Counselling and Psychotherapy
Welcome to my page.
People seek help from a therapist for all sorts of very individual reasons. Often, these have to do with experiencing difficult or unmanageable emotions. Loss, anger, loneliness, relationship difficulties, feeling confused or unfulfilled, or wanting to be happy are some of the issues that one might want explore in therapy.
Therapy allows patients a unique space in which to discuss their feelings, doubts and concerns in a confidential environment. When feeling safe, we are more likely to further develop as individuals while getting closer to our true selves. The inquiry into the unconscious, facilitated by the therapeutic relationship, often gives insight into issues previously unknown, as well as opening up new possibilities.
I have always been interested in the emotional life of individuals and how that has come to develop. I believe the way we are cared for as children has a great impact on the way we build our lives as adults. As a psychodynamic psychotherapist I have experience in both long-term, open-ended psychodynamic psychotherapy and time limited work. I currently work in private practice in Waterloo and New Malden and as an NHS Counsellor for 'The Awareness Centre' in the borough of Lambeth.
I am a fully qualified and experienced Psychotherapist. I trained at Westminster Pastoral Foundation (WPF Therapy) in London Bridge and graduated from Roehampton University. I am member of the UK Council for Psychotherapy and abide by their Code of Ethics. I have a certificate in Psychoanalytical Psychology from Birkbeck College, University of London and trained in mindfulness for practitioners.
Starting therapy is a big decision for most people, and therefore one that is not taken lightly. It is often a difficult first step. An initial consultation, however, would give you a fairly good idea as to what the experience of therapy is like, and whether you would like us to work together.
