Welcome to the website of Paul Amundsen Counselling and Psychotherapy
I am an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist working mainly in the Kings Cross/Camden area of London and some mornings at Beckenham, southeast London. I provide counselling and psychotherapy to adult individuals and couples, and supervision to counsellors and psychotherapists.
If you are experiencing depression, anxiety, troubling thoughts and feelings or have personal relationship or work related problems, you are invited to telephone or email to make an appointment.
How Can Counselling and Psychotherapy Help?
Both counselling and psychotherapy can address a range of issues, which may include:
- Low self-esteem
- Sexual and Relationship Problems
- Obsessions and Compulsions
- Addictive Behaviour
- Life and Career Decisions
I provide a safe confidential space to explore the hidden thoughts and feelings that underlie anxiety, depression and other psychological problems. I do not offer a quick, pain free solution to your problems. The aim is to develop your capacity to contain and reflect on painful feeling to enable you to think, work and relate to others in a more satisfying way.
Counselling or Psychotherapy?
Counselling generally addresses specific problems, helping you to think and get a clearer perspective on your feelings and any important decision you might have to make. Psychotherapy explores how we manage painful and distressing states of mind, which over time can lead to a deeper understanding of self and relationships with others.
I offer clinical supervision to counselling and psychotherapy practitioners and trainees.
I also offer group supervision to organisations and training courses.
I have a Diploma in Supervision awarded by the Gestalt Centre.
