Khalid Deverill M.A, ADIP, UKCP reg
I am an Integrative Psychotherapist and have sixteen years experience as a therapeutic practitioner working with clients from a wide range of backgrounds and cultures. I maintain my private practice alongside my work as a lecturer in psychotherapy and counselling at Regents University and as clinical lead and supervisor of the counselling service at Camden Working Men’s College.
Psychotherapy is an opportunity to understand yourself and your relationships to others, within and relating to the broader social context. People come to psychotherapy to address urgent problems they may be experiencing, as well as to pursue a desire to find their place in the world. For me therapy is also a creative process and this is all the more important in a society obsessed with consumption. Each person’s therapy is a unique creation and this creativity can, in time, be expressed in everyday life. I provide a flexibility of mind to the process and draw from a broad range of psychotherapeutic theory and practice.
My practice offers both time limited and open ended long-term psychotherapy. You can use the service for a few months or for a number of years. My consulting room is located 10 minutes walk from Walthamstow Central station on the Victoria line. Off street parking is available.
For those of you interested in my practice orientation, I am registered as an Integrative Psychotherapist with the core of my practice being in Relational Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy. I integrate Existential and Phenomenological theory as well as broader theory and practise relating to intersubjectivity into my work. My work is also grounded in the political and social discourse of dissent. My aim as a therapist has always been to not try and pursue conventional notions of normality, but to understand what makes us unique, why that matters and how one might find peace and justice in the world.
