Penny Mitchell

BSc PGDipPsych mBACP mBPS

Psychotherapist.

I am a qualified (PGDipPsych) and registered (mBACP, mBPS) Psychotherapist. I have over ten years of experience in both the NHS and private practice in helping adults and young people with all kinds of difficulties, including anxiety, panic attacks, depression, relationship difficulties, low self-esteem, family struggles, perfectionism, low energy, ruminating thoughts, among more.

 

As an Integrative Psychotherapist with a PGDip in Integrative Psychotherapy and an Advanced Diploma in Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT), I have trained in several psychological models and techniques and I customise my approach according to the client's individual needs. My practice was born from the desire to help people feel fulfilled, empowered and autonomous in their lives.
 
Seven years of professional psychological training has provided expertise in both short and long-term models, allowing me the ability to draw upon a range of evidence-based approaches in my work, including Cognitive-Behavioural, Person-centred therapy, Narrative,  Psychodynamic, and Counselling for Depression (CfD).

 
Given the depth and scope of my training, I have the ability to apply different approaches dependent upon what's most helpful to you. In this way, my practice fits around who you are and what you need.

 

I work full-time in London (Marylebone) and Surrey (Walton-on-Thames). I also offer online or telephone therapy sessions.
