Counselling and Psychotherapy (L-CaP)
I am a qualified therapist with clinics Angel Islington, High Holborn, West End, Oxford Street & Marylebone W1U. I am committed to providing counselling, psychotherapy and talking therapy in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment. I work with individuals and couples using an open-ended approach or for an agreed period to enable you to enhance your lives and live them more fully.
“Being entirely honest with oneself is a good exercise.”
– Sigmund Freud
I understand that seeking out therapy might be a difficult decision for some, but firmly believe that when an individual makes that step, it is because they are ready for change and growth. Using my training and knowledge, I will work with you towards a better awareness of yourself and yourself in relation to those around you.
Nothing you say will shock me and everything you say is always confidential.
Together we will recognise and explore patterns in yourself and others, what your triggers are and where those patterns may have originated. I do not believe in immediate fixes, rather that most issues are relational problems.
It's about the relationship we have with a problem that causes us pain; how you react to a topic, person or life event that causes upset in your personal and/or professional life.
”The fact that grief takes so long to resolve is not a sign of inadequacy, but betokens depth of soul.”
– Donald Winnicott

The process is something like this:
- we have an initial 15 odd min telephone call
- you tell me a little bit about what is going on for you and why you have reached out for therapy
- I tell you a bit about what I can offer you as a therapist
- if by the end of the telephone consultation we are both happy to go ahead we move to looking at both our diaries to agree a weekly day/time-slot for each week for in person at Holborn, High Holborn/Chancery Lane, Harley Street or Islington, online or hybrid sessions
- I offer a once weekly model - which can be short term therapy e.g. 3 to 5 months or long term therapy which is 6 months to open ended.
If you feel you need to speak to somebody, you are probably ready for therapy. Send an email through this website or call/text the number provided, and I’ll get back to you ASAP.
