Ludgate Hill Practice

I think we all have far more emotional and psychological resources than we realise and that the experience of feeling listened to and understood by someone else can help us tap into our unique inner strengths.
My approach is humanistic and relational and I see self-awareness as key to psychological health, healing and wellbeing. As an integrative psychotherapist I hold a holistic perspective and draw on ideas from several schools of thought – in particular from Gestalt, existential psychotherapy, psychodynamics, mindfulness. I adapt how I work in response to each individual.
Offering a focussed, non-judgemental and supportive space you’ll be listened to and encouraged to pause, self-reflect and look beneath the surface of your experience to discover more about yourself. I’ll support and challenge you to look with interest and compassion (not self-criticism) into who you are, your life history, how you think about yourself and why you do what you do. This process brings you a broader perspective, helps you develop deeper self-understanding, emotional resilience and to become clearer about whatever is troubling you in your life and/or relationships, enabling you to move forward.
I work in a warm, relational and flexible way, tailored to the unique personality and changing needs of each person, my experience covers working with a wide range of issues, some of which are:
- Bereavement & loss
- Generalised anxiety disorder
- Panic attacks
- Relationship difficulties
- Family difficulties
- Low self-esteem or lack of confidence
- Unresolved issues from the past
- Life transitions (ageing, retirement, divorce, redundancy, illness)
- Long term illness
- Work related issues
- Identity issues
- student concerns (e.g. exam stress, adapting to university life)
I'm particularly skilled and attuned to working with issues related to death, loss and life transitions and have an especial interest in this field. I'm also trained and have extensive experience as a bereavement counsellor, this includes working with those who have suffered a traumatic bereavement such as a death by suicide, sudden death, accident, death of a child.
I see clients for both long-term and short term work.
