I am an experienced Psychodynamic Psychotherapist and Counsellor with a private practice in South London. I practice open-ended (long term) or time-limited (12 sessions) Therapy, and Counselling for individuals.
The Therapeutic process explores rooted problems and behavioural patterns repeated through life. It helps to expand awareness and self-knowledge so that you learn to recognise, understand and deal better with overwhelming feelings and thoughts.
In my practice I offer a calm, safe and confidential setting where we work together in finding ways of making more sense of your life experiences and developing a greater capacity to embrace your own life history, life’s events, difficulties and opportunities.
Psychotherapy allows you to gradually be more present, engaged with your life, relationships and create more meaningful changes and experiences in your life.
My clinical experience includes working with adults of different ages, gender, cultures and backgrounds, on the following areas:
- Anxiety and Stress
- Traumatic experiences
- Work stress
- Pressure to make life choices
- Support through life changes
- Depression, feeling stuck
- Isolation and loneliness
- Overwhelming feelings
- Feeling lost, empty
- Life events
- Loss and bereavement
- Pre and post natal anxiety
- Exploring and embracing your individuation
- Gender, Sexuality
- Relationship problems
- Abusive relationships
- Work related
You can contact me via email or leave me a message. I will call you back to organise an initial phone call where we can discuss your main concerns and what is leading you to look for therapy.
