Welcome to my website
... suffering from depression, anxiety or panic attacks? ... struggling to come to terms with a loss or bereavement?... worried about work or a relationship?
Perhaps it feels like there's no time when you can stop, take a breath, look around, reflect on or absorb what's going on in your life ...
No space to make sense of things or gather yourself together in one place...
Maybe you're soldiering on but, underneath it all, feeling isolated, unhappy or anxious - uncertain what to do or who to turn to. It can be very useful to talk to friends and family and this might be all you need to do most of the time, but sometimes - for all sorts of reasons - that may be difficult. It's then that speaking with someone outside your family or social group can bring a fresh perspective and insight to whatever is troubling you. And this is when meeting, in confidence, with a psychotherapist or counsellor can help - whether its something recent that's upset you or whether you've been worried or unhappy for some time. It gives you space and time to reflect and talk about what's on your mind as well as enabling you to focus, regain your balance and find your best way forward.
My psychotherapy/counselling practice is in Central London in the Bloomsbury, Holborn and City of London area of Camden, WC1 - link to Map of location.
I'm an experienced and UKCP Registered Psychotherapist & Counsellor.
When you're looking for a psychotherapist or counsellor it's essential to find someone qualified and registered with a professional organisation such as UKCP.
I hold an MSc. Integrative Psychotherapy, BSc Psychology and am a UKCP Registered Psychotherapist. I abide by the UKCP Code of Ethics. Please see About me for details of my training and qualifications.
I'm experienced in working with a wide range of issues, for example:
Anxiety, Generalised anxiety disorder (GAD), Panic attacks, Depression, Relationship issues, Work-related issues, Loss & Bereavement, Divorce & separation, Family problems, Low self-esteem, Lack of confidence, Unresolved issues from the past, Childhood and adult trauma, Child abuse, Difficult memories, Pain and illness, Life transitions (e.g. ageing, retirement, redundancy, illness), Identity issues, Sexuality, Student concerns (e.g. exam stress & worry), Feelings of emptiness, Social isolation or loneliness.
Please see About me for further information.
I've also trained and have extensive experience as a Bereavement Counsellor and am particularly skilled and attuned to work in this field. My experience includes working with those who have suffered a traumatic bereavement such as a suicide, death of a child or a sudden death. Please see Bereavement Counselling for more details.
I believe we all have far more emotional and psychological resources than we actually think we do and that the experience of feeling listened to and understood by another human being can help us tap into and realise more of these inner strengths, enabling us to move forward in our lives.
We're all unique with our own particular life experiences and history so I tailor my work to the personality and changing needs of each individual. My approach is relational, collaborative and flexible; providing a safe ground for you to stand on I offer both support and challenge:
Counselling & Psychotherapy give you space to find a deeper and broader understanding of yourself. This increase in self-awareness enables you to tap into your strengths, to see your life and relationships more clearly, to live more wholeheartedly and to more consciously choose your path ahead.
