There are many reasons that people seek counselling and psychotherapy. Life can be challenging and there are times when we may need help to navigate our way through it. Often our early experiences within our families don't equip us to manage life as well as we would like. This can cause difficulties in our relationships, both with ourselves and others and can lead us to repeat patterns that are unhelpful and leave us with depression, stress or anxiety or feeling stuck and unfulfilled. If you grew up in an invalidating environment, you may not have internalised a model of how healthy relationships develop and therefore might find it hard to make or sustain satisfying partnerships or friendships. You may also find it difficult to develop confidence in yourself, whether in relationships, work or other areas of your life and be experiencing low self-esteem.
Whilst our early experiences shape and develop our sense of ourselves and others and how we understand the world, you may be more focussed on your current difficulties. You might be struggling with addictions, social isolation and loneliness or be trapped in a relationship where there is abuse and be finding it difficult to extricate yourself. You may be seeking a psychotherapist because you are finding it difficult to control your anger or be overwhelmed by work stresses or unable to make progress in many areas of your life. Perhaps you are experiencing social anxiety or are troubled about issues relating to your gender or sexuality Whatever brings you to therapy, we can work together to help you to understand yourself better, to manage your feelings in a more productive way, to build better relationships and to develop a more meaningful and rewarding life.
Prior to setting up my North London psychotherapy practice, I trained as a social worker, then as an individual and group psychotherapist. I have had over 20 years experience in the counselling and psychotherapy field, including 10 years in an NHS secondary care mental health setting, working with both individuals and groups. Therapy can offer a warm, supportive, non-judgemental space where we can reflect together to try to make sense of what troubles you and to bring about meaningful change.
