About Sue Amaradivakara

Beginning therapy is an important and courageous first step towards making meaningful changes to your life. Sometimes we find ourselves in emotional difficulty, when life can feel overwhelming or our feelings become hard to manage on our own. It can feel daunting but making time for ourselves and creating space in our lives for thought and reflection is a powerful act of self-care.

Psychotherapy is a ‘talking therapy’ where you and a therapist work together to increase awareness of your thoughts, your feelings and your behaviours. I am trained in psychodynamic psychotherapy so an important part of our work would be to understand how your past may be impacting on your life today, perhaps making you feel hopeless or 'stuck'. We would work together to bring into awareness the unique patterns of your life that might be holding you back and to discover new perspectives, allowing for the possibility of real change.

I work either in person or online and offer a confidential, safe and non-judgemental space. Empathy, trust and respect is central to my practice and my approach is one of warmth and understanding.

I work in London Bridge and online.

I hold a Certificate in Counselling from WPF Therapy, a Postgraduate Certificate in the Therapeutic Arts from IATE and Postgraduate Diploma and clinical qualification in Psychodynamic Theory and Practice from the University of Roehampton and WPF Therapy. In addition to this, I have volunteered in prisons and with organisations supporting people who have been in the prison system.

I am registered with the UKCP (UK Council for Psychotherapy) requiring me to meet the training requirements to practice as a qualified psychotherapist and I follow their ethical codes and professional standards including confidentiality, professional indemnity insurance, regular clinical supervision and on-going professional development. I am also registered with the British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC) and am a member of the Foundation for Psychotherapy and Counselling (FPC) and the Black, African and Asian Therapy Network (BAATN).
