Therapist - LONDON

I imagine you’re here because you’re going through something difficult and would like someone to talk to. Perhaps you’re having a hard time at work, or with your friends, family or partner. Maybe you’re dealing with illness or bereavement. Or maybe things just aren’t how you want them to be, but you’re not sure how you want them to be.

No matter how stuck or impossible a situation may seem, I believe that it holds potential for healing and growth. Therapy can help us to get to know ourselves better – to identify old patterns of behaviour that may not be working any more, to find new perspectives and to try out new ways of being. But we may need support to do this.

As a professionally trained Psychosynthesis counsellor, I can provide a safe and respectful space where together, during weekly one-to-one sessions, we can explore the issues that are making life difficult right now so you can develop a better awareness and understanding of yourself and others.

I work with individuals on a range of issues, including: depression, anxiety, stress, self-esteem, women’s issues, relationships, parenting, bereavement, identity and belonging, racial and intergenerational trauma, chronic illness, sexuality, professional choices and questions of purpose and meaning.

Psychosynthesis counselling values times of crisis, conflict and loss as an opportunity to learn more about our true selves and what is meaningful to us. I believe our pain and suffering can be a catalyst for personal growth and transformation. They can help us to recognise our qualities, behaviours, beliefs and dreams, and to realise our full potential.

In my practice, I use a range of therapeutic approaches tailored to suit the needs of each individual client, and may draw on techniques including guided imagery, meditation, gestalt therapy, breathwork, art therapy, journalling and creative dialogue. 

About me and my therapy practice

As well as being a therapist, I am also a book editor. Reading can take us on a journey to new places, to learn new things and to get in touch with the different characters inside us, whether the adventurer in search of thrills, the wounded child or the wild wolf. Therapy also offers us an opportunity to connect with these different parts of ourselves – to be seen and accepted for all of who we are, to try out new behaviours and to explore our future potential.

Practice description

I am based in southwest London and am currently predominantly working over the phone and on Zoom/Skype. I offer both short- and long-term therapy. I am registered with the BACP and committed to their Ethical Code of Practice. I am also committed to my own personal and professional development and am in regular clinical supervision for my work.

My first session

The first step is to give me a call or send me an email. We will then fix an appointment as soon as we can. The first session is a chance for us to get to know each other and for you to tell me what brings you to counselling. You will get a sense of how we may work together and what it’s like to sit in a room with me. We can then decide if we’d like to go ahead with further sessions.
