Counselling and Psychotherapy in Enfield

The bulk of the work that David Kraft takes on at his clinic in Enfield focusses on specific disorders—for example, someone who is unable to sleep will come for a specific treatment to deal with the insomnia. And, once the individual is able to sleep adequately well, usually he or she feels ready to move on and stop treatment. Other examples of specific problems include phobic anxiety, sweating response, depression, panic attacks, and a huge range of other psychological conditions. However, there are other times where individuals don’t have a specific problem in mind. They feel uncomfortable, they might feel moderately depressed or they might feel that life is not going in the right direction for them: in these instances, many prefer to get this solved by going to see a counsellor for long-term therapy. Generally, the work that I do is solution focused, and I like to help people in a short space of time; however, there are some people who want to be in long-term therapy. Most people have weekly counselling sessions. However, David likes to be flexible. For example, some clients come once a week, while others come twice a month or even once a month.

 

It is inevitable that, at times, some individuals need help, particularly when life becomes tough, during say a time of bereavement or when changing of job. David has had a lot of success working with individuals in this way helping people to take the time to pinpoint their intrinsic goals and motivations: this motivational style of therapy is based on setting up short-, mid- and long-term goals. David, using this counselling approach, offers unconditional positive regard, an approach akin to the ‘client-centred therapy’ of Carl Rodgers. However, it is important to note that David is a trained psychotherapist and, from time to time, he will use analysis in order to help people gain an understanding of their personal situation, taking into consideration the psychodynamics of the family.

For more information, and for any enquiries, please ring DAVID KRAFT on (020) 7467 8564. Alternatively you can ring him on his work mobile number which is (07946) 579645.

Psychotherapy and Counselling in Enfield, North London

Hello and welcome to Enfield Psychotherapy and Hypnotherapy. A number of people in the local community have asked how to get psychotherapy or psychological treatment on the NHS. The answer is, of course, that there are long waiting lists; and, once a referral has been made, it is usually for a set of 6 to 12 CBT sessions. So how does one get psychotherapy in the Enfield area? This is very difficult. There are very few psychotherapists recommended by the NHS and, normally, one has to go to find someone privately.

David Kraft, at Enfield Psychotherapy and Hypnotherapy, offers tailor-made, one-to-one counselling and psychotherapy to the public in the Enfield area. In the past, one had to use to get a referral letter from one’s GP in order to get psychological treatment— that is the say, counselling or psychotherapy. Nowadays, however, one can simply telephone one of the numbers below in order to see a psychotherapist and book appointment. Indeed, one does not need to tell the GP and it’s up to you whether you want your psychotherapist to send a letter.

Dr David Kraft set up Enfield Psychotherapy and Hypnotherapy in 2014 to help with some of the people at Chase Farm Hospital and North Middlesex Hospital. It was obvious that people in the local area could not afford Harley Street rates and he significantly reduced his rates for this purpose. In order to book an appointment, please ring one of the numbers below.

Psychological Help in Enfield, North London

Mental Health/Psychological Help in Enfield

There is a number of different community support teams available in Enfield which focus on mental health. The Community Support and Recovery Team focuses on medical psychiatric treatment, group therapy; carer assessment and support; employment and education support with some welfare advice; care assessment and support recovery. However, generally, this service is for people who have been diagnosed with schizophrenia, bipolar affective disorder, psychotic depression and various other psychiatric conditions. In my opinion, many of the above conditions over diagnosed. And, in a number of cases, people are given labels because psychiatrists are inadequately trained to deal with the aetiology of the problem…

Enfield Psychotherapy & Hypnotherapy

The three most common problems in England are probably depression, insomnia, and anxiety. However, the problem is that, in order to get adequate psychological support, there are huge waiting lists. There are organisations, such as Mind, which deal with these problems; however, they are manned by non-healthcare professionals who have had very basic training. Indeed, all the people who work for Mind are volunteers; and, although they may be on the road to getting the BACP accreditation, they are not qualified. For example, on their website they state that if you experience extreme anxiety they will be unable to help you. I don’t trat you if you are experiencing severe mental health problems, extreme anxiety, an eating disorder. And what if you are self harming or having alcohol or drug problems? They won’t be able to help you. They also won’t be able to help you if you suffering from PTSD or panic disorder.

