I am an experienced Psychodynamic Counsellor and Psychotherapist, offering both short and long term therapy, as well as one-off consultations, depending on your needs and reasons for coming to therapy. I provide a confidential and non-judgemental environment within which you can begin to explore and make sense of what is troubling you.
You may be feeling overwhelmed or frustrated and angry about not being able to make sense of things. Maybe you are driven to repeat patterns that cause you distress and pain in relationships. You might not even be sure how to best describe the way you feel, or find it difficult to trust that someone else will understand you. Whatever the issue, talking freely about what is on your mind to a therapist whom you feel you can trust, can give you comfort, clarity, a deeper understanding of yourself, and a renewed sense of purpose.
Therapy is very much an individual process, so there are no one-size-fits-all answers or solutions. It is about you and me working together to explore what is below the surface in order to get to the root of the problem. Over the course of your sessions, you will become increasingly aware of unconscious thoughts and feelings that might be driving unhelpful behaviours or adding to your distress. You will be able to make links between seemingly unrelated thoughts, feelings and experiences, resulting in a balanced, wholesome and meaningful way of experiencing your self and others.
Training, qualifications & experience
I originally trained as a Psychodynamic Counsellor and Psychotherapist (MSc in Psychodynamic Counselling and Psychotherapy, University of London), but I also draw on additional therapeutic approaches depending on my clients' individual needs.
Before training as a therapist, I worked as a tutor and mentor for young children and adolescents with behavioural difficulties, and as a senior manager in the music industry. Since training as a therapist, I have worked for a number of organisations including the NHS and Richmond Borough Mind, where I have gained experience in working with people from all walks of life presenting a wide range of issues.
I am particularly interested and experienced in the following areas:
- Depression and low self esteem
- General anxiety and stress
- Work related stress
- Traumatic experiences, bereavement and other life crises
- Relationship issues - separation, divorce, affairs/infidelity
- Sexual and/or body image difficulties
- Loss of focus, direction or identity
- Unexplained physical symptoms (psychosomatic symptoms)
In addition to seeing private clients, I also hold the position of Initial Consultation Specialist at City of London Therapy Centre, EC1V 8AB. If you are unsure about what type of therapy would be good for you, I can help you decide and refer you on to the right therapist for you.
It is only natural that you may like to know more about how I work and get a sense of whether we could work together, before booking an initial meeting. You may even have questions or concerns about therapy that you would like to address before deciding if therapy is for you.
When you first contact me we will have a brief conversation about what brings you to therapy. We can do this either over the phone or by email/text, whatever works best for you. If you decide to come and see me, the next step would be for us to meet for an initial consultation to talk about the issues that you are seeking help with in more detail, and look into how therapy could help you. The initial meeting is also an opportunity for you to ask any questions that you might have and get a sense of whether you feel we could work together.
Whether you would like more information about therapy or how I work, or would like to book an initial meeting, I would be happy to hear from you.
