I have trained in existential psychotherapy, and I apply this in my work with clients. The starting point is the experience of the client, to provide the opportunity for them to examine their understanding of life, and the problems and dilemmas they face; to reassess their goals and desires. It provides an opportunity to consider how their choices have been constrained, perhaps by the views and expectations of others, but also by constraints rooted in our society. Understanding can lead to questioning, and growth, possibly in new directions.

I'm a trainee at the Institute of Psychosynthesis offering counselling in South East London. In psychosynthesis counselling we honour all aspects of a person including what’s going on in the feelings, the mind and the wisdom of the body. This is a wholistic approach that includes all aspects of a person – what is going on somatically in the body, what is going on in the feelings and also what is going on in the mind. The wisdom of the body is included in the enquiry into soothing old wounds. Psychosynthesis also values the more mysterious side of us and the inspirations that come to us through intution.

You have been feeling tense and overwhelmed for no apparent reason, although everything ‘seems fine’ on the surface and people often tell you that you were lucky in life. It might be that you don’t quite know where your emotional and physical reactions are coming from. As if your mind and body have a life of their own. It might seem you have it together all the time but it takes so much energy to keep things going. This never-ending sense of internal pressure feels exhausting but you are not quite sure how to get out of the cycle. You might be confused about who you really are, what is your true self.

Or it may be that feel stuck and don’t know where you are going with your life.

I offer a free 15 minute phone call before meeting. This gives you an opportunity to outline your current circumstances and enables me to consider if I might be able to help you. Your first session will be an assessment where I will ask questions to better understand your past, your present and your expectations. This session is a two-way process for both you and I to consider if we might be able to work together. Any ongoing therapy will last 50 minutes and would typically take place on a weekly basis. I can work in an open ended way or time limited if you would prefer a shorter period. We would then work in a more focussed way

Anxiety around intimacy, relationships, or sexual concerns is incredibly common, and the overarching impact that these issues can have on your health and happiness is often underestimated and undervalued. Forming meaningful and honest connections with people including yourself, and feeling empowered to truly accept and project how you feel - good and bad - is challenging with sex and relationships being no exception. Shedding light on the unconscious and bringing new perspectives to your world can be the seed from which healing and personal development grow.

I understand that reaching out for support can evoke much anxiety. I am here to work at your pace and with your agenda. I have learned that our reaction to challenges in our adult lives can often be related to our childhood experiences. Within our partnership we will be able to work through childhood trauma, attachment and how they may impact on your current mental health. My hope is that you will be able to show your own commitment to the process. My belief is that the level of commitment you show towards your therapy will plant the seeds of your own growth and development. The outcome being invaluable.
