Counselling and Psychotherapy in South West London- Wimbledon
“To find out what is truly individual in ourselves, profound reflection is needed; and suddenly we realize how uncommonly difficult the discovery of individuality is.” (C.G. Jung)
Psychotherapy or counselling can be helpful if you are feeling angry, helpless, stressed, confused and would like to change this. Counselling can be of help if you want to improve self-reflection and self-awareness, or perhaps deal with things that you feel are holding you back which you have not resolved. There is a significant amount of research that has found talking therapy to be helpful, enabling individuals to change their unhelpful ways of thinking, behaving and therefore feeling better able to cope with things in life. If you have never engaged in therapy or spoken to a counsellor you may be wondering what to do and what to expect from therapy. You may find some of the answers to your questions on the FAQ page.

The type of therapy I offer is Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and Attachment-Based Psychodynamic Therapy
I offer Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), which is a practical short-term therapy aimed at improving the way one feels by changing thinking patterns and behaviours. CBT is a structured type of therapy, where you will learn techniques to modify your thinking and behaviour to feel better and less distressed. Some reading and writing in between each session is required for this therapy, for example keeping diaries of thoughts, emotions and events. An abundance of research has shown CBT to be a very effective treatment especially for anxiety disorders, including: panic, social anxiety, OCD, health anxiety and specific phobias.
I also offer longer- term Attachment- Based Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, which explores how past relationships and experiences may influence the ways one relates in the present to one self and to others. This type of therapy is more explorative and lasts longer, as it usually requires more time to speak about these deeper issues. Attachment-based psychodynamic psychotherapy is generally aimed at exploring relationship difficulties, low self-esteem, depression and childhood trauma.
