I am an experienced, highly qualified psychotherapist and counsellor working in the City and West End of London.
Are you stuck in a rut in which everything makes you feel anxious? Or life feels like a deep dark hole? Therapy can help by providing compassion and support to disentangle, confront and accept some of the painful aspects that life seems to put in our way.
As a relational Gestalt therapist, I use our relationship to guide our work as we build awareness of the patterns that can keep us stuck – and by doing so, generate options for change.
Choose the right therapist for you
Research indicates that it is the relationship between therapist and client that supports the effectiveness of psychotherapy. So I believe it’s important to choose a therapist that you can feel comfortable with and that you can imagine growing to trust, even if this may take time.
How I work
In addition to my core training (a Masters degree in Gestalt psychotherapy) I’ve attended a wide range of seminars, workshops and short courses, in the UK and also the US. These have involved many different theoretical approaches including movement-based therapy, CBT and Psychodynamic. These, and other approaches, give me multiple rich insights into how we can approach our problems and difficulties.
I have a particular interest in the connection between mind and body and how we can use that to improve our wellbeing. This goes along with a life-long interest in physical and mental wellbeing, along with their flip sides of anxiety, depression, shame and trauma.
I see individuals and couples for both short-term and long-term work.
