work in a way which explores what lies beneath our actions and repetitive patterns of behaviour, how the past affects the present; our relationships, our work and our feelings.
Whatever is on your mind can be brought to the session and talked about. This could be feelings, thoughts, memories or dreams. I will listen and try to help you make sense of how you feel. As our relationship develops, you will discover new insights which can lead to finding different ways of dealing with the problems and feelings that you had been struggling with - often for many years.
In our work together I aim to listen very carefully to you, in order that we may explore and try to understand the less conscious aspects of your thoughts, feelings and behaviour, which may be contributing to the suffering and distress you are experiencing. I believe that gaining insight into the nature of underlying emotional conflicts can bring relief, and also opens up the possibility of changing unhelpful patterns which were previously repeated without awareness.
I offer a secure and confidential professional relationship, through which problems can be identified, confronted and resolved in the privacy of regular, reliable sessions. My work is confidential and respectful of ethnic origin, gender, age, sexual orientation, religion, politics, culture or nationality.
I have experience working as a psychodynamic psychotherapist in adult mental health within two NHS psychotherapy departments in private practice. I work with anxiety, bereavement and loss, childhood trauma, depression, low self-esteem, relationship difficulties, work-related issues, personal development, sexuality, abuse, traumatic experiences and lack of direction in life.
