North London (Angel, Upper Holloway, Finsbury Park, Covent Garden)
I work with adults in person at my counselling and psychotherapy practice in North London.
To make appointment times as convenient as possible for you, I can arrange to meet with you in an afternoon or evening session to suit your weekly routine. I do offer you the opportunity, at no cost to you, to contact me by phone to ask questions with no obligations to commit to therapy. This conversation will allow you to find out more about me and how I work so that you have a good sense of how we can work together.
Our first session will be an assessment discussing what brings you to therapy and what you hope to get out of it. I believe that honesty and trust are key qualities in a therapeutic relationship. I am committed to providing counselling and psychotherapy in a warm, safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment where together we can explore your feelings, thoughts and find a way forward.
Should you then choose to engage in therapy, we will agree an initial time frame to work towards and review your progress regularly. I work with clients from diverse backgrounds and ethnicities.
Whether you are experiencing general problems such as depression, anxiety, low self esteem or a specific problem related to trauma, relationship difficulties; bereavement or life changing circumstances, I believe that together we can support you and explore your concerns and worries so that you gain a better understanding of yourself with a sense of increased well-being.
SKYPE and PHONE THERAPY: .
I also provide therapy via skype and telephone as I feel that these are mediums which suit many individuals given the demands on one’s personal and professional life. Please email me for further details should you wish to receive counselling/therapy via skype/phone
