Anxious, stressed or simply ill-at-ease with your life? Do you feel that you are simply surviving when what you really want is to be thriving?
Perhaps you are doubting the wisdom of some of the choices which you have made in life and would like to talk to someone about what you can do to adjust those choices to suit who you really are, free from anyone else's agenda for you. You may feel unclear what it is that is troubling you, let alone what to do about it. You may simply know that something’s just not right.
Perhaps, with UK's place in the world changing, you are wondering where that leaves you.
I have a private practice as a Gestalt counsellor based in North London. As a lawyer for over 25 years, I became skilled in helping clients to clarify realistic objectives for themselves and in facilitating their progress towards them. As a counsellor, I provide a non-judgemental setting in which to support individuals who need to navigate similar processes in their personal lives, perhaps in response to feelings of stress, anxiety or depression.
Ultimately, I aim to give you time and space to let the light in on your experience so that we both see you and your experience for what they really are. "Confidence is linked to how well our perceptions match reality." (Matthieu Ricard)
Much of my counselling work has been concerned with clients' life transitions following on from bereavement, estrangement, divorce and other losses, illness, redundancy, retirement, menopause, burnout and addiction. I worked as a volunteer counsellor for a mental health charity, for a carers' charity and for a bereavement service for nearly four years. In that time, I gained much experience of counselling people with unpaid caring responsibilities, in particular those with family members who have a mental health diagnosis.
I have an interest in family (especially stepfamily) relationships and estrangement. I am working towards accreditation with the BACP.
Sessions take place in Camden and in Crouch End. Do get in touch with me via this site and let's discuss a way forward for you.
