Welcome to my website
... suffering from depression, anxiety or panic attacks? ... struggling to come to terms with a loss or bereavement?... worried about a relationship?
Maybe there's simply no time when you can stop, take a breath, look around, reflect on or absorb what's going on in your life ...
No space where you can make sense of things or gather yourself together in one place...
You could be soldiering on but, underneath it all, feel isolated, unhappy or anxious - unsure what to do or who to turn to. Talking to friends and family is often useful and might be all you need most of the time, but sometimes that can be difficult. And it's then that speaking with someone outside your family or social group can bring a fresh perspective and insight. This is when meeting, in confidence, with a psychotherapist or counsellor can help - whether its something recent that's upset you or you've been worried or unhappy for some time. It provides the space and time to explore your concerns in a non-judgemental, supportive environment and helps you to focus, reflect 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, some of which are:
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'm also trained as a Bereavement Counsellor and have extensive experience and am particularly skilled in this field. My experience includes working with those suffering traumatic bereavements such as a suicide or 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.
