Zhuo Wang (Reg. MBACP, MSc Counselling Psychology, BSc (Hons) Psychology)
Psychotherapy is an invitation to pause and reflect on what is important to you. It offers a safe and protected space for you to hear and experience yourself in a way that can lead to more self-acceptance, awareness and choice. As your therapist, I will hold and guard this space for you. I will listen to you with warmth, empathy and curiosity, and encourage you to find affirmation in your own voice and solutions.
Psychodynamic therapy recognises contradictions, errors, repetitions, inner conflicts and feelings of ambivalence as inevitable experiences of human existence. They are deserving of our attention as they can point us to unconscious wishes and beliefs. As your therapist, I will listen out for specific elements in your speech that might hold such potential for you. My listening will be respectful of your unique subjectivity and gently trace your particularities as they emerge in your own pace.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a fully qualified and BACP registered counsellor. My background is in psychology, mental health, support work, mentoring and research.
My clinical experience spans over several years of working with adults in talking therapy services, therapeutic communities, mental health organisations, psychiatric units, higher education and schools.
I currently work as a sessional therapist for the Psychosis Therapy Project, a specialist service for people experiencing psychosis, and also co-facilitate a women-only space for the mental health charity Mind.
My private practice is located in Fortis Green (N2), a ward in the Borough of Haringey, between East Finchley and Muswell Hill in North London.
My qualifications include a BSc (Hons) Psychology from the University of Salzburg (Austria), and a MSc Counselling Psychology from City University London (UK). I've been accepted as a Trainee Psychoanalyst by the SITE for Contemporary Psychoanalysis (UK), starting in early 2021.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
