I offer a variety of different ways for you to engage in psychotherapy, at my private practice in Harley Street Central London or Finchley North London, or online.
My practice is best described as existential-phenomenological psychotherapy. Existential psychotherapy is a non-directive form of therapy. This means that I believe you are the expert, I do not claim to have any answers that you cannot find yourself, however it can be helpful to be supported in finding these answers and this is where therapy plays a part. As an existential psychotherapist I believe that enabling you to gain increased awareness of yourself and the implications of the choices you make, will lead you to live in a more meaningful and fulfilled way, and this is a main goal of therapy. The work is always collaborative, with me acting as a guide for you to explore what you choose.
Existential psychotherapy is a talking therapy that draws on ideas from existential philosophy. Some central themes that inform my practice are: choice and responsibility, the search for meaning in life, mortality, freedom and relationships with others, ourselves and the natural world. Existential psychotherapists understand that emotional crises are devastating and need help to be resolved, but also believe that resolution can lead to a deeper sense of meaning in life and therefore enhanced well-being and life satisfaction.
I am an experienced London based psychotherapist. I work from my therapy practice in Harley Street, Central London and Finchley, North London, as well as offering home visits and online via Google, Zoom, FaceTime, WhatsApp and private phone calls.
Psychotherapy is talking therapy that gives you the chance to explore yourself and your relationships. Through talking with me I aim to safely guide you to reflect on deep seated patterns in your thoughts and feelings, the goal with the work is to move towards a place of acceptance and healing.
Good talking therapy rests on the quality of the relationship you have with your therapist. Research has shown that regardless of the type of therapy a person receives, how they feel in the relationship with their therapist determines how successful the therapy is. With this in mind I offer a personable and warm approach to psychotherapy where we work on what you bring together and in partnership. I value the human closeness that humour and informality bring to the therapeutic relationship and believe that true healing takes place through that type of connection.
