Psychotherapist in London - EC1
"Why do I always end up in the same place in my relationships?"
"Why do I always fall for the same type of person?"
"I don't know why I behave in this way."
"I want to understand myself better, to make sense of my feelings."
"Life has become too difficult…"
If you have ever said any of the above, you are not alone.
It takes courage to recognise that sometimes life becomes too difficult to carry on alone. But realising you need help is the right step towards change.
Be it in a crisis or in any course of your life, if you are struggling with emotional or psychological distress (i.e. depression, anxiety, fear, stress), or if you feel stuck in painful relationships or in patterns that are dragging you down, know that you are not alone and that psychotherapy can help.
Psychotherapy can help
My name is Allan Gois, and as a psychoanalytic psychotherapist working in Central London (EC1) I can help you understand and work through your difficulties by providing a respectful, thoughtful and non-judgmental environment where you will be able to develop and change.
Through psychotherapy I will help you explore the roots of your problems and rethink the issues that are holding you back so you can better accept yourself and move on.
I have worked with clients and patients in different stages of life, presenting a great variety of problems. Be it in an outbreak of a crisis or even with a not so clear need for therapy, I have helped people to regain confidence, to work through what was holding them back and to continue developing in the different areas of life.
Psychotherapy - the next step towards change
When we go through a painful experience in life we often find ourselves trying to push it away or even to ignore it. Most of the time we know when we are doing this, but sometimes we can bury something so deep in the mind that we lose sight of it completely. This is why difficult experiences in the past can continue to affect the way we feel and behave in the present.
Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy will help you explore what may still be repressed and unconscious in regards to how you feel, behave and relate to other people. In the thoughtful and non-judgemental space of psychotherapy you will be supported in a journey to uncover the meaning behind your suffering, allowing you to become more self-aware and to feel more in control of your life.
The psychotheapeutic treatment not only will help you work through your difficulties, but it will also support you in developing the resilience and self-awareness necessary to cope with what life throws your way. There will always be problems and difficulties in life. But what you achieve in therapy is yours to keep, so when circumstances come you will be able to go through them and become stronger, transformed, free.
Psychotherapy will allow you to acquire invaluable tools that will help you handle the situations you'll find in the journey of your life. It is a great commitment, but one that brings great benefits.
What to do next?
Choosing a therapist is a very personal decision. Every client is unique, and so is each therapy. This is why it is important to take time in the beginning to explore your needs, your difficulties and carefully think about how psychoanalytic psychotherapy can help you.
When you first contact me you will have the chance to briefly tell me what it is you are looking for. If you wish we can then meet for an initial consultation in my consulting room in Central London (EC1), where we will be able to explore your issues in depth and think about what they might be related to. It is also an opportunity for you to consider how you feel working with me as a therapist. The consultation process happens over 2 to 4 meetings, and this is so we have enough time to think about your problems and how psychotherapy can help you develop and grow in different areas of your life.

There is of course no obligation to continue, but if we both decide that psychotherapy is the way forward we will then discuss some important aspects of the treatment, such as: duration, frequency of sessions, fees, etc.
