About me and my therapy practice
I am Octavia Landy, MA. I am an integrative psychotherapist trained at The Minster Centre in London. I hold a Diploma in Integrative Counselling and an Advanced Diploma/MA in Integrative Psychotherapy.
My style is to work with a client using a relational foundation. I am personally drawn to existential and humanistic theories, I believe all humans can feel unsettled if our basic needs are threatened or unmet and we all sometimes wonder ‘why am I here?’ I call on psychodynamic, object relations and attachment style theories and I am trained in noticing the body in psychotherapy and may tune in to how a client may hold themselves, or their breathing patterns.
My aim is to walk alongside and witness my clients as we explore their world and perhaps I can lend a new perspective and observe recurring patterns.
Sessions are always 50 minutes in duration and will be at the same time and place each week. I work from home in St Leonards and online, with in-person sessions coming soon to London.
I work from home in St Leonards. I have a dog and a cat so if you have allergies or phobias please let me know in advance.
I also offer sessions on Zoom.
in person sessions coming soon in London.
My first session
It can be daunting to think about talking to someone for the first time, and wondering how to find the right person. Perhaps you are feeling stuck, anxious or unhappy or just ‘not yourself’. Maybe a life event has happened and you don’t know how to navigate it yourself.
If you would like to know more about how I work and potentially book a session, please go to the contact form and drop me a line. We can then arrange a first meeting and take from there. At that initial assessment we can discuss what has brought you to therapy and make a plan together.
Therapy can be life changing, and the aim is to empower you to be able to navigate those trickier times and be curious about yourself and what makes you tick.
