Natalija Rascotina

I am a psychotherapist with experience working within the NHS, private practice and the voluntary sector. The aim of my practice is to work with clients in total confidentiality in order to establish the source of their difficulties and the most effective ways of solving them. I believe that once you have gained insight into the problem, it is easier to work together to make changes and develop coping strategies, leading to a more fulfilling life. Over a number of sessions, psychotherapy can help you learn more about yourself, as well as break harmful patterns of thinking and behaviour.


As we proceed with the therapy I will be tailoring interventions to your individual needs, using the following approaches: Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) or Family Therapy. I believe that all people are capable of making changes in their lives. Feeling stuck is often a signal of necessity to change how we approach a problem. We will work together on examining what is no longer working in your current circumstances, and find the most helpful ways for you to live a full and meaningful life in line with who you are.



Experience


I completed clinical training in the most respected British training institutions in the field, and I am accredited by several professional bodies. 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 working in one of London’s therapeutic communities, where severely affected individuals live alongside clinicians for days at a time, allowed me to develop deepest understanding of psychological and emotional processes that are available to a clinician.
