My name Xavier Bonfill, I am a UKCP accredited and registered psychotherapist, with practices in Paddington/Maida Vale and The City of London.
Life can be wonderful at times, but it can also present difficult challenges. When difficulty strikes it's easy to feel confused, lonely and stuck, perhaps with a sense of never being able to escape.
It is at those times that we find it difficult to talk and express our worries and anxieties, and feel ourselves unable to be in the world as we would like to be.
There may be a common perception that counselling and psychotherapy is unnecessary, perhaps reserved for the wealthy or only for people with severe psychiatric complaints. The truth is that the right support can help everybody by providing a ground for realisation, clear inner peace and freedom.
I believe that what we consider our weaknesses in fact contain our greatest strengths and that through appropriate exploration, with professional support, we can finally become aware of the veils that cover our true selves and emerge more truthful and happy, becoming who we really are.
To find help in difficult moments can be daunting and scary: I have been there myself. It is normal to feel that sharing our most intimate visions of life, our fantasies and our worries with a stranger is difficult. It's easy to think that we are wrong and that there's no hope for us. However, working with a suitable therapist, in total confidence and in a safe space, can be most transformative.
I seek to keep my clients safe while they sail through the difficult waters of their lives, and I aim always to be present, supportive and warm, working from the heart with clear ethical boundaries.
I provide a safe space in which we, together, can explore your personal universe in absolute privacy, confidentiality and professionalism.
