What to Expect

An initial assessment appointment allows you to see if you feel comfortable with me, share what troubles you, ask questions, clarify confidentiality, and decide if therapy may assist you. Please use a contact option on the right to book an introductory assessment appointment in Twickenham or Whitton, Twickenham.

Counselling

Counselling centres on listening to you, and assisting you. You determine what matter regarding your childhood or adulthood you discuss. The objective of counselling is to help you to speak about a difficulty and find a way forward which is appropriate for you.

Integrative Therapy

Integrative therapy selects therapies to fit your preferences and the issues you experience. It considers your subjective experiences and choices. An aim of integrative therapy is to help you develop your self-awareness.

Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy focuses on you, and you gaining insight into the difficulties you confront. It explores your ideas, emotions and relevant events in your life. Psychotherapy aims to help you change or find appropriate methods of managing.

Thoughts on Mental Health

We're all aware of how regular exercise can improve our physical health and wellbeing, helping us sustain a healthy lifestyle and fitness levels. But exercise also promotes a healthy state of mind; off-setting the build-up of adrenalin, anxiety and the slump of depression. It allows us to remain in the present moment and improves the quality of our lived experience. During exercise, an elevated heart rate and focused breathing enlivens the body's sensations with oxygen, supplies energy to our muscles, and releases endorphins and serotonin to the brain. As muscles are contracted and released, the build-up of tension in our limbs, neck, back and shoulders is dispersed, as well as stretching out knotted muscles. Pleasurable sensations reduce stress levels, helping us to regulate our emotions, breathe deeply and relax.

Too much fast food, coffee and alcohol might give an initial boost of euphoria, but not an overall sense of wellbeing. The more you put refined sugars, saturated fats and alcohol into your body, the more you end up destabilising your moods and emotions. I recommend a Mediterranean diet, high in omega 3 fatty acids from fish and eggs, unsaturated fat and antioxidants from olive oil and nuts, and vitamin B from fruit and vegetables. These can help stave off depression because they stabilise blood sugar levels, regulate adrenalin, and increase the flow of neurotransmitters such as serotonin. Unrefined grains, Brazil nuts and cereals can also increase your intake of selenium for better neuro-connectivity in the brain. Snacking on these foods, rather than sugary cakes, sweets or crisps, is the easiest way of creating a mood-boosting diet. This ensures your glycaemic index (GI) and blood sugar levels do not fluctuate, offering a sustained level of energy release, rather than the sugar rushes associated with high anxiety and the slump of depression.
