Integrative Psychotherapy, Arts Therapy and Counselling in Sydenham, South East London
Natalie Kennedy (AdvDip, BA (hons), PGDip, MA, UKCP, HCPC)
My name is Natalie and I am an Integrative Psychotherapist, Arts Therapist and Counsellor. I have worked with children, young people and adults for over 10 years. I see adult clients in my practice in Sydenham, and children, young people and carers/parents across London, Kent and Essex with Local Authorities or Fostering Agencies. I also run courses and training in London and the home counties.
Due to Covid 19 I am currently working in my online space (see below), although I have an office in Sydenham in South East London. Please contact me for further details.
Many people come to counselling and psychotherapy because they are anxious or lonely or depressed and want to 'get rid' of those feelings, and yet no matter what they do, 'they' won't go. Meeting with someone who listens to what you are saying (and perhaps what you cannot say yet), can help to change the intensity of those feelings.
As an integrative psychotherapist and counsellor, I have a range of approaches that I can draw upon so I can tailor the way I work with each person. I believe that everyone has an inherent wisdom, that often gets 'papered' over by their experiences in life. By offering a confidential and non-judgemental environment, I will work with you to reconnect to that part of you, so you can begin to make the changes you want to live a more fulfilled, creative and enlivened life.
I have a particular interest in understanding the unconscious dynamics at play in relationships, as well as the impact of the systems (e.g. familial, socio – economic, cultural and historical) that we live within and which influence the formation of our identity, and how that is impacted when people leave their country of origin to live somewhere else.
