Emotional difficulties and painful feelings are a fact of life, but sometimes they can become so overwhelming or unmanageable that we don’t know what to do or where to turn. Sometimes we just have a feeling of something being wrong but can't articulate what that might be.
Talking to friends and family can sometimes help, but if that isn’t an option, or isn’t helping, then perhaps it is time to consider counselling or psychotherapy.
Talking to someone who can offer a fresh and non-judgmental perspective allows you to get to the root of what is troubling you, helps you understand why you sometimes act in ways that don’t help you, and facilitates the process of positive change.
As an Integrative therapist I pay attention to the mental, emotional, physical and social aspects of your experience and tailor my approach to fit you.
Through working together we will explore your current difficulties and uncover the links between your past and your present experience. This exploration will give you a deeper understanding of what you are feeling and why, and will enable you to make effective, positive and lasting change.
My North London counselling practice is in Kentish Town and Finchley Central. My Kentish Town premises are a short walk from Kentish Town tube and Thameslink stations, my Finchley premises are a 10 minute walk or very short bus ride from Finchley Central tube station.
