We all have times in our lives where things can get more difficult. Sometimes this is triggered by an external event or it may be an experience of everything just getting too much; psychotherapy can help us to make sense of why things are the way they are, with the aim of freeing us up to get on with life.
I am a qualified psychotherapist with experience of working one-to-one with people both privately and in the NHS. My private consulting room is off Westbourne Grove in Nottinghill, and in addition to daytime appointments I also have some evening and early morning times.
I work with adults on a one-to-one basis, meeting once a week. I start with a Consultation and then we think together about the most helpful way forward. I work with a wide range of difficulties and with people from all walks of life.

Sometimes we find ourselves feeling low, overwhelmed or stuck. Sometimes we don't know why & sometimes we have a vague notion of having been there before. Sometimes these feelings can be related to the stage of life we are at.
People say that life begins at 30, or 40, or 50, or 60, and whilst that might be right, each age brings with it particular challenges and sometimes getting older can bring up difficulties which may need some help to be worked through.
Psychotherapy provides a safe place to talk, to share, to think and to be carefully thought about. Although this isn’t easy work, it can help to understand and clarify things.
