Conrad PlentiePsychodynamic therapist
My name is Conrad and I am a psychodynamic Counsellor and Therapist working with adults and older adults in the North London area. I provide a confidential non-judgemental space where clients can in due course feel safe to talk freely about whatever they have been struggling with. Working psychodynamically (although other techniques are often employed), which means we can explore the often unconscious elements of your thinking, behaviour and feelings with a view to helping you to hear yourself. This in turn should assist you in locating your suffering from a different position. I place a lot of emphasis on the working relationship as I believe this establishes mutual trust and lays the foundation for the work to be effective.
I volunteered as a trauma support worker at Transport for London (Tfl) for 13 years, working with members of staff who had experienced traumatic events including person under train incidents and physical abuse. As a Counsellor and Therapist I have worked with clients experiencing various difficulties including: addictions, anger management, anxiety, bereavement, depression, low self esteem, panic attacks, sexual abuse, stress and trauma etc. I provide both short term counselling and open ended therapy according to what the client requires.
I work in private practice and I have worked for MIND in Haringey. I currently volunteer at Highbury Counselling Centre (HCC) where I also carry out clinical assessments.
