You may be feeling down, fed-up, depressed or anxious – or you may just feel a general lack of lust for life. Whatever it is that's currently troubling you, if it has reached the point at which it's affecting the quality of your daily life, therapy could be the first step to understanding what's going on for you and why. Coming to therapy can be an emotional 'journey' which is not always easy, however it is also an opportunity for change, which could be the beginning of living your life differently.

Many people experience emotional difficulties at some point in their lives, triggered by a particular event, or as a result of deeper unidentified issues. Talking to a psychodynamic therapist, in a safe and confidential environment, provides a unique opportunity to identify the themes and patterns of thought and behaviour that can generate emotional distress,. This can involve talking through past experiences and understanding how they impact you today. The relationship with the therapist is important, as it provides an opportunity to examine ways of thinking and relating in the here and now as well as developmental factors.

I find that most clients are struggling because they lack coping strategies to manage distress, but also often because they are out of touch with what is important to them, their values, their strengths, their preferred life directions, and there are barriers such as anxiety, fear and/or emotional discomfort which lead to avoidance and other unhelpful behaviours. In turn, these factors thwart their goals and increase distress. Clients want reduced distress and increased pleasure and engagement with a life in which they can feel confident and empowered.

Hello, I'm Emily - a modern, down-to-earth, integrative psychotherapist based in London and online. I specialise in working with Gen Y, Gen Z and the LGBTQ+ community. Sometimes I work within quite specific areas, including anxiety, burnout, relationships, self-esteem, self-criticism, perfectionism, communication, identity, lack of direction, purpose or meaning, and LGBTQ+ issues. At other times, people come to see me with a general sense of just wanting to feel more comfortable within themselves and their life - not because something in particular is 'wrong', but because they want things to feel more 'right'.

My name is Marek and I am a fully qualified psychotherapist and sexologist in training who works in a private practice and in a higher education institution in London. I believe therapy helps people to develop a deeper understanding of themselves and their relationships to become free of old patterns, or simply find ways to process pain or memories that have kept them feeling stuck. I strongly believe that we simply repeat what we don't repair. I have a heart and a passion for the work I do in creating effective change. My clinical experience includes working for: NHS, a Community Counselling Services and a Suicidal Respite Centre.

You’re really busy, from a yearning to succeed, in work and in life. But you often put a lot of pressure on yourself to perform and achieve to a high standard. You might fear that you’ll fail, and you are often hard on yourself for your flaws and mistakes. With all that pressure to be perfect, thinking that you’re not good enough, no wonder you might feel tired and unhappy at times, from the lack of rest, recovery and balance in your life. You might feel like you have lost your sense of direction, feeling stressed, anxious or depressed. I can help you come out of that dark hole again.
