Sandra ChittickIntegrative psychotherapist
Hi I'm Sandra and I am an integrative counsellor -that means I work with you to look at how you are currently feeling and, sometimes look at the past to bring understanding to the present. I can offer you a confidential space to voice your thoughts and, together, we can can look for ways to process and understand them. You may already know what you want from therapy or you may feel that something is not quite right but you’re not sure what. Perhaps you’re looking for help to make sense of your current feelings. Maybe you're feeling painful emotions or facing difficult decisions. Perhaps you want to improve relationships or get a better understanding of yourself or others. You might be feeling unsettled due to bereavement, work related issues, separation or health. Or you may want to help to cope with stress and anxiety. I am here to listen and support you, helping you to find your own solutions.
Counselling is a way to bring clarity and understanding to your thoughts and feelings. I think of psychotherapy as a conversation where we can explore what’s going on for you and bring order to your thoughts. Together, we can tailor therapy that suits your needs. I can provide long or short-term therapy and I use a range of techniques to help you move forward or reach your goal.
I’ve been working in a therapeutic setting since 2017 and I currently work in an adult addiction centre, a school and at a crisis helpline, as well as my own private practice. I currently practice in Battersea, Clapham Junction London SW11 1EH. Due to Covid restrictions most of my practice is virtual. I have experience working with addiction, bereavement, anxiety, cultural issues, depression, abuse, self-harm, relationship issues, family issues, educational issues and work related issues. I also work with self-esteem and confidence issues. Prior to training as a counsellor I worked in The City of London. I have lived and worked in many countries and have much life experience in different cultures.
