Sometimes we need support and speaking to a trained professional within a non-judgmental and confidential setting can help. If you've come this far, you may be considering psychotherapy but wondering where to begin. It can be challenging to find the right person. To help, I would be happy to answer any questions you might have when you get in touch. Here is a summary what I can offer you.
I welcome those who want to work through a specific problem short-term as well as those who seek open-ended therapy.
I have over 12 years’ experience of working with individuals and families on a professional basis, both in the voluntary, public and private sector. I am experienced working in an NHS setting as well as in private practice.
I am interested in working with people from different ethnic and cultural heritages.
Initially, I offer a first meeting which provides a space for you to talk about what brings you to consider psychotherapy and, for you to ask any questions you might have about how I work.
Psychotherapy provides the opportunity to find fresh perspective by seeking to understand the underlying dynamics that underpin problems, including but not exclusively: depression, anxiety, panic disorders, loss, work and relationship issues. Ultimately, psychotherapy provides a space where transformation can occur.
I offer short-term and open-ended therapy based in Archway, N19 and in London Bridge, SE1. Both have excellent transport links.
Please get in touch if you have any questions. I would be happy to have a preliminary conversation with you then take it from there.
