About Counselling and Psychotherapy in Gospel Oak.
Counselling and psychotherapy in Camden.
I offer private counselling and psychotherapy from the Gospel Oak / Hampstead area, convenient for Gospel Oak, Primrose Hill, Belsize Park, Hampstead, Kentish Town, Camden and North West London.
We all need space to simply talk-
Easier said than done, sometimes that can be hard to find. You may not know who you can trust, sometimes, there seems to be no one, or if there is, you might not want to burden him or her. Or you may be worried about how they react, or that their own problems might get in the way of you being heard properly.

I have learned to listen extremely carefully, focusing on some elements in particular that may normally get missed out in everyday conversations. When I reflect back to you, you will begin to hear yourself much more clearly and get more clarity. We work closely together and you begin to get more of a sense of what is going on in your life and what you might need.
Our difficulties can be portals to growth and change.
"Problems are not stop signs, they are guidelines." (Robert H. Schulle.)

Deciding you would like counselling, is possibly the hardest part.
Once you have made the decision, you are need no longer on your own. Together we will work in partnership to address your issues.

My integrative therapy approach is underpinned by core theories from the major schools of psychotherapy and current research:
I also draw on:
This is not a therapy itself but follows research into how we have attached so we can help to provide helpful therapeutic experiences.
