Seeking help or therapy is not always an easy decision. Most of the times this decision implies undertaking a process of reflection and the awareness that something feels off - or is simply nor alright - and that pain or emotional discomfort are involved. Psychotherapy can be the answer as it represents a tool to better deal with the important moment in which we come to terms with who we are and we allow ourselves to change. It can help you nurturing your resources and overcoming the barriers that are blocking you from reaching what you would like.

Trabajo como psicoterapeuta y psicoanalista en Londres. El tratamiento puede ser a corto o a largo plazo ya que cada persona es diferente y estaría en situaciones particulares en su vida al momento de buscar ayuda. Antes de comenzar se llevaría a cabo una serie de entrevistas preliminares para determinar juntos la frecuencia de las sesiones y el tipo de terapia necesario y recomendado. ¡No todos hacen uso del diván! Mi consultorio está muy cerca del British Museum. Actualmente conduzco sesiones por teléfono y en-línea.

Many people experience emotional difficulties at some point in their lives, triggered by a particular event, or as a result of deeper unidentified issues. Talking to a psychodynamic therapist, in a safe and confidential environment, provides a unique opportunity to identify the themes and patterns of thought and behaviour that can generate emotional distress,. This can involve talking through past experiences and understanding how they impact you today. The relationship with the therapist is important, as it provides an opportunity to examine ways of thinking and relating in the here and now as well as developmental factors.

At certain times in our lives most of us find we become stuck or unhappy. These feelings can arise from repeating the same mistakes or patterns. Sometimes a bereavement can result in overwhelming feelings of grief or loss. We can begin to experience symptoms of anxiety or depression. We can feel trapped at work or in our personal relationships. We can struggle with issues around self-esteem or low confidence. Coming to terms with and accepting our true identities in terms of gender and sexuality can be extremely challenging. Trauma from our past which we have not processed can re-emerge. Sometimes things just don’t feel right.

I have seen countless clients improve with these techniques over the years. I work efficiently to reach goals quickly, valuing time, cultivating motivation, and improving clients' sense of control. Most importantly, my role is active and seeks to first establish what the problems are, focusing therapy around these issues, and targeting them directly. I find this far more effective than relying solely on talking and listening.

Our surroundings and relationships take part in shaping who we have become and how we function. Sometimes we can sense that something isn’t quite right, or things have changed. This can be baffling and difficult to manage, while trying to live the life you want. Identifying what’s going on and how this affects you can bring a wealth of understanding. This can be liberating and refreshing, helping to ease undesirable difficulties. Perhaps different perspectives will emerge and talking through these parts are notable for personal attunement and facilitate fulfilment.

As far back as you can remember has it felt like you've had to manage it all on your own. Are you so busy putting others first, that you have lost sight of your own needs along the way? As one of life's 'copers' when you feel anxious, sad, or lonely, rather than worrying others with your problems, do you instead escape from feelings by turning to food, exercise, or drinking to cope. If you are putting on a brave face, when deep down inside you know that something just isn't right. Let me help you to untangle the knots.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in WC1A are psychologists, licensed counsellors, therapists, and psychotherapists, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualised treatment.

Services offered, education, and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in WC1A then may specialise in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counselling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.
How to find a specialist?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in WC1A, or Child Psychologists in WC1A.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like WC1A psychologists specialising in EMDR.


What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in WC1A specialise in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or counsellor who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
