Federica De Angelis Psychotherapy & Counselling

About Me. Federica De Angelis

Federica De Angelis MSc, BA (Hons) MBACP (Snr Accred), BPC (Reg), MBT Cert., Cert. in Psychosexual Studies


I am a BACP Senior Accredited Psychodynamic Psychotherapist and BPC Registered Psychodynamic Counsellor with over 25 years’ experience in the psychosocial field in Italy and in the UK having originally qualified as a social worker in 1996.
Highly experienced in working with a wide range of issues including trauma, psycho-oncology, chronic and life threatening health conditions, and sexual health, I have provided counselling and psychotherapy in a variety of social and mental health settings. 

I hold an MSc in Psychodynamic Counselling and Psychotherapy from Birkbeck College University of London, which I obtained before attending further trainings at the Tavistock Relationships and at the Anna Freud Centre in London.
At the Anna Freud Centre I attended training in Mentalization based treatment while at the Tavistock Relationships I gained a Certificate in Psychosexual Studies and I am completing additional specialist training in Psychosexual and Relationship Therapy.

Alongside the clinical work in my private practice, and until August 2022, I was employed in the NHS at Kingston Hospital NHS Foundation Trust where I offered specialist Counselling to Oncology patients (inpatients and outpatients) and their carers, and where I supervised groups of nursing staff.

My wide-ranging clinical experience also include counselling students at the UCL Student Psychological Services, providing long-term psychotherapy (18 months) at the South London and Maudsley NHS Trust- Lambeth IPTT Personality Disorders Service, and both brief and open-ended therapy at Sutton Counselling, a charitable counselling service in Sutton.

Apart from the psychodynamics of Chronic and life-threatening Health Conditions, I have a special interest in Personality Disorders, Psychosomatic Presentations, Relationship and Psychosexual issues (intimacy, desire, compulsive sexual behaviours, arousal disorders, menopause, fertility issues).
