I am a qualified psychoanalytic psychotherapist with over 20 years’ experience working with individuals, groups and couples. I am based in North London, N8 and N16. I am able to offer sessions both in person and remotely via Zoom, Skype, FaceTime or Telephone.
My work as an individual psychotherapist begins with a first meeting, where I invite you to talk about what brings you to therapy at this point in your life. This will help me understand the internal as well as the external current circumstances of your life, and how to move forward regarding the most appropriate therapy options.
The people I work with in psychotherapy may seek psychological support for a variety of reasons. You might be feeling hindered by past or present trauma, or you may be functioning well in your life. You might be seeking psychotherapy as a means of self-development, to address major life changes, or to manage a mental health condition. You might also enter therapy as part of your training requirement. You might have been in counselling or psychotherapy before, and feel that there is further work to be done.#
If we decide to continue working together, my aim would be to help you to understand the trauma or traumas that underpin the problems you may be struggling with on a day to day basis, and to enable this understanding to be accepted by, and integrated with, your own conscious sense of who you are as a person.
