Lola Borg, BPC and FPC registered
I am an experienced, fully-qualified and registered therapist.
I see clients for a range of issues including depression and anxiety, addictive or compulsive behaviour, trauma or loss. Sometimes people want help because they have a feeling of hopelessness, despair or sadness that they can’t make sense of or sometimes it's because life or their relationships are not working out in a way they can't seem to explain or understand, far less change. Perhaps it’s simply that they feel stuck.
I have many years experience with all types of addiction issues and can work with clients following any 12-Step programme.
I have a quiet treatment room in Hackney, as well as premises next to London Bridge tube station. My aim is to provide a warm and sympathetic environment.
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained in psychodynamic psychotherapy at WPF (Westminster Pastoral Foundation), one of the foremost centres in the UK. I’m registered with the BPC (British Psychoanalytic Council) and FPC (Foundation for Psychotherapy and Counselling). My work is in private practice but I have also been a therapist at Mind, the mental health charity, where I dealt with a wide variety of clients and I welcome those of different ages and cultural and social backgrounds.
My main approach is psychodynamic. So in a session we talk about where your problems might originate and how this impacts on your life and relationships now. We do this at a pace you feel comfortable with. I don’t make judgements or tell clients what to do but aim to help them work out why they might be feeling the way they do and find more helpful patterns of behaviour or ways of thinking. Everything we discuss is totally confidential.

How it works
Therapy is once-weekly and each session lasts 50 minutes. Everyone is different and it’s hard to know at the beginning how long you might need. I offer shorter-term therapy. I also can work with those on a 12-Step Programme.
I always suggest an initial consultation. Then we can discuss what you might need and any questions you have, including fees. All contact and anything you discuss is confidential.
