“The greatest discovery of any generation is that human beings can alter their lives by altering their attitudes of mind”
Life has changed suddenly for everyone, lots are struggling in their homes, relationships with partners, kids, family. You may have lost someone and be grieving in isolation, or just feeling lost without the structure of your life. This is a deeply provocative time, it prompts reassessment, and you may feel overwhelmed or even excited and need to harness that energy to create a better life. Identity feels so very fundamental at points like this, gaining a sense of who you are, what you want from my life, how you get it. Therapy really is about trying to make some sense, gain clarity and feel anchored. This work is a privilege because I get to see evolution, it often doesn't come easily, but it's genuinely uplifting when understanding and awareness emerges and then behaviour is able to change to create new outcomes.
One thing that is unchanged is that good therapy can be like a form of human alchemy. At the heart of the work is a relationship, so finding someone you trust is really important.
This supportive relationship can offer the safety and space each week to share and think about what's on your mind. In this way it's possible to create an awareness about behaviour, emotions, leading to an understanding of issues and outcomes. From this place there is the chance for evolution and lasting change.
At the moment my work is on the phone and online but normally I work in really lovely Therapy Rooms in Central London W1 near Charlotte Street, and Hampstead NW3, I offer a relaxed, confidential space for you to explore what is troubling you. Alternatively I offer Walking Therapy on Hampstead Heath, Regents Park and Primrose Hill. This has always been part of my practice because for some there is something in our wellbeing to be gained just from being outside.
