I am a psychotherapist with experience of working in the NHS, the voluntary sector and my own London-based private psychotherapy practice. My mission is to work with people in order to establish the source of their issues and the most effective ways of resolving them. Over time, psychotherapy can help you learn more about yourself, break harmful patterns of thinking and behaviour and assist in developing everyday coping strategies.
The psychotherapy I offer is tailored to an individual’s needs using the following psychotherapy approaches. Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Family Therapy. I strongly believe that everyone is capable of making changes in their lives. Feeling ‘stuck’ is often a sign that we need to change the way in which we face a certain problem. Working together, we examine what is no longer working in your current circumstances, and find the most helpful ways to live a full and meaningful life that is right for you.
I completed my clinical training in some of the most respected British training institutions in the field (AGIP & Tavistock), and I am accredited by several professional bodies (BABCP & BACP). I also participate in ongoing training and undertake continuous professional development. My experience fields range from clinical presentations including depression, anxiety, suicide and complex cases of personality disorders, abuse and psychosis, to helping people who are recovering after hospitalisation. My previous experience of working in one of London’s therapeutic communities — where severely affected individuals live alongside clinicians for days at a time — allowed me to develop the deepest possible understanding of the psychological and emotional processes.
"I felt incredibly supported by Natalija, she has helped me learn to see things clearer, question my assumptions and adopt more helpful and objective ways of looking at things. As a result, I feel much calmer and happier in my life."
"When I came to my first session I was a complete mess. Natalija helped me to understand why am I feeling this way and what contributed to that. This alone felt quite empowering, things started to make sense and I didn't feel like something was wrong with me anymore. I then learned to become my own best friend and ways I can support myself through anything, as well as ways I can deal with my emotions. Thank you so much."
