City of London counselling and psychotherapy in Central London: I am a Registered Member MBACP (Senior Accred) counsellor & psychotherapist and UKRC Independent Practitioner working in the city area of central London between Liverpool St, Moorgate, London Bridge and The Bank, EC4, offering counselling and psychotherapy for a variety of difficulties including anxiety, depression, relationships, stress, anger, work-life balance, boredom, identity and personal development.

A senior accredited counsellor with 18 years experience in addition to a previous commercial career and with a good understanding of the difficulty in maintaining a work - life balance .

I have 18 years experience as a professional counsellor / psychotherapist working in central London and offer private and confidential counselling and psychotherapy to adult individuals working or living in the City / Bank / Moorgate / Liverpool Street / London Bridge area of central London who may have identified specific personal difficulties and / or want to understand more about themselves in order to allow choice, better work-life balance and movement in life. I practise in a traditional, face to face, psychoanalytically informed integrative style offering both empathy and rationale, gently challenging enough to promote real, lasting change facilitating stronger relationships at home, work and alone.

Keeping a healthy work life balance in a city as competitive as London takes courage and self-confidence. Keeping the treadmill going can leave you feeling unfulfilled and that your personal ambitions are being ignored while stepping down from it can leave you feeling judged that you can't keep up and that you're a loser! It's a lose - lose situation that can lead to burn out and depression.

Before my training as a professional counsellor 17 years ago I worked in central London as a trainer, coach and manager in a corporate capacity and have good, sympathetic experience of City life and understand the difficult work-life balance between a successful career and personal ambition.

New Year. New resolutions? Why don't they always work? Too strict, too harsh, too all or nothing? Counselling can help with making realistic changes over a period of time that you can keep so they become part of who you are, not a quick fix diet today and then in one months time start bingeing all over again.

Counselling / psychotherapy in central London can help with:

  • anxiety / guilt
  • depression, loss of enjoyment, drive, enthusiasm
  • intimacy / relationship difficulties
  • boredom, creativity and motivation
  • low confidence, self-esteem or arrogance
  • stress, anger
  • work-life balance, ambition, burn out, personal development
  • home, identity and cultural differences
  • an ending, eg relationship, work, ambition, hope, life stage.

    Habits: everyone has habits and often they help us get along in life without having to think things through all the time. But what if the habit is to always defer, put off, run away, take the short term easy solution ? AND THAT'S THE SAME AS PEOPLE PLEASING - when you don't challenge but go along with. Then you get stuck and out of control. It can lead to a reactive lifestyle where difficult decisions and choices are not made and life does not develop.
    So the habit is to always accept where you are / what you have but "it's OK because tomorrow I'll have it my way!" This is a kind of split life lived in two halves : today is grim but tomorrow is payback time! But as a habit all this has done is reinforce an old (childhood) belief that you don't have the authority to change anything now so don't bother trying. It further destroys your self confidence.
    Psychodynamic counselling helps to recognise these old habits and to make them conscious and so promote choice in life.

    The issues and feelings that counselling / psychotherapy can help with are too many to list but in the menu at the top of this page I have talked about a few of them. If you do not see the specific issue that concerns you but like the general style I write in, then please call or e-mail to see how we may work together.
