In Dalston, London
As we come into a healthier relationship to emotional pain and wounding from history, energy is freed up and the positive counterparts of what was repressed are made available to us. Counselling can result in a release of creativity, motivation, freedom and a feeling of increased well being.
I offer support to deal with a range of issues including: relationship difficulties, stress, and anxiety, trauma, addiction, sexuality, depression, bereavement, self-harm, abuse, low confidence, and self-esteem.
I have worked with clients from a variety of backgrounds, cultures and beliefs, and range of ages and sexualities.
Do I need counselling?
The reasons that some people seek out a counsellor are as varied and different
as people themselves.
I offer support to deal with a range of issues including, but not limited to – relationship difficulties, stress and anxiety, trauma, addiction, sexuality, depression, bereavement, self-harm, abuse,
and low self-confidence.
If you are ready to release yourself from patterns that no longer serve you and improve the relationships you have with other people and with yourself? Then I can help guide you on your journey to becoming more fully your true self.
Some of my clients come to me seeking help with problems which they describe as having a mystical or spiritual nature; some of them have difficulty even describing what they are experiencing. Unusual and unexplainable experiences can be beautiful and come with a sense of great peace but they can also be extremely scary and confusing. It is slowing being shown both by research and through the sharing of people who have come through this kind of experience that the attitude of the person and those around them can have a big influence on the outcome of what is, in fact, a process that has been reported by many people throughout human history and all cultures.
These experiences can occur ‘out-of-the-blue’ or be triggered by stressful or traumatic events in life such as bereavement, divorce, a severe accident or injury, losing your job or any other change in life circumstances. These events can bring about a period of psychological change in which we are called to think bigger and become something more than we were. Suddenly we are responsible for far more than we are used to or we begin to question life and what it all means.
Working with a therapist with experience and knowledge of this process can help to make meaning of anomalous experiences which reduces the anxiety and confusion that can occur. The person is then able to integrate the experience into their life which means it is no longer disturbing and distressing.
Have you ever asked yourself any of these questions?
Why do I feel so empty?
What’s wrong with me?
Am I depressed?
Why do I feel so disconnected from others?
Am I going crazy?
Am I having a mid-life crisis?
Do I have unresolved childhood issues?
If the answer to one or more of these is yes, then working with a counsellor may well help you achieve a better state of mind.
