My experience includes working within the NHS as well as a variety of counselling centres throughout London. I have worked with a wide range of emotional difficulties including; depression, anxiety, lack of confidence, family and relationship problems as well as experiences of loss and bereavement. My main areas of research have been the origins of depression and depression during adolescence.
I offer both short-term and long-term therapy. Short-term would normally come under the heading of counselling and would comprise of 12 consecutive sessions. This would usually mean focusing on a specific problem. In many cases, however, people come to therapy unable to identify the problem but knowing that underlying emotional patterns need to be addressed. In this case, psychotherapy offers a longer period of time so that insight can be gained into emotional issues that arise from the past. In all cases of short-term and long-term therapy, commitment and regular attendance of sessions is important for the therapeutic process.
