Project Description

Bárbara Godoy, founder-director

Bárbara Godoy M.A., Adv. Dip. Exi. Psy. Existential Psychotherapist Group Leader, Counsellor, Lecturer and Supervisor, MBACP & UKCP accredited, SEA Professional Member, Director of Therapy Harley Street

Bárbara’s academic contributions in London since 2008 includes lecturing and researching on the theory and practice of Phenomenological Existential Therapy on Doctorate, MA and professional courses at the School of Psychotherapy and Counselling Psychology, Regent’s University and the New School of Psychotherapy and Counselling directed by Emmy van Deurzen.

 Bárbara has facilitated and designed therapeutic Group Work internationally since 1997. She brought her earliest workshop: “Experiences” to large groups in The Netherlands, Italy, France, UK and Argentina. These awareness-intensive processes are a legacy of the human potential movement (HPM) of 1960’s, with techniques such as AUM Meditation Marathons, Psychodrama, Bioenergetics and Primal Therapy work.

 The question about the meaning of Being-Woman and the importance of a feminine language was the topic of her postgraduate thesis completed in 2005 and evolved into a range of Group Process Work for Women which she leads along side a staff body of extraordinary guest teachers.

 Currently, as the founder-director of Therapy Harley Street, Bárbara leads a team of over 30 professional practitioners in the area of Psychological services and Wellbeing consultancy.

 Bárbara is also founder-director of the Continuing Professional Development Programme at Therapy Harley Street and in recent years has collaborated with prominent professors and writers in the field of existential therapy.

To be a therapist for me is the process of learning how to be by my clients’ side in their journey of self-enquiry by remaining respectful to their subjectivity as a unique expression of life that deserves attentive listening.
