Emotional difficulties and painful feelings are a fact of life, but sometimes they can become so overwhelming, unmanageable and long-lasting that we don’t know what to do or where to turn. We can become distressed, desperate, anxious and hopeless. Sometimes we find ourselves repeating destructive patterns of thinking and behaving without understanding why. Sometimes we just have a feeling of something being wrong but can't articulate what that might be.

Talking to friends and family can sometimes help, but if that isn’t an option, isn’t helping, or you feel that the problem runs far deeper or has been going on too long then it is time to consider counselling or psychotherapy.

Seeing a counsellor or psychotherapist will allow you to talk to someone who will listen without judgement and will support you in coping with your current circumstances. They will offer a fresh and sometimes challenging perspective that allows you to get to the root of what is troubling you.

By examining your past in detail we can understand the relationships and events that have shaped you. and your more hidden, unconscious thoughts and feelings. The process of exploration will help you discover how you really feel, why you do what you do, and how to work toward deep and positive change. Over time, this will lessen your fears, ease your pain and help you feel in control of aspects of your life.

When choosing a counsellor or psychotherapist it is essential that you choose someone who is registered with at least one of the accrediting bodies, these include the BACP, UKCP and BPS. Choosing an accredited counsellor or therapist will ensure that you work with someone who is fully qualified, supervised and accountable.

I have extensive experience of working with individuals who are living with a wide range of difficulties including:

  • Stress
  • Depression
  • Relationships and sexuality
  • Panic Attacks
  • Anxiety
  • Childhood and adult trauma
  • Bereavement
  • Redundancy
  • Miscarriage
  • Post-natal depression
  • Pain, illness, injury and disfigurement
  • Family difficulties

    My North London counselling practice is located at Kentish Town Health Centre and at dedicated therapy rooms on Leighton Road. Both premises are in Kentish Town and are a short walk from Kentish Town underground and Kentish Town Thameslink station.

    I am also within easy reach of Camden Town, Chalk Farm, Gospel Oak, Belsize Park, Hampstead, Holloway, Highgate, Dartmouth Park and Tufnell Park. My premises are a short walk or bus ride from Kentish Town West and Camden Road Overground Stations.

    If you are considering counselling or psychotherapy, but are not sure if it is right for you, we can arrange an initial consultation to discuss your concerns. An initial consultation carries no obligation to continue, though the usual fee will be charged.

    Decades of research proves that the single most important contributor to successful therapy isn’t the therapist’s approach, but the client-therapist relationship. Therefore it is essential that you choose to work with someone you feel you can open up to.
