Dr Ajay Khandelwal Psychoanalytic psychotherapist , SE1

Book now

I have over 25 years experience of working in mental health with both men and women. My first job was working in a therapeutic community for adults who had moved out of long term psychiatric hospitals and experienced severe and enduring psychosis.  I have also run a large drug and alcohol treatment service and have several years experience of working with all forms of addictions. I am the clinical director of a London psychotherapy service and have experience of working with people with a range of difficulties.  I am currently working with early and mid career high achieving professionals experiencing extreme anxiety in and out of work.  I work with both the aim of reducing immediate symptoms, as well as exploring underlying issues. I am happy to speak over the phone to discuss if we could work together.

I am an honorary psychotherapist at the Guild of Psychotherapy low fee clinic and the Islington Mind Psychosis project.


Training and qualifications

I have completed a four year intensive training in adult psychoanalytical psychotherapy training at the Guild of Psychotherapists.  This included seeing patients twice weekly for two years.  I am a registered member of the BACP.

I have had a long standing interest in family dynamics and completed a PhD in this subject in 1999 from Essex University.

I have BA (Hons) in Politics, Philosophy and Economics from Oxford University.
