Welcome. I offer counselling and psychotherapy to adults experiencing a wide range of emotional, relationship and work-related difficulties. I have consulting rooms in Kentish Town and London Bridge.
There are times in many people's lives when they feel unable to cope, or 'stuck'. Sometimes they despair of ever finding a sustaining relationship, or they may feel that, however hard they try, they cannot change or even leave an unhappy one. Often problems at work can eat away at a person's self-confidence, which in turn casts a cloud on other areas of their lives. Exploring these feelings and difficulties, finding out where they really come from, is like teasing out a tangled ball of string. Using the relationship with the counsellor, you can achieve greater self-knowledge which will help you reappraise those troubled areas of your life.
I appreciate it is not easy to see a counsellor for the first time, and it is natural to feel hesitant about sharing personal information, but I can offer you the support that will enable you to try and understand your difficulties, including unresolved feelings and trauma from the past, painful conflicts in the present or worries about the future. Only when we understand ourselves can we bring about change in our lives.
