Dr Sebastian Eisenberg, CPsychol, PsychD, MSc
I am a Counselling Psychologist chartered by the British Psychological Society as well as registered with the Health and Care Professions Council, and I adhere to their professional code of practice and ethics.
My therapeutic approach is integrative, relational and client-centred. As a counselling psychologist I am trained and experienced in complementary psychological approaches: humanistic/existential, cognitive-behavioural (CBT) and psychodynamic. I am, therefore, able to apply and integrate them tailored to your needs and goals.
I work holistically considering body and mind, culture and context, heart and soul. I believe there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach to psychological help, and experience and research shows that people are more likely to grow in a genuinely accepting, empathic and trusting relationship.
I aim to understand my clients’ experiences as a fellow human being with patience and in a non-judgemental way. Based on your goals and hopes, we work together on finding a way forward, making meaningful changes as well as developing acceptance and compassion for what cannot be changed.
I have a special interest Health Psycholgy. I am trained and experienced in supporting people to make health-related changes (e.g. weight, smoking) or to better adjust and cope with disabilities, long-term conditions or life-threatening illness such as chronic pain, sight loss or cancer.
I have worked for voluntary organisations (disability, HIV) since 2008 and for the NHS since 2010 in clinical settings such as
Primary Care (GP surgeries, IAPT, stop smoking)
Secondary Care (CMHT, personality disorder, complex care, psychosis)
Clinical Health Psychology (chronic pain, cancer, weight management)
