Psychoanalysis, psychoanalytical psychotherapy: East London— Leyton, Walthamstow, Dalston, and Hackney


Are you suffering from anxiety or depression? Do you have questions about ways of living or ways of being? Talking and listening can help. Or are you a practitioner looking for a supervisor?

I offer psychoanalysis, psychoanalytical psychotherapy, couples therapy, and psychoanalytical, reflective supervision. At the moment, sessions can be in-person or by walk-and-talk in the Marshes or by video-call or phone. Having had an international clientele for many years, I have extensive experience of working online.

If you would like to talk to a psychotherapist, or if you are looking for psychoanalytical, reflective supervision, please phone, text, or email, and we'll schedule a phone or video session at a time that’s mutually convenient. I have good availability for short-term or long-term psychotherapy in-person or by walk-and-talk in Walthamstow and Hackney Marshes or by video-call or phone. And, there is a free 15 minute video-call or phone-call for those considering psychoanalysis, psychotherapy, or supervision.

My name is Dr Laura Chernaik; I offer open-ended psychoanalytical psychotherapy in East London (Leyton & Walthamstow, Hackney & Dalston) addressed to the individual client or couple.

Psychoanalytical psychotherapy is a mixture of two processes. Psychoanalysis focuses on listening and questioning; it is a thoughtful way to explore what it is that you desire. It can open up a space for change. Psychotherapy is care: the therapeutic aspects of the work. Each psychoanalytical psychotherapy is different, a mixture of analytic and therapeutic processes. It can open up possibilities and new ways of being in the world.

As we work together, something unpredictable and unknowable happens. justEmail Contact Form for a free phone or video chat or to discuss psychotherapy or psychoanalysis or to make an appointment for online or in-person psychotherapy or walk-and-talk from my consulting room in East London, between Leyton, Walthamstow, and Hackney.justEmail Contact Form

It's rare to be truly listened to, and that's what a psychoanalyst or psychotherapist offers: listening. Are you experiencing a loss of meaning? Psychotherapy and psychoanalysis are an opportunity to be heard, a chance to explore and reflect. Do you want space to explore your feelings and thoughts?

I offer free 15 minute phone or video calls if you want to talk about what's troubling you or if you are considering psychotherapy or psychoanalysis or if you are a practitioner looking for a supervisor. If you'd like to talk to a psychotherapist for 15 minutes, please email me on laura.chernaik@gmail.com or phone 07947 330 631 to book a free 15 minute phone or video appointment.

Every analysand is unique and the questions are wide-ranging and unexpected.

Do you sometimes wonder what effect the past has had on you?

Do you have questions about relationships and sexuality?

I also offer psychoanalytical reflective supervision to trainees or practitioners. I am particularly interested in work with psychiatric social workers, art therapists, clinical psychologists, and others wishing to reflect on the psychotherapeutic and psychoanalytical aspects of their work with clients.
