Charlene Shoot-16

Psychodynamic Counsellor – Life Coach

Qualifications / Experience:
I am a qualified Psychodynamic Counsellor with a particular focus on sex and relationships through my additional training in psychosexual therapy at COSRT. I also work with clients on a range of difficulties to include trauma, anxiety, abuse, stress, feelings of confusion and a host of other difficulties. I work as an individual  and couples counsellor both in Dartford and as part of ChAT services in Marylebone. For clients seeking a quicker, targeted approach to dealing with a particular issue I can also offer coaching sessions.

My approach to therapy
I work using both the psychodynamic model which provides a space for my clients and I to look at how their experiences in past relationships/situations has influenced some of their current feelings and behaviour. I also use a more directive psychosexual / psychoeducational approach when dealing with sex and relationship issues. I have supported individuals and couples with a range of relationship-related difficulties to include breakdown in communication, loss of sexual desire, arousal concerns, erectile dysfunction, finding and sustaining a loving relationship and many more. 

My role is to facilitate a safe space for clients (and their partner, if couple therapy), to explore desires, expectations, disappointment etc and to work on a positive way forward.
