Often a crisis or major life event starts us thinking about therapy or counselling for ourselves. Sometimes, though, we are just miserable or depressed in our day to day lives, and looking for a way to gain greater clarity around our thoughts, feelings and behaviour.
Often we want to improve the quality of our lives and have better relationships, or have someone to talk to and listen to our story in a supportive way.
Psychotherapy gives us the time and space in a non-judgemental, safe, supportive and confidential environment to reflect on what works for us in our lives and to recognise changes we might like to make.
Through therapy we gain greater awareness of our emotions and our behaviours. With this awareness we feel more in control of our lives, are able to make informed choices, and we come to recognise more options available to us. In this way we often become more contented with our lives and who we are.

PSYCHOTHERAPY / COUNSELLING //
I offer counselling and psychotherapy to individuals and couples in English and Spanish.
I have over 20 years of experience in the field of counselling and psychotherapy. I trained in the NHS and was employed there for 15 years, providing me with a solid background in working with people who suffer from mental health problems. I trained with Relate where I deepened my understanding of human relationships and the dynamics of couples, and worked as a couple counsellor. I have been working in private practice in East Sheen for over a decade. Currently I am also working as a voluntary counsellor in a school.
Over my long years of experience I have come to understand the power of true listening and the profound effect that this has for both me and my clients. It is through this experience that a bond based on trust, and a safe place are created. This is the most powerful tool that I have encountered over any theory or school of thought. It is through this process that most of us would experience over time a shift in the way we perceive ourselves and others in the world. It is an empowering process that promotes growth and development.
You may be suffering from crippling mental health problems or more benign life issues, such as dealing with conflict, confusion, relationship problems, stress and anxiety, lack of self esteem, family problems, bereavement, feeling stuck and many more. All these symptoms tend to get diluted and loose their power over time, as the process of feeling understood at a a much deeper level translates into feeling more accepting of yourself. At this point we see that a shift has taken place, as you will feel more integrated and more at ease with yourself.
This process described above takes time and commitment. It takes self reflection and engagement. It is an investment in your self with the intention to better equip you for the future. You do not need to be put off by this. We can discuss in your first appointment what would suit you and would fit into your life. I aim to be flexible so do not hesitate to contact me if you feel restricted by other commitments.
The most important thing right now is that you choose the right therapist for you. Please feel free to contact me to discuss this and allow yourself time to make your decision.
