You might think that counselling will not work for you, let me tell you what it might be like.
Counselling is confidential and a safe space where I can help you to understand and take back control. I can help with anxiety - based issues, which include self esteem, confidence, depression, relationship problems, self harm, or just feeling uncomfortable in yourself. I can help you to acknowledge and value yourself, feel that you are not alone, and support you in finding a way through this difficult time.
The experience I have from working with my clients helps inform my therapeutic approach. I offer both short and long term counselling.I work with both individuals and couples.
My principle approach is Psychodynamic (There is a full description of this approach on my website) the main focus will be to work towards understanding the origin of the issues you are experiencing and provides the opportunity to take a fresh look at them.
I recognise, however that individual issues often need a more tailored approach, and therefore I have additional training in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, and Person Centred Therapy, and Transactional Analysis, I will utilise an integrated approach when appropriate.
I am registered to offer counselling to AXA/PPP and HEALIX clients, subject to their individual policy restrictions.
I practice from consulting rooms in London (West End & City) & Royston, Hertfordshire.
Linen Hall, 168-172 Regent Street. London W1. This is located 5 minutes walk from Oxford Circus Underground.
City of London Therapy Centre, 45, Central Street, London EC1 which is 10 minutes from Old Street and Barbican Stations.
Royston - there is adjacent parking to the Counselling Centre, also it is located a short walk from Royston mainline station which is served by trains from Kings Cross/St Pancras and Cambridge.
I also offer counselling using Skype/FaceTime and telephone sessions, this is more flexible than face to face sessions. Some of my clients combine both which suits their lifestyle and personal commitments.

Other areas of counselling I deal with
I can offer a safe place to explore the emotions around life changing events, and to help you to plot a course for your future. The idea of asking for counselling might raise anxiety - here are some key points:
- During counselling no one will tell you what you should do
- It is a non-judgemental process
- No-one will tell you how you are feeling
- Counselling allows you to focus on troubling issues
A few words from one of my recent clients:
"Personally, I am much more relaxed and my relationship with the family is stronger (actually, all the relationships within the family seem stronger!). I have learned from others that I am a very likeable person and that I don't need to over-exercise my social skills for people to find me. I have a lot of authentic assets for who I already am. I also now see that I am far more mature and emotionally in-tune than my age suggests due to my professional and personal life experiences.
It was your hard work with me to find my path that I am truly grateful for. I have gained much more self-confidence that I quietly posses with my work colleagues."
