DR ANGELA MOONEY IS A CHARTERED COUNSELLING PSYCHOLOGIST USING CBT, PSYCHODYNAMIC AND INTEGRATIVE THERAPY
“The test of good therapy is to continue feeling better, long after therapy has finished”
Welcome to my website.
I am a Chartered Counselling Psychologist with a private practice in Chelsea, West London.
I am an experienced clinician with a number of years of experience in treating anxiety, depression, relationship issues and addiction.
I developed a ground breaking treatment program within the NHS, targeted at people who suffered with difficult- to- treat depression, anxiety, early childhood difficulties and addictive behaviours.
The research, which was conducted over 7 years on the treatment model, showed that over 90% of people who were treated reported reduced anxiety and depression, and a better understanding of the triggers to their problems.
The feedback also highlighted that people want more than just psychological skills from therapy; they also want to have a deep enough understanding of themselves to enable continual change in the future.
I specialise in a blending different types of therapy to help with a number of difficulties simultaneously.
I work with individuals and couples. I trained at the Tavistock Clinic in London in working psychodynamically with couples.
Entering into therapy can be daunting, especially if you struggle to reach out to others for help. I will always speak to you over the phone first, where you can ask as many questions as you need prior to starting.
I HAVE SUCCESSFULLY TREATED MANY PEOPLE WITH COMPLEX EMOTIONAL AND PSYCHOLOGICAL DIFFICULTIES. SOME OF THESE INCLUDE:
Addictive and Compulsive Behaviours
Long Term Grief
Sexual and Psychological Abuse
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
Identity and Sexuality
HOW MANY SESSIONS WILL I NEED?
It may be that brief therapy with a solution focused approach may be suitable for you, if you have a specific short term issue.
This is usually around 15 sessions.
However, it could be that you need a longer term therapy, as your difficulties are more complex and you require time to reflect on how they influence your thinking and behaviours in a number of areas.
This can be discussed in your first session.
