Bola ShonubiPsychodynamic psychotherapist
In life we may experience problems, difficulties and trauma that are overwhelming and hard to live with. These issues maybe difficult to understand and hard to resolve. I am a warm non-judgemental Psychotherapist who offers to help you to understand the root causes of your difficulties which will hopefully alleviate the overwhelming nature of them and bring hope of change.
Becoming a counsellor was something that I had a great interest in from a very, very early age. I wanted to listen to people, help them understand themselves and ultimately give them hope.
I currently offer therapy from my private practice at Lily House in South Woodford and The Library Rooms, in Leadenhall Street, The City, London. I provide long and short term face to face counselling to individuals who as a result of traumatic life events in childhood and adulthood have felt they have been unable to cope or make sense of life anymore.
I work predominantly within the psychodynamic model of psychotherapy. This type of therapy focuses on revealing the unconscious content of an individual's psyche to help relieve or understand where psychic tension. To bring the unconscious mind into consciousness, this helps individuals to understand their deep rooted feelings. This helps to try and resolve the problems and issues that they are experiencing.
Our psyche can bury into our unconscious painful feelings and memories which are to difficult for the conscious mind to process. As a result of the burying of these painful memories and experiences individuals can sometimes behave in ways which they do not understand. Psychodynamic psychotherapy helps to understand these behaviours and make significant changes in their behaviours.
Individuals who are genuinely interested in exploring themselves and are looking for self knowledge as to why they behave the way they do,as well as symptom relief will benefit most from this type of therapy.
