Helena Løvendal Psychotherapy and Coaching for Individuals & Couples.
Specialist Training & Supervision for professionals.

For most people, there are few things in their life more important than their intimate relationships.

"You can go on changing the outer for lives and you will never be satisfied; something or other will remain to be changed. Unless the inner changes, the outer can never be perfect."

Whether you are experiencing a current crisis or long-term difficulties, giving yourself the opportunity to understand yourself or your partner and your relationship more deeply, can be one of the most important investments you make in your life. It can help you approach conflict or feeling stuck as opportunities for your life and relationship to develop and become more enriched; as an invitation to come on a journey that will bring you home to yourself and make possible a depth of intimacy you may not have dared to believe possible.

My aim is to assist in a deep level of transformation that delivers desirable results in the most effective way possible. To do that, I need to know that it is not just me who is committed to the work. Most people understand that there is no magic pill for any of the really important issues in life. We all know that to create real and lasting change or produce truly meaningful results in someone’s love life or personal development, takes time; habits don’t change overnight.

I offer a warm, respectful and confidential environment to help you to look at your own issues or relationship struggles without being judged. I cannot however promise that it will be easy, nor quick. If you decide to work with me, you are not going to get a temporary band-aid solution for your problems. We will be working together to get the results you are really looking for, the reason you decided to contact me in the first place.

Sessions for individuals and couples

Individuals & Couples. holding-hands

I offer sessions in modules of 1 hour, 1.5 hours, or 2 hours. For clients that come from out of town or for other reasons wish to do more intensive work, I also offer 2 sessions; one the same day with a break in between or 2 or more sessions spread over 2 or more days. These intensive sessions are planned according to your wishes, my assessment of your needs and our mutual availability.

Skype or telephone sessions in between face-to-face meetings are possible as part of our extended commitment.

You need to be aware that I am only available in London on a 4-6 weeks basis. If after our initial consultation you feel you want more regular face-to-face sessions than I can offer you, I can refer you to one of our graduate students or other qualified and trusted colleagues. All have their own independent fee arrangements and I cannot guarantee that someone will be available in all areas.

Currently full - no new intakes till 2019.
Please contact me if you wish to look for a date for an initial session to explore what you are dealing with and see if I am the right person for you to work with. I suggest sessions of an hour and a half, especially for the initial session, unless you prefer otherwise. Please let me have a land-line number to contact you in case of e-mail failure etc. Please note, I do not return calls to mobile phones for making appointments.

Locations & Fees

When in London, I work in the Gospel Oak & Highgate area of North London NW5, next to Hampstead Heath and Parliament Hill, with good parking and public transport links. Full details on confirmation of first appointment.

The current fee is £120 per hour. Please note I am not able to accept credit cards.

You may also find our book, “Sex, Love & the Dangers of Intimacy” helpful (Thorsons 2002; Lone Arrow Press 2010). It may be ordered through bookshops or Amazon.

"As a client of Helena's, I felt more deeply seen, understood and received than in any previous experience. I found Helena to have a deeply compassionate heart and wise mind, which offered meaningful insight with just the right amount of challenge.

"My therapy with Helena felt like a life-line during a dark and difficult period, since which I have found greater health and meaning. I remain deeply grateful for Helena; for her offering of an attuned, solid, warm and healing therapeutic presence."
