Rebeca Robertson

Psychodynamic Counsellor

I blend my skills in psychology and psychotherapy working with people from a diverse background and all ages with various issues: eating disorders, psycho-somatic conditions, depression, anxiety, work dissatisfaction, inability to form satisfactory relationships and gender issues. I can speak Spanish and Portuguese.

I work from a psychodynamic model helping you to understand and resolve your difficulties by increasing awareness of your inner world and exploring how these influence both past and present relationships. Therapy helps you gain awareness of unhelpful patterns of thinking in a non-judgmental and safe environment so you can understand and change them.

The experiences that we encounter in life and our personality shape how we use emotions to defend against pain/anxiety and how we relate to the outside world. The work is about understanding obstructive patterns (i.e. defenses) in a collaborative way between the client and the therapist and through this achieve change.
