How does therapy work?
Coming from a background as an editor and writer, I see therapy as a way to better understand the narratives of our lives and the stories we believe about ourselves. These may have been created as a result of earlier experiences, the society and culture we live in, or any other reason we're yet to discover.
Therapy is a chance to explore your narrative in a confidential and professional space. Sometimes it's a case of reclaiming your story, perhaps after a shock event, sometimes it's about redefining your story if life feels like it has drifted off course. Either way, therapy can help you become the author again, able to confront whatever problems you have with self-belief and feel confident about your future.
Ultimately, I believe that as a client, you have all the answers and resources within you – my role is to help you bring them to light.
How do I work?
As an integrative counsellor, I draw on a range of psychotherapy models to create a style that suits you.
I'm based in 3 locations (W1 central London, Kings Cross, Kentish Town), and I can also arrange to work on site within corporate organisations. We can work on an open-ended basis or agree to a specific number of sessions.
I currently have availability on Tuesday evenings in Central London and Friday mornings in Kentish Town.
I've worked with clients from a diverse range of ages, cultures, sexualities and religious beliefs on issues including:
Anxiety and depression
Loss & bereavement
Addiction (sex/love, drugs, food)
I have written for the e-journal Contemporary Psychotherapy about my own experience of therapy as a client and how this influenced my early training as a therapist.
