Sarah CunninghamPsychodynamic psychotherapist
My name is Sarah Cunningham and I run Therapy South London, which provides psychotherapy to clients experiencing a range of emotional issues, trauma, relationship issues, narrcistic abuse and anxiety. I believe that my clients are the experts in their own lives and have the capacity to fulfil their own potential.
I offer individual sessions with adults and young people aged 18+ and provide short term counselling and long-term psychotherapy. I also offer weekly online psychotherapy via Zoom during Covid 19, and for individuals who regularly travel or who may have mobility issues. My working model is client-centred and integrative but drawing primarily from psychodynamic theories of human development and the therapeutic process, but I will always tailor sessions to your situation.
Painful emotions can leave us feeling powerless, isolated or unheard in our communities. For some, therapy might be the first time they feel heard and understood and I provide a non-judgemental collaborative space where individuals can explore thought patterns and behaviours so a deeper understanding can be reached. This can allow us to see situations or dynamics within relationships from a different perspective and can help to gain a deeper awareness of destructive or unhelpful patterns.
I am experienced working with clients online and I have completed a BACP accredited CPD in telephone, online and e-counselling and my public liability insurance covers me for such work.
