Counselling for the Clergy
From time to time, the clergy needs to speak to someone in order to gain perspective. Often, priests will go to a spiritual adviser, but in other instances, it may be helpful to go to see a counsellor. London-based psychotherapist, David Kraft, has seen a number of priests in this capacity and enjoys this work immensely. David has a practice in Harley Street, and also sees clients in Enfield at a highly reduced rate.

How can I get Psychological help in Enfield?
Dear Dr Kraft
I have been trying to get psychological help for nearly a year now. My GP has applied for help but I just get a few sessions of CBT which isn’t right for me. I need time to talk through my problems and I just get nothing. Can you help me, please? I am desperate and can’t sleep. I think about my life and my depression all the time and I am getting darker and worse.
By all means ring me on 07946 579645, and I will book you in for a session.
All the best

Corporate Psychological Coaching at 10 Harley Street for Businesses
Psychologist, David Kraft, has had a history of working alongside managers in corporations, helping them to achieve their potential in the work setting. Sometimes, individuals seek help in order to move them forward in their careers: usually, there is a sticking point in their work or home life, and it is important to analyse this in order to effect change. On other occasions, David has worked in small teams – both in senior and middle management. He will typically use a combination of behaviour therapy and analysis. This combined approach helps people to achieve their potential. Sometimes, he will use techniques associated with NLP; however, it is important to note that these techniques often have their grounding in behaviour therapy. David Kraft, like his father, is a pioneer for behaviour therapy and uses it to help many clients and patients.

Glossophobia (the fear of public speaking)
Glossophobia, a fairly unknown term, is an irrational fear of public speaking. This Greek term tends not to be used by psychotherapists: they tend to prefer to this problem as “performance anxiety” of the “fear of public speaking”. This condition is treated using systematic desensitization, an approach which involves working gradually towards more difficult scenarios. During the hypnotherapy, you will learn how to reduce your anxiety and to become more confident in front of others. Treatment programmes vary in length.

What is Death Phobia and how can it be treated?
Death Phobia is also known as Thanatophobia. This is an interesting phobia in the sense that most people, in some way, fear death. Death phobia, however, is an irrational fear of dying yourself, and it is different from necrophobia, which is a specific fear of dead or dying people. The best treatment for this problem is psychoanalysis: it is only through a deep investigation of one’s fears, primordial instincts and desires that one will be able to get to the heart of this problem.

Thalassophobia – The fear of the ocean
Thalassophobia is an irrational fear of the ocean, but it also includes a dread of water, waves and unknown spaces in the sea or ocean. The is a rare condition but it affects people so much that they are unable to travel on a boat or ship or even watch programmes about the sea of ocean. Phobias are best treated using psychodynamic psychotherapy and hypnotherapy. In the hypnotherapy, you will work through a graded hierarchy of difficult situations involving the sea or the ocean – starting with the easiest and working through to more difficult scenarios. This process is known as systematic desensitization.
