Integrative Psychotherapy & Counselling

Welcome

Thank you for taking the first step and visiting my site.  Feel free to explore and get in touch to book a consultation or if you have any questions. 

 

At this point, you may know what you wish to explore, better understand and heal.   However, being uncertain of your specific therapy need is not uncommon.  Still, you feel something does not feel right, and it is challenging your day-to-day wellbeing.  

 

In each case, the open-ended weekly therapy I offer provides a safe, confidential and non-judgmental space to discover insights into yourself and process parts of you which are overly challenging and sometimes feel too difficult to heal alone. Examples of issues we can approach are:

  • Anxiety

  • Depression / low-mood

  • Family or relationship issues

  • Work stress

  • Socio-cultural

  • Trauma

  • Environmental stress

Alternatively, you can send me an email by clicking the 'contact me' button below, and I will endeavour to get back to you within 24 hours.  Following the consultation, ongoing 50-minute sessions are £65 at either Finsbury Park, Angel or Brick Lane and occurring weekly at the same time of day.

What happens first?
 

Your therapy begins when you book an initial 15 to 20 minute online  consultation to discuss what you need, the options you have, outline the therapy process and answer any  other questions.  Following the initial consultation there is no obligation to have a first session or you might want some time to consider what you wish to do.

What happens next? 

If you wish to begin following the consultation, we can have a weekly fifty-minute session for a fixed period or on an open-ended basis.  If working on an open-ended basis you have the option to go on for as long or short as you need. 

What if I am uncertain about what I want from therapy? 

On occasion, you may not be entirely sure of your specific psychotherapy needs.  However, you feel something does not feel right or you only broadly know what the issue is, or there are many issues.

 

Any of these situations are not uncommon.  In this case, I usually suggest that we use the initial discussion and the first few sessions to let me know a bit about yourself, your background, and what is presently going on in your life that impacts your wellbeing.

Covid considerations.


Currently, in-person sessions are now back.  If you were positive with Covid and are well enough to attend a session, we can have a Zoom session.

What integrative psychotherapy approach can you expect?

Rest assured you do not need to have an in-depth knowledge of psychotherapy or counselling in order to benefit. 

 

Overall, I draw upon principles from psychodynamic, humanistic and existential practices.  In doing so, I tailor these three core approaches to suit your therapy need. 

 

Furthermore, the core elements integrate several other psychotherapy principles, such as Gestalt, internal family systems (IFS) and Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), a researched approach involving self-applied bilateral stimulation on specific body acupressure points. EFT is commonly used in working with trauma or negative opinions and beliefs about oneself.
