My practice is based in Bloomsbury and Shoreditch where I offer Integrative Psychotherapy for both individuals and couples. I have many years of experience working with: anxiety, depression, stress, bereavement and relationship issues. My style is friendly and in-depth and as an integrative practitioner I draw on different tools and models depending on the needs of my clients. My therapeutic approach is one that aims to help you better understand yourself, your life situations and your relationships.
Here's how I see therapy working...
Sometimes we find ourselves feeling overwhelmed and confused about the difficulties and challenges we face and, as a result, often feel isolated and alone with our experiences. I see Psychotherapy as offering a unique opportunity to feel supported and gain new perspectives that may not have been considered. By coming to therapy and telling our stories we slowly strengthen our understanding of ourselves and how we relate. Along the way we learn new ways of being, coping and relating that we can then apply throughout
Before training to be a therapist I worked as a Designer and some of the creative processes from my previous career compliment many of the therapeutic approaches that I use today.
What to expect
- For individuals
We meet on a weekly basis and this can be for a defined period of time or on an open-ended arrangement. I encourage my clients to keep a journal in which to note the content of our sessions and record any issues that may come up during the week. It's also a space in which to record dreams and work on some of the exercises I sometimes provide. The journal is a great tool through which to look back and see how you've progressed.
- For couples
Often couples who come to work with me describe having lost connection with each other. This loss of connection is very painful and is often at the heart of most relationship conflict. I see much my work as helping couples to find their way back into connection.
Generally, we aren't taught how to be in a relationship or how best to express our needs and fully understand the needs of out partner. What I offer is an opportunity for couples to learn new ways in which to communicate and as a result develop deeper understanding of yourself, your partner and the relationship itself.
