Kate Jhugroo

As a psychodynamic psychotherapist I offer a safe place to talk.

I will help you to consider the ways in which your past and present come together, and how long-standing difficulties may cause you to repeat certain unhelpful patterns and may be preventing you from moving forward.

Working together with a psychodynamic therapist allows for the things that make you unhappy to be considered in the context of the here and now as well as in light of past experiences.


I have worked with adults of all ages who have had a wide range of issues. These have included:

Depression and anxiety

Relationship problems

Separation and divorce

Family issues

Childhood Trauma

Sexual abuse

Long term effects of Boarding School

Coming to terms with major life changes such as diagnosis of illness, changing work environment or children leaving home

Low self-esteem – particularly related to body image and weight issues

The Psychological effects of Bariatric Surgery

Grief and loss

Training and Qualifications

Certificate in Counselling Skills, WPF Therapy Post Graduate Diploma in Psychodynamic Theory and Practice, WPF Therapy and Roehampton University

I have worked with mental health charities for many years. More recently I have worked at WPF Therapy in London and the Bariatric Consultancy in Sussex. I am currently working in private practice in Surrey.

Time limited psychodynamic work

I also offer a CBT approach to the psychological aspects of disordered eating, weight and body image.

Type of clients

I work on a one to one basis with adults of all ages and with young people over the age of 17.

I work with individuals on a face to face basis. We can agree together a format that will suit you – either open ended work which lasts as long as you need, or short term work which is more focused.
