Psychotherapy can help you make sense of life and cope with its difficulties. You have taken the first step in looking for help and even if it feels a little daunting, you will soon find that therapy can make a difference.
If you are looking to realise your full potential in your career, we can also work together to identify challenges, understand your strengths better and plan how to improve your chances of professional success.
During these times, I am offering remote sessions using Skype or zoom. Remote sessions are both practical and as effective as in-person sessions as well as more convenient to fit around work and other commitments.
I am experienced in working with adults who find themselves in difficulty and are struggling to enjoy life to its full. This might be because of internal issues, a sense of loss, sadness, anxiety or fear, struggles at work, difficulties with a partner, tensions in the family, questions about your own identity, and so on.
Working together we will explore what difficulties you face and try to understand what in your past contributes to your present struggles. As you start to understand this, you become more able to address both the events in your past and the way they influence you today. Usually this leads to feeling better and being more able to change your life.
My consulting room is based in Hampstead. Please contact me either by email or leaving a message on the phone to arrange an initial consultation.
I am fluent in English and Hebrew.
