PSYCHOLOGICAL THERAPIES LONDON
C B T EMDR CHANGE
Psychological Therapies London (PTL) welcomed its first clients to embark on their therapeutic journeys in a small office space in Central London in early 2017 and since then it has grown and developed into a full-time psychotherapy practice on The Isle of Dogs. The new therapy studio is based in a dynamic creative hub and reflects PTL’s core values of creativity, authenticity and connection, and provides an excellent space for reflection and compassionate change.
With a realistic understanding of modern-life and the pressures that it brings, I offer a creative, compassionate and pro-active approach to therapy which values openness, self-reflection and the desire to change. Helping clients to understand their difficulties, what brought them to where they are now be it in life or emotionally and helping them to overcome the complex flux of thoughts, emotions and behaviour.
LIFE IS HARD. If logical thinking could solve the confusion and distress that comes with it then I certainly wouldn’t be typing this now and you wouldn't be reading it- emotions can sometimes inexplicably take over and leave us feeling at a loss as to what to do or how to help ourselves.
Helping clients to understand and overcome how trauma and pain from the past can play out in the present is an extremely rewarding and privileged position to be in and something I have always found deeply fulfilling.
Therapy is not a magic wand, but it certainly has light-bulb moments and can bring about long-lasting meaningful change to help people live more fulfilled and joyful lives.
My expertise in working with people to help them to reach their goals and live more fulfilling and meaningful lives stems from a desire to help people who, for whatever reason, have found that their life has not turned out how they had hoped or is not working for them right now. As a BABCP accredited Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist and EMDR practitioner, with over 12 years’ experience of extensive training and working within the NHS, I provide evidence-based psychotherapy which emphasises the use of theoretical and practical therapy approaches which have a solid research-base behind them. I draw upon cutting-edge techniques which are proven to get results and are recommended by the National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE).
As an accredited psychotherapist specializing in CBT and EMDR, I am able to work with a wide range of difficulties, diagnoses and psychological distress. CBT and EMDR are theoretically and therapeutically quite different approaches and work quite differently in the therapy room, but in my therapy practice have proved to be extremely good bedfellows; combining logic, strategy and planning with deep emotional and belief shift. Being skilled at integrating the two approaches also allows for flexibility throughout the therapy journey and creates responsive psychotherapeutic experiences which can be truly transformational.
More recently, I have completed the prestigious London Diploma in Psychosexual and Relationship Therapy and am continuing to integrate this into my psychotherapy practice where appropriate. I am currently completing my post-training qualification hours in private practice and at a busy sexual health clinic in East London, through which I am able to draw upon the expertise of world-class psychosexual psychotherapists and researchers.
I invite my clients to become curious about themselves and how they interpret and respond to others and the world around them; cultivating a stance of self-acceptance and a commitment to overcoming psychological distress and unhelpful behaviour.
