In my practice I offer Psychotherapy, Psychological Counselling and Supervision for individuals and groups.
I meet people of all ages and backgrounds in Sydenham SE26 (before Covid also in New Cross SE14) for ongoing in-depth psychotherapy and time-limited and focused psychological counselling, which can include elements of coaching and mediation.
Due to COVID-19 therapy is mainly happening online. There is an ongoing phased and secure process of going back to in person sessions as and when appropriate depending on government guidelines and based on the risks in each individual situation.
On a simple level, therapy is about creating a space where in-depth conversations and new experiences can unfold. In an atmosphere of genuine curiosity, the focus is on careful listening and attentive reflection in a non-judgemental way, which brings about an opening of the dilemmas at hand.
What emerges in therapy, quite often, is the quality or lack of connection in relationships in the experience of daily living, which over a period of time can manifest in anxiety, low mood or mood swings, low self-esteem, stress, feelings of isolation, lack of meaning, addictive and self-harming behaviours to name a few. People also report a lack of creativity or purpose in their lives or may find it hard to adapt to change.
Whatever brings the client to therapy, and the reasons can be manifold, being in conversation with a dedicated professional in a confidential space offers the possibility of clarifying one’s experience of being in the world.
