I am a qualified Psychodynamic Counsellor, accredited with the British Psychoanalytic Council and have a private practice in Islington.
My approach is to work alongside my clients and to consider their issues and concerns in terms of their unique experience. The relational context of family life, up-bringing and psychological development might be areas which, over time, we focus on together. This might help to throw light on how individuals come into relationship with themselves and with significant others and how personal perspectives and their perception of others can influence current problems.
Through Psychodynamic Counselling I aim to offer my client's a unique and meaningful opportunity to explore their thoughts and feelings in a safe, contained and comfortable space.
I offer a once weekly 50 minute face to face session. I also offer open-ended, long or short-term counselling.
