Simone Lee UKCP (Reg Psychotherapist and Supervisor) MBACP ECP
Thank you for looking at my profile.
Since you are unique, the therapy and counselling I offer is tailored to you and your circumstances. Our conversations aim to help increase self-awareness so you feel more in charge of your life. Most of the people I work with feel more content and confident, less anxious, more self-accepting and tend to enjoy better relationships.
My manner is friendly, empathic and down to earth; I will listen really carefully to you and not judge you. I recognise that speaking of personal and difficult matters can be hard so I try to put you at ease. Even when our meetings seem relaxed, I am aware of the underlying serious purpose of our meetings which is trying to help you find a way to make your life more satisfying.
I am very experienced and qualified, having worked as a counsellor & psychotherapist for over 20 years, meeting with individuals, couples and families from varied backgrounds, cultures, ethnicities, genders, abilities and ages, who have brought a huge range difficulties and concerns to our meetings. I like to think that over these years I have made a positive contribution to many lives.
In our conversations, we work together to understand your current situation and to open up new possibilities for how you can live more fully and with greater ease and confidence. No matter what we talk about in our sessions, I offer my full commitment to our time together and respect what you say and the pace you wish to go at. My style of practice is called Existential Psychotherapy.
Some of my specialities are couples counselling, relationship issues, bipolar, trauma, panic attacks and ptsd, worries about the future, generalised anxiety disorder, worrying what others think about you, bereavement, anxiety, work place stress, low self-worth, sexuality, loss and depression, crisis management, ending abusive relationships, miscarriages and post natal depression.
I am also an EMDR practitioner, an approach that works with trauma and past difficult experiences that continue to have an impact. We can work with trauma exclusively or integrate it into other more conventional therapy work.
I like people, so my practice is inclusive and I welcome diversity. I am happy to meet with people from all different backgrounds, religions, beliefs and cultures, sexual orientations and genders, abilities from teenage to the elderly.
You can be assured of privacy and confidentiality in my home practice in North London which is welcoming & comfortable and safe.
To adapt to your particular needs, I offer face to face, SKYPE, telephone and online work and work daytime, evening and sometimes weekends.
