Psychodynamic Counselling is one of the major traditions within contemporary talking therapy, helping us to achieve insight and understanding regarding our difficulties - individuals can gently unravel, and work through deep-rooted feelings to resolve those issues and feel more at ease.


This therapeutic intervention is broadly based on the theory that interpersonal issues are to some extent a result of repressed emotions or negative life experiences.​ The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) recommends this type of therapy for anxiety, depression and personal difficulties.

Maja Andersen (MBACP) - Counselling Therapist


Before training as a psychodynamic therapist, I worked in the field of finance, establishing a career as a corporate accountant for large organisations in the South East of England.  


Volunteer-work with adults suffering from substance misuse and survivors of sexual trauma paved the way into the field of psychology and the helping profession. This ultimately guided a decision to pursue this passion fully by embarking on further academic studies.
