Psychotherapist, counsellor in London W2 (near to W9 and NW8) and Berkhamsted Herts, (near to Hemel Hempstead, Tring, Chesham, Aylesbury and Watford).
If you are looking for a therapist then you probably want to find somebody who is appropriately qualified and experienced. You might well want to know that he or she is not only technically able, but also personally receptive, understanding and trustworthy. On top of this, more than likely you will want someone who can give you real insight into yourself, or perhaps to impart some great wisdom that will make a significant difference to your life.
In response to the above I can confirm that I am a qualified psychotherapist, on the UKCP Register, and have been seeing clients for psychotherapy since 1998. I can assure you of my commitment to be as receptive and understanding as possible. I adhere to a code of ethics that requires confidentiality to be maintained throughout the duration of therapy, which lays a foundation for trust to develop. Finally, in terms of wisdom, the process of being ‘in therapy’, and whatever occurs to you in that interaction or as a consequence of it, might itself generate or facilitate something that makes a real difference in terms of your learning and development. It is a privilege whenever I witness this happening for clients.
Regarding my qualifications, I am trained in both Existential and Transpersonal psychotherapy and counselling. Post registration, I was awarded a distinction for an MA in Transpersonal Psychotherapy for a dissertation I wrote about the therapeutic relationship.
During my earlier years as a therapist, I built up experience working for various voluntary organisations – such as Highbury Counselling, Counselling Initiatives and Signpost. It was then a natural step for me to start up a private practice, which has now been established for nearly twenty years, seeing clients from rooms in Little Venice, London W2 and also in Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire.
I have experience of working with many sorts of issues, including the following:
- Relationship problems
- Family problems and dynamics
- Alcohol and drugs
- Low self esteem
- Loss of meaning
