Arabel Charlaff

I’m an accredited and experienced psychodynamic psychotherapist and counsellor. I trained at WPF Therapy, one of the UK’s leading academic and clinical institutions for psychotherapy.  I worked for several years within the NHS at the City and Hackney Specialist Psychotherapy Service, and currently work within the student counselling service at Queen Mary University.  I teach on the WPF diploma course in psychodynamic theory and practice.  I’m a member of UKCP (UK Council for Psychotherapy) and FPC (Foundation for Psychotherapy and Counselling) and adhere to these associations’ professional codes of ethics.

I have experience of working with people from a wide range of backgrounds and cultures and across all age groups. It’s my belief that many issues stem from difficulties in relating, and for this reason I see relationships as central to my work.

I offer a warm, supportive and non-judgemental space in which you can begin to understand your experiences, modify old patterns and identify new possibilities.

I practise in Hackney.  During the coronavirus outbreak, I am also offering phone/Zoom sessions.
