Jeanne BesterPsychodynamic psychotherapist
My role is to help you make sense of the issues that have led you to seek therapy. I do this by providing a safe place for you to bring the concerns that are troubling you, helping you to explore your thoughts, experiences and feelings, some of which may feel overwhelming. Together we work to consider both your presenting symptoms, such as anxiety and depression, as well as their possible underlying causes, thinking about your present situation to see how it may be connected to events from the past.

Types of therapy
I aim to offer affordable psychotherapy and we would agree the fee before any commitment to therapy is made.
Training and qualifications
I am a qualified psychodynamic psychotherapist. I undertook my professional training at WPF Therapy, one of the leading academic and clinical institutions in the UK and practiced for several years within the WPF Therapy clinic in London. I am a registered member of the BPC (British Psychoanalytic Council) and the FPC (Foundation for Psychotherapy and Counselling) and follow their strict ethical codes and professional standards of confidentiality and practice.
I also trained and worked as a Samaritan providing support to people who were distressed, despairing or suicidal.
Before practising as a counsellor and psychotherapist, I worked for many years in business and have an awareness of how challenging and demanding working life can be.
