With many years of experience, I can help you find a greater level of well-being in your life, enabling you to become resilient in the face of stress and to flourish. I use the tools of classic CBT in counselling to facilitate people to manage their moods of depression and anxiety.This means that I use well-researched and well-known protocols for the treatment of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) , Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Phobias, Panic Disorder, Health Anxiety, Social Anxiety, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and low mood. I also treat people who suffer from Personality Disorder.
I wish you all the very, very best and thank you for saving my life a couple of years ago (possibly very literally) and for all the other help and strength you've given me. I couldn't have wished for a nicer, better or more skilled person to see me through.
Many people face inter-cultural issues in their relationships. I am widely experienced in dealing with these issues in relationship counselling. London is a diverse city and this is reflected in peoples relationships. I use Mindfulness Meditation and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) to help people move in the direction of their most deeply held values and to find greater fulfilment despite the obstacles they face in life. I encourage people to find the wellsprings of joy within themselves, and to learn to get into ‘flow’, which is described by the originator of the concept as a state of ecstasy). If appropriate and sought for, I will explore spiritual issues in depth with her clients. I particularly admire the life of Jesus and I incorporates spiritual tenets and practices from contemporary Buddhism, Hinduism and Islam in my practice as well. This unique approach to spirituality and psychotherapy encourages people to develop psychological flexibility in the face of change. If you are an atheist, agnostic or not inclined towards spirituality of any sort she will be sensitive to your beliefs and work within your particular framework.
