with friends...or family?
Are you unhappy, worried or lacking confidence?
Perhaps your life is not turning out as you had hoped?
Psychotherapy is a safe place to explore your concerns.My name is Barbara Faden. I am an experienced and registered psychotherapist, counsellor and Jungian Analyst. My consulting room is conveniently based in NW6, West Hampstead near Swiss Cottage in North West London. Here you can feel free to talk about your thoughts and feelings in a safe, private, confidential and supportive setting. DURING THE COVID-19 PERIOD, I AM WORKING WITH PEOPLE ONLINE. I will be returning to my consulting room in NW6 when I feel it is safe for all concerned.
Some people come for help with specific issues. Others find therapy useful for gaining perspective on the past, to help make better decisions in the present and to open up possibilities for the future.
A key aim of psychotherapy or analysis is to help you gain a greater sense of what it feels like to be you - to increase self awareness and to live more fully.
Why talk to a therapist?
You may find therapy helpful if you are experiencing:
It may seem daunting to open up about yourself. Perhaps you feel fearful of what you might discover. These concerns are normal. However, reaching out for help is a step towards making important and positive changes in your life - right now and for the future.
Therapy is an individual experience. A significant element is the working relationship that develops between you and your therapist. For this reason, I invite you to email or ring me at 07709 087745 to discuss your current concerns or to arrange an initial consultation. An initial meeting or two should give you an idea of how we might work together. There is a charge for these sessions, but no commitment to continue. To learn more, see working together.
