About Nicky Defries
I offer therapy to anyone suffering from emotional difficulties. This could be a problem that is directly related to a particular incident, or it could be a general feeling of dis-ease, making it difficult to pin point the origin of the difficulty.
I aim to offer a safe space, where without judgement you are helped to explore all aspects of your difficulties.
I am very happy to invite you to come for an initial meeting which will allow you to discuss your situation with me, and then make a decision about how you would like to proceed.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you would like further clarification before setting up an initial session.
My training, work experience and any achievement
I am trained as a Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist, with over twelve years post qualification experience. I am registered with United Kingdom Council of Psychotherapists.
I have a background in Social Work, specializing in Adult Learning Difficulties, Adolescents and Visual Impairment. I was a volunteer with the Samaritans prior to training as a Psychodynamic Counsellor, which lead me into my final training in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy.
I worked for over 20 years at a Psychiatric Hospital, where I not only saw individuals, but facilitated groups on anger and eating disorders
I have a private practice in London.
I am a qualified and experienced Supervisor to Diploma level, and am registered with B.A.P.P.S. and U.K.C.P. as a supervisor.
