Christine HopfgartenIntegrative psychotherapist
I am an experienced Psychotherapist, EMDR Practitioner, CBT Therapist and Counsellor, having worked in a variety of NHS and private health services, including the Trauma Service of the London Fire Brigade.
Most people will experience some psychological difficulties in their life, loose a sense of identity, or simply feel "stuck" where they are and find it impossible to move forward. I am here to help you through your difficulties, help you find a different way of being and guide you when needed. Sometimes this might involve gaining a deeper understanding and other times this involves using different techniques or making important changes in your life.
As a therapist, I am here to make you feel listened to, take you seriously and respect you as well as offering my professional experience and knowledge.
I offer and have over 10 years of experience in treating a wide range of psychological difficulties and conditions including anxiety, depression, anger and low self-esteem.
I specialise in treating trauma, addictions and helping clients who are experiencing relationship difficulties.
This can include having problems with intimacy, trust or low self-esteem. It might also show itself as a sense of not fitting in or feeling anxious when around others and having difficulties having fulfilling friendships or intimate relationships.
I believe that everyone should have access to the right therapist for their individual needs, without being limited by location and without needing to travel to and from appointments. Online therapy is convenient, highly effective and very accessible. Online Therapy is like face to face therapy, but happens through video calls using a secure video platform (such as Skype).
I offer different kinds of Online Therapy and always discuss the best treatment option with my clients.
