Away 18th August-2nd September. Restart Monday 3rd September COUNSELLING & PSYCHOTHERAPY IN FOREST GATE BY STRATFORD, EAST LONDON
Those who know ghosts tell us that they long to be released from their ghost life and led to rest as ancestors. As ancestors they live forth in the present generation, while as ghosts they are compelled to haunt the present generation with their shadow life.
I am a fully trained and much experienced psychodynamic counsellor and psychoanalytic psychotherapist. I work with adults one on one and also with couples. The range of my clients mirrors the range of people in London. I am able to attune to that range.
Among issues with which I work are abuse, addiction, anxiety, depression, disability, mental health and ill-health, relationships, trauma, unease of culture, and problems at work. The spectrum is wider. One theme is made of moments that have shaped clients. These have also been sources of distress.
Within the work, a number of prospects arise. There is scope for new ways of noting, looking at, and being with hurtful passages of time. There are also windows for worthwhile and fuller glances at past events that still cause pain, and also for degrees of apt movement.
It is a matter of small steps. It relates to timing. It is a question too of how ready each client is to take in and manage strands of something new and other than prior ways of seeing. In short, as and when the time is right. You can click on my How It Helps page for more detail.
As a counsellor and psychotherapist, my aim is to receive, grasp and follow what you need. I am also mindful of your background and footing in life. So I practise by way of a sliding scale for fees. This relates to the details of your present life, work or study. You can discuss these with me.
I offer face to face, confidential counselling and psychotherapy. I will not push you toward any express track or tell you how you should solve your problems. Instead, as counsellor and client we will each and also jointly think about the issues that affect you, and explore your feelings, thoughts and gut responses.
You can get to my Forest Gate counselling and psychotherapy site from stations at Stratford, Forest Gate and Wanstead Park, in East London. A great number of buses also come to the area. I can send you details.
Lastly, I cannot know why you are reading this. Yet it is possible you are in a hard place or find your life to be at a painful standstill. Perhaps one close to you is at such a point. If this is the case, I am sorry; and would suggest you make contact by email or phone call, as detailed on this page. I will reply as soon as I can.
