StillPoint Centre For Wellbeing
18 Devonshire Row
I value the importance of working at a pace that suits a person's needs and work on building trust and safety within our relationship before traumatic or life experiences are explored or worked through.
I am a UKCP (UK Council for Psychotherapy) registered psychotherapist and a qualified mindfulness practitioner, with a therapy room in Liverpool Street, EC2M.
My psychotherapy practice offers you a secure space to explore urgent or long-term problems you may be experiencing - a place to find yourself in the world. I can combine traditional psychotherapy with mindfulness, or create different pathways through each depending on who you are and what you need.
As psychotherapist and mindfulness teacher, my approach is collaborative and client-centred. One of my primary goals is to work with you to achieve an understanding of the subtle and complex ways people see and experience the world. Psychotherapy offers a route towards enhancing an awareness of personal experience and the meanings generated from it, and creates the potential for exercising choice in how you approach others.
I meet each client with openness, flexibility and respect. I listen and engage with you anew in each session. My perspective is that it is the psychotherapeutic relationship which is central to the success of therapy.
I offer short or long-term psychoanalytical psychotherapy and mindfulness teaching. We can discuss in our sessions what may be most suitable, and be flexible about how needs can change over time.
I also offer supervision as part of my private practice.
My therapy rooms are located in Liverpool Street, EC2M. Please look at my website for further information.
