psychoanalytic psychotherapy in archway, finsbury park and london bridge
I have been working with individuals and groups for the last twenty years. I offer counselling, psychotherapy and supervision in Archway, Finsbury Park and London Bridge.
I would describe my orientation as psychoanalytic from within a contemplative perspective. By this I mean that I subscribe to the idea of an unconscious and believe that events and attitudes from early life can impact on our lives today. I understand that an awareness of these currents helps to increase the choices available to us. Yet I also know, as a long-time meditator, that paying attention in a non-judgemental fashion enables previously unbearable experiences to be borne and new possibilities discovered. I provide a safe space in which these experiences can be explored.
I have also worked for many years in NHS hospitals and therefore understand the challenges of working in large organisations.
I work with many issues including:
- autistic spectrum
- bipolar disorders
- obsession and obsessive compulsive disorder
- personality disorder
- psychosis and psychotic episodes
- relationship issues
- searching for a sense of meaning
- spiritual crises
- struggling with conflict and indecision
My practice is within easy reach of Archway, Finsbury Park and London Bridge transport hubs.
