Counselling and Psychotherapy
There are many reasons why you might be considering counselling and psychotherapy. Perhaps you are going through something specific, such as family issues, bereavements, depression, or addiction. You might be experiencing low mood/self-esteem, or feel like something in your life is wrong but can’t identify what it is. In moments like these, it is important to talk to someone in a safe, friendly, non-judgemental, strictly confidential space in order to process these emotions.
How Can Counselling and Psychotherapy Help?
For many people, having a safe space to talk through their issues can be extremely helpful. Being able to speak freely, without fear of judgement, reduces the role difficult emotions play in your daily thinking.
We help you manage the present moment in a healthier way through a two-pronged approach: 1, providing CBT-based solutions to address current negative or difficult thought patterns and emotions, and 2, taking a deeper psychodynamic look at where these feelings originate from, to ensure they don’t continue to manifest in the future.
A Variety of Approaches
Take a look at our How We Work page to learn more about the different therapeutic styles provided by our team of professionals.
Many clients have found online counselling and psychotherapy to be extremely beneficial, as they can receive help from the comfort of their own home. This platform allows for greater flexibility and ensures you don’t miss sessions.
We will continue to offer counselling over Zoom as an alternative to face-to-face sessions. We understand that you may be busy with childcare and/or work commitments, so you are free to move between counselling on Zoom and in-person as often as you like.
If you are unable to leave your home for a variety of reasons, or have young children and struggle to find regular childcare, we can come to your home to provide individual and couples counselling sessions.
Please get in touch with us to find out more about setting up a home visit in Hampstead, Highgate or the wider North London area.
If you require an urgent appointment for individual, couples or family therapy, get in touch with me by email or text and provide some brief details, as well as your availability.
I will usually be able to arrange an appointment with one of our therapists within 24 hours, and sometimes even on the same day.
We offer Mindfulness and Wellbeing sessions for businesses and private groups, which have become increasingly popular over the pandemic and are run via either Zoom or Google Meet. Groups can be as small as four or as large as 40 people, depending on your needs. Parenting groups are also proving to be in high demand; these sessions are offered to support parents – either privately or in the workplace – who find themselves struggling with challenges they or their children are facing.
Counselling in the Workplace
As an employer, it is important to provide your workforce with the right support as they return to the office or continue to work from home. That is why we offer a form of confidential workplace counselling that is personalised to the specific needs of each individual employee, acting as a more specialised alternative to larger and more conventional EAP (Employee Assisted Programme) providers.
Visit our Workplace Counselling page to see a full outline of how we can deliver tailored counselling to your employees.
