About me

I am a Consultant Clinical Psychologist with a 25-year experience of working with people with a variety of mental health problems in the NHS (South London and Maudsley NHS Trust), and also in private practice. I have extensive experience of working with clients from diverse backgrounds.

For more details about my  qualifications and experience, and for testimonials of my clients please visit my website   https://www.drkatjahajek.com/

During the coronavirus crisis I offer online counselling via Zoom app and I offer 10% discount

I offer individual therapy and counselling as well as couple therapy.

I offer online and telephone counselling.

In my private practice, I mainly see people with anxiety and/or depression related to marriage break-up, relationship problems, work stress, low self-esteem and other life problems.

I am a good listener, I am accessible and I offer a supportive, confidential and non-judgemental environment in which we can explore your difficulties.

I provide both short and long-term therapy. My approach is based on interpersonal and psychodynamic therapy, and  on positive psychology.

I am registered with HCPC (Health and Care Professions Council), a body which governs psychologists and other care professions who are fully qualified and meet the criteria for safe practice.

What to expect

My work with clients starts with a short assessment and an explanation of what I can offer so that you can decide whether you would like to work with me.

My practice is in East Dulwich, which is convenient for clients from Dulwich, Forest Hill,  Crystal Palace, Herne Hill, Sydenham and other parts of SE London.

To arrange an initial consultation, please e-mail, text or phone me. If I cannot reply immediately, I will get in touch within 24 hours.
