I am a qualified psychodynamic counsellor and psychotherapist who works one to one with adults and young people. Starting to talk about your life with someone can be challenging; my aim is to provide a safe and supportive place for you to explore what is troubling you, so that we can work together to inspire change and improve mental and physical well-being.

In addition to working in private practice, I work as a student counsellor at both The Guildhall School of Music and Drama and Central School of Speech and Drama. I have experience working with a wide range of emotional and behavioural issues; including stress, anxiety, depression, family relationship issues, eating disorders, self-harm, addictions, trauma and bereavements.

I am a trained and registered BACP counsellor with a Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology, Counselling and Psychotherapy. I’ve worked in the NHS and the Employability sector for the last couple of years and was able to achieve great results and positive outcomes with my clients, as well as in my private practice.

I have been working with a wide range of clients, from children and teenagers to adults and families, each one of them struggling in different areas such as depression, anxiety, bereavement, relational issues, personality disorders etc.

I believe in creating a safe and confidential environment for people to discover what is troubling them and find the most suitable way to deal with their issues, by helping them focus on what they can do rather than what they can’t do.

I am a BACP member and a qualified Child and Adolescent psychodynamic counsellor from Birkbeck, University of London, and have worked in schools in many areas of London with young people of diverse backgrounds. Trust and confidentiality are central to my practice- to create a space where the client can explore and reflect on their overwhelming emotions. I use art materials and play with younger clients to express their feelings. A young client recently said, “It is like you have given me a piggy bank where I can put my thoughts.”

I am experienced in dealing with struggles around bullying, abuse, eating disorders, low self-esteem, social isolation, identity issues, anxiety and depression.

Currently I am working with a specialist child grief charity and in a Camden youth counselling service. I have taught parenting extensively in primary schools and I recognise the need to think around the stresses of family life, for both parent and child, and can provide evidence based suggestions to help manage these difficulties.

Life can change in an instance and it did for me. I discovered therapy later in life, after a professional disaster. I was a 45 year old father and husband, I owned a restaurant in West London and I was making a good living. Then, I lost it all, everything, the restaurant, my house and then because of the stress my marriage.

Overwhelmed, I went to see a therapist and I was relieved that he too had lived and experienced life’s struggles and could understand how difficult it can be when life runs aground- suddenly . He like me was a self-made man and he inspired me to become a therapist. I hope that I can offer this bigger perspective as a therapist now.

I am a fully qualified, Therapist (BA Hons) . Alongside my Private Practice, I am employed by the charity Relate as a relationship counsellor.

Estelle Longcroft

I am a Psychodynamic Counsellor and have been practising since 2006, providing short and long term counselling to adults, adolescents and children. I have an advanced Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling, and a Post Graduate Certificate in Communicating with Children.

I have worked in many different schools across London and an international school in Belgium. These schools have been a mixture of Infants, Junior, Secondary, College, and a Special Needs School. I have counselled children as young as four years old up to eighteen. As well as private counselling work with children and young people. I have also worked for the NHS and in children’s care homes.

Children come to me with problems such as anxiety (including exam or performance anxiety), depression, low self-esteem, coping with disabilities or illnesses, bereavement, trauma, bullying and challenging behavioural issues.

I have an integrative approach to my work that is underpinned with Attachment Theory. Building a secure attachment with a client enables them to feel safe enough to freely express their thoughts and feelings. Depending on my clients’ needs I incorporate other theories such as Mindfulness, Solution-Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) as well as taking a psycho-educational approach.

Naomi Selwyn

As a Humanistic Integrative Counsellor, my focus is to place the emphasis on the therapeutic relationship as the primary agent for change. I aim to be empathic, respectful and non-judgmental and through this stance, I hope to make clients feel safe, supported and able to explore their issues openly.
Many clients experience difficulties in the present that have roots in their past. Together we can discover repeating patterns that are doing more to harm the client than help them. These realisations can be explored, enabling positive change. I combine different therapeutic techniques and approaches according to the client’s needs and offer long and short-term therapy.
I have worked with adults and young people experiencing a variety of conditions including depression, relationship problems, eating disorders, grief, self-harm, bullying, low mood and loneliness.
I have worked at various places such as the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, Mind and Hampstead Counselling Service and am now in private practice.

