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 and New Cross SE14 for ongoing in-depth psychotherapy and time-limited and focused psychological counselling, which can include elements of coaching and mediation.
My usual way of working is in person, but I have been conducting online therapy since March 2020 due to COVID-19. I am aiming to go back to face-to-face meetings as soon as is safely possible, but will also be able to offer online therapy going forward.
On a simple level, the aim in therapy is to create 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 dillemmas at hand.
There are a few common issues clients bring to therapy. Quite often the quality or lack of relationship and connection are at the heart of the matter, 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.
