London Psychologist – Dr Lola Perez-Gavino
(offering sessions near Regents Park at Bentick House, Bolsover Street). I also offer online video therapy.
CBT & Therapy for Anxiety, OCD & Trauma
The ultimate goal of therapy is to help you feel better in the areas that you are unhappy about. In our work together, we will draw a map of your problems. Everybody has a story of who they are and what is important to them. We often follow the path that is most familiar to us and it may be difficult to see other routes on the way. I would like to explore with you new paths that may be less obvious, paths that would bring you closer to the kind of person you would like to be, and to live by the values that are important to you.
I can help people with a variety of difficulties, including depression and low mood, as well as anxiety disorders (generalised anxiety disorder, panic disorder, agoraphobia, social anxiety and specific phobias), and I keep up to date with research and training in the most effective interventions for difficulties in these areas.
I have extensive experience of working with children, young people and adults with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), which is one of my areas of special interest.
I can help with PTSD and trauma symptoms, which are common after people experience frightening and/or overwhelming events or circumstances in their lives. The approaches I use are Trauma Focused CBT and EMDR.
I also have extensive experience in working with children, young people and adults with a diagnosis of Autistic Spectrum Disorder, which is something I feel passionate about.
