Psychotherapy in Stoke Newington & London Bridge
If you're struggling with something and considering psychotherapy, I'm here for you.
I am a registered (MBACP) psychotherapist in Stoke Newington and London Bridge (UK) that believes every client deserves a fresh approach. You are the expert on your own life, yet we can all benefit from a skilled perspective on recent or longer-term difficulties. Generally working in open-ended contracts, I am creative, confident and dedicated to my work. I have seen the power of careful listening with presence and compassion to bring about real, meaningful change. If you'd like an initial conversation or to arrange a meeting, please get in touch.
Areas of work

Here's some of the more common areas that bring people to therapy with brief comment on my approach.
Issues around weight and relationship to food or drink, self-esteem, work-place politics, public speaking, or in the bedroom.
If you're feeling deeply unmotivated and disconnected, unable to engage in life, or a low mood that feels inescapable no matter what you do or try, psychotherapy can help you move forward.
Loss and bereavement
This could be grief, or the death of loved ones, serious illness of yourself and others, or the loss of something or someone. My offer is to support you at a difficult time and stay with you for as long as you need as you try to adjust.
Whether physical or emotional, regular or infrequent: the intentional hurting of yourself for some reason that seems to make sense, yet at another level you question.
Stress and anxiety
Whether at home or at work, generalised or specific/triggered. Stress and anxiety are an increasing problem in modern life. You can improve your relationship with it.
This could be about reaching your potential, eliminating self-imposed blocks, becoming more in control of your life or getting out of it more of what you really want. Coming to therapy doesn't mean there's something 'wrong' with you, only that you perceive room for improvement.
The source of great highs and sometimes unbearable lows: family, partners whether long-term or short-term, friends, children.
Internally or externally directed; profound and frequent feelings of rage that feel impossible to contain; an emotional dynamic that upsets the relationships most important to you. Can anger ever be righteous? Do you need anger management, or is it really about appropriate expression? Questions we can explore together.
Gender is complicated, each of us struggling to determine or discover our own relation to social norms, structures and institutions. Navigating this territory is difficult. We'll work toward greater clarity.
Few things come with shame as those around sexuality. Taking a steadfastly open and non-judgemental approach, we'll approach this area with sensitivity and tact yet determination to untangle what's going on.
Western philosophy came up with the Enlightenment; the East with enlightenment. The difference is the 'the'.
Here for you.
