My three consulting rooms are in Hackney, Shoreditch and Bristol. I am passionate about facilitating clients to transform their lives and recognise that in looking for some way to change your life you have already begun the process of transformation. My role in this is to bring my experience and training to help guide, hold and unfold this process of you discovering and living your potential.
I am an experienced, qualified counsellor, coach and accredited psychotherapist with 15 years experience. I work with a wide range of difficulties including anxiety, bereavement, depression, low self-esteem, relationship difficulties, procrastination, abuse and trauma. I work with individuals and couples within a safe, supportive and, if required, challenging space for you to explore past or present issues which might be troubling you.
Many people suffer with anxiety and these fears can be painfully debilitating to their lives. Fears, when faced, can quite miraculously disappear, yet others, have their root in the existential and are not so much overcome as integrated and the effect diminished.
Procrastination is a double edged suffering and you are not only not doing what you want to but you are also never free of the need to do it. It can manifest in what can be dire situations. Psychotherapy allows you the space to look at what you want to do, what is stopping you and how to do it differently. I am trained as both a Psychotherapist and a coach and in my experience I have seen how these two approaches can complement each other.
