I am a professionally trained and qualified integrative psychotherapist. I offer both short and long-term psychotherapy or counselling in London (Fulham, SW6) and on the Isle of Wight.
Everyone experiences periods of stress, sadness, grief, conflict, times when life is simply a bit too difficult; it could be relationship problems, bereavement and loss, low self-esteem, poor body image, anxiety, work/ financial stress, depression, but not everyone finds themselves overwhelmed by these or that their ability to function in everyday life is impaired by these.
However sometimes our own coping skills are simply not enough, family and friends don’t appear to have the answers and self-medicating the pain away by whatever means is running the risk of adding other problems into the mix.
At those times, the gentle support of someone on your side can help bring clarity. Together, we will engage with your deepest worries and explore creative ways of dealing with them.
In our sessions, we will create a safe space, confidential and private, for the expression of uncomfortable thoughts and emotions, a space to listen to those parts of yourself that have perhaps long been silent or maybe never heard. The ultimate aim of our therapeutic alliance will be to help you find your own resources to deal with problems and life crises, as well as presenting an opportunity for you to embark on a journey of self-discovery. In my work I draw upon a wide range of psychotherapeutic models in order to align my approach to the uniqueness of each person I work with and with the issues that they bring.
