Looking at therapy as a way to make important changes in your life? Perhaps that life isn't what you want it to be, but you don't know how to start to change that?  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.

I also offer supervision for qualified psychotherapists and counsellors. Supervision has always been incredibly important for me in my work, and now I am developing my skills and expertise in providing this form of support myself.

I see clients and supervisees in three London locations:

  • Farringdon (5-10 mins walk from Farringdon station), all day Wednesday - SPACES AVAILABLE

  • London Bridge (between Borough & London Bridge station), Thursday morning/lunchtime - NO SPACES

  • West Norwood (5 mins walk from West Norwood station, 10 mins walk from Tulse Hill station, Monday daytime, Tuesday daytime and evening - SPACES AVAILABLE

    Within easy reach of Brixton, Herne Hill, Tulse Hill, Streatham, Dulwich and surrounding areas)

A little bit about me

My name is Helen Cordery, and I am a UKCP-registered attachment-based psychoanalytic psychotherapist and supervisor.  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 working as a psychotherapist since early 2009. 

I am also in the process of completing a qualification in supervision, so if you are a qualified psychotherapist who is interested in supervision to become more informed about attachment in the clinical setting, do get in touch.

I work with individual adults (not couples, groups or children/young people) on an open-ended basis, with the aim of enabling you to permanently change your life for the better.  

Looking for shorter term, focused input? I can offer a 12-16 session block to address specific issues (e.g. anxiety and/or depression).  

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

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.
