Life can present us with many challenges, some of which may be harder to deal with than others. Depression, anxiety, bereavement, addictions and addictive behaviours, abuse (sexual/psychological), job loss and relationship break downs, to name a few, are just some of the many things in life which can cause emotional difficulties. Which can, in turn, leave us feeling hopeless and unaware of what to do.

If you are visiting this page it is likely that you have come to a point in your life where you would like to address certain difficulties. It is also likely that you are struggling in certain areas that you can’t resolve on your own. Or it may be that you want to become more aware of / have greater understanding of blocks in your life in order to make a change. Therapy can help you with these difficulties.

I provide a safe, supportive, warm, non-judgemental and confidential environment for you to be able to explore difficulties which may be challenging you. I use an integrative approach to therapy which includes, gestalt psychotherapy, person-centred therapy, psychodynamic therapy and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). Being trained as primarily as a gestalt psychotherapist, the search for awareness and meaning with a focus of the here-and-now (present moment), experiences is fundamental to the way in which I work.

Gestalt therapy in its approach understands that awareness of self may have diminished or become blocked by negative thought patterns and behaviours that can leave people feeling unhappy, stuck or distressed. I work collaboratively with clients to deepen awareness of these blocks and unhelpful patterns, and from this place, a choiceful change can emerge.

My sessions are based in Greater London and are easily accessible from Camden Town and Kings Cross and St Pancras Station or Angel station. Please contact me to inquire further or book an initial assessment session/on-going therapy sessions.
