To have got to the stage that you are looking at therapist's websites, you might be feeling that life isn't what you want it to be, and that therapy might offer a way forward.  Perhaps you are struggling with depression, low self-esteem, anxiety, or relationship problems (or a combination of these).  But emotional distress comes in many different forms - see the pages 'About therapy' for more on this.  Why not get in touch to explain in your own words what you want help with?  I would love to hear from you.  My contact details are to the right of each page on my website.

Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy - the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.

A little bit about me

My name is Helen Cordery, and I am a UKCP-registered attachment-based psychoanalytic psychotherapist.  I offer counselling and psychotherapy, via short term (time-limited) work or on-going sessions. I trained at The Bowlby Centre in London, and have been practicing psychotherapy since early 2009. 

I work with individual adults (but not couples or groups) on an open-ended basis, with the aim of enabling you to permanently change your life for the better.  Looking for shorter term input? I offer Dynamic Interpersonal Therapy (DIT - a 16 session therapy programme) for anxiety and/or depression.  Struggling with an eating disorder? Check out the help I can offer with different forms of eating distress.

I am registered with the UKCP  and BACP, and comply with their Codes of Conduct.
