Sylvy Early - Individual and Couples Therapist (UKAHPP/MBACP/UKCP Accredited)
I am a warm, respectful therapist and supervisor, offering individual &couples work, alongside organisational development. I have over twenty five years of work experience within the NHS including as specialist advisor to commissioners of NHS and non-statutory services.
I have served as Board Chair and Board Director for UKAHPP (Association for Humanistic Psychology Practitioners) an accrediting body for psychotherapists. I am a trained Cruse Bereavement Counsellor (National Bereavement Care Organisation www.cruse.org.uk) co-founder of the Thallo Practice an independent counselling service & part of Cancer Counselling London.
I believe that therapy will provide you with a safe and confidential place to discuss and explore your experiences and the support you are looking for. Therapy will support you to be who you are and to have the confidence to live life in more meaningful and engaged ways.
I offer regular reviews to look at how the work and therapeutic relationship is progressing. This on-going review of the work ensures that the issues you want to work on are being addressed. If you are considering therapy, either short or long term, individual, couples or organisations then please feel free to contact me for an initial consultation.I practice from The Thallo Practice EC1R 1UL, a short walk from Angel, Kings Cross, Islington, Chancery Lane, Barbican, Farringdon and Russell Square stations. There is also a very good bus service serving Roseberry Avenue No.s 17, 19, 38, 45, 46, 63, 341.
Individual therapy provides an environment in which you are supported to develop the skills necessary for managing your self and your relationships in new, satisfying and emotionally responsive ways.
Couples therapy provides an environment in which to explore relationship issues. These range from improving communication skills, increasing intimacy, addressing differences in sexual desire and contact, conflict resolution or a generalised feeling of being stuck or unsatisfied. When working with couples, I focus on the relationship, the dynamics and patterns of relating that feel at best unhelpful or unsatisfying and at worst destructive. Therapy can support a deepening of contact and the ending of destructive patterns of relating.
