Psychotherapist and Counsellor - Ealing, West London
I am an Integrative Psychotherapist located in London and Wellington, Somerset and a member of the UKCP (United Kingdom of Council of Psychotherapy) a professional counselling and psychotherapy body. I have been working in the field of psychotherapy and short term counselling for over sixteen years and in the process I have a wide range of experience of working with problems affecting men and women.
I aim to help you identify, clarify and examine the problems that are troubling you in a safe, non-judgmental and confidential space. This could be a specific issue worrying you, for example, adjusting to the loss of someone important in your life or needing support with managing depression or anxiety.
In a psychotherapy session you may be encouraged to explore your feelings, beliefs and understanding of a long-term problem that has affected your life in a negative way. You will also be given the opportunity, space and time to explore and discuss life changes that have happened or that you wish to make. I work on the premise that all individuals are unique and session for clients will differ to meet the wide range of issues that are brought by them.
I am experienced working with body orientated psychotherapy, dream analysis, Mindfulness and constellation work, these techniques provide scope for you to explore issues creatively with the aim to find solutions and help in looking at things in your life from a different perspective.
It is normal for a Psychotherapy or Counselling session to be held at the same time and day each week last for 50 minutes.
If you decide to make an appointment you will be invited to an initial consultation to discuss and possibly identify the problems you are facing. You will also be given the opportunity to meet me and decide if psychotherapy or counselling is right for you before committing to sessions.
My practice offers the option of long-term psychotherapy and short term counselling (12 sessions). I am based in West London and Wellington, Somerset. I am easy reach on the motorway from Bristol, Taunton, Honiton and Exeter.
If you are reading this you could be seeking a psychotherapist or counsellor for a wide range of problems. You could be looking to improve the quality of your relationships with people in your life, you may need support in tackling addiction, grief or an immediate crisis, or you may need support in dealing with stress, anxiety or managing trauma. In some cases it is not one particular problem that brings you to visit a psychotherapist; you could simply be looking for ways to get out of a rut or wish to develop your potential.
My core training has been in Body Psychotherpy, I integrate this model of psychotherapy in sessions, consequently I offer a holistic approach in my practice that appreciates the impact stress and problems have on the mind, body and soul.
Body Psychotherapy is a branch of Psychotherapy that works on the premise that there is no separation between the body and mind in relation to managing stress. This model of therapy aims to bring a dual awareness of the feelings and emotions that arise when difficult themes or issues surface in life. This process, similar to other branches of psychotherapy and counselling, allows you to gain an insight and understand that what happens in the therapeutic encounter can mirror the relationship that you experience with your environment and the people around you.
Being able to be aware of shift in emotions and feelings in your body as you reflect on problems or difficult thoughts can help you manage negative thoughts. I provide clients tools in the form of breath work, mindfulness and basic body work to tackle problems and regulate overwhelming feelings.
My private practice is based in Ealing Broadway, West London.
Ealing Broadway is close to most train and bus routes to West, South West and Central London, including Acton, Brentford, Hanwell, Chiswick, Kew and Richmond.
