Taking the step of contacting a therapist can be daunting: often, people have thought about it for a period of time, before something prompts them to reach out. However, much research has shown that therapy can be an effective way of solving many problems, whether they are about relationship problems, work problems, social fears or shyness, general presentations of depression or anxiety, or more specific mental health related symptoms, or troubling memories from the past, including childhood trauma. Therapy can also help with existential life issues or questions related to identity: who am I, and what do I really want?

"Depression is the common cold of psychopathology and has touched the lives of us all" (Dr Martin Seligman). In my 20 year experience as a CBT therapist I have learned that Seligman is right - everybody will experience at one point in their life depression, anxiety or another form of mental health problems. Some of us will manage on their own, some of us will need help. Seeking help for stress and mental health problems should not have any stigma attached to it - it is one way of dealing with the impact of living in an imperfect world.

I am very good at treating people with Anxiety, Depression, Personality Disorders, as well as those with traumatic experiences. I apply a very modern and effective type of dynamic psychotherapy called Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy (ISTDP). I work on repressed feelings and emotions and help you to get rid of the pain and suffer to become a mature personality. For most people, psychological stress and unresolved traumas are so overwhelming that often leads to many other problems, such as low performance, low confidence, unpleasant encounters and a gradual destruction of well-being. If left untreated, these psychological issues can be transferred from one generation to the next, due to its lasting effects on children. Modern treatments in psychotherapy can help you overcome many types of psychological problems. People suffering from these problems can be helped to regain their sense of pride, efficiency, and effectiveness. My clients need to be well motivated, and cooperative.

Finding a psychotherapist can be daunting, and very confusing, with a lot of terminology and names that might feel complicated and mystifying. My view is that therapy doesn't need to be so confusing and shrouded in secrecy and strange names. To put it simply, I offer you the chance to talk about whatever might be troubling you in total confidence at the same time, on the same day, in the same place, every week. That consistency, alongside the relationship we will develop, is all part of the healing process that therapy can provide.

Asking for help can be really daunting. If you are here, reading this, and have recognised that you might benefit from the kind of support that therapy offers, then you have already taken a big step. There can be lots of reasons you might benefit from therapy. You might be dealing with a difficult time, such as an illness, bereavement, a separation. You might be feeling stressed, anxious, lost or low more often than feels ‘ok’. You might want to understand yourself better, why you feel and behave the way you do, or want to feel more alive.

The people I work with suffer from anxiety and depressive disorders. They often experience their negative thoughts as very adhesive and they engage in styles of repetitive negative thinking like worry and rumination that they find hard to control. Often they have reduced their activities or avoided situations to prevent triggering their difficult experiences. They want to gain a better understanding of the nature of their problems and why they persist and receive clear guidance on how to target these factors with focused, evidence-based therapy.

Feeling depressed, anxious and unworthy; suffering loss, bereavement, relationship issues, or just wanting to make sense of the world and know yourself better? Counselling can help. As a psychotherapist my main concern is to provide you with an environment where you fell feel safe and accepted. A place where you can speak freely and reflect without be judged regardless of who you are. A safe place where you can grow and blossom - I will not offer advice, but will offer a response appropriate to the material you have shared, perhaps offering a new perspective. Finding the right counsellor is a very important step in a person’s life.

My ideal client will be hungry to look at and into themselves in the face of whatever brings them to therapy, and will want to work through their challenges to identify ways of moving forward. Perhaps you feel adrift in a current relationship, or following a break-up; you may be grieving a loved one; you may feel that you lack purpose. Whatever it is, I believe that knowing ourselves better can help us find alternative ways of thinking and feeling, and can help us avoid falling into the same old patterns of behaviour. That you are here looking for a therapist means that you want something to change, a hugely important first step.
