Sometimes life feels very difficult, with no obvious relief or source of support. You might be seeking therapy because you are feeling stuck, have problems relating to people, anxious or depressed, or maybe you just want support while going through a difficult phase. Counselling and therapy can help through providing a safe, confidential and non-judgmental space to look into the possible sources of feelings and behavioural patterns that might be the underlying causes of distress, facilitating healthy effective ways of making changes in your life.

There are many reasons for seeking therapy. You may need a safe space to work through a specific problem or sudden change in your personal life or in a significant relationship. Or you may be concerned with difficult dynamics or destructive patterns and their impact upon your personal well-being and, perhaps, upon the quality of your relationships.

I work as a psychoanalytic psychotherapist and I have consulting rooms in Central London and North London. I have more than 25 years’ experience of working in the NHS as well as in independent practice. In my experience people seek therapy for many different reasons. They may be facing a predicament, be anxious, depressed or confused, or feel stuck in repeating patterns of thoughts and behaviour that have adverse effects on their lives. They may have relationship difficulties or questions about their sexuality; they may be finding it difficult to deal with the loss of a person, a position or an identity.

Accessing therapy can be daunting and the hardest steps are often at the beginning of the journey towards change and understanding. At times we do not understand why we are feeling the way we are, sometimes we feel misunderstood and often we hide the pain we are feeling or have been carrying with us for so long. It may seem there is no hope and change is not possible. However we sometimes just need that sincere and committed person who will not judge us, who will listen to us and importantly challenge us in a way that is caring and respectful joining us on this journey of growth and change.

You may be wondering if therapy is right for you at this point in time. Coming to therapy can be the first steps to understanding yourself better. I can help you to uncover why you might feel stuck, frustrated or even confused. I started my counselling journey many years ago when I found myself lost in a dark and uncomfortable place. The path I have travelled has brought me here today. We all need a helping hand at certain cross-roads in our lives, counselling can support you through these difficult times. Talking to a person who is not entwined in your life can help relieve some of the anxiety or stress.

I believe psychotherapy is an opportunity to connect with your Inner-Spirit through a process of reflection and self-awareness. I have a heart-centred approach to therapy and provide a warm, safe environment essential for the healing process to unfold. I work in from an integrative approach using the methods that are suited to the individual needs of each person. By taking a Mind, Body and Soul approach to therapy I can provide a space where you can re-connect to your Inner-Self, your essence, truth, joy, compassion, and sense of aliveness. This authenticity will enables you to reconnect with your Soul Nature.

I also have 14 years experience of working with adults presenting with historic, childhood sexual abuse. I have a passion to help those who feel defeated, but haven't quite learnt the tools to overcome. Finding the right counsellor can seem a bit overwhelming. This is why the counselling relationship is very important to me and is key in helping to achieve your goals. I initially use the Person Centred approach to create a safe, non-judgemental, contained, therapeutic space for you and will work at your pace.
