LAPTEVA PSYCHOTHERAPY

Private Psychotherapy in English and Swedish















How can psychotherapy help you?

If you’re struggling with anxiety, anger or depression, experiencing difficulties at work or in your relationship, or finding it hard to cope with the challenges of life in general, and would like to understand more about the causes of your state of mind and how to bring about lasting change, psychotherapy can provide a unique space in which to do so. Working through difficult thoughts and feelings together, within the safety of a caring and professional therapeutic relationship, can be a life changing experience by unleashing wellbeing and creativity.

If you are curious and would like to explore this avenue further please get in touch via email and we will arrange an initial consultation meeting – an opportunity to find out more about each other and how we might work together. This meeting lasts for about 60 minutes. If you decide to continue we will then meet once or twice a week for 50 minutes.

Everything we share is confidential.

About me

I am a psychodynamic psychotherapist working with individuals on both an open-ended and time-limited basis. I work with adults and adolescents in both English and Swedish and have specific experience of working with anxiety, depression, addiction, trauma, eating disorders, relationship difficulties, self harm, loss, and issues relating to sexuality and identity. My educational background, beyond my clinical training, lies in literature, art and philosophy. My academic grounding and professional experience in the arts industry, have undoubtedly influenced my personal and professional development as a therapist, including the ethical valence and clinical importance I place on remaining sensitive to the psychosocial context – class, race, gender, sexuality, ethnicity – in which the person exists. I have published numerous papers on psychoanalytic theory and have several years of clinical experience working for charities, schools and the NHS.

Under present circumstances, I am offering sessions online and on the phone. I operate a sliding scale for fees and do have some low-fee places available.
