My name is Sean O’Dwyer.
I provide a safe and confidential therapy and supervision space in my home in Ealing.
I am passionate about my work and see psychotherapy as not only a place for working through difficult issues but also as an opportunity for growth and personal development. This can add further creativity and spontaneity to one’s life.
My private practice is within easy reach of Chiswick, Acton, Brentford, Hanwell and Kew.
I am a member of the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) which is a national association of psychotherapy organisations and individual practitioners. Psychotherapists can become members only if they meet exacting standards and training requirements. These conditions were introduced to protect the public and to insure the high quality of available psychological therapies.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a qualified Transactional Analysis Psychotherapist with a Clinical Diploma in Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy from the Metanoia Institute and an MSc in Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy from Middlesex University.
I have also completed a one year diploma in Gender and Sexual Diversity Therapy and have attended further training in specific issues such as self harm, eating disorders and couples work.
In my experience, these are some of the issues I have worked with:
- anxiety and panic attacks
- self esteem and confidence
- early childhood issues
- sexuality and sexual identity
- bereavement and loss
- relationship difficulties
- issues that cause distress at work or in your private life
I work with many other issues that arise in life and am happy to discuss with you whether we may be able to establish a good working relationship.
