Sally Stamp

Msc. in Group Analysis MA. in Dramatherapy PG Diploma in Counselling

I offer individual psychoanalytic psychotherapy and group psychotherapy .

I am an experienced UKCP registered Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist with over 15 years of working with people in NHS, voluntary sectors and secure settings. I have many years’ experience of working with people suffering from many different problems.

You might need help with depression, anxiety, childhood abuse, bereavement, drug and alcohol abuse. You could feel stuck in your work, or find that you keep getting into negative relationships, or have other long-term troubling issues.  You might have tried a different therapy in the past and found it useful but feel that you need to look more deeply at what is wrong.

I will offer you an initial meeting to see what help you need and how we could work together.  After this we will meet weekly for 50 minutes.  Usually the therapy will last for over a year but, in some cases, it might be for a shorter, fixed period of time.

I have been working in the field of mental health for last five years. My background in clinical psychology and working with patients with severe and enduring mental health difficulties has provided me with a wealth of experience  in supporting people with complex problems.

I provide safe space for you to freely express your thoughts, feelings, beliefs and values. I invite you to explore and increase awareness about what is troubling you. Understanding and making links between your past and your current issues as well as identifying main themes is an important part of therapy.

Jordana Ickowicz

I am a UKCP accredited Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist in training at The Arbours Association, an organisation borne out of the 1960’s anti psychiatry movement that believes in the importance of seeing the person beneath their symptom and diagnosis. I carry this philosophy close to my heart and into my consulting room where I endeavor not to make assumptions about you but get to know each person’s unique self. I have over a decade of experience working in various capacities in the voluntary, NHS and charity sector supporting vulnerable children and adults. I hold a postgraduate MSc in Developmental Psychoanalytic Psychology from the Anna Freud Centre and one of my main interests lies in the deeply rooted impact of the early parent-infant relationship on our current relationships and the sense we have of ourselves in the world. My knowledge and experience is important to what I am able to offer you but I believe that you have all the knowledge you need to change, you just might need some help in accessing it.
