ABOUT MYSELF

DR BARBARA THURGOOD

Dr Barbara Thurgood
Chartered Psychologist & Counsellor

hcpc bps

Welcome. I am Barbara.
I am a Chartered Counselling Psychologist and Counsellor.
I am registered with the British Psychological Society (BPS) and the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).

I work with private individuals who are experiencing emotional distress such as depression, anxiety, loneliness, relationship issues, loss, life transitions and stress of every day life.

I also accept referrals from GPs and other professionals concerned with psychological support. My consulting rooms are conveniently based in Canary Wharf, London Bridge and Hampstead.

In addition to my private practice, I have been a committed volunteer counsellor with AGE UK – the UK’s leading charity dedicated to later life.

' For most of my life, I have been saying things to people and suddenly realising that they hadn’t really understood me.
I never felt that with Barbara.
She really got everything.
I felt that she really was there for me, listening to me very carefully, and cared about the things I was talking about. It was a very positive experience. '

WHAT KIND OF THERAPY DO I OFFER?

  • therapy on a one-to-one  basis
  • brief or longer  term therapeutic programmes
  • a variety of approaches to suit
    your personal needs
  • therapy for different age groups :
  • younger or older adults & couples

WHO CAN BE HELPED?

Some people bring to therapy issues that have never been resolved since their childhood; others may struggle with more recent difficulties. I can work with specific personal or/and professional dilemmas; or just to gain a sense of clarity and ease in everyday life.

In particular, I am experienced in the following areas:

  • anxiety
  • loss & depression
  • relationships
  • self-esteem & confidence
  • stress
  • work & career issues
  • mid-life crisis
  • ageing (loneliness/dependence)
  • illness

While I work with a wide range of issues, I am particularly interested in working with middle-aged and older adults. With these age groups much of my work focuses on feelings related to loss, relationship to time and/or considering how ageing difficulties may affect the way in which one relates to oneself, others and to the world.