 

If one wants to see a professional there are long waiting lists and, eventually, a short batch of CBT is offered. Psychotherapy is rarely an option on the NHS. However, help is at hand. Here at Enfield Psychotherapy and Hypnotherapy, we have a short waiting list and we can see you in a short space of time. The psychotherapist, DAVID KRAFT, has had a great deal of experience treating the full range of psychological problems. For more information please go to his website.


So why do people come for counselling? People come for counselling when they have some problems in their lives. This might include personal relationship problems, bereavement problems at work or at home. A counsellor will offer ways of understanding your particular situation. Psychotherapy is inextricably interconnected with counselling but I suppose it involves some poor form of analysis as well. David Kraft offers a solution-focused approach to psychotherapy in which he uses a multi-modal approach to treatment. This includes psychotherapy, hypnotherapy, and other behavioural techniques. In the past, one had to get a referral letter from one’s GP; however, nowadays, one can simply self refer my phone in one of the numbers below.

Psychological Support for the Military

Psychological Support for the Military

David Kraft has had a great deal of experience providing military personnel with psychological support. The main work that he does revolves around helping military service men and women suffering from PTSD. People coming back from the forces find it very difficult to re-integrate into society. The other important strand to the work is helping members of the services to get suitable jobs and move on in their lives. This is a particularly difficult task, because explaining what happens in war zones is almost impossible. Families and friends are unable to understand. Often military personnel are able quickly and efficiently to deal with panic situations in their everyday lives. If there is some sort of disturbance or crisis, they are able to be superhuman and deal with the problem at hand. However, ironically, in every day situations, quite often they find the simplest of tasks very difficult. It must be extremely difficult for military personnel to cope in civilian life. In the army and the navy and in other services, there is a clear chain of command—that is the say, a hierarchy of various ranks. In civilian life there is no such hierarchy, and military personnel find this very difficult.

Many military personnel also suffer from some form of PTSD. In severe cases, a man or woman will be unable to cope with everyday life. Police sirens and ambulances or any loud noise may cause the individual to feel anxious or go into panic mode. Some individuals experience panic attacks while others feel on edge and terrified throughout the day. Others find it difficult to sleep at night and experience nightmares or night terrors. In these cases, it is important to use dissociative techniques in hypnosis to deal with this trauma. Sometimes the key trauma was an actual traumatic event whereas on other occasions the trauma could be a near miss with something dreadful which could have happened. Nevertheless, in all cases, the response to stimuli is largely unconscious. The techniques using hypnosis address the original problem in a safe way. Clients are able to dissociate themselves from the original incident and this helps no recovery.


David Kraft has worked with a number of military personnel over the years and has helped them both with the re-integration into society as well as the post traumatic stress disorder. He has also been involved with the MOD and helping to train psychologists in dealing with pain management.

DAVID KRAFT is a UKCP accredited psychotherapist in private practice. He has two practices: one in Harley Street and the other in Enfield town. If you’d like to book an appointment please ring him in Harley Street. The numbers are below.

Psychological help for anxiety in Enfield (North London)

Using hypnotherapy in gynaecology

Over the years, I have treated a range of gynaecological problems using a range of behavioural techniques. There are a huge number of people wo challenge me on this. Some say that I have no right to treat anatomical problems using hypnosis. My answer to this is as follows. Normally, when I am referred a patient, she comes from a hospital and there always seems to be a psychological element to her symptoms. In fact, the more you worry about something the worse it becomes. Indeed, the field of psychoneuroimmunology is concerned with how the mind can effect change in the body right down to the cellular level. The most common complaints that I get are vaginismus and dyspareunia. Indeed, I have had a great deal of success with both problems.

 

 

A short video on vaginismus can be found here.

I have also written a paper on psychosexual disorders. This can be downloaded for free here.

Mental Health in Enfield

Mental health services in Enfield are provided by the Barnet, Enfield & Haringey Mental Health Trust. The community mental health teams aim to provide support to the public for adults. They offer services for people with the full range of psychological problems: these include sleeping problems, depression, phobic anxiety, stress and general anxiety, sexual problems, bereavement problems, panic attacks, medically unexplained symptoms and many other psychological conditions. However, they also cater for individuals with more serious mental health problems. They also deal with issues relating to cognitive impairment, Alzheimer’s and dementia.

You can get more help if you go to Healthy Enfield or to NHS Choices. You can also go to your doctor for assistance. However, if you ask for psychological support, this will need to go on your medical record and there are long waiting lists. The therapy that you receive will either be Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), counselling or group therapy; the other alternative is being referred to see a psychiatrist. In an emergency you can ring 020 8702 3800 and a trained social worker will talk to you about your problems. Alternatively, you can ring the Samaritans. However, it is important to note that all the workers on these lines are volunteers with little or no training in psychology.

