Dr Kimberley CarterPsychotherapy in Richmond – Gaining an understanding of how you feel, or how you behave or respond towards other people will help you make healthier decisions about how you want to live your life

People seek therapy for all kinds of reasons, and my aim is to help clients make sense of feelings they do not understand.  Gaining an understanding of how you feel, or how you behave or respond towards other people means that you will have a choice about how you want to live your life. Whereas not being conscious of why you act or respond in a certain way means you will continue to act in the same (unhelpful) way, and very likely will continue to feel unhappy and unfulfilled. Recognising that there is a problem which is affecting your life in a negative way is the first step to doing something about it. Then finding the right professional to help you achieve what you want is crucially important.

I qualified initially as a counsellor and subsequently as a psychoanalytic psychotherapist, and underwent a lengthy analysis myself during the process.  I have many years of experience working as a therapist in private practice, and previously in an agency setting and within the NHS. I also work as a supervisor in private practice, and have previously managed counselling services located within the London area.
