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) - Wednesday afternoon and evening

  • London Bridge (between Borough & London Bridge station) - Thursday lunchtime (from May 2018)

  • Wimbledon (5-10 mins walk from Wimbledon station, and within easy reach of SW London, Clapham Junction, Putney etc.) - Monday lunchtime and Saturday morning

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 practicing psychotherapy since early 2009. 

I work with individual adults (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 can offer a 12-16 session block to address specific issues (e.g. anxiety and/or depression).  

I am registered with the UKCP  and BACP, 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.
