Coping with life's difficulties can feel overwhelming and can lead to you struggling emotionally Making the decision to seek therapy can sometimes feel like a daunting experience but it can also be a liberating one. There is often a message in our feelings of depression, loss, anxiety and panic that it is important that we listen to. As such, times of crisis in our lives can also provide important opportunities to grow and change.
I am a fully qualified counsellor and psychotherapist and registered member of the BACP. I have 25 years of experience as a therapist working both in private practice and in the NHS. I see both individuals and couples from my practices in Isleworth, Brentford Middlesex and Hendon, North West London.
Counselling and psychotherapy is a collaborative process where the aim is to help you make sense of your thoughts and feelings so that you can then make informed decisions about what you can do to begin to feel more in control of your life. Often just putting things into words can help you to see how to move forward. Sometimes looking into the past can also be important in helping you to understand more about your present circumstances and help you to bring about lasting change. Challenging negative thinking and trying out new ways of behaving can also be important aspects of the therapeutic experience.
People from all walks of life seek therapy for many different reasons. You may be facing a challenge, such as anxiety depression bereavement or job loss; you may be struggling with a specific issue, such as an eating disorder; you may have noticed that you have a pattern of destructive relationships or you may want simply to learn more about yourself. If you feel that you have not found the answers to your life's issues alone, then talking to a trained psychotherapist can help you take charge of your life and move forward to a more fulfilling future.
From my two practices in Isleworth, Brentford Middlesex and Hendon, North West London, I specialise in working with clients who are experiencing:
I work within an integrative framework as a counsellor and psychotherapist, which means that I draw together a number of different therapeutic approaches and I can tailor my approach to your individual needs. Deciding to seek help can often feel daunting. You may also have questions as to what it all entails. For that reason, I am available for a confidential talk on the phone, prior to potentially arranging an initial session.
The reality is that for most people it is a relief to be able to explore difficult thoughts and feelings in a safe and confidential environment. What we learn in counselling and psychotherapy ,and how we change ,can lead to a lasting sense of empowerment and well being .
