Counselling and Psychotherapy in Waterloo/Southwark, South London
Sarah Bolton, MBACP / UKCP, counsellor & psychotherapist in Waterloo & Southwark, South London.
I am a BACP registered counsellor and UKCP registered psychoanalytic psychotherapist in Waterloo /Southwark, South London. I am registered with AXA PPP Healthcare, Vitality Health, WPA & Aviva insurance companies.
I offer counselling and psychotherapy in Waterloo, (Borough of Lambeth), South London and have my consulting room in Union Street. I offer psychotherapy to adult individuals on an open-ended basis or, if necessary, for shorter term work with the aim of enabling you to enhance your life and to live it more fully.
As a result of Covid19 and the need for social distancing, I am conducting all my sessions either by phone or video conferencing until such time that the government deems these measures are no longer necessary.
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.
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.
