Allan Gois - Psychotherapist in London EC1

I am a BACP registered and accredited Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist working in the City of London (Clerkenwell – EC1), with over 10 years’ experience practicing psychotherapy with clients coming from a wide range of backgrounds and presenting the most diverse of issues.

I have experience working both in Private Practice and in the NHS. Throughout my career I have also worked with different institutions and organisations, providing psychotherapy services to individuals and groups. My experience has helped me to develop a non-judgmental, empathic and flexible approach, learning from each client and adapting with each therapy.

I can also provide therapy in Portuguese and Spanish.

I have worked in psychotherapy with clients and patients coming from many different countries and cultures, in different stages and circumstances of life and presenting a great variety of issues. Some of the difficulties I have helped clients with are:

Abuse; Addictions; Alcohol and Drug Abuse; Anxiety; Anger; Bereavement; Bipolar Affective Disorder; Depression; Dissociation; Eating Disorders; Family and Life Crisis; Flatness of Emotions; Low Self-Esteem; Mood Swings; Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD); Panic Attacks; Phobias; Psychosexual Difficulties; Psychosomatic Symptoms; Relationship Difficulties; Violence and Abuse; Stress; Self-Harm; Trauma and Traumatic Events; Work Related Issues.

I see individual clients for psychotherapy and counselling in a quiet, secluded and comfortable consulting room in the City of London (EC1).