 

If you require immediate assistance, you can ring Enfield Psychotherapy and Hypnotherapy on 0207 467 8564. The services that they offer are excellent and often the waiting list is very short, and you can see a therapist within the week. This compares favourably to the waiting list on the NHS. These sessions are private, however, and they do cost £80 per hour. This is the reduced rate. In order to get the reduced rate, please quote th following reference – AROSA-80. Your therapist is David Kraft. He is a fully qualified, UKCP-accredited psychotherapist with specialist training in hypnotherapy.

Where can I get psychological support in Enfield?

 

Getting psychological support in north London

The NHS is at breaking point and, quite often, individuals with mental health issues go to their GP in order to psychological support only to be put on a long waiting list or given anti-depressant medication. In fact, depression is so common in this day and age – due to the stresses on modern-day life – that GPs don’t know what to do. And, people go to their GP with other psychological problems like stress, sleeping problems, phobic anxiety, panic attacks, ME, irritable bowel syndrome and the list goes on…

A practice in Enfield

David Kraft is an experienced psychotherapist based in Harley Street in the west end. David set up a practice in Enfield Town so that people who could not afford Harley Street prices could still see him for psychotherapy. David uses a combination of psychotherapy, counselling and hypnotherapy. What he found was a NHS system which was at breaking point. People were unable to get psychological intervention, and, even if they did, they were offered 6 sessions of CBT, and this was, in many cases, not the right therapy for them.

Enfield Practice

Getting there

David’s practice is just down the road from Enfield Town overground station. In fact the nearest stops are Southbury or Bush Hill Park. If you drive, you can park in Lincoln Road and the clinic is just off the Cambridge Road (the A10). Mondays to Fridays, from 8:30am to 6pm, there is a concierge on the door. There is also wheelchair access and a lift.

How to book?

Simply telephone 0207 467 8564 for an appointment. One used to have to go through one’s GP; however, nowadays, you can book a session directly. David also has a work mobile which is 07946 579645. Alternatively, you can e-mail David secretary at office@londonpsychotherapy.co.uk.

10 Year Anniversary for David Kraft

Today, I celebrate 10 years at No. 10 Harley Street. I started as a psychotherapist a bit before this, and set up in Harley Street on the 1st of September, 2018.

I am very proud to be there. My father worked at No. 80 from 1971 until he died in 2008. The whole family has fond memories of going there to visit Dad; we also knew the local area very well. It is just around the corner from the Royal Society of Medicine – where I am a fellow and member of council for the Hypnosis Section – and there is a range of shops and famous buildings all around.

As many people know, I have two practices – one in Harley Street and the other in Enfield. I enjoy working in Harley Street just as much as being at home. The secretaries and all the staff are efficient and lovely to work with, and I smile every time I go in.

I have treated a number of clients over the years and I have had had many successes. I am so pleased for them. It is so rewarding working with people and helping them move on in their lives. I have learnt to give and to understand other people – their motivations, passions and what makes them happy and sad. This is the key to psychotherapy – more than all the theories. My approach is integrative, independent and caring. And the essential ingredient is rapport.

Thank you to everyone who has helped me along the way. Thank you to the fellows at the Royal Society of Medicine. I should also like to say thank you to my late father, my brother, mother and cousin. I should also like to say a big thank you to the following for their support and encouragement: Steven Tucker, Hong, Suki, Vanessa, Michelle B, Peter Moule, Jane Boissiere, Geoff Callow, the late Assen Alladin, Leon Gevertz, Les Brann, Peter Mellett, Jacky Owens, Mike Heap, Neil Austin, Grahame Smith, Paul Day, Paul Lynn, Howard Cowley and John Grover.

วันนี้ผมฉลอง เพราะว่าวันนี้ผมทำงานที่ 10 Harley Street 10 ปีแล้ว ในช่วนงเวลา 10 ปี ผ่านมาผมดูแลคนไข้หลายคน พ่อก็ทำงานที่นี่ด้วย Harley Street เป็นถนนที่มีชื่อเสียงที่สุดเกี่ยวกับหมอ หมอพัน และ นักจิตวิทยาครับ ขอบคุณนะครับ เดวิด คราฟธ์ (หมูหวาน)

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.
