Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy, Soho, Central London, W1
I work with people to find an understanding of their emotional life and the important way that this connects with others and our own way in the world. This exploration of identity and relationship with a sense of belonging that may enable us in living a well-lived life...
Why Might You be Here...
Whatever might have prompted you to consider that it might be helpful to talk to a psychotherapist or counsellor, choosing that person can be a daunting prospect as all relationships start as a step into the unknown. To help with this, I can offer an initial consultation, which can be extended to a second consultation if required, before deciding whether to embark on the journey together.
If it’s answers we seek, we have to be asking the right questions. We might say that you are the most important person you are likely to meet your life – can you be intrigued in yourself?
Often, specific issues bring people to psychotherapy, but it may be more of a feeling that you are ‘stuck’, perhaps finding it difficult to bring purpose or meaning to aspects of your life. Are you struggling to express yourself in important relationships? Perhaps you have put these difficult questions to the back of your mind unaddressed and ‘coped’ in other ways, but these feelings still have a habit of returning, often unannounced.
Thoughtful honest consideration of these issues in the presence of a psychoanalytically-minded psychotherapist might help you have some understanding on how they might be affecting your present. Psychotherapy and counselling may enable you to gain different perspectives of self that were previously not considered. A new awareness that allows you ways of seeing or doing things differently, difficulties are looked at in depth and we might enquire what is behind them which 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 experiences. There are many different ways to creatively place yourself in the world, to examine your relationships, self-identity and sense of belonging using words and imagery.
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 psychotherapy might be useful and that we might be suited to start that journey together. Without any obligation, this initial consultation could help you consider a self-enquiry to a deeper understanding of the possible causes of such thoughts and feelings, potentially offering a richer sense of connection with yourself and others.
