Pedro Diaz, PhD, UKCP Psychotherapist. Anxiety and Relationships.
Pedro Diaz, PhD – My background is in the physical sciences. My first experience with Gestalt Therapy was over sixteen years ago; I was deeply impacted by the experiential nature of Gestalt.
I work with individuals (e.g shame, guilt, shyness, identity problems, depression, anger, loss and grief) and couples (e.g. blaming, trust, communication problems, fixed patterns, and unfulfilling relationships).
I work by meeting you where, and how you are experiencing your life. I support you to raise awareness of your behaviour patterns and how those patterns were learned and the purpose of them. I support you to explore and unlock possible changes that you might want to incorporate in your life. I help you to address those issues that might be hindering your growth and your living a satisfying life in harmony with yourself and with your others.
Training, qualifications & experience
I hold an MA in Gestalt Therapy from London Metropolitan University and the London Gestalt Centre, and a Psychotherapy Practitioner Diploma from the London Gestalt Centre. I am a fully UKCP accredited psychotherapist. I also have a Certificate in Relational Couples Therapy.
I have worked as a psychotherapist at the Wandsworth Association of Psychotherapists, The Centre for Better Health, The Awareness Centre and The London Gestalt Centre. He sees individuals and couples.
My work experience is on intrapersonal processes: shame, guilt, shyness, identity problems, depression, anger, loss and grief; and interpersonal processes: blaming, trust, communication problems, fixed patterns, and unfulfilling relationships.
