It may feel difficult to make that first step to contact a psychotherapist. Something may have emerged now that feels troubling or you may have been battling with anxiety,depression and difficult feelings, thoughts and patterns of behaviour for some time...
Perhaps this is your first encounter with a therapist...or your GP may have referred you to a psychological therapies service. You may have been placed on a waiting list and are still waiting... Perhaps you have been given a brief NHS intervention but feel you need more time and space to explore...
Whatever your circumstances, in your search for a private therapist, you have probably discovered a confusing array of practitioners. In deciding who to contact, you need to be confident the therapist has undergone an intensive and robust training and will adopt an empathic and non-judgemental stance.
I can assure you of a highly rigorous psychotherapy training (see Qualifications Page).
I have worked with a wide range of issues, most notably, depression, anxiety, sexual and emotional abuse, family relationships, bereavement and loss, trauma, self-esteem and life-stage transitions, sexual orientation issues, peri- and post-natal depression and parenting issues.
I AM AN ANNA FREUD CENTRE-TRAINED PARENT-INFANT PSYCHOTHERAPIST, WORKING WITH MOTHERS AND BABIES WHO ARE EXPERIENCING EMOTIONAL DIFFICULTIES IN THE PERI-AND POST-NATAL PERIOD.
I also facilitate parent-infant observation seminars on a collaborative Masters Programme between UCL and the Anna Freud Centre.
Please email me in the first instance to arrange an initial consultation for psychotherapy in Mill Hill:
"...the evidence indicates that the benefits of psychodynamic treatment are lasting and not just transitory and appear to extend well beyond symptom remission. For many people, psychodynamic therapy may foster inner resources and capacities that allow richer, freer, and more fulfilling lives."
