INDIVIDUAL THERAPY

Confidential and Professional Individual
Therapy Canary Wharf

My clients come from a range of different backgrounds and are also diverse in culture, ethnicity and sexuality. They all bring an array of life’s difficulties in love, at work and at home as well as internal struggles such as anxiety, depression and lack of self-esteem. Some clients want to concentrate on current problems they are struggling to resolve on their own; and others have realised that the same old problems repeat and cycle in very familiar and destructive patterns. Some clients therefore want therapy for just a few sessions to help them through a difficult time; while others want to work longer term to tackle more deep-seated and long-standing difficulties.

Difficulties and conditions I help people with

 

I work generally with adults facing common human difficulties. We all go through rocky periods in our lives and therapy can help you smooth a way forward. Some examples of how therapy can help you move through difficulties include:

  • Understanding what might be causing problems and repetitive patterns.

  • Clarifying what direction you want to take in your life.

  • Exploring problems with intimate relationships or family members.

  • Exploring difficulties in relating to and accepting yourself

  • Managing emotions and thoughts more effectively


In particular, I have worked extensively with bereavement, domestic violence, trauma and adult survivors of childhood adversity. My doctoral thesis was on emotions in adult survivors of childhood abuse and I have worked in a hospice service for bereaved families and an agency for women in violent relationships. I am trained in EMDR (eye-movement desensitisation and reprocessing) a government-recommended treatment for trauma. I have also had specific training in working with couples. 

In addition, over the duration of my career I have helped clients work through issues including (although not exhaustive):

  • Abortion 

  • Abuse

  • Anger management

  • Anxiety (including generalised anxiety disorder (GAD), Panic, Phobias)

  • Bereavement (including complex, traumatic and delayed grief)

  • Bullying 

  • Cancer
