About Stella Compton

My private practice is constantly developing as I keep up to date with the latest developments in neuroscience and its application in psychotherapy. I offer a free twenty-minute phone consultation prior to planning an initial meeting. This is an opportunity to talk and decide if it feels right to go ahead. There is no further obligate. I aim to help you to find your experience of counselling to be rewarding and transforming, so that you can creat changes for the better in your life.and relationships,. I am registered with all major health insurance providers.

Client Feedback: ’I am much more in control and am not frightened. I do not have to control every situation. I can enjoy my life.’

My private psychotherapy practice is well established in North London and at the Munro Centre, Guy’s Hospital. It is firmly rooted in clinical evidence and is highly regarded in client feedback. I invite you to take a look for updates and more information at twitter@StellaCompton12.

With twenty years of clinical therapeutic experience the treatment that I can provide for you is supported by extensive nhs clinical and theoretical knowledge and research experience. I sometimes incorporate arts psychotherapy approaches in which I am qualified, though the emphasis is on psychological, holistic, transpersonal and healing aspects of treatment, which can help a whole range of common problems that are encountered by professionals and performers in all branches of business, science and the arts.

Client Feedback: ’Therapy was very helpful - made me focus on some very difficult feelings which needed attention. Stella contained and facilitated the process.’

I am uniquely placed to understand and empathize with the challenges encountered by young artists and sports people, having myself had first hand experience in my first career a as a professional musician. I can guide and mentor talented individuals towards realizing their potential through a combination of effective cognitive strategies, greater understanding of themselves and of mind-body integration.

Client feedback: ’I feel very grateful about the work we did together, it has changed my life for the better.’

I have worked with a wide range of clients from those suffering with work-related stress, eating disorders, people in gay relationships, others following major bereavement, trauma, physical and sexual abuse, neglect, abandonment, job loss, mothers dealing with children with special needs as well as people with personality disorders.

Client feedback: ’I was so impressed with you and the CAT approach. I am looking into undertaking the CAT training. There cannot be a bigger compliment.’

My training, work experience and any achievement

I am an accredited Cognitive Analytic Therapist, qualified to offer you brief or longer term counseling over a wide range of complex psychological or life-crisis problems. You can feel reassured that if we work together, your treatment will be individually tailored to your needs and objectives.

I am interested in keeping up to date with the latest developments in psychotherapy treatment, this year having attended a series of seminars on neuro -science in psychotherapy.

I aim to ensure the highest ethical standards of good clinical practice through maintaining continuous professional development and registration with the UKCP, the British Association of Counselors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and the Health Professions Council (HPC)

My clinical practice is firmly rooted in a sound theoretical framework, with in-depth understanding and knowledge having gained the MSc in Mental Health Studies from King’s College London Guy’s Hospital Campus in 2003.

I have a wealth of therapeutic experience having worked for twenty years in the NHS as a Head of Arts Therapies, Clinical Research Lead and HPC Registered Music Therapist, gaining the MPhil-PhD upgrade at the Institute of Psychiatry (Kings College London) in 2010. I am currently completing the write–up of clinically based research.

I have helped numerous young artists to achieve their potential, since I am approved by The British Association of Performing Arts Medicine (BAPAM) for the specialist treatment of Performance Anxieties and work- related stresses.

Initially trained as a professional musician at the Royal Academy of Music and subsequently working professionally as an orchestral musician, teacher and soloist, I trained for over seven years in CAT and in mental health studies at the medical school of Guys and St Thomas’s Hospitals in London (Kings College London) and before that in Music Therapy at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.
