Veena Ganapathy Psychodynamic psychotherapist , SE1

I am a qualified psychodynamic psychotherapist with extensive experience of working with people with a wide range of issues. These include bereavement, depression, anxiety, low self-worth and esteem, as well as struggles with sexuality, identity and belonging. Prior to training as a therapist, I worked as an adult mental health social worker in several London boroughs. My academic background is in psychology and social psychology. I am deeply committed to helping individuals enhance understanding of their own psychological distress and give meaning to past experiences and current difficulties. I seek to support my clients in creating meaningful relationships with themselves and others. I work in a boundaried yet compassionate way that attempts to understand present obstacles to growth in relation to earlier patterns and relationships. 


I am a registered member with the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP), the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and the Foundation for Psychotherapy and Counselling (FPC). I am bound by their professional code of ethics and guidelines.
