I am a qualified integrative trained counsellor and psychodynamic therapist which means that I use a range of modalities suited to your individual needs. I have experience of working with young people and with adults in many areas including anxiety depression and loss / bereavement.
I am an individual and couples' CBT therapist with an interest in exploring how your childhood wounds affect your relationships now. Whether you would describe yourself as codependent, people-pleaser, perfectionistic, worrier, anxious-preoccupied or avoidant, I would love to work with you. I can help you explore the impact of your life story as well as teach you ways to have a better relationship with yourself and others, whether that’s by learning to say no, stopping worrying, having healthier boundaries, being more confident, finding meaning in life. I also work with couples who want to have healthier, more secure relationships.
Sometimes feelings of being lost, angry, sad and fearful may appear without reason. Sometimes we know exactly where it's coming from. You may be seeking something, some awareness, meaning or acceptance. You could feel stuck in patterns, unable to move through them or understand where they may be coming from. Maybe it's time to tend to those parts of you that are hurting from what you've been through. To heal, we need to be seen, heard and understood in an environment that we can feel safe in. Together, we can create that and explore and process through those current and past issues.
I am a child and family psychodynamic psychotherapist, with over 20 years’ experience working with parents and children. I undertake short and long-term psychotherapy, parenting guidance, communication work and assessments. I cover a range of emotional and psychological difficulties with expertise including: General anxiety, Separation anxiety, Family Difficulties/issues, Parental separation, Sadness, Stress and worry, Low self-esteem, Bereavement and loss, Anger and behavioural difficulties, Sleep Feeding Attachment difficulties, Depression and low mood, Trauma, Abuse, Difficulties at school – including bullying
I see individual and couple clients with a wide range of issues. They include problems within relationships, parenting issues, bereavement, stress at work, low self-confidence and more. Often a client might feel a loss of hope and meaning in their life; they might have problems regulating their moods or coming to terms with aspects of themselves and decisions they have made. By coming into therapy, they seek to build a trusting relationship in which they open up, explore, let go of difficult emotions and complex thinking and beliefs.
I am a fully qualified Counsellor and Coach offering a safe, judgement free, supportive and empathic space for you to explore your present and past experiences. I am an Integrative Therapist, which means I draw on and incorporate various approaches to therapy in order to provide you with a more personalised counselling service that suits you, your current situation and your goals.
Sometimes life gets hard and it's easy to feel 'stuck' or 'lost'. Work, university, stress and relationships can all contribute to these feelings and create inner turmoil. Sometimes we need to recognise and identify patterns in relationships (often starting from childhood) to understand how we relate to others, and why this influences our decisions and thought patterns. Together we can explore your thoughts, feelings and views in a confidential and safe way, allowing you to gain insights and clarity on whatever is troubling you, with the aim of giving you more confidence to make decisions and become the 'you' you were meant to be.
You may be feeling stuck, overwhelmed, or alone. You may feel like it is hard to cope with anxiety and low mood. Perhaps you experience difficulties at work and in relationships. I provide a safe and supportive space in which to explore and work together through your feelings and difficulties.

I feel confident to work with clients face to face as I have weekly Covid tests and ask you to follow the precautions of handwashing and distance. If you prefer or are unable, we can 'meet' via the internet. I am a Psychodynamic Counsellor and Child & Adolescent Integrative Counsellor working in Enfield, North London. working with clients from three years of age upwards to adult and couples. I perform assessments and work with adults at a local counselling centre and with children through the local council. I have worked in a primary school setting. I work long term and solution-focused short term.
I work on the premise that each person is a unique individual with a capacity for self-actualisation and the ability to make positive changes. From early childhood we learn to adapt to our environment, often at the cost of our unique selves. We may feel as if life is passing by or we get stuck in negative thinking. As we become aware of our beliefs and behaviours, and their impact on how we feel, we could make different choices on how we are in the world.
People seek psychotherapy for many different reasons. Sometimes things can feel overwhelming and you don’t feel like you can cope. Some look for support through difficult experiences in life, both past and present; some want to gain a better understanding of their recurrent patterns. If these are familiar with how you have been feeling, I'm here to support you to find out your difficulties and resolve them with you. I believe my relationship with you in the therapeutic process is important for change and transformation. I am compassionate about helping people to find their own ways and treating a variety of clients for many years.
Hello, my name is Marie-Pascale. I specialise in working with Adults and Young people suffering with difficulties such as anxiety, depression, self-doubt, indecision, grief, loss of meaning, difficulties in relationships and many other issues that are specific and unique to each person. You may be aware of your difficulty but no matter what you do about it, it's not working! Or you may not know what is causing you to feel the way you do and feel lost and unable to change it. Therapy is a time and a place for you to speak and be heard so that together we can find out what's not working for you and how it can be changed.
Therapy helped me. It can help you too. I’ve been where you might be right now…stuck, wanting to change and not knowing how. Embarking on a journey of self-discovery can be daunting and challenging. I’m privileged to be able to guide others to their own transformation. My goal is to help clients find both the meaning for their behaviours as well as a clear understanding of what’s holding them back, always encouraging them to find the “gift of growth” in every situation. My aim is to provide a safe and nurturing space for you to tell your story with no fear of judgement.
Work through and move forward. Being there and supporting you to feel comfortable enough to honestly express what is really going on for you. Gentle professional therapy, you can rely and trust in. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or book a free telephone consultation with no obligation. I have a proven track record within local services. Your first session is half price. Through the pandemic I am offering discounts with other reductions available to make this service more accessible during this difficult time.

Perhaps the most important benefit of good psychotherapy is that over time and with practice you learn to become your own 'therapist'. In other words, your relationship to yourself changes for the better. You may become more able to befriend your experience, even when that experience is difficult. This may equip you to deal in ways that feel better to you with life's ups and downs.
Maintaining a work life balance can feel overwhelming at times. You may feel isolated and rather resolve issues alone than burden family or friends. It may be difficult for you put into words what is going in fear of being judged or disregarded. I have been working with adults and young people for 17 years and use a range of approaches. I am warm, approachable and completely non-judgemental allowing you a confidential space to explore issues comfortably. I offer short and long term sessions which are normally 50 minutes each. Our work is tailored to support you and without any pressure. Please feel free to contact me.
Welcome! We all strugge at times of our lives. You've taken the first step which is to identify that you need support. I will provide you with a warm and compassionate space where together we can explore whatever issues you may bring, and provide you with fresh insights and tools to facilitate change in these areas.
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.
Sometimes we just need someone to talk to, outside of our immediate circle, who will listen without judgement. There are so many reasons why we seek counselling and for each person these reasons may change over time. Whilst counselling for one person may be about releasing and being heard, for someone else it may be to work on the past or for another to work on current challenges or towards a future goal. Driven by the nature of our work together, I employ creative and/or practical methods, depending on your preferences and what you feel you need from your sessions. As each client’s needs vary, so does the therapy that I provide.
