I am a qualified psychotherapy counsellor, offering therapy and counselling in North London. I practice as counsellor both at NHS, as well as run my own private therapy practice Psychotherapy and Counselling North London, covering predominantly Camden, Primrose Hill, Belsize Park, Hampstead, West Hampstead, St John’s Wood, Swiss Cottage and Maida Vale.
My private therapy work with clients takes the form of individual sessions. I, however, also run group therapy (one of which is Group Therapy North London), for those interested in this form of psychotherapy.
I offer psychotherapy and counselling both in person, as well as run therapy sessions over Skype.
In my therapy work, I will predominantly use transactional analysis psychotherapy, but will also use elements of CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy), gestalt, psychodrama and other modalities and schools.
If you are suffering from depression, anxiety or have trouble engaging in relationships; if you feel lonely and not understood; if your life lost purpose and you don’t know where to find it; if you’re a parent and don’t want to influence your children with bad habits; if you are struggling with addiction or compulsive behaviour; if you feel you can’t manage you anger or are unable to connect to people you love; if you are going through the loss of someone you loved and would like to ease the pain; if you are numbed of anxiety over your works and career or are overworking yourself to the point of burnout; if you feel awkward in social situations or experience panic attacks; if you feel internet and social media is ruling your life; if your life is impacted by mental health issues and you just want to do something about it—let’s do something about it together!
