Natasa Bertalanic (Ba Hons, PGDip, MBACP Reg.)
I am a psychotherapist with a decade of professional experience in private and charity-based practices.
The therapy I provide is based on psychoanalytic ideas. The psychoanalytic approach focuses on the notion of the unconscious and suggests that we aren't always aware of what really gets us going. 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 misery.
The therapy process involves exploration of patterns of behaviour, family background, relationships, significant events as well as memories, fantasies and dreams with the hope to help one understand something about how this is contributing to the troubles they are facing. Gaining a greater understanding of oneself can help a person feel more in charge of their life and be able to live more fully and creatively.
Alongside my own practice, I also work for the UCL Student Psychological Services. I was previously a therapist at the West Essex Mind, Centre for Better Health (formerly the Psychiatric Rehabilitation Association), One Therapy London and the Guild of Psychotherapists Clinic.
I work from my practice in Walthamstow, East London.
