Psychodynamic Psychotherapist, Psychodynamic Counsellor in Wandsworth Common SW18, Tooting SW17, Streatham SW16 & Balham SW12.




Welcome to my Page.

My Name is Marcelo Santoro and I am an experienced, qualified and I am an insured Psychodynamic Psychotherapist and Psychodynamic Counsellor in private practice serving the areas of Wandsworth Common, Tooting, Balham, Streatham and Wimbledon.

I offer Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Counselling sessions in a safe, confidential and non-judgmental space encouraging you to talk, explore and understand your difficulties and feelings.

I am bi lingual and I can offer Counselling, Psychodynamic Psychotherapy sessions in English or in Portuguese.

I am a recognised Psychodynamic Psychotherapist member of the PRU HEALTH.


Counselling is used for short-term work usually 08 to 12 weekly sessions.

Psychotherapy is defined as on-going, longer term therapeutic work and can be once or twice weekly depending on your requirements.

I work Psychodynamically which means that my approach is based on exploring the past experiences and the unconscious world of the patient. This helps the patient to understand how they think, feel and experience life in the here and now.

Therapy is not about "giving advice" or telling the patient "what to do" or "changing behaviour". The therapist aims to help the patient explore and understand difficult thoughts and feelings.


Your first session will be about discussing your needs you for therapy;

What you want to achieve from it, and agreeing how you and I, as your therapist, are going to work together.

I will probably ask you a number of questions to
help you decide whether you will be comfortable with us working together and
to make sure that you can be offered the most appropriate support.

Perhaps, after discussing your needs with me , you might decide that
you do not want to continue your therapeutic work with me and if so, then you should be completely free to leave.

If I may think that there may be a different and more appropriate therapy available to you I will, therefore, offer you a referral.


I am happy to answer any questions you have regarding Counselling and Psychotherapy, which treatment is most suitable for you, prices and my qualifications.

I have over twelve years experience working with patients from different backgrounds, cultures and sexuality.

I have worked in private practise and in the NHS.

Further information is available throughout this website.

I will get back to you as soon as I can. In most cases, I return calls within 2 hours of your message.

I am looking forward to hear from you.
