My name is Pablo and I am an accredited Psychotherapist and Counsellor through the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.
My practice is based in Old Street (Ongea Ltd) and Kings Cross (The Gestalt Centre) in central London and I offer afternoon and evening appointments, Tuesday through Thursday.
My psychotherapy fee is 70 per session and I offer some lower cost spaces.
My practice is LGBTQI affirmative and I support the social model for disability.
As a therapist with over 20 years experience, I have developed a pragmatic, active, transparent and collaborative style of working, individually catered to you and your specific issues and concerns. Therapy aims to increase a client s self-awareness of how we can be disconnected or cut off from aspects of our psychological, body and emotional experience. This can be experienced symptomatically as anxiety, depression, low self-worth or self-esteem, and its impact observed in how we navigate, avoid or confront our relationships with others, compulsive behaviours and how we view and treat ourselves (critical voice, perfectionism or neglecting needs for our personal wellbeing).
Our attachment style, childhood experiences of trauma, neglect or abuse and adolescent experiences of bullying, bereavement or loss can result in becoming internally disconnected. Together we can discover your particular dynamics and the psychological tools, life-skills and new, creative ways of thinking that will enable you to make the real difference you want to see in yourself and in your life.
If you would like to find out how I can help you with your specific concerns, please do email me or call with your initial inquiry or make an appointment (details are at the top of this page).
