About Me

My name is Sofia Villalobos and I am a qualified psychodynamic counsellor and psychotherapist. I have a BA in Psychology, and a MSc in Psychodynamic Counselling and Psychotherapy from Birkbeck, University of London. I have experience working in the charitable sector, as well as private practice.

I am member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP), and I adhere to their ethical framework and confidentiality.

The Process

Embarking on a therapeutic process is a big step and
It is important that you choose the right counsellor.
Here you will find some information to help you decide whether you think
this might be the right approach for you and if we can work together.

How can I help you?

Psychodynamic psychotherapy can help you to make lasting changes to your relationships and emotional wellbeing.

It brings awareness and understanding to the issues you are struggling with, and to the influence that previous experiences can have on those difficulties.

We will explore links between your past and present addressing some of the roots of your difficulties not just the symptoms. It can also help with sudden challenges in life such as loss and bereavement.

How it works

I will provide with a safe and non-judgemental space where we can explore the issues you are finding challenging.

My areas of expertise are the following:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Loss
  • Bereavement
  • Relationships
  • Work related issues
  • I can offer sessions in English and Spanish

How to start

Send me an email and I will get back to you as soon as possible to arrange a phone consultation.
This could be followed by a 50 minutes initial meeting where we will decide whether psychodynamic psychotherapy is appropriate for you, and if we feel we might work well together.
If we decide to continue, we will have weekly meetings of 50 minutes each at the same arranged time and day of the week.
