Counselling and Psychotherapy in Waterloo/Southwark, South London
Sarah Bolton, MBACP / UKCP, counsellor & psychotherapist in Waterloo & Southwark, South London.
I am a UKCP registered psychoanalytic psychotherapist and BACP registered counsellor in Waterloo /Southwark, South London. I have been working in private practice for nine years but have also worked in both public and private settings.
I offer counselling and psychotherapy in Waterloo, (Borough of Lambeth), South London and have my consulting room in Union Street, very near Southwark Underground Station. I offer psychotherapy to adult individuals on an open-ended basis or, if necessary, for shorter term work. I am registered with AXA PPP Healthcare, Vitality Health, WPA & Aviva insurance companies. I offer face to face sessions and as we are no longer in a lock down, I do not offer on line sessions.
Counselling and Psychotherapy can help with many different issues, whether it's relationship issues, depression, anxiety, bereavement, stress, redundancy, anger issues, phobias or addiction. Often, there may not be a particular reason for wanting counselling and psychotherapy, but you may feel lost, confused, empty, hopeless, stuck, overwhelmed or just unfulfilled in your life. Talking to someone who is not a family member or friend can free you to be more honest about thoughts and feelings that might be troubling you. It can help you make sense of what’s going on, gain a greater sense of clarity which can facilitate a forward movement in your life, helping you to make make better choices for yourself and to live your life more fully.
I work psychodynamically which means the therapeutic relationship between us is used to gain insight into unconscious (out of awareness) relationship patterns that have evolved since childhood. Memories and other evidence of early relationships are used to make sense of current concerns. Please go to the "about counselling and psychotherapy" tab to see more information.
