Tennur Katgi Psychotherapist/ Counsellor, Member of BACP
Psychotherapy can be described as the valuable inner journey than you can gift yourself. You can discover old patterns that make you feel stuck in the present problems, gaining different perspectives and finding creative solutions to them, reducing the emotional and behavioural distress and while focusing on recovery and increasing your resilience which eventually leading to a more satisfied life.
I offer you a safe space which there is no judgement regarding your choices, feelings and thoughts, the provided information will be kept in private, and you can feel comfortable. I propose to you to be partners of healing and my goal is for you to strengthen enough to achieve a harmony between your wishes and your life.
I am a psychotherapist with several years of experience specializing in Cognitive Behavioural Therapies and Schema Therapy. I help people with a wide range of psychological problems at my private practice in north London and offer online sessions to video consultations if you are unable to attend in person.
I can help with a wide range of issues including complex trauma, depression, problems with panic and anxiety, difficulties in relationships or with parenting, borderline personality disorder, self-exploration. I help child and adolescent clients mainly in the areas of depression and anxiety problems, trauma, and adjustment problems.
MY PSYCHOTHERAPY TRAINING
I have a bachelor’s degree in Psychology (2012) and master’s degree in Clinical Psychology (2017) which I completed extensive psychotherapy training as part of the programme.
I also completed additional training in Cognitive Behavioural Therapies, Art Therapy and Play Therapy. I completed my schema therapy training with International Society of Schema Therapy. I am also a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
Previously, I worked as a psychotherapist for several charities such as Doctors of the World and Maya Foundation between 2015-2019. I had the chance to offer psychotherapy to people with various issues and coming from different cultural backgrounds.
Currently, I accept clients at my private practice.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy:
It is a short term psychotherapy approach that help you to manage your problems by changing the way you think and behave. It is the mostly recommended approach to treat anxiety, panic disorder, depression, OCD and PTSD.
I will help you to identify and challenge any negative thinking patterns and behaviour which may be causing you difficulties. In turn this can change the way you feel about situations, and enable you to change your behaviour in future. You and I might focus on what is going on in your life right now, but we might also look at your past, and think about how your past experiences impact the way you see the world.
Schema Therapy helps with self discovery, depression, relationship problems, and personality issues/disorders.
In schema therapy, we will work to uncover and understand your schemas, sometimes called as life traps which are unhelpful patterns that we might all develop if our emotional needs aren’t met as a child.
These schemas can affect you throughout life and contribute to problematic coping methods and behaviours if they aren’t addressed. Schema therapy aims to teach you how to ensure your emotional needs are met in a healthy way that doesn’t cause distress.
HOW I WORK?
I currently offer online sessions only in line with the government advice. However, I have previous training and extensive experience in online working and I see online therapy as a method of choice for many clients. I prefer to work online when you would like to receive online therapy and I find it as effective as face to face interaction.
