Shaun Bruwer BA (Hons), MBPsS, UKCP Registered Psychotherapist
Hello. My name is Shaun, and I provide psychotherapy in a safe and confidential environment, to collaboratively explore any issues and difficulties you may be experiencing. My approach is integrative: I adapt my approach to suit the client’s needs and draw on a range of schools of psychology to work with each unique individual.
How it works: We would start with an initial consultation session which allows us to determine whether or not we could work effectively together. If we decide to go ahead, we would agree an initial schedule of sessions, usually 8 to 12 weeks, after which we can take an open-ended approach.
I practice from two locations: Ladbroke Grove near Notting Hill in West London and Marylebone in Central London.
During the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, it is more important than ever to take care of our mental health. I am offering video and telephone sessions, at a reduced rate for those who have been financially impacted.
Please feel free to contact me for more details.
