How can counselling help you? Are you feeling sad, depressed or low, lonely or anxious and struggling to cope? Maybe work is difficult or an important relationship is making you unhappy. Are you feeling unhealthy or maybe you are struggling with an addiction. Do you feel that you are living the life you want or are you living on autopilot? If so counselling can help you. We all experience difficulties in our lives when we may feel we need some additional support.
Counselling creates a space so you can explore difficulties, worries and anxieties, your relationship with yourself and with others. It offers the opportunity to consider new possibilities, make choices and help resolve problems. With new understanding and self-awareness comes the opportunity to change. Whether you choose counselling or psychotherapy, as your counsellor, I will work with you in a non directive way helping you to explore and find effective solutions to difficulties you may be having. My main approach is Person Centered and I also work with mindfulness based approaches which can really enhance counselling and provide a portable toolkit for you to use in between sessions.
I offer a time limited, solution-focused approach for issues which have occurred relatively recently in your life.
I also provide psychotherapy for any problems you may have which are more long term. I offer flexible appointment times including evenings and weekends. Based in Ealing, West London, close to Acton and Hammersmith.
