Theresa Plewman MSc, PG Dip (BPC, UKCP)
I am a professionally qualified psychodynamic psychotherapist with extensive experience in different settings - both in the NHS and privately.
I work with a range of different issues on a one-to-one basis with adults and older adolescents. I work in rooms in both London Bridge, London, and a garden studio in Godalming.
Some of the issues I am familiar with working with are:
- Depression, anxiety and unexplained sadness
- Work related stresses including changing work environments
- Sexual abuse
- Difficulties related to food and eating
- The complexities of becoming a mother
- Grief and loss
- Relocation and immigration
- Issues of gender identity and sexual preferences
- Relationship issues – including divorce and separation
- Transitions from one life stage to another eg leaving school to the next stage, or moving out of home, or starting at university

Training, qualifications & experience
I have a PGDip in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy gained from WPF Therapy (Accredited by Roehampton University). This is a theoretical and clinical qualification requiring many hours of clinical experience, completed over 4 years.
I have extensive experience in working with both adults and older adolescents in a range of different settings including the NHS, charities and private practice both in the UK and overseas.
Being a psychodynamic psychotherapist means that together we work with your current dilemmas and have in mind your whole life and the important relationships you have had. Together we will work towards you having a greater understanding of yourself and your world.
