About me

Hi, my name is Ben - I am a mindfulness-based integrative therapist - what does that mean?

At the heart of our struggle is often a wish for things to be different.

In therapy, we bring awareness to your experience and, without judgement, begin to accept things as they are in this moment.

This doesn't mean giving up, it's about loosening the struggle and creating some space to notice the repetitive cycle we can become trapped in.

In this space, we give ourselves the chance to be more intentional, with our thinking and our attitude, developing the necessary agency to manifest the change we desire.

If you wish, we can use mindfulness activities during the session or discuss goals for you outside of our work.

I am particularly interested in working with

  • The development of self-worth, through acceptance and self-compassion, to help those who struggle with feelings of anxiety and depression
  • The complexity of relationship difficulties, whether that be in creating, maintaining, or letting go

Where do the sessions take place?

My therapy room is at my home in De Beauvoir, just to the north-east of central London. It's in zone two on the border of Hackney and Islington, five minutes walk from Haggerston London Overground station which can be easily accessed from Highbury and Islington station. Nearby postcodes include N1, N5, E8, E2, E1 and EC.

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). The BACP is the largest professional body representing counselling and psychotherapy in the UK. They set the standards, values, and ethical guidelines by which therapists work to.

As part of my therapeutic approach I draw on my experience of Psychodynamic and Person centred theory, Acceptance and commitment therapy, and Mindfulness based cognitive therapy.

Here are examples of some issues I have worked with:

  • Fear and anxiety, including generalised anxiety disorder (GAD) and panic attacks
  • Sadness and depression, including postnatal depression
  • Low self-esteem or confidence
  • Relationship issues and difficulties
  • Family issues
  • Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • Bereavement
  • Addictions
  • Alcohol and drug abuse
  • The end of a relationship, separation and divorce
  • Feeling confused, indecisive, stuck
