It's ironic that a large part of psychotherapeutic work is around trying to convince people that their perceived 'abnormal' feelings and behaviours are a completely 'normal' reaction to a set of, often very difficult life circumstances. For instance, why wouldn't someone have a generalised feeling of persistent anxiety and low mood, when they have to live in what seems like a crazy and confusing world? We can work toward a more accepting and benevolent view of ourselves, exploring who you truly are and where you might truly want to go in life, without the harsh inner voices of the past.

I believe most people have everything they need to not only cope but thrive in life, they just require a little help and support to realize this and release their potential. I believe counselling offers an opportunity to be honest with yourself in a way no other kind of communication can. All you need is the will and motivation to start.

You may have been thinking about reaching out for some time. Taking the first step into therapy can be intimidating, and the relationship with a therapist is unlike any other. It is essential that you find someone with whom you can feel safe. I am here to help make that transition as easy, comfortable, and rewarding as possible. I work with individual adults to help explore problems, including anxiety, depression, substance abuse, relationship issues, grief/loss, compulsive sexual behaviour (including problematic viewing of pornography) and myriad other issues.

Making the first step to accept that things aren't working can feel daunting. Perhaps you know exactly what you want to change or perhaps you have lost sight of what you want along the way. I specialise in working with clients who are making adjustments in their lives; perhaps after illness, into parenthood or retirement or to a new place. My clients often say that having a supportive space to process difficult feelings balanced with an active method which empowers them in their recovery is what is most helpful about therapy. My approach begins with the assumption that we all have strengths that we just may need support to uncover.

Are you feeling helpless, hopeless, frustrated with life, others or your self? Does life feel like too much at times? Do you find yourself wondering what is the point? Are you anxious? worrying about things that have yet to happen. Dealing with difficult feelings can feel overwhelming and may seem as if you have nowhere to turn or no way out. Deciding to see a counsellor can be a scary thought, thinking about discussing, with a stranger, private and sensitive subjects or even things that may feel shaming. However, making the decision to start therapy can be the first step to empowering yourself to make changes in your life.

As a psychotherapist, I am dedicated to helping families and individuals navigate the complexities of family trauma and emotional well-being. One of the key aspects of my approach is creating a safe and supportive environment by establishing trust and fostering a sense of openness. This is essential to the therapeutic process, as it allows for a greater understanding of the underlying issues that may be causing distress. I understand that relationships can be a significant source of both joy and conflict and is adept at helping navigate these challenges and find ways to communicate more effectively and build stronger bonds.

I support individuals with anxiety, depression, trauma, low self-esteem, relationship issues, family conflicts and self-criticism. Many times we feel stuck and ruled by unhealthy thoughts and behaviours that disrupt our lives. A specific traumatic event or experiences growing up might have triggered that or the reason may be more difficult to pinpoint. In our sessions we can gently unpack your needs and what is holding you back from living a fulfilled self-directed life. My aim is to help you tap into the wisdom of body and mind through talking, inner parts work, somatic work, imagery and mindfulness and other creative explorations.

Managing a career or running a successful business can be both rewarding and challenging at the same time. You set the goals, you are smashing through them and yet there seems to be something missing with each achievement. In addition, there are people looking up to you, family depending on you, life’s demands and you can’t afford to take your eye off any of the balls. It is a constant juggling act. There is so much at stake and ‘failure’ is not an option. Someone always wants something. There is a constant need for more. No one seems to understand what it is like keeping all these balls in the air.

Life can sometimes be so complex and difficult that we do not always feel able to sort it out and get back to feeling "normal again". The complexity of life and the hardships that some people have to endure has always fascinated me, and having experienced many personal losses and life changing events myself, my passion has grown, and I would like the opportunity to "make a difference" and support those when it is most needed. Working in my current work environments I understand how the demands of daily life and major life events such as a Bereavement, Domestic Violence, Physical/Sexual abuse or divorce can leave us feeling.

Counselling is a talking therapy that provides you with the opportunity and space to explore your concerns, worries, fears and anxieties in a safe and confidential manner without being judged. Life brings about many storms. They may be emotional, physical, psychological, financial and spiritual. During such times, it can be hard trying to cope alone and as such, one may feel the need to talk it over with someone. Someone who is able to listen attentively with compassion, sensitivity so as to understand their distress. It is not my role to give you advice rather to enable you to talk and empower you to find your own solutions.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, psychologist, or counsellor, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counsellor in South East London, London?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in South East London, London specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
