. . . feeling depressed or anxious?
. . . finding it difficult to cope after a bereavement?
. . . trying to adjust to a change in your life (e.g. retirement, illness, divorce?)
. . . having problems in a relationship or with your family?
There maybe no time when you can stop.., breathe..., look around..., reflect on and absorb what's going on for you.
No space to pause...., gather yourself together in one place... and begin to make sense of things.
Perhaps you've been soldiering on for quite some time but, underneath it all, feeling unhappy or anxious, uncertain what to do or who to turn to. Talking with friends or family is often useful and all you need most of the time, but sometimes that might not be easy. This is when meeting with a professional psychotherapist or counsellor can help - someone from outside your family or social group who offers a fresh perspective and insight to whatever is troubling you, whether it's something recent that's upset you or you've been unhappy for quite a while.
Meeting with a psychotherapist or counsellor gives you a dedicated time and space to talk in confidence, be listened to without judgment and taken seriously. I'll encourage you to slow down, take a step back and reflect on the path of your life thus far. This brings a wider perspective on who you are and what in your history may be impacting your life and behaviour now. The bigger view helps you to focus and understand yourself and current difficulties with more clarity and depth. Psychotherapy and counselling support you to self-reflect, find your own solutions and re-gain your equilibrium and confidence.
I think we all have far more inner resources than we realise and the experience of feeling listened to and understood, can help us tap into these inner strengths, enabling us find our path ahead.

I've over 12 years clinical experience and have been seeing clients in private practice since 2014. I'm experienced in working with people bringing a wide range of concerns to therapy, for example:
anxiety, panic attacks, depression, bereavements & loss, worries about family or relationship difficulties, divorce, low self-esteem, lack of confidence, infertility and IVF, unresolved issues and losses from the past, trauma, abuse, identity issues, work-related problems, long term illness or injury, navigating life transitions (e.g. ageing, retirement, illness or injuries), student concerns (e.g. exam stress & worry), eating disorders, social isolation and loneliness.
I'm also experienced in working long term with trainee psychotherapists, counselling psychologists and counsellors from training institutions across London.
Please visit About me for further information about my training and experience.
I'm particularly skilled and attuned to working in this field and was a bereavement counsellor in a hospice for over 5 years. My experience includes counselling those who have suffered a traumatic bereavement such as a sudden death, a suicide or the death of a child.
Sometimes a death that occurred many years ago may still need to be spoken about and mourned; the impact of it given attention and the shared history with that person remembered and given a place in our lives.
