I am a psychotherapist working in Queens Park, North West London, offering a confidential space in which you can talk about your problems.
RE COVID 19
Most people are feeling isolated, helpless or frightened because of Covid-19. We are having to face many sudden losses - jobs, physical and social contact or even the loss of a much loved relative or friend, often without the opportunity to say goodbye to them. These feelings can, understandably, feel overwhelming.
Talking to an experienced therapist can help you manage these emotions and to find a way through these difficult times. I am offering counselling sessions which deal specifically with the impact that Covid-19 is having on our lives.
Our 50 minute sessions would be once weekly for as long as you feel the need for support. They can be either on the phone or via confidential and secure email until the Government restrictions are lifted. After that, we could meet in my consulting room in Queens Park if you wish. I am happy to see both adults and young people.
Writing down, or speaking about how you feel, can in itself relieve some of your initial tension and be a beneficial part of the therapeutic process. It is often easier to gather your thoughts and recognise your feelings when you are in your own space. And then, if and when we do find ourselves in the consulting room together, it will hopefully be easier for us to to build on your process towards regaining your mental health.
Fees will be discussed and based on your current income situation. I appreciate that paying for therapy at this time can feel just like another burden to carry. Hopefully, it will be worth it!
I can offer you either Brief or Long Term Psychotherapy and Counselling.
There are many reasons as to why people decide to seek help but finding an appropriate counsellor or psychotherapist can be daunting. When we are feeling depressed or low we can become confused about the uncomfortable or even frightening feelings we may be experiencing and so trying to understand, or voice them, feels to be impossible.
I hope the following pages will give you the information you are looking for, with regards to my way of working and the counselling, psychotherapy and supervision I am able to offer. If you find that you need more information, in order to make a decision about having some therapy, then please do not hesitate to contact me via the details at the bottom of this page.

What Can I Do To Help You ?
Initially, we would set up an 'assessment meeting' during which we could discuss your current difficulties and think about the appropriate therapy or supervision options. This could also be a one-off session in which, having explored your problems, you may ultimately feel that this has been therapeutic in itself and enough for now. You may always return at a later date if needed. It may be, however, that during the session it becomes clear that you need a different sort of help and I will try to refer you to somewhere more suited to your needs.
Please e-mail me a few lines telling me what you might be struggling with at firstname.lastname@example.org or call on 07889 036 267.
All enquiries are treated in confidence.
