About me and my therapy practice

At our first meeting I will assess your psychological needs and suggest possible ways forward. My experience and training enable me to work with many issues. The key problems I work with are relationship difficulties, abuse and depression. I also work with PTSD and other levels of anxiety disorders, stress, bereavement and work problems. We will explore your issues and related emotions at a pace you manage so that you won't feel overwhelmed.

Processing difficult emotions can help with addictions as well. Addiction can be seen as a self-defence (unconscious) mechanism to protect us from difficult feelings. Therefore being able to access, understand and deal with whatever is "hidden", is a crucial aspect of addiction recovery. (I don't provide detox but a private referral is possible should you need it. I strongly recommend counselling after detox to prevent relapse and to understand the initial cause of the addiction).

I have been working recently as the in-house counsellor for a London based Hedge Fund. The level of stress and pressure is very high and can lead to the Burnt Out Syndrome, among others. Your life can be in such high pace that any additional "life difficulties" can cause havoc. Self-awareness, giving yourself a permission to take care of yourself and the ability to identify and keep your life priorities are very important. Understanding your life, creating your life vision, and implementing a "plan of actions and small changes" can help to achive healthy balance and restore the sense of satisfaction and harmony.
