Does a relationship in your life cause you pain? Are you feeling stuck and unsure what to do? It could be that things are difficult with your partner or ex, parent or caregiver, colleague or friend. Maybe it's the relationship you have with yourself that gets you down. Relationships can be sources of love, support and nourishment but might also cause you to feel anxious, confused, and in turmoil. If this is your experience, we can work through these feelings together. I strongly believe everyone has a voice that deserves to be heard and I've seen how life changing having a safe space to talk things through without judgment can be.

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.

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.

Psychological research consistently demonstrates that the quality of the therapeutic relationship is the primary indicator of positive outcome.
There are many reasons why people seek psychological support, perhaps they feel stuck in one or more areas of their life or they have noticed unhelpful and hurtful patterns of being, both with themselves and others, and would like this to be different. People may want to better understand where these patterns come from and how they can change. Often life can ‘look good on paper’ and yet a person can feel unhappy or that something is lacking in their life. In therapy we can explore what might be underlying a sense of discontent or unease.

I am an integrative counsellor with experience in both the private and NHS sectors, working with adults and young people. In my experience, many clients come for counselling for help with depression and anxiety caused by difficulties within relationships, friendships, work-based stress as well as isolation and loneliness. By gently encouraging and challenging them to face up to their fears and concerns, they achieve greater insight and self-knowledge and gain a larger perspective on their situation. Through this they come to realise that there are other options and choices available to them through which they may improve well-being

It is my belief that the idea of relationship design does not deprive human relationships from their magic … Rather, it brings awareness of the active role we play through our choices.
My clients are typically people with intercultural background - individuals, couples or groups. They might be facing challenges related to significant change – moving between different countries/cultures, change in their relationship status or professional roles. They might be going through challenging times in life and facing difficult choices: infidelity, separation, empty nest syndrome. We work in their first or second language - English, Russian or Bulgarian. And even if I don’t speak your native tongue, as someone who is multilingual, I understand the challenges and gifts that come with bilingualism and multilingualism.

I am an ex-journalist, writer and relationship counsellor with a particular interest in how long-term relationships can successfully negotiate key life transitions such as having a baby, experiencing loss, growing older or reaching middle age, and evolve in ways necessary to meet the challenges of these difficult but often inevitable changes.
These are tough times for coupledom. The modern companionate model of marriage is based on the idea that each partner look to the other to supply all their needs, and this new type of partnership has to last longer than ever before. Not surprisingly, perhaps, many long-term relationships flounder under the weight of such high expectations and when this happens couples feel bitter and blame each-other.

I specialise in helping people who are experiencing anxiety, stress, low mood and relationship difficulties.
A warm welcome, if you're looking here then it might mean you're ready to start talking to someone about the difficulties you're experiencing. This is a big first step, and it can be a daunting to know who to speak to. I have over ten years experience working in NHS mental health services - I don't believe that people fit into neat diagnoses but that we all sit on a spectrum somewhere between good mental health to distress and this changes depending on what stress is placed on us. I am interested in how you have got to this point and focus on what we can do together to help you move forward and make powerful positive change.

I am experienced in working with issues to do with gender and sexuality, relationship diversity (polyamory, non-monogamy etc) and provide an LGBTQ+ affirmative practice, but welcome clients from all backgrounds.
I am an integrative therapist, meaning I draw on multiple approaches and theories in my practice, but my way of working has been particularly shaped by relational psychotherapy and attachment theory. This means I believe that the relationships we experience in our early lives affect our later ways of relating to both ourselves and others. I believe that therapy is a fundamentally relational endeavour - not that people are broken and therefore need to be “fixed” - but rather that through working together we can come to new ways of relating, understanding and being.

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.
