About me and my therapy practice
I m a psychodynamically trained counsellor, I have a Masters degree in counselling. I have over 7 years of clinical experience working with adult clients.
In the past I have worked as a counsellor for Highgate counselling centre and Nafsiyat and also as staff counsellor at University of Cambridge.
Over the years I have become interested in fertility/infertility issues, pregnancy and miscarriage. I have completed a BICA foundation course for infertility counselling.
Psychodynamic counselling is a counselling method which involves making discoveries about yourself. It aims to bring the unconscious into the conscious awareness so that you can gain some insight and understanding into what is going on in your life or what is troubling you.
Talking about past experiences may be very painful and difficult at times. During therapy we together seek to understand how current emotional and psychological difficulties can have their origin in thoughts and feelings that are unconscious to you and may be located somewhere in past childhood experiences.
Psychodynamic therapy is considered one of the more long-term therapy types. It is a gradual process which takes time.
It is essential to keep in mind that counselling is not a magic pill or a quick fix: counselling is a healing process that necessitates participation and investment from the client and counsellor alike. But in the end, making small changes in self-defeating behaviour and in feelings of sadness, fear, anger and pain can bring life-altering results.
I work with clients mainly online/telephone, however face to face sessions are also possible. I have a limited availability on certain days.
I offer open ended therapy or time limited depending on your needs.
I am happy to offer sessions from either my Warren street or Finchley Central office.
I am a Bupa recognised counsellor
I also work with a number of other private insurance providers. Please ask.
My first session
Our first session will be an assessment which will allow me to learn a bit about you. We will talk about why you would like counselling and how you think it could help you. This first session will give you an opportunity to see if you feel that you would like to work with me.
At times it may be important to have more than one assessment session but I would discuss that with you.
This session will give you the opportunity to ask questions about the process.
Once you decide to go ahead with counselling, we will arrange a regular time and day to meet for our weekly sessions.
