Want to start face to face counselling but unable to due to current covid19 restrictions?
Then why not start via live video link and then carry on face to face in my private room when it's safe to do so.
The room is quite large and can accommodate social distancing when current restrictions are relaxed and travel is permitted again.

There is nothing shameful about wanting to enjoy your life more: it's your life - enjoy it!

" With 20 years experience of one to one counselling with individuals who live or work in Central London, I help clients who are experiencing emotional difficulties in their lives or are simply looking for change. I work in an integrative way, making sense of both early and current life experiences.

The majority of my work is around anxiety, depression, confidence and relationships, which at times can feel too much or impossible to manage. They are not impossible to manage but you may need a guide to help you through "the fog".

I work in two ways, brief focal therapy or open ended.

In brief focal therapy we discuss and agree a specific focus and have a short course of, say, 10 sessions.

Open ended means that we do not put a cap on it or create a goal/ target straight away but allow more time to explore what has been happening, how you got to where you are now, what habits you've picked up on the way and where you want to go to in the future. Ofcourse, it will stop at some point but when it feels right for you.

This traditional psychodynamic style of counselling is focused on changing old habits that are no longer useful and developing new habits that put you more in control of your life. There is nothing shameful about wanting to be more in control, more determined and more focused.
It's your life, enjoy it.

I am a professionally qualified (3 year course) Accredited Member of the BACP (Senior Accred) 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 20 years experience in addition to a previous corporate managerial career and with a good understanding of the difficulty in maintaining a work - life balance .

I practise in a traditional, relaxed, supportive, face to face, psychoanalytically informed style offering both empathy and rationale, gently challenging enough to promote real, lasting change boosting confidence, self esteem, creativity and 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

Counselling / psychotherapy in central London can help with:

  • anxiety / guilt
  • depression, loss of enjoyment, drive, enthusiasm
  • intimacy / relationship difficulties / divorce
  • 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.

    Psychodynamic counselling helps to recognise 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.
