People seek therapy for different reasons, life issues, trauma due to mental or physical events, loss of a loved one, a breakdown of a relationship. Therapy is a route to discover ways of managing. I work with Couples, Individuals and Young Adults.
I offer a relaxed, compassionate and safe space where you can explore your difficulties and begin to understand your past behaviours and how they link to present day anxieties and feelings of depression. Through the therapy you will develop a greater sense of awareness and develop your approach to life and its challenges in a way that provides confidence and change.
In addition to my private work, I also work with staff and clients at a Mental Health Charity in London. My earlier career involved working with families, children and young adults for 14 years. This experience stirred my interest in how people behave within relationships and the question of ‘how to help break the cycle of behaviour?’ led me to change my course of work. I now work with couples and individuals who require help in many areas, couples who find it challenging to relate to each other and individuals who experience trouble in forming and maintaining relationships.
I am experienced at working with couples who are struggling to stay together or trying to part amicably. Sometimes it can be difficult to hear one another and you are unable to express your concerns. I also work with couples who experience issues on becoming parents (fertility/adoption) or with those who find it difficult to make the decision to parent because of their own past experiences.
I trained at Tavistock Relationships (formerly The Tavistock Centre for Couple Relationships) attaining the Post-Graduate Diploma in Psychodynamic Couple and Individual Psychotherapy and Counselling. I am a Member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP), and fully comply with its Ethical Framework.