Associate Therapists. Preeti Marwaha

Preeti Marwaha

I am a BACP registered Psychodynamic counsellor working with individuals, couples, and families to help explore patterns of relating which maybe causing anxiety or distress. I endeavour to provide a safe space for us to think about these patterns to facilitate change.
It is human nature to want to protect ourselves from uncomfortable and painful feelings. However often, the more we avoid or shut these feelings down; the more they tend to persist. Gently approaching these feelings and thinking about them provides an opportunity to process them. Couples may feel unheard or unable to communicate effectively with their partners resulting in feelings of loneliness, disappointment, and frustration. This often manifests as an escalation in arguments or distancing oneself from relationships, both of which are unhelpful.
Through our work together we will explore the roots of your difficulties enabling you to respond with greater awareness to your life circumstances and relationships.
Alongside private practise, I also work at Highgate Counselling Centre and over the years have supported couples struggling with beak down in communication, escalation in arguments, trust issues, infidelity and managing change.

Katie Orr

I am a qualified Integrative counsellor and a registered member of the BACP providing both brief focused short term or long term, open-ended counselling.

In my Integrative counselling I creatively incorporate different therapeutic theories including relational, psychodynamic, humanistic and cognitive behavioural approaches, as well as mindfulness practices.

I’ll provide an authentic relationship where you can develop greater self-awareness and a way forward to a more fulfilling way of living. At times looking at past will be helpful, as can looking at what’s going for you right now and we can find our way through this together. I will work collaboratively with you to explore what isn’t working in your life right now and what you’d like to be different or leaves you feeling stuck. By doing this, you will be able to explore different perspectives to gain some new insights, interrupting patterns of thinking and behaviour that are no longer helpful.

My counselling experience in recent years includes working in community and volunteer led settings, universities, young people’s services and in Employee Assistance Programmes.

Kemi Omijeh

I am a BACP registered Child and Adolescent Therapist with 10+ years experience to date. I work exclusively with children, young people and their families. I have experience working with a diverse range of difficulties, particularly school based difficulties and adjusting to significant changes in the family.

My approach is creative; child focused and at the child’s pace. Therapy can be a daunting prospect, particularly for children and young people; rest assured that I am able to work in a gentle and encouraging way that soon puts the young person at ease. I am versatile in my therapeutic work and have a range of ways of working as I adapt my work to suit the child’s personality and needs. Mindfulness, CBT, art therapy and talking therapy are some of the many techniques I use.

I believe in the importance of nurturing good mental health in children and helping them to overcome any barriers to their emotional well-being in order for them live a happy confident childhood and to become secure, successful and emotionally balanced adults. I work closely with the families of the children I see in a non judgmental way, helping them gain a deeper understanding of their child’s needs.

Associate Therapists. Noemi Lercara

Noemi Lercara

I am a BACP registered therapist, my aim as a therapist is to offer a warm, deeply understanding and welcoming place where my clients can explore their own experiences and make sense of themselves in the way that feels right to them. I believe that in offering a supportive and non-judgmental environment allows people to feel free to move in whatever directions they wish, feel accepted for who they are, gain a greater understanding of their internal processes, and live happier and more fulfilling lives.

The counselling relationship I create with my clients is based on trust, confidentiality and acceptance. I strongly welcome creativity and expressivity during the therapy sessions as at times some of our feelings are not easily accessible, or simply we are not aware of them.
What brought me to become a counsellor is my deep trust in human nature, a sense of trust towards our strength to adapt, survive and reach the best we can. I firmly believe in the potential that each one of us holds within himself, with a purpose as a therapist to support people in finding it and live a truly satisfying life accordingly to their real selves.

I hold a Bachelor in Person-Centred counselling, a specialist training in bereavement loss and trauma and a I am currently working at post-graduate diploma level in Adolescent and School counselling.

I have experience in working with difficulties such as: bereavement, trauma, loss, low self-esteem, depression, anxiety, panic attacks, addictions, eating disorders, illnesses and end of life, divorce, post natal depression, abortion, identity issues, sexual and cultural identity, sexual abuse and violence, childhood trauma and suicide ideations.

I am completely bilingual and I work in both ENGLISH and ITALIAN.
