Counselling and therapy in London
I am an experienced trainee psychotherapist, working in private practice. I am based in Kentish Town and Paddington.
In addition to a private practice, I have extensive experience in the voluntary sector for charities such as HomeStart, FreshStart, Help Counselling Centre and NHS Music Psychotherapies Services. I have worked specifically with women survivors of trauma, physical, emotional and sexual violence and abuse.
My training is in Integrative Transpersonal Psychotherapy (UKCP and BACP accredited), which enables me to use a range of therapeutic approaches. This may include psychodynamic interpretations (early life issues), cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT), Humanistic, Gestalt (chair work) and existential perspectives, incorporating dream work and creative imagination techniques (visualisation and drawings).
My approach draws on a broad theory base so my engagement with each client is flexible, unique and tailored to their specific requirements.
As a therapist, I hold and provide a safe non-judgemental environment where you can develop and mature at your own pace. I like to take an active part in the work we do as I view the therapeutic relationship as a co-creative process. Every therapy task is about building a relationship that will itself become the agent of change as I believe that it is the relationship that heals.
I have a keen interest in the exploration of clients coming from different cultures who are struggling to find their roots and questioning their identity.
I work with the following issues:
- Depression and anxieties
- Life crisis
- Stuckness and lack of meaning
- Inner child work
- Personal development and self-esteem
- Life transition/changes
- Identity crisis
- Relationship difficulties
I work both in English and French and my practises are in Paddington and Kentish Town. Fees are available on request.
