Luiza Machado

Group Analytic Psychotherapist

Since 2009, I have been practising as a group analytic psychotherapist with individuals and groups. Over the past decade, and to date, my focus has been providing group psychotherapy for distressed adults in Therapeutic Communities within the NHS.

People may seek therapy for various reasons, including internal conflicts that hinder their ability to enjoy life. These conflicts may manifest as loneliness, a feeling of not fitting in, being overwhelmed or confused, disappointments with oneself or others, or the need to find answers and cope with loss.

I focus on group work and provide individual sessions to prepare clients for group sessions. My approach is based on psychodynamic principles, which acknowledge the existence of the unconscious mind,  the part of our mind where past experiences and attitudes from our early years can reside and influence our present lives.

I trained at WPF (Westminster Pastoral Foundation) and have a Postgraduate Diploma in Group Analytic Psychotherapy. I am registered with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and the Foundation for Psychotherapy and Counselling (FPC).
