About me and my therapy practice
I am a registered member of BACP and an accredited member of UKCP.
I practice counselling and psychotherapy on a short or long-term basis in Crouch End, London. I offer a safe, confidential, non-judgemental space where you can feel fully met, heard and accepted, and a sensitive, flexible, intelligent response to whatever you choose to bring.
I charge £60 for a one hour session. Sessions take place weekly. I am available weekdays, daytime and evenings. I work in person and online.
I have been practising mindfulness and meditation for over thirty years. I bring a varied background and a range of experience to the work.
The way I work can be described as mindfulness-based, integrative, relational. This means that, as we talk, we pay careful attention to feelings, thoughts and bodily sensations, to the 'felt sense' of what is happening in the moment. An appreciation of this ongoing process draws on a range of psychotherapeutic understanding and practice. There is an underlying trust in, and respect for, your inherent capacity for health and well-being.
Once we have agreed to work together we can begin to explore your experience and the nature of your difficulties. These can stem from perceptions, attitudes and beliefs about yourself, your culture and the world. We are social beings and our brains and bodies grow in relation to others. You may have developed patterns of thought and behaviour to survive in response to past difficulties or traumas that prevent you from living life fully. By examining these views, beliefs and habitual responses you can begin to disentangle yourself from them and from the limits and restrictions that they impose.
In order to let go of painful feelings we have to let go of the roots of those feelings. Once we understand the causes and nature of our feelings they begin to transform. Difficulties that originate in relationship can be explored and healed through relationship. Crises can be seen not so much as problems but as opportunities for growth.
By cultivating your own ‘internal therapist’ you can start to take more effective control of your life, and enter into a new relationship with yourself and the world. A greater sense of clarity and spaciousness can develop, and trust in a more spontaneous, creative and whole-hearted response to present experience.
My first sessionThe first consultation is free of charge. This is an opportunity to talk about your needs, to ask questions, and to find out whether you want to proceed. It is important to find the right person to work with, so you may want time to think about it.
