Counselling in London Waterloo, King’s Cross and Chancery Lane

Ernesto Lobera profile photoMy name is Ernesto and I am an experienced British / Spanish, fully qualified and bilingual Counsellor – Psychotherapist. I have over six years of experience working in Private Practice and I specialise in working with adults.

I currently work from three different locations, all based within easy access from Central London or City of London.

My approach

Therapy is a chance to explore issues you can’t talk to anyone else about, no matter how close they may be. My approach is warm and down to earth and I aim to offer a respectful, caring, insightful and confidential service.

It is natural to be anxious if you have not seen a Counsellor – Psychotherapist before, and the initial session is often a chance for us both to assess your understanding and expectations of psychotherapy with no obligation.

The different schools that I integrate are Psycho-dynamic, Attachment Based and Person Centred. I have a wide experience helping people from all different backgrounds including from sexual and ethnic minority groups. I have gained most of my experience working in multicultural organisations, the NHS, and in private practice for over six years.

Some of the difficulties I am often presented with are:

Qualifications and accreditations

I am an Accredited member of The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and I am also a registered therapist (UKRCP). This is very important to you, as it means that I am bound by their ethical framework and code of conduct to assure you that therapy will be practised to good high professional standards.

I have also worked as a Counsellor / Psychotherapist at the London’s most popular sexual health, contraception and HIV care clinic in the heart of Soho. I’m also bilingual in English and Spanish. Estas buscando un Psicoterapeuta Español en Londres?
