Thank you for visiting my page.
You can be coping with life when suddenly something happens, maybe the loss of someone you love, losing a job, illness or a growing awareness that things are becoming difficult for you. You may be feeling overwhelmed and not sure which way to turn, there may be a feeling that nothing is really making sense for you. I can provide you with a safe, confidential space which is for you alone and is tailored to your needs and requirements. I offer my clients the choice of working either on a long term basis where we can explore issues in depth or if you prefer to take a more structured approach we can work on a short term basis for typically 12 sessions for adults over the age of 18. I currently work from two locations Kings Cross (NW1) and Liverpool Street (EC2M) both of which have excellent transport links.
I have worked with a broad range of clients who have come to me with a variety of different problems that are affecting their ability to lead a truly fulfilling life. Some of these issues are bereavement, loss, anxiety, depression, PTSD, lack of self-esteem, body image issues and particularly eating disorders, anorexia, bulimia and binge-eating and am interested in how they impact the sufferer and also family members who support them.
As I am trained in Gestalt Therapy I believe that you as the client should be seen as a whole person and have the ability to lead your life to its full potential. I also believe that the way you interact with your environment is vitally important as is our relationship and how it develops in the sessions. You may not be able to see a way forward, you may be feeling stuck and in our sessions we can look at this, it may involve looking at difficult thoughts and feelings but is through this and looking at your part in this that will allow you to make new choices going forward. I can offer you a warm, supportive and non-judgemental space to explore this, I may also suggest bringing some creativity into sessions as I believe this can offer important and sometimes unexpected insights into yourself.
