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

Margery Craig

I am a UKCP registered psychoanalytic psychotherapist for adults and a BACP registered and accredited psychodynamic counsellor for children and adolescents. In my private practice I offer psychoanalytic psychotherapy for adults, and psychodynamic counselling for adolescents and children.

I offer ongoing sessions, weekly or more frequently – these can be on an open ended or a time limited basis. I have experience working in the third sector as a therapist and supervisor, as well as within an adult specialist NHS service. I believe that working with young people, enriches my work with adults and vice versa, having until recently, alongside my established private practice, worked as a lead therapist in a state education setting seeing children and young people with complex social and emotional needs. I continue to supervise in that setting.

Psychoanalytic psychotherapy with Margery

A psychoanalytic/psychodynamic approach takes the unconscious into account, and offers a therapeutic setting in which you can put words to difficult thoughts and feelings through the exploration not just of current difficulties, but of patterns of behaviour, relationships, family history, memories, dreams and significant events, which might lead to a greater self-understanding and acceptance.

While some treatments emphasise symptom removal as the focus of treatment, the analytic approach aims to give you time to think more deeply about the causes of your distress, and to build your own unique solutions.
