Hi there, I'm Will, and whatever brings you here today – welcome, maybe I can help. I'm a BACP registered counsellor based in London Bridge, Crystal Palace and online, offering short and long-term therapy to adults. I work in a way that is kind, thoughtful and imaginative. First and foremost, I listen deeply – to the content and the process. Over time, I seek to make connections between patterns in your day-to-day life, to patterns from your past, to patterns in the dynamic between us. The result is a growing space of awareness around these that, grounded in a supportive relationship, fosters clarity, meaning and positive change.

I will work with you to create a relationship built on trust and mutual respect, that can feel safe enough for you to go into difficult areas of your life and explore possibilities for change.
I am a qualified relational psychotherapist and counsellor, offering both short- and long-term therapy for individuals. I know from my own experience how powerful the therapy space can be for processing painful thoughts and feelings, and exploring ways in which we feel stuck, in confidence and without judgment. I am practised at working with anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, and relationship issues. But whether you're struggling with something specific, or you can't put your finger on what's wrong, I can help you feel more equipped to deal with life's challenges, and more comfortable in your own skin.

Waitlist for new clients
My primary job is to create a relationship of trust between me and you, so that you feel able to open up.
Hello. Clients come to me in a state of distress or confusion about their relationships or the direction their life has taken. You may have experienced the loss of a loved one or of identity, you may have been betrayed, or feel regret. You may be a concerned parent, or a worried child. You want to feel safe, to feel understood, and to believe there will be help, that things will be different. Ideally, you come in knowing that there is something within yourself that you would like to change. First you need to tell a story, to vent anger, anxiety, grief or fear. Then you want to be heard, and you will be.

I believe there’s no reason for anyone to continue to feel sad, anxious or remain in a difficult relationship.
Can you imagine what life could be like as a result of a Counsellors guidance? I specialise in the range of Anxiety issues (Panic Attacks, Confidence, relationship dilemmas & more). I use brief & practical counselling to provide tools & help manage. "I don’t have much experience in therapy but Mary used some techniques with me that have been very useful. After 5 sessions I am starting to feel a lot more positive and no more sleepless nights." The more you avoid it, the worse you feel so if Anxiety is taking control let me teach you evidence based tools. Having epilepsy I learned to work with any problem until I find the solutions.

Perhaps you are hoping to find and develop relationships that are more meaningful or are struggling with a relationship you were or indeed are in. You may be experiencing feelings of anxiety or dissatisfaction with life. There may be problems at work that require an impartial caring ear or you may be feel there are questions about sexuality that you would like to consider. It could be that you want to look at your general mood or maybe there is simply the need to unpick your thoughts. In any instance, people often find that simply talking to another person about how they are feeling is helpful.

The relationship that we work on between us, in the therapeutic space, is what can make all the difference.
You are most probably working through a series of profiles, getting increasingly baffled. I feel your pain! I work with clients suffering from anxiety, depression, those facing an ending, or a new beginning, or sometimes those that just feel 'off' or lost. Therapy, and finding a safe space to explore your worries can be genuinely life changing: we can talk about your goals and expectations of therapy and your life. This space can help you to trust in yourself, and to empower you. I really believe in talking therapy and providing kinship. I have a special interest in grief and bereavement.

I am an Italian Constructivist Therapy. According to the abovementioned approach, I will use the therapeutic relationship dynamics to help the person achieve greater emotional and relational self-awareness. My master's degree in Clinical and Health psychology helped me to dive into the psychological treatment of mental, emotional, and behavioral illnesses such as alcoholism, eating disorders, or depression. Thanks to a year-long experience in Canada, I also combine the clinical aspect with the cultural to provide a multifaceted approach where both cognitive, relational, and cultural aspects can be take into account.

Relationship Issues Counsellors
While need for human connection appears to be innate, the ability to form healthy, loving relationships is learned. Some evidence suggests that the ability to form a stable relationship starts to form in infancy, in a child's earliest experiences with a caregiver who reliably meets the infant's needs for food, care, warmth, protection, stimulation, and social contact. Such relationships are not destiny, but they are theorized to establish deeply ingrained patterns of relating to others. The end of a relationship, however, is often a source of great psychological anguish.
