I am an experienced and qualified psychodynamic psychotherapist and I have over the years helped patients with mild to severe depression, anxieties, relationship difficulties, abuse, lack of self-esteem, confidence and overall stress.
I have also gained experience also working with young adults/students in a university setting and therefore do welcome students in my private practice at a discounted fee.
Many people struggle to overcome painful experiences on their own, whether these relate to relationship break ups, traumatic events, or grief and a deep sense of loss. I provide confidential and caring support in a safe environment which will encourage self-exploration, awareness and insight.
I work from a psychodynamic perspective, which recognizes that current problems and emotional difficulties can be linked to earlier experiences. I can help you understand the underlying nature of your difficulties and identify with you unhelpful current patterns of thinking and behaviour. Through this and the support I provide, you will have the potential to gain a deeper understanding of yourself and your life and the ability to consider making different choices.
Some of the issues I may be able to help you with:
- General Anxiety
- Panic attacks
- Understanding and managing stress
- Understanding and managing anger
- Mild to severe Depressive states, including suicide ideations
- Compulsive behaviours, including drink and pornography addictions
- Eating disorders
- Self-destructive behaviours and self-harming
- Family issues, conflicts and crisis
- Low self-esteem and lack of confidence
- Grief and loss, including divorce, ending of relationships
I also offer the opportunity to explore the techniques of Mindfulness which can help reduce stress and anxiety as I believe that a holistic approach within counseling can encourage personal growth and help develop a general sense of well-being.
I welcome Inquiries. Email me by clicking on the link above or leave a telephone message and I will get back to you to arrange an initial consultation. It is an opportunity for both to think about your difficulties and to decide whether short or longer term therapy is desirable and whether we can work together.
I can understand how the first consultation may seem daunting. Therefore, I can offer a 20mn telephone conversation at no charge.
I practice from two locations: The first one is close to West Kensington, West Brompton and Fulham Broadway tube stations, The other practice is central and close to Victoria Coach station. You can contact me on 07801 062 091 or at email@example.com for an initial consultation. Ongoing sessions are weekly and last 50 minutes. I offer time limited or open ended therapy.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a fully qualified psychotherapist, a professional member of British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC) and of the Foundation for Psychotherapy and Counselling (FPC).
I have been actively involved in clinical practices, working at WPF Therapy and within the counselling team at St George's University of London providing short term and long term therapy to adults, students and Young adults suffering from emotional distress due to anxiety issues and recurring patterns of behaviour and relating.
Also, I have helped patients with depressive moods and severe anxieties which sometimes involved self-harming and suicide ideations and some severe bodily dysfunctions.
In addition, I have worked for the Motor Neurone Disease Association and visited some patients, at King's College Hospital, who needed support to face their disability and sense of loss and adjust to great changes in their lives.
Although my training has been psychodynamic, I believe that some CBT tools and Mindfulness practices can be effective for people to manage and substantially reduce their high level of anxiety and stress.
