Counselling and psychotherapy in Archway, Finsbury Park and London Bridge
I have been working with individuals and groups for the last twenty years and have held a private psychotherapy practice since 2007.
I would describe my orientation as psychoanalytic from within a contemplative perspective. By this I mean that I subscribe to the idea of an unconscious and believe that events and attitudes from early life can impact on our lives today. I understand that an awareness of these currents helps to increase the choices available to us. Yet I also know, as a long-time meditator, that paying attention in a non-judgemental fashion enables previously unbearable experiences to be borne and new possibilities discovered. I provide a safe space in which these experiences can be explored.
have also worked for many years within NHS hospitals so have an understanding of the challenges of working in large organisations.
I work with many issues including:
obsession and obsessive compulsive disorder
psychosis and psychotic episodes
searching for a sense of meaning
struggling with conflict and indecision
