Ildiko Victoria Szatmari Psychodynamic psychotherapist , SE1

“Being a full human is difficult, frightening, and problematic.” (A. Maslow)


Welcome to a safe place to talk 


There are many reasons why people reach out for help. 


It may be connected with relationship difficulties, feeling lonely, suffering a bereavement, experiencing anxiety, panic attacks, struggling with depression, trauma, anger, low self-esteem, or work issues. 


Sometimes there is nothing specific to name, more an awareness of feeling lost, stuck or unable moving on.

I can offer sessions in the morning, during the day and evenings in my private practice located at London Bridge, Blackheath and Eltham within close proximity of public transport links. 




I provide both long-term open ended psychotherapy and short-term focussed therapy (12 sessions). 


In addition, I am able to offer psychotherapy sessions in both English and German language. 


Below there are some of the reasons why you might wish to contact me, areas of therapy I work with:
