About Me

My name is Dorotea Pospihalj

I am a Psychotherapeutic Counsellor working in London and surrounding areas.

My Journey

I have started my journey in psychotherapy in Slovenia and completed training in transactional analysis. The journey took me to Milan, Italy where I studied psychotherapy and finally, settled in London where I completed my training and was awarded MSc degree in psychotherapy at Metanoia Institute. I remain an affiliate of the institute. I am a qualified psychotherapeutic counsellor and a member of UKCP and BACP. I have been training full-time for five years so far and will continue my formation as a psychotherapist and an analyst.

Currently, I am engaging with the psychoanalytic field, which will take me a step further into the human unconscious. I will be training for the years to come with CFAR-Centre for Freudian Analysis and Research.

Why Did I Become A Therapist

Since I was a child I knew that I was a sensitive and intuitive person. The idea of helping others through attentive listening came quite naturally. I grew up in a family of doctors, hence human and medical sciences accompanied me throughout my youth. I was driven by the need to make meaning of human experience, how we relate to ourselves and others around us.

My personal psychotherapy has been an essential part of my journey and it is ongoing. I believe that we never truly finish our work with the self. There is a constant evolution and inquiry into our ever-changing experience in the world. I have my three supervisors that I can rely on for an even broader insight into my work with individuals, couples, families and groups. During my training and professional formation I have been researching and writing papers on various subjects related to psychotherapy and psychoanalysis.

“It is in playing and only in playing that the individual child or adult is able to be creative and to use the whole personality, and it is only in being creative that the individual discovers the self.”
