Dr Natalie Loibner CPsychol Chartered Counselling Psychologist
I am a chartered counselling psychologist and have rooms at a local Wimbledon counselling organisation. As a counselling psychologist I am trained to work in different therapeutic modalities such as Person Centered Approach, Psychodynamic Psychotherapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. As my training was integrative I combine elements of these approaches in a manner which suits the individual, their presenting concerns and the goals of treatment.
I subscribe to a broadly relational approach which means that I value the therapeutic relationship as the basis through which lasting change and personal growth can occur. Research consistently demonstrates that it is the relationship which accounts for most change during therapy rather than the application of a specific technique.
I understand that for many starting therapy may be difficult and it is possible that you have been considering it for some time. I am therefore happy to offer a free initial consultation by phone to discuss any questions you may have about therapy and how I may be able to help.

I am committed to maintaining high professional standards and remaining abreast of developments in the psychology and therapeutic fields; this enables me to work effectively with various psychological conditions. In addition I regularly attend training events to continue and enhance my professional development.
