I am a counsellor and psychotherapist with over twenty years experience. I work integratively, which means I have the benefit of drawing on a range of tools according to the needs of my clients, including aspects from the psychodynamic, creative arts and transpersonal approaches. I work holistically, taking into account all the dimensions that makes us human. Stress and pain can cause us to shut down some of these parts, causing anxiety , depression and other symptoms. My work is about how we begin to understand and heal from this in order to reach our potential and become fully aware of ourselves and others.
Elizabeth specialises in treating women's issues including eating disorders/body image concerns, anxiety and depression, and perinatal issues. Elizabeth also sees adolescent clients with anxiety, depression, and eating disorders/disordered eating. She uses many approaches in treatment including cognitive and dialectical behavior therapy, mindfulness and she integrates a holistic and strengths-based approach as well when treating clients in any area.
Life can become overwhelming, confusing, and difficult to manage. Experiences such as loss, bereavement and major life changes like a medical crisis can make us lose our sense of self and purpose. Depression, anxiety and personality disorders can distort our sense of self, rob us off our full personal potential and quality of life leaving us feeling depleted. Therapy is a place to regain and restore your sense of self and purpose and to help you turn these experiences to an opportunity to grow.
I am passionate about working with people of all ages to help them find healthy ways to deal with life's challenges. I believe we are complex human beings and reducing people to just one extent would be a rather shallow approach. Therefore, I try to approach every person holistically, using a wide range of methods.
I have spent several years working with couples therapy, bipolar, depression ,anxiety disorders, addiction, PMS ,autism, infant loss and OCD .I'm committed to providing counselling with the most up-to-date techniques to build a healing and therapeutic relationship with clients. I will help my client to recover from stress, anxiety, trauma and loss. During the sessions I ensure that the relationship between me and the client is a safe and supportive, one in order to allow the client to freely express their problems. Each session will be fully effective in order to help my patients solve or overcome their problem.
Therapy can be a life changing experience, a time for growth, exploration and personal development. You may be coming in the hope to resolve some past or current experiences or you may feel overwhelmed, confused, lost, stuck. You may even be experiencing difficult symptoms and unhelpful behaviours that inhibit you from living your life to the full. Whatever your reasons are for coming to therapy, we will work together to find the right approach for you.
My ideal client will be hungry to look at and into themselves in the face of whatever brings them to therapy, and will want to work through their challenges to identify ways of moving forward. Perhaps you feel adrift in a current relationship, or following a break-up; you may be grieving a loved one; you may feel that you lack purpose. Whatever it is, I believe that knowing ourselves better can help us find alternative ways of thinking and feeling, and can help us avoid falling into the same old patterns of behaviour. That you are here looking for a therapist means that you want something to change, a hugely important first step.
In periods of doubt and stress, we can lose our way. Sometimes we can find it hard to believe anything could change. We might feel alone, and not trust to reach out. If you are reading my profile you have taken the first step in doing something differently. My relaxed style embraces and values uniqueness and diversity. I offer a calm space in which we can think creatively - find renewed hope.
Most of us experience emotional difficulties at some point in our lives. We may turn to friends and family for help and support, but sometimes this is not possible, or not enough. At this point, therapy can help. A supportive relationship, with a therapist you can trust not to judge or criticise you, can give you the safety and space to share your feelings and to think about what is troubling you. This can lead to greater understanding and the possibility of lasting change and growth. From my practice in Finchley Road, I offer a private and confidential space to help you to explore and come to terms what is on your mind.
Welcome. Finding a therapist can be a daunting task, particularly finding someone who will understand you. I am an experienced psychotherapist working with individuals and couples.

There are times in our life journey which we all have our share of good and bad experiences. Sometimes the bad experiences can either overwhelm or leave us in a place where we feel bruised and unable to cope.
