Shanit Marshall-Strang, Ad Dip, Dip CABP, UKCP Reg
I am an experienced psychotherapist/counsellor with 18 years experience of working with individuals both in the voluntary sector and in private practice. I am based in North West London, and I provide short and longterm therapy. I offer a safe and confidential environment to bring whatever issues you may be struggling with. And to help you to explore them in a non-judgemental way, so that you can understand yourself and others better.
In my work with clients, I hold the belief that if we understand better what has made life painful for us, we can learn from it, move on in our lives, and live a much more fulfilling life. It is usually when we don't understand and we find ourselves up against the same problems over and over again, that we realise how stuck we are and that we need another perspective on things.
I work with whatever issues people bring, they might include:
anxiety and depression, relationship breakdown, including divorce and separation, bereavement, postnatal depression, cultural issues, family issues, work and financial stress, parenting issues, fertility issues and many others.
Sometimes the reasons for seeking counselling may not be obvious and people may come with a sense of a general feeling that they are unhappy or something is not right with their lives but they aren't clear what it is or what the cause is. Talking with another person who is not connected to your immediate world of family/friends/work colleagues or whoever, can help to make things clearer and bring about change.
As a psychotherapist from an integrative background, my style of working enables me to understand problems from different approaches, in particular the connection between the mind, the body and our feelings.
If you would like to contact me to talk about counselling, do call me on 07779013212, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I would be happy to discuss this with you and meet for a consultation to explore the possibility of working together.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am an experienced integrative relational psychotherapist drawing my understanding from several different approaches. My greatest source of understanding comes not only from 20 years of working with individuals both in the voluntary sector and in private practise, but also drawing from my own emotional wounds and process as a source of understanding and empathy towards the client in the process of healing and change.
I have a background of working in the voluntary sector for 10 years running a national Freephone helpline and setting up a range of services to provide free confidential support, information and advice to individuals and families, and 10 years working as a psychotherapist/counsellor.
- I have a Diploma in Body Psychotherapy - Chiron Centre for Body Psychotherapy
- Advanced Diploma in Child Development - Institute of Education, University of London
- Accredited Member of the UKCP (UK Council for Psychotherapy)
- Accredited Member of the CABP (Chiron Association for Body Psychotherapy)
