In an increasingly busy and noisy world we can sometimes find ourselves feeling anxious and alone. Mental health seems to be discussed in the media on a daily basis but for those who are feeling depressed, anxious and stressed this can offer little comfort. Most of us at one time or another need some extra help and support. Psychotherapy and counselling can offer the support and guidance that you need, whether dealing with new challenges that you're struggling with or emotions and difficulties that you have carried alone for too long.
How can I help?
I am an experienced Adult and Adolescent Psychotherapist and Counsellor practising counselling and psychotherapy in Harley Street London, Brentwood Essex and Hoddesdon in Hertfordshire. I provide counselling and psychotherapy in a safe, confidential and non-judgmental environment. Within my private practice I work with individuals on an open-ended or time limited basis for an agreed time period, with the aim of enabling you to enhance your life and change unhelpful patterns and behaviours. My Harley Street psychotherapy practice is a short walk from Oxford Circus and Marylebone. The Warley Hill Practice in Brentwood and my Hertfordshire practice are within easy reach of public transport or by car.
Psychotherapy in Harley Street and Brentwood
I am an experienced therapist and have been successful in helping clients through counselling and psychotherapy who have experienced difficulties with stress, anxiety, depression, panic attacks, self harm, eating disturbances, relationship issues and bereavement to name a few. I also work extensively with patients suffering with chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia and related illnesses. Making the decision to look for a counsellor can be daunting, but it is the first step. My counselling and psychotherapy practices in Harley Street and Brentwood offer a confidential, quiet and reflective space where we can explore whatever is on your mind.
How does Psychotherapy and Counselling work?
Psychodynamic psychotherapy aims to assist you in exploring, understanding and changing unhelpful thoughts and behaviours that are troubling you. Some people start therapy because they are having a difficult time in their relationship, others because they are experiencing stressful and upsetting thoughts and feelings that no one else knows about. Loss and bereavement can leave someone feeling completely isolated, even though there are others around them in the same situation. During the therapy we will also explore some of you earlier life relationships and experiences. It can be difficult to understand how early experiences can affect you later in life but these can affect us a great deal in terms of how we relate to others and ourselves.
