I am a UKCP accredited psychotherapist and counsellor in Twickenham, London Borough of Richmond. I work face-to-face with people in my consulting room at Ash House in Twickenham which is easily accessible by public transports and in walking distance from Twickenham Green, Strawberry Hill Train Station and several bus stops. I also work online via Zoom and Skype.
I practice psychoanalytic psychotherapy, an orientation which attempts to bring unconscious processes into awareness. We explore past and current relationships (including the relationship to the therapist) and examine which internalised models and patterns from the past may be repeated in the present. Once we brought these models into awareness we can try to change them if they prove to be destructive.
In therapy with my clients, I strive to create a safe and warm atmosphere which encourages discussion and dialogue. I prefer to work long-term with my clients - from several months up to several years. This allows for enough time that trust and safety in the therapeutic relationship can develop and deeper rooted and painful experiences can be explored and analysed.
