I am an experienced therapist offering counselling and psychotherapy to individuals, on an open-ended basis.
I take an integrative approach to therapy. This means that I explore the relationship between thoughts, feelings and physical experience, focusing particularly on the links between the past and the present.
Painful or difficult feelings, repeated patterns of behaviour or troubled relationships will often have their origins in past experiences, but it is sometimes difficult to make the connection or to understand why these difficulties continue to affect our lives.
In our work together, whether you undertake individual or couples counselling you will develop a deeper understanding of how your past relationships and experiences continue to influence and affect you. This understanding can help in processing thoughts, feelings, beliefs and behaviours, enabling you to make positive and lasting change.
As your therapist I will provide a safe and confidential space where I will help you to explore what is troubling you. You will not be criticised, dismissed or judged as we work towards greater insight, understanding and peace of mind.
My North West London practise is based in Hampstead, 10 minutes from West Hampstead tube and 5 minutes from West Hampstead Overground.
