So Young Park
So Young Park provides a warm and welcoming space where you can feel safe and supported to explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviours without the fear of being judged. She is compassionate, respectful and open-minded. She will work collaboratively with you to identify what resources are currently available to you and how these can be used to achieve greater independence. So Young has a person-centred approach, meaning she meets you with congruence (authenticity), unconditional positive regard and empathy, and aims to facilitate personal development through your own strengths. She believes in the value of your subjective experience as well as a strong therapeutic relationship built on trust, in helping you to reach your full potential.
During her years of work in mental health care in the NHS and the private sector, So Young saw the importance of support and acceptance in dealing with a wide range of issues such as mood disorders, low self-esteem, stress and psychosis. She understands the pressures and problems individuals can experience in different aspects of life. She has a culturally diverse background, and appreciates the influences and impacts one’s cultural background can have. She has a special interest in depression, anxiety and bipolar disorder, but is open to working with a multitude of issues.
So Young is a Trainee Counselling Psychologist completing a Doctorate in Counselling Psychology and working towards HCPC registration. She is a graduate member of the British Psychological Society (BPS) and works within The Awareness Centre’s NHS Counselling Service in Wandsworth.
