Whom and what I can work with
I have been offering psychotherapy and counselling over twelve years to individuals and couples who want to deal with their anxiety, eating disorders, depression, obsessive thoughts and compulsive behaviours, psychosexual difficulties and/or relationship issues.
Other work settings
I occasionally offer time-limited counselling to clients who are referred from EAPs (Employment Assistant Programmes). The counselling that I offer within this frame is tightly focused, usually limited to five or six sessions.
In addition to my practice in Ealing, I work at the sexual clinic in King’s College Hospital as a psychosexual counsellor. At this clinic I offer time-limited psychosexual counselling. This psychosexual counselling clinic is one of the few NHS clinics still remaining in London, working together with related disciplines in the hospital as well as GPs and sexual health clinic in the catchment London boroughs.
What psychotherapy can offer
Clients’ difficulties often have long preceding history. Each person’s coping method is unique. It is often complex and entrenched, perhaps to the extent that the person cannot decipher how things are related. One of the tasks of psychotherapy is to disentangle this complicated adaptation and to explore how it has been affecting that person’s life and relationships.
A meaningful shift in feelings also happens in successful psychotherapy on the long run. Most psychotherapists probably agree that not any fixed prescriptive method can force this feelings shift to take place. Instead it can take meandering path with clients’ dedication, together with the support and facilitation offered by the psychotherapist.
Another vital task of successful psychotherapy lies in the integration of the so-called ‘shadow’. Any psychological strength can have unwanted impact on that person’s life and relationships when used in a dysfunctional manner. People can learn, among other things, to use their psychological assets creatively and appropriately through psychotherapy.
Over years as a psychotherapist and counsellor, I have seen people gain sensitive self-awareness and use this newly acquired knowledge to lead rewarding life and to build satisfactory relationships.
Some of my qualifications
I am a psychotherapist registered with the UKCP (UK Council for Psychotherapy). My UKCP registration is based on multiple memberships via HIPC (Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapy College) and CSRP (College for Sexual and Relationship Psychotherapy). I have a Master of Science degree in Integrative Psychotherapy. As a part of this degree I have a foundation certificate for psychotherapeutic counselling. I am a sexual and relationship therapist registered with COSRT (College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists).
My practice is based in Ealing within ten minutes walk from tube and train stations (Ealing Broadway, Ealing Common and North Ealing). It offers easy access to places in West London with public transport.
I offer sessions Monday to Friday during the day and Monday to Thursday in the evening. Once you and I agree to start counselling or psychotherapy, your sessions take place on a weekly basis at a set time on a set day. My cancellation policy requires minimum 167 hours advance notice. In other words, I need to receive your notice for non-attendance at least 167 hours before the session. If I receive your notice after this cut-off point, your session will be charged.
Last but not least...
