I have over ten years experience seeing clients for short and long term counselling and psychotherapy. I specialise in Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), moderate to acute anxiety or depression, social anxiety, relationship issues, alcohol issues, and sexual/physical/emotional abuse. Furthermore, I currently see clients at the Bupa Health Clinic in Bank and private practice at Liverpool Street.
So, if you identify with the following experiences or symptoms:-
Weight loss or gain,
anxiety or panic attacks
Struggling with your relationship
victim of abuse
Addictive behaviours - alcohol and drugs
Or perhaps, maybe you’re stuck in a cycle, which at times can make the world a fearful place. It might be helpful to explore what underlies these experiences to help you move forward.
I worked for Bupa Health Clinics for 9 years where I carried out thorough clinical triage psychological assessment in order to provide the appropriate treatment or referral pathway for clients. I also provided both telephone and face to face counselling and onsite trauma support for employees and managers of organisations. Furthermore, for the past 5 years I have seen clients in my own private clinical practice at Liverpool Street, London.
My specialist areas are; trauma reactions, moderate to acute anxiety/depression, relationship issues, anger management, bereavement, oncology issues and sexual, emotional, and physical abuse. However, in the past ten years I have worked with disadvantage individuals, providing low cost therapy, and corporate clients, such as managers, partners and executives with the following presenting issues.
What is Counselling and Psychotherapy?
Counselling tends to focus on short term treatment plans over a period of 6 to 12 weeks. The focus tends to be in the here-and-now, thus not necessarily delving into the client’s childhood. The aim of the counselling is usually to help individuals explore different ways of managing their emotional issues using solution focused and cognitive behaviour skills and techniques, which in return empowers the client to take control over how they manage their mental health.
Psychotherapy, on the other hand, focuses on longer term treatment plans (from 12 weeks onwards) for individuals that present with acute psychological disturbances. It aims to help client gain insight and understanding of their psychological distress. This often involves exploring and examining clients lived experiences from childhood to adulthood in a structured way, in which allows the client to feel safe and build trust in the therapist.
The overall aim of counselling/psychotherapy is to provide a safe, non-judgemental environment that gives individuals the opportunity to explore and examine their problematic situations causing emotional disturbances or challenges in your life.
The therapeutic relationship between the therapist and client is paramount in order to work through emotional issues. That in return helps improve individual recovery processes and further enhances clients’ mental well-being.
It’s good to talk. Should you be unsure about what you are looking for in a counsellor or psychotherapist and you would like a chat, give me a call and I will be more than happy to talk anything through that you feel you need clarification on.
I also use Creative Art Therapy during my sessions.
