You may be going through a difficult time in your life, or perhaps you want to deal with long-standing issues. Counselling can give you insight into, and support for, your problems by providing a space for you to talk, be heard and consider how things might change.
Generally, I provide short-term counselling of 12 weeks to look at a specific problem, or longer-term counselling of up to two years for those who wish to explore their emotions and behaviours in a greater degree of depth.
I work in North London, covering the Highgate, Muswell Hill and Crouch End areas. You are, of course, welcome to come to me if you live outside those areas.
Areas of counselling covered
Those who seek counselling have a range of presenting problems – bereavement, relationship issues, difficulties with work colleagues or friends, lack of confidence, stress, etc.
In essence, you are unhappy and it is my job to help you identify where these problems originate and, together, we will work out how you can overcome them or view them differently.
Please be aware that for addictions, I offer supportive counselling with some psychodynamic elements. This counselling is only possible if the client is undergoing, or has undergone, target-specific treatment, for example AA, and is not using the addictive substance.
