Philippa Patel, Counsellor/Psychotherapist North London

I am an integrative counsellor/psychotherapist. This means that my approach incorporates a number of diverse psychotherapeutic methods, each of which depends on the issues that the client presents. For instance, cognitive-behavioural therapy would be appropriate if you want to change particular behaviours or thoughts that are causing you distress. On the other hand, long term counselling would be more appropriate for complex, multi-layered concerns.
The duration of each session is 60 minutes and what you want to discuss is entirely up to you. You may decide that you need only a few sessions to deal with one or two concerns or you may want longer term counselling for a number of issues in your life, both past and present.
My views and ethical beliefs are as follows:
A commitment to confidentiality, safety and respect and a non-judgemental attitude are essential.
Each human being is entirely unique and can only be understood in terms of their own individuality.
We all have a capacity for self-reflection, growth and healing.
Childhood experiences have a profound effect on us as adults.
Unresolved childhood issues continue to disturb us and interfere with our effective functioning.
Counselling has the potential to change the client and the counsellor in equal measure.
I have an MA in Integrative Psychotherapy and am a registered UKCP psychotherapist.
