- 2 minutes Holborn tube station. I am an experienced & qualified psychotherapist mostly working with a mix of cognitive behavioural therapy CBT & Psychodynamic theory. I have seen countless clients improve with these techniques over the years. I am experienced in treating both individuals & couples in private practice. My approach to helping is active & engaged, non- judgemental, relaxed, supportive & collaborative. I also have a good sense of humour. I am committed to providing therapy that brings meaningful change to your life!
Why people seek therapy
People seek counselling & psychotherapy with a wide range of concerns such as, feeling stressed & anxious. Feeling fearful generally or in certain situations. Coming to terms with loss such as bereavement, divorce or redundancy. Also lack of confidence, self-esteem or an inability to make or sustain good relationships as well as repeatedly becoming involved in unsatisfactory & destructive relationships. Addictions, & associated problems around addiction. Feeling sad or empty, lacking a sense of purpose in life.
How does psychotherapy help?
Counselling & Psychotherapy can help reduce stress and anxiety & help us become more aware of how we relate to ourselves & others. It can also provide a space for insight, growth & ultimately change. Therapy is also a relationship & is the connection between client & therapist which can also contribute to change. A trusting therapeutic relationship encourages us to be our true selves, challenges us to see our blind spots, & supports us in accessing our strengths so we can let go of our defenses that keep us from moving forward.
My style is an eclectic mix of psychodynamically informed & cognitive behavioural therapy CBT
Psychodynamic therapy is designed to help clients explore the full range of their emotions, including feelings they may not be aware of. By making the unconscious elements of their life a part of their present experience, psychodynamic therapy helps people to understand how their behaviour & mood can be affected by unresolved issues & unconscious feelings
Cognitive behavioural therapy CBT on the other hand focuses on how you think about the things going on in your life- your thoughts, beliefs & attitudes (cognitive processes), & how this can impact on the way you behave & how you deal with emotional problems. CBT also looks at how you can change any negative patterns or beliefs you may hold, that may be causing you difficulties. By doing this, CBT can help change the way you think & feel about yourself, others, & your life.
