It may be that you want to discuss a current life event, or something that has been troubling you for some time. Being listened to with empathy and non-judgement can help you to deal with issues that are causing distress or unhappiness. The cause can be known or they maybe unknown. Relationships can get stuck in repetitive patterns. Issues that therapy can help with and that are often hard to overcome include: low self esteem, relationship issues , depression, childhood trauma, sexual issues, anxiety and stress . I also work with bereavement, loss, addiction and substance misuse , health related issues.
Life can throw many challenges at us and affect us in many different ways. These might include being troubled by painful memories from difficult past experiences, struggling in relationships, caught in cycles of worry and anxiety or low mood, or constantly feeling not good enough. These experiences can make it feel difficult to cope and might leave you feeling unmotivated, unfulfilled, or like you are living a life directed by worry and fear rather than your values. I am here to provide a safe, compassionate and non-judgemental space to explore these difficulties and support you to navigate a way out of them.
There are times in our life when we can feel sad, anxious, overwhelmed or unfufilled. Therapy can provide support through challenging times, or a space for exploration of patterns that cause us to feel stuck and unhappy. I offer a warm, open and non judgemental space where we can explore your unique needs together at your own pace.
Are you feeling anxious, demotivated, and or depressed? Perhaps you feel like you're at your wits end and don't know what to do? Do you ever feel inadequate, insecure or like you don't belong? Do you ever wish you could just feel more confident? Do you find yourself caught in a cycle of negative thinking or trying to avoid your problem but it just won't go away? I have been working successfully with clients with low confidence, self-esteem, social anxiety, social phobia, and existential issues in a counselling or coaching capacity. My style is collaborative, solution-focussed, & somatic, tailored to you and your individual needs.
I offer a warm, authentic and non-judgmental presence. My approach is in Integrative therapy, with a transpersonal perspective. Which enables me to work with many principles and techniques from both classical and contemporary Western psychology. It is a flexible approach with the ability to adapt to a clients individual needs. I work in a relational style and am curious to explore a clients experience, and discover the root of a clients concern and their inherent potential. In particular giving space to a clients relationship with themselves, others and the world.
We are all influenced by the people in our lives and the experiences we have had both past and present, all of which serve to shape and define us. Sometimes we need help in understanding how the culmination of these factors can get in the way of being able to live life fully and with ease. Maybe you're looking for relief from the pain of anxiety or depression. You could be struggling with life changes or loss. You may want a better relationship with yourself and/or those closest to you. I offer a non-judgemental space in which I can help you to explore your feelings, beliefs and patterns of behaviour.
Hello, thankyou for looking at my profile. My intention is to develop a therapeutic alliance, a safe space to provide a hearing, a listening. Being with a committed other, every week is a rare and precious gift to yourself. This time will be your time. I am an integrative practitioner which means I bring everything I know, theoretically, intuitively, physically and emotionally, in the service of the other, in the moment. Locating feeling and releasing of emotions, is welcomed, through the body, voice or with artworks. I am committed to giving you and your experiences a full hearing, and so change will occur.
Anxiety, depression, trauma and long term physical health problems can reduce your quality of life and leaving you feeling alone and fearful. I am a GMC registered former GP with over 20 years of medical experience. I offer a uniquely blended approach to working with people who suffer with all types of anxiety and low mood, chronic stress symptoms, chronic pain and persistent physical symptoms. I also work with people who have ADHD and people who have experienced persistent repeated trauma or a significant single trauma event. I have a particular interest and experience in working with doctors with mental health problems.
When we experience distress in our lives, often we believe we need to make an external change to relive this distress, but change can be very difficult to make if we are unsure what we want, what we need or why we continue to repeat the same patterns again and again. We may know we want to feel happier, but we don't know how to get there. We may be aware of influences that feel out of our control, either in our every day lives, or perhaps influences from our upbringing. How we respond to our experiences is not our fault, however it is our responsibility and we can make change to thrive in our lives, not just survive it.
I am a HCPC registered Counselling Psychologist working in North London. I offer short and long-term psychotherapy and counselling for various issues in the areas of adjustment and stress/coping concerns (home, school, work), mental health (i.e. anxiety, depression, PTSD), relationship based difficulties (often working with couples and families), severe mental health illness including bipolar, personality disorders and addictions. My training includes Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, CBT, Compassion Focused Therapy and Existential Therapy. I also have experience in physical health conditions and end of life care.
