About me and my therapy practice
You may have difficulties at work or in a relationship or you may feel overwhelmed by powerful emotions or anxieties. Perhaps you feel that life itself has become a struggle? This has may be especially so since the pandemic which has impacted on all of us, sometimes in profound and unexpected ways.
Talking with a qualified and experienced therapist can help you to understand your problems and find ways of resolving them. It can also help you to change destructive patterns of behaviour and to discover more creative and fulfilling ways of living. At the heart of this work is a trusting relationship between therapist and client.
In addition to general private practice work, I work with survivors of domestic and sexual violence or abuse; both those experiencing current problems and people who have suffered traumatic experiences in the past. Please call me or send me an e-mail for a confidential discussion if you have been affected by any of these issues and would like some help.
I also welcome enquiries from those affected by identity-based trauma eg from the LGBTQ communities and those affected due to race or ethnicity.
I work with adults of all ages and from all walks of life. I can offer open-ended or time-limited counselling or psychotherapy. I offer a free 30 minute consultation.
My practice is based in N19, walking distance from Archway tube , Highgate Village (N6) and Crouch End (N8). For further information about me, please take a look at my web-site or better still, get in touch.
The way I practice is not about my giving advice but rather thinking together with my client about the way forward which works best for them. Our work is a dialogue; one in which you will do more of the talking and I will listen intently. However, I will be responsive, emphasising my commitment to the idea that therapy works through relationship.
I can offer online, telephone or ‘in person’ sessions.
My first session
I offer a free 30 minute consultation in which you can outline the issue(s) you feel you would like help with. It is also for you to decide if I am the right person for you and for us to agree that we can work together. This usually takes place on the telephone or via video conference.
If we do agree to work together, I will then forward a contract which includes details of how to pay, holiday arrangements etc. Or first session will simply be a continuation of our initial meeting. There will be no formal assessment.
