Sara Galgani MSc, CTA (P), UKCP reg.
I am a qualified and registered psychotherapist with the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) which is a national association of psychotherapy organisations and individual practitioners. I am a Certified Transactional Analyst (CTA) and a member of the European Association of Transactional Analysis (EATA) and the International Association for Relational Transactional Analysis (IARTA).
I provide confidential short and long-term counselling and psychotherapy to adults on a one-to-one basis and I co-facilitate personal development groups. I also work with couples.
My private practice is located in central Richmond within easy reach of Chiswick, Kew, Twickenham and Kingston.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a MSc in Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy from Middlesex University and a postgraduate diploma in Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy from the Metanoia Institute. In 2005, I also completed two years of undergraduate training in Person-Centred Counselling at the Metanoia Institute. These training courses combined cognitive, humanistic and psychodynamic models of working.
I have been practising as a counsellor and psychotherapist since 2004 in various settings, where I gained invaluable experience working with people with a variety of concerns such as depression, anxiety, feelings of isolation, relationship difficulties, work difficulties, low self-esteem, loss and trauma.
In addition to the above, I have also trained and worked as a clinical assessor; completed a mental health familiarisation placement within an Eating Disorders Unit on the NHS; and gained experiences working within a Centre for Fertility and Genetics in the private sector where I developed a capacity to meet the needs of people with various fertility concerns.
