Psychotherapy and Counselling

Psychotherapy and counselling provide a safe, confidential space where you can discover how past experiences, current problems, or anxieties about the future, may be affecting your ability to live your life as well and as fully as possible.

Counselling addresses specific, current problems. Psychotherapy is more about dealing with deeper, perhaps more hidden issues, that impact on your relationships, your work, or your general ability to enjoy life.

People are often referred to a therapist by their doctor to get help for stress, depression, eating or sexual disorders; or they may be drawn to counselling or therapy due to a life crisis such as bereavement or illness, redundancy or relationship difficulties. Sometimes it is more a feeling of dissatisfaction, of being ‘stuck’, or having lost their way.

At my practice in Central London, I work with my clients in a flexible and interactive way, and my approach is very much geared to the specific needs of each individual, couple, or group. I work holistically, which means treating the whole person, giving the same degree of importance to the spiritual and the sacred as the physical, mental and emotional aspects of the self.

Working together, we can look at how you relate to yourself and to others, how you cope with life, and what you need to make you happier and more fulfilled. Sharing your concerns and speaking openly is empowering and healing. It can help you to feel less alone with whatever is troubling you, to see where changes need to be made, and enable you to face life’s challenges and opportunities more confidently.
