Natasa Bertalanic (BA Hons, PGDip, MBACP Reg.)
I am a psychotherapist with over a decade of professional experience, offering short-term and open-ended therapy. I work from my practice in Walthamstow, East London where I invite you to talk in privacy about yourself and the difficulties you’re facing. I am an attentive listener, aiming to address you as a unique and specific individual.
My approach to psychotherapy is psychoanalytic, focusing on the notion of the unconscious which suggests that we aren’t always aware of what moves us. Our true motives, beliefs, desires and fears can be hidden from us, having a powerful effect on our experience in the world and sometimes causing us pain.
Expressing freely what is in one's heart and thinking deeply about life with a psychotherapist often leads to revelations which, in turn, may provide relief from emotional suffering and a different way of experiencing oneself and others.
My practice is walking distance from Walthamstow Central (Victoria Line), St. James Street (trains to Liverpool Street) and Walthamstow Queens Road (Overground between Gospel Oak and Barking) stations.
Training, qualifications & experience
I'm a member of UKCP (United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy) and of BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy).
I'm a member of the Guild of Psychotherapists where I completed training in psychoanalytic psychotherapy. I also have a PGDip in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy and I'm trained in Transactional Analysis.
Alongside my own practice, I have been practicing at UCL Student Psychological and Counselling Services since 2015. I was previously a therapist at One Therapy London (formerly Psychotherapy UK) for nine years. I have also practiced at Mind (West Essex), Centre for Better Health (formerly the Psychiatric Rehabilitation Association), and the Guild of Psychotherapists Clinic.
