Catherine Ayensu CBTTel : 0753 547 7191



I am a highly trained and fully qualified psychotherapist in East London with a wide range of experience. I have been a therapist for 26 years and worked within the NHS with adults and in the Education sector with children, parents and teachers. 

I specialise in Anxiety disorders, Trauma, PTSD, Stress, Phobias, Self Esteem issues, Depression, Assertiveness, Relationship concerns, Work challenges and life transitions, and Behavioural problems. Help with regulating emotions which can interfer with how you want to live your life. 

My motivation for being a therapist is driven by my passion that we as human beings have the power to change our lives. Sometimes we need help to create this change and this is where I, as a psychotherapist feel excited, humbled and privileged to assist you in this transformation. I enjoy the experience of working collaboratively with you to learn new ways of thinking and behaving that are more helpful for you in leading a meaningful and purposeful life. 

To this end an aim in therapy is for you to learn to become your own therapist, transferring your understanding and new skills to apply to issues that come up after therapy has ended. Clients I have worked with have informed me that this has been very empowering knowing they can successfully manage situations themselves as they arise.

Since we are all different and lead different lives, in my experience as a therapist, there are times when it is beneficial to use a combination of techniques when required that best suit you and the difficulties you are experiencing. I integrate CBT with mindfulness (Mindfulness Cognitive Behaviour Therapy -MBCT), CBT with hypnosis (Cognitive Behaviour Hypnotherapy) and ACT (Acceptance Commitment Therapy) when the situation demands this.

I currently work in private practice with both adults and children, and in schools with families, pupils and teachers. I run mindfulness groups and workshops for the general public, and teach mindfulness in schools to pupils and teachers. I work in a time-limited way; sessions range from 6-24, the number of sessions needed is discussed in the first session and reviewed regulary. We met weekly or fortnightly. I also work as a lecturer and supervisor at colleges in London. I regularly engage in continual professional development and have regular supervision. I am of mixed race heritage, Irish and Ghanaian and have the benefit of rich experiences from both cultures. I am married with 3 children and live in East London.
