Joshua MilesPsychodynamic psychotherapist
I am an experienced psychodynamic psychotherapist who has worked for many years with a wide range of life issues such as depression, anxiety, relationship problems, family difficulties and loss and bereavement.
I am registered with the British Psychoanalytic Council and accredited with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.
Do you find yourself feeling disconnected, or as though the life you are living is not your own? Perhaps you feel dissatisfied or unhappy, in a crisis or seeking resolution for a particular difficulty.
I will listen to you carefully and thoughtfully, and provide an empathic space where you can freely unravel, explore and understand your feelings, thoughts and experiences.
Beginning the process of psychotherapy can be daunting and confusing. I offer a FREE 10 minute phone consultation where you can explain a little about your reasons for seeking psychotherapy and what you might hope to gain, and I can answer questions you may have about the process. Please call me on 07905 409 517 or send an email and I will get back to you as soon as I can.
How I Work
My approach is psychodynamic: the psychodynamic model holds the view that our current difficulties and struggles can have origins in earlier times of our lives, particularly during childhood, and that the mind conceals or retains experiences, feelings or memories which may be too painful or difficult for the conscious mind to process.
I will work with you to not only explore your conscious thoughts, feelings and experiences, but also those you may not be fully aware of, but which may be having an impact on your adult life. These could be unhelpful or repetitive patterns of thought or behaviour, or beliefs or ideas you may hold about yourself.
I offer you the chance to gain valuable self-expression and reflection on your life, to more fully understand yourself, past experiences and relationships, ultimately allowing you to live a life that feels more genuine, connected and meaningful.
Area Of Expertise
I have a specialist interest working with artists, musicians and people from creative backgrounds.
Psychodynamic psychotherapy is particularly helpful when working with people who feel blocked creatively or somehow stuck, demotivated or losing interest in their creative process or work.
I will work with you to explore possible conflicts, either past or present, which might be impacting on your creative work.
I have over 20 years experience as a songwriter, musician, music producer and poet. I understand first hand the importance of creativity, and the wide ranging influence it has on many aspects of life, and the difficulties and challenges inherent in working within creative fields.
I work from consulting rooms in Highgate N6 and Kentish Town NW5.
I also work online via Zoom
