Counselling & Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy in Soho, Central London, W1
Why Might You be Here...
Whatever might have prompted you to seek and consider psychotherapy and having made a decision that it might be helpful to talk to a psychotherapist, that you not want to struggle alone, the choosing of a counsellor or psychotherapist can be a daunting prospect.
Specific issues bring people to psychotherapy. It may be that you feel stuck, finding it difficult to bring purpose or meaning to aspects of your life. Of finding a voice. Are you struggling to make sense or express yourself in important relationships? Perhaps more of an understanding of these important connections—with both self and others at home or at work—that provoke difficult thoughts and feelings? Perhaps we have put these difficult questions to the back of our mind unaddressed and ‘coped’ in other ways but these feelings still have a habit of returning, often unannounced.
A psychotherapists' nonjudgmental and sympathetic ear in thoughtful honest discussion might allow you to see how these issues are affecting your present. Counselling and psychotherapy may enable you to gain different perspectives of self that were previously not considered. A new awareness that may allows you ways of seeing or doing things differently.
Psychotherapy or counselling may enable you to find different understandings and new ways to think about emotional life. To look at these symptoms of life, difficulties are looked at in depth and we might enquire what is behind them. We might say that the most important person you are ever likely to meet is yourself, so with an intrigue into self, your motives and desires, by talking through these issues finding new ways of thinking could potentially could lead to new insight.
I work with a range of difficulties, being particularly interested in issues that relate to self-image and authenticity associated with your own life experience. To examine your relationships, self-identity and sense of belonging.
I can offer a safe and confidential central London space, in Soho W1, with time to explore issues that might be troubling you. An initial consultation might help you make this important decision of whether we might be suited to work together. Either one-to-one or as a member of a weekly group meeting, without any obligation, this initial consultation could help you consider a journey to a deeper understanding of the possible causes of such thoughts and feelings potentially offering a richer sense of connection with both yourself and others.
