Tatiana KuznetsovaIntegrative psychotherapist
Have you been feeling anxious, stressed, burned out or overwhelmed?
Are you currently struggling at work or in your important relationships, and unsure how to make things better?
Are you finding yourself behaving in the same habitual ways, recreating the same problematic situations in your life?
Do you wish you could change troubling emotions and thoughts and live a more balanced and fulfilling life?
Psychotherapy can help you with all these things and more. It provides a safe and confidential space for you to talk about your issues and concerns, without fear of judgement, and being truly heard.
We will explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviours so you can develop a better understanding of yourself and of others. This will increase your capacity to deal with challenges, both in the present and the future.
I was born and raised in Moscow and moved to the United States at the age of twenty in search of better opportunities. I paid my way through the university by working as a waitress and joined booming financial services industry upon graduation. After a while I started noticing that it was people, not financial markets or instruments, that interested me, so after 7 years I moved to France to get my MBA at INSEAD so that I could switch into a profession which is more people focussed. After graduation I moved to the UK and started working in Human Resources, the profession which allowed me to address the human aspects of work and to support people along their work journeys.
I have always loved listening to people’s stories and finding ways to help, so I decided to study psychotherapy in order to be able to understand others and myself better and learn how to help people at a deeper, more personal level. I received Master’s Degree (Distinction) and Post-Graduate Certificate in Integrative Psychotherapy and Counselling from Regent’s University, London.
I am a life-longer learner and there are always a few books which I am reading at the same time. I look after my physical well-being by practicing Bikram yoga and being a regular in local Pilates and Barrecore studios. I am a committed mother of two teenage children who always push me to be a better version of myself.
How I work
As an integrative therapist I draw on a wide range of theories and practices to inform how I work with my clients (as opposed to using a single approach). I work with clients with a wide range of issues, including stress, burnout, anxiety, depression, life transitions, work and career issues, identity, life purpose, relationships and sexual issues, low self-esteem, ‘imposter’ syndrome, addictions, trauma, bereavement, panic attacks, amongst others.
I have 25 years of corporate experience which means that I understand challenges and pressures of the professional life and the importance of work relationships. My professional experience, including working extensively in the HR function, combined with my psychotherapy training, has helped me gain an insight into how our psychological makeup and past experiences influence how we behave at work and develop skills to help my clients resolve current difficulties, achieve career and life goals and contribute to their fullest potential.
Every client and their situation are wholly unique, and I will work with each client in a bespoke way, tailoring my approach to your needs and therapy goals. This may include working to understand your past and how this influenced your thought and behavioural patterns, exploring your current life situation and working on a particular area, be that your important relationships, career or health, and helping you to find tools to cope with a specific challenge you may be faced with. Usually therapy work touches upon past, present and future, and includes a combination of topics, approaches, focal points and tools.
I tend to work in a solutions-focused way, equally, I believe that there is value in reflection, gaining self-awareness and connecting to our true selves.
We will work together on making the changes you would like to see (and on accepting what is). Ultimately, therapy is about developing new perspectives and behaviours which will enable you to be more adaptive, resilient and lead a more meaningful, balanced and fulfilling life.
It is a privilege to be someone people trust and open up to, and I find incredible purpose and fulfilment in being able to help people to, using Nietzsche's words, become who they are.
I attend regular professional supervision and abide by UKCP and BACP Ethical Codes.
I offer a complimentary introductory telephone or online consultation of up to 30 minutes to discuss your concerns and how we can work together to address them. This is also an opportunity for you to ask questions and decide if I am the right therapist for you.
