Kendra Kronenberg Psychodynamic Psychotherapist PGDip (BPC, UKCP). Shoreditch
Welcome. I am a trained Psychodynamic Psychotherapist with experience of working in organisations and in private practice (Central London). I have worked with people of all backgrounds experiencing a wide range of problems including anxiety, bereavement, cultural issues, depression, eating disorders, low self-esteem, relationship issues, sexual difficulties and trauma.
Therapy is a creative and collaborative process and I want to support you on your journey. At times this can be challenging and uncomfortable, and therefore it is important to find the right therapist for you who helps you facing your inner truths, reflect and grow.
If you are currently dealing with a crisis, have always felt this way or are just curious about yourself, I would like to work with you.
With a special interest in identity, gender and sexuality I provide a safe and non-judgemental space to explore any difficulties you may bring. These can be explored more in-depth in open-ended therapy (once or twice weekly) or with a special focus in short-term therapy (up to 12 sessions). Besides working in private practice, I am also an Associate Counsellor at the Royal College of Art Counselling Service. This has given me insight and an awareness into the pressures, challenges and joys of working creatively.
If you would like to discover more about yourself, I look forward to hearing from you.
