Laurentiu TrandafirPsychoanalytic psychotherapist
Hello, I am Laurentiu, a psychotherapist working with people at The Guild of Psychotherapists in Southwark (SE1), in my private practice in Abbey Wood (SE2) and online.
Do you want to talk to someone impartial about your difficulties? If you feel stuck in your life, psychoanalytic psychotherapy will help you to bring about change. I believe everyone should be listened to especially when experiencing emotional distress. I offer a safe and confidential space to voice your thoughts, fears, and concerns, where the truth of your experience will be valued. Together we can work to support your capacity to reflect and deal with difficulties.
I specialise in philosophical and phenomenological approaches to the meaning of life, in addition to psychoanalytic perspectives on human suffering. I work with specific mental conditions such as depression, anxiety, various forms of trauma, as well as broader questions around identity, sexuality, and relationships. I draw on my experience in private practice, as part of the Clinic of the Guild of Psychotherapists, and many years of study of psychoanalytic theory.
I am available weekdays both daytime and evening sessions, offering limited time and long-term therapy.
