I have a limited number of sessions available on Thursday evenings and Friday afternoons. I work mainly from my consulting room at Staple Inn, Holborn but I do offer some remote sessions. These sessions will be undertaken by telephone or videocall (Zoom).
About me and my therapy practice
Hello and welcome to my profile.
Is there something that you want to change?
Are you feeling overwhelmed, depressed, anxious or unable to cope? Perhaps you are facing a particular problem? Or you simply feel that you have lost your way in life or taken the wrong path?
Do you need someone to talk to in confidence? Someone who will listen to you without judging, criticising or telling you what to do?
As a psychotherapist and counsellor, I help people to work through whatever difficulties they face using ‘talking therapy’, in a secure and confidential setting. This may take the form of:
- short-term counselling to help people in distress facing a particular issue, often something that has happened recently, such as relationship breakdown, bereavement, redundancy, etc
- longer term psychotherapy to help people overcome more deep-rooted problems that may have troubled them for some time
- personal development work; helping people to work out who they are, where they are going with their life and to overcome whatever is holding them back so that they can be more effective and get more out of their lives.
I am a psychodynamic psychotherapist which simply means that I work with the unconscious processes that influence our thoughts, feelings and behaviour. I often think of it as the unseen (but powerful) programming of the mind. This programming occurs as a result of our life experiences often, but not always, from our early years.
My approach is contemporary and realistic. You are in control at all times. We will talk about whatever is troubling you and I will listen and offer insights to help you, based on my knowledge and experience.
Research has shown that, working in this way often leads to definite and longer lasting change and it is for this reason that psychodynamic therapy is often recommended as an effective treatment for a range of emotional and psychological problems.
I also have a broad awareness of many other counselling models and techniques. Often, just having someone impartial to talk to in confidence, who is able to listen to you with respect, empathy and insight is enough to help you to begin feeling better.
My first session
Please contact me for a brief, informal telephone call.
Then, I offer an initial consultation to enable me to understand what has brought you to therapy and for me to think about the best way to help you. This also gives us a chance to meet face to face, discuss any concerns or questions that you may have and see how we feel about working together.
This may be in the form of an extended (90 mins) session or two standard (50 mins) sessions. If we are both happy to continue, we will agree arrangements for ongoing sessions.
