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 the 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.

Some of the difficulties I am often presented with are:

Qualifications and Experience: BSc (Honours) & PGDip

I am a Registered psychotherapist and an Accredited Member of BACP

Whilst I have a wide experience helping people from all different backgrounds including from sexual and ethnic minority groups, my experience comes mainly from working in private practice and offering my services in different organisations, including the NHS.

I hold a BSc (Honours) in Integrative Counselling – Psychotherapy awarded by Roehampton University, a program which is approved by the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP).

I have also completed a  Postgraduate Diploma PGDip in Attachment Studies, which remains one of my main areas of interest. This means that, as part of the therapeutic journey, I aim to help people gaining a deeper understanding of their own personal attachment style.

My style of working is being sided by side with individuals at a pace that suits them and my professional approach is compassionate, warm and down to earth.

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?

As with most responsible therapists, I have personal experience of long-term therapy.
