I am an experienced and qualified psychotherapist and counsellor working in Central London.
I see adults and couples for open-ended and short-term work, once or twice weekly, depending on what is most suitable.
In sessions we can think about areas that might be affecting you:
- Anxiety and Stress (Panic attacks)
- Low self esteem and confidence
- Difficulties at work
- Loss and bereavement
- Relationship difficulties
- Identity and sexual issues, e.g sexuality
- Post natal depression, termination and abortion
I work from a psychodynamic and psychoanalytic perspective, based on the principle that difficulties you may have now could stem from earlier experiences in your life. In understanding these it can help you get a better perspective on your life.
