What to Expect

An introductory assessment session allows you to see if you feel comfortable with me, share what troubles you, ask questions, understand confidentiality, and decide if therapy may benefit you. Please use a contact option on the right to book an initial assessment meeting in West End, London.

Counselling

Counselling centres on listening to you, and supporting you. You decide which issue regarding your childhood and/or adult life you explore. An objective of counselling is to enable you to speak about a difficulty and discover a solution that is right for you.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) (England and Wales) recommends counselling for depression.

Gestalt Therapy

Gestalt therapy contemplates the entire you. It focuses on what it is to be you in the present. The intention of gestalt therapy is to help you heighten your awareness.

Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy focuses on you, and you gaining insight into the problems you confront. It considers your ideas, emotions and significant events in your history. Psychotherapy intends to help you develop or discover suitable methods of coping.
