About me and my therapy practice
Hi, my name is Alisha, I trained at Re-Vision in North London where I qualified as an Integrative Psychotherapeutic Counsellor. I draw on a range of approaches including Jungian, psychodynamic, gestalt and transpersonal and will adapt my approach depending on what you need.
I am curious about people and particularly about how we can get trapped in cycles of behaviour which may have once been vital in helping us to survive difficult circumstances, but which have become limiting and are affecting relationships both with self and others. It may be that you are not able to quite put your finger on what is wrong but have a sense of discomfort or unease or you may have an awareness of what brings you and need help navigating your way through difficult feelings. I will work with you to help make meaning of these feelings.
I work with those who find it difficult to value their own worth in the world, who are in pain or in despair. There may be many reasons for this and I will work with you in a supportive, non-judgemental environment to explore these feelings so that you might make different choices in your life and begin to create conditions where you can flourish.
I work with individual adults one to one, providing both short term (6 - 12 sessions) and open ended counselling
I work relationally, which means that I take notice of what is happening between us. This is because I believe that how we relate to each other may reveal something of your relationships with other people.
I enjoy working creatively and holistically as I understand that sometimes people are better able to connect to their experiences non-verbally. I may therefore work with you using imagery, dreams, drawing and embodiment where this feels like it might be helpful and with your agreement.
I am committed to continuous professional development and attend regular supervision.
My first session
In the first session we will talk about the circumstances which have brought you to counselling and look at what needs to change for you to be able to flourish.
I find that the best way to understand how I work is to have a session. I offer an initial session of 50 minutes for which I charge my usual fee of £65. However, I am also happy to offer a brief zoom call if you have any questions you would like to ask relating to therapy.
