I am a qualified individual and couples counsellor/psychotherapist who is passionate about helping my clients improve the quality of their relationships and enjoy a fulfilling, balanced and happy life. I believe that many of the challenges we face in life can be viewed as opportunities for growth and transformation if we find the courage, confidence and compassion to change and move towards what brings us joy. As a qualified nutritionist I believe that a healthy mind and a healthy body improves resilience to stress and results in greater contentment with life. I ran my own beauty and health studio for 11 years and understand both the pressures of work and the importance of self-care. I have been practising psychotherapy since 2013 and see clients from my private practice in Willesden Green and at the CCPE (Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy Education) in Little Venice W9. I also run therapy groups and psycho-educational groups where the focus may be on a specific area such as interpersonal relationships, weight loss or stress management.
Counselling and Psychotherapy can help us re-discover who we are, what makes our heart sing and what we want from our lives.
When we begin to embrace and embody what our soul longs for we experence greater joy and peace in our lives and in our relationships.
What brings one to therapy?
You may be experiencing anxiety, depression or low-self esteem unable to decide how best to live your life and or feeling isolated or alone? May be you are trying to cope with the mental and physical effects of trauma: - a recent loss, illness or bereavement or a life changing transition such as a divorce. Maybe you are struggling to cope alone with an addiction or eating disorder? Perhaps you feel stuck in a rut at work or increasingly stressed by your job which is now taking its toll on your health and or family. Or perhaps you long for an intimate loving relationship and would like help in manifesting one. Or are you unhappy in your current relationship and would like to explore with your partner how you can affect positive change in its dynamic?
How can therapy help you?
Therapy can help by giving you the time and space to explore your thoughts and feelings and develop a more compassionate attitude to what you are struggling with. It offers a safe supportive space to tell your story and have it witnessed by a therapist who listens, does not judge you and assists your self-exploration. I work with you as an individual which means that my approach will be guided by your personality, your needs and what brings you to therapy. As an integrative transpersonal therapist I am interested in helping you discover more about your 'gifts' and uniqueness and our work together may at times draw upon your creative and intuitive capacities aided by dreams, visualisations and work with the body.
Short-term or longer term therapy
You may require short-term therapy to focus on a specific problem in your life or a traumatic event such as a bereavement, illness, divorce or job loss. You may seek longer term open ended therapy to allow yourself the space and time to explore yourself and your relationships more deeply. Ultimately we work creatively together to provide meaningful solutions to what you are struggling with in life.
