If you are at a difficult or emotionally challenging point in your life, it can help to talk to somebody. We all experience emotional difficulties but sometimes feelings become overwhelming and it may be hard to share them with family or friends.
I am an experienced and professionally qualified counsellor and psychotherapist, providing short-term and open-ended therapy for adults. I offer a confidential supportive environment in which you can explore what is troubling you. Sometimes, simply being given the opportunity to express your feelings can provide relief. However, talking to a therapist also offers a route to greater self awareness and understanding. You can learn to recognise and anticipate self destructive behaviour, allowing more control and choice over your actions and responses in the present day.
If you would like to find out more about my practice and the kind of therapy I offer, please see my website (click on link above).
You can email me or call me on 07816 782 131.
All enquiries will be confidential and we can arrange an initial consultation to discuss your needs and expectations further.
I work in Victoria, Central London and also from my consulting room in Kensal Green, NW10.
