Janet Kaplan

Our work is for you to observe your emotional life and understand what drives you. You are then in a position to decide if you want to change your response to life or not. My orientation is psychodynamic which involves facilitating a deeper understanding of your thoughts and feelings.

I am a Senior Counsellor in the National Health Service (NHS) and worked as an Honorary Psychotherapist in Adult Mental Health at Guys and St Thomas’ Hospital, London. I supervise trainee counsellors in the voluntary sector and experienced clinicians in the NHS. Alongside my private practice I have presented workshops for GPs on counselling.

I specialise in depression and anxiety, life changes, anger, bereavement and relationship issues. I work with individual adults rather than with couples. My work is either open-ended or time limited. I also offer 16 sessions to help you understand and improve how you relate to others.

Before training in psychodynamic work with adults, I spent 15 years in the corporate world. I have a BA Hons from Leeds University and a Post Graduate Diploma in French from Strasbourg University, France. I am an approved Dynamic Interpersonal Therapy Practitioner, hold a Master of Science in Psychodynamic Counselling from Birkbeck College and a Foundation Degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy from Regent's College, London. I am a regular attendee on the Lecture Course at the Institute of Psychoanalysis.

I am an an approved provider of psychological therapies for various health care providers and am an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.