I am a qualified Psychologist and psychotherapist from Brazil, and I am very passionate about therapeutic interventions that vary from deep psychological interventions based on the client's history and memories, to an emphasis on the relationship between therapist and client, including their cultural context and systems. I am also very interested in using symbolic representations and meanings in the therapeutic setting to assist clients on their reflections and self-awareness. I have worked in a variety of settings including psychiatric hospitals, voluntary LGBTQ organisations, as well as the private and educational sectors.
Sometimes life can become overwhelming and every day can feel like a challenge. One can feel “stuck” in relationships, a career or with life in general. There can be moments where both personal and professional development feels obstructed and the joy of life is missing. Then one might need help to find a way through these difficulties. Psychotherapy is an opportunity to explore the difficulties in a confidential, non-judgmental and supportive space. In this exploration one can not only gain support and understanding, but also start noticing things about one's self that may never have been noticed.
I am an Art Psychotherapist with 17 years experience of offering emotional support, and a safe place to try and make sense of symptoms such as anxiety, stress, depression, or meaninglessness, perhaps exacerbated now by recent world events. You may have experienced loss, a recent or early trauma, or there may not be a specific event that you can pin point. People come to therapy for a wide range of reasons, and my aim as therapist is to help clients develop an understanding of themselves, their thinking and behaviours, their relationships, and their unconscious motivations, themselves then able to create meaning, and make changes.
I am sorry but I have no vacancy at the moment but please we have many vacancies in our excellent online groups run by group analysts please see the website: therapygroupsonline.co.uk. I am an accredited group and individual psychotherapist, and psychoanalyst. I trained at the Tavistock clinic, worked as a consultant psychiatrist and psychotherapist in the NHS, and more recently, as the National Director of Therapies for the Priory, with responsibility for the therapy services in over 100 hospitals. Outcome measures show that working with me facilitates recovery, improves relationships, happiness and pleasure.
Life can be challenging and there are times when we may need help to navigate our way through it. Often our early experiences in our families don't equip us to manage life as well as we would like. This can cause difficulties in our relationships, both with ourselves and others and can lead us to repeat patterns that are unhelpful and leave us feeling depressed and anxious or stuck and unfulfilled. Therapy can help us to understand ourselves and our experiences and to give us the resources to cope with difficult feelings and circumstances. It can help us to improve our lives and relationships and make better decisions.
Emotional difficulties may be difficult to talk about which can leave us in an overwhelming and lonely place. You may have been considering counselling for some time, but perhaps there are mixed feelings about it? It is very natural to feel this way. However, I would like to encourage you to reach out because counselling can offer an invaluably rewarding experience of understanding self better - deeply - which opens opportunities to developing new perspectives and more helpful ways of coping and relating. This, in turn, helps to grow stronger psychologically and feel more in control of your inner world and your life.
I offer a private, strictly confidential and non-judgemental service. I stress the last point in the belief that psychotherapy has the potential to be one of the few truly non-judgemental relational spaces available to us. Please see my website for further information.
I think we sometimes come to therapy not knowing exactly what it is that's causing us pain. Maybe we feel fear, anger, confusion or just a sense of detachment from who we feel we used to be or could be; sometimes it is only symptoms (such as addictions, eating disorders, OCD) which we can identify. Past, unaddressed, trauma may be arsing or you might be experiencing family or work issues or, maybe, you’re in grief (from a death/relationship breakdown). Whatever your reason for wanting therapy I know that, ultimately, we want to feel better than we do right now.
When life’s road feels bumpier and then bumpier again therapy can shine a light on the causes and the best way forward. I will provide a safe, warm confidential environment, where we will identify, explore and work through what’s troubling you. Through our relationship and by working together we will discover and develop new ways of approaching life that will serve you better-ways which are less compromised by the past.
Suffering in life may take many forms. My approach is guided by the belief that through therapy we can endeavour together to find meaning in the suffering and navigate beyond stuckness or ingrained ways of living which are no longer working for you. I am a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist providing open-ended psychotherapy to individuals both online and in person in North and East London.
