City Road Therapy – Professional face-to-face & online Therapy in London

Jennifer Trak

Hi, I’m Jen (she/her/hers). I’m a BACP registered therapist offering counselling and psychotherapy in London, both online and in-person. I support people to deepen their understanding and acceptance of themselves in a way that honours who they are as a person.

To get a full understanding of where people come from, it’s important for me to understand current issues in the context of past experiences and how cultural, societal or familial pressures have impacted you. I’m interested in engaging people as their true selves and working together to create a safe, authentic and vulnerable connection. This will help us explore who you are and where you come from – your personal circumstances, identities and values.

Integrative therapy with Jen

My approach is integrative with a strong relational emphasis, and I’m influenced by various theories, philosophies and modalities including ACT (acceptance and commitment therapy), mindfulness, relational-cultural therapy and existential therapy.

The foundation of how I work starts with psychodynamic theory – working with childhood experiences, the personal and collective unconscious and attachment style. No single approach or theory will work for everyone, which is why a more integrative, flexible approach works well to fit a person’s unique needs, allowing them to explore every part of their inner world in their own way.

As a therapist, I’m interactive, open, curious and collaborative – I’m not a ‘blank canvas’. I show up as myself in the therapy room and own my cultural perspectives and experiences. I grew up in Vancouver, Canada as a child of immigrants and have lived in the UK for 12 years. I approach all of my work with particular attention to the social and cultural context, paying close attention to the quality of our connection as people.
