Serena Fianco

Managing Partner and Psychotherapist

I am a Psychotherapist and founding Partner at Kensington Therapy. In addition, I see clients at The White Crane Clinic in Primrose Hill and through the NHS at Women & Health and Mind in Camden where I co-facilitate groups and volunteer in the Phoenix wellbeing and recovery service.

My approach to therapy is existential-phenomenological, but my training is integrative and I draw on psychodynamic and person-centred models of therapy as well as CBT whenever I feel they may be helpful to my clients. 

I gained my Postgraduate Diploma and MA at Regent's University's School of Psychotherapy & Counselling Psychology in London. I wrote my MA dissertation on the experience of regret as a catalyst for change and I am currently embarking on further studies in Existential Psychotherapy.

Suzanna Brodie

Psychotherapist and Counsellor

I am an integrative Psychotherapist and Counsellor and work in a person centred way. I provide a safe non-judgemental space to allow clients to talk about any current challenges they are facing and also to look back on their life to identify patterns of relating and ways of being in the world. I believe this holding experience to be at the heart of change and overcoming difficulties.

I work with addiction in a multitude of ways and have in-depth experience of 12 step recovery programmes. I currently work with the charity Rapt, an organisation working towards change within the prison system.

In addition I see clients through the NHS at Women and Health in Camden focusing on short term work providing 8 -12 sessions and also long term clients through MIND, where I also co-facilitate groups.

I am a registered individual member with the BACP no; 898401

Pat Capel

Family and Children Psychotherapist

I have been working as a secondary school teacher for over 25 years. I started my career in Cape Town as a school counsellor and since moving to the UK in 2000, gradually shifted to working with those with Special Educational Needs and being a classroom teacher. Over time I became increasingly aware that a growing number of those around me, adults and children alike, were starting to show signs of not having the skills or resources to cope with our demanding world. Anxiety, stress and depression, in particular, were becoming increasingly prevalent.

I decided to retrain in the Human Givens methodology which is aimed at being short-term and solution focused counselling. My background in teaching has allowed me to specialise in adolescents and children and their families and I have found teenagers particularly responsive to my particular school of psychotherapy as it relies on imagination and very clear goal setting within a well-structured protocol. I also have a particular interest in delivering mental health and wellbeing training within the school context to pupils, teachers and parents.

The methods I employ with young people are equally effective with all ages and I have used them successfully with clients who are suffering with trauma and PTSD, depression, anxiety, phobias, addictions, stress or performance anxiety and those in need of general coaching skills. I have found the methods very useful when there is conflict within a family, whether it be divorce or simply the stress of growing up. Exam season is becoming more and more stressful for the entire family and I have extensive experience on helping pupils and their families through, in particular, external public exams like GCSE and A Level.
