Talking to an experienced counsellor can be a great relief. Being listened to with warmth and understanding is often healing. You may gain new insights, fresh ways of moving forward and confidence in your own strengths. Counselling, Supervision and Focusing are in North West London, covering Stanmore, Harrow, Edgware, Pinner & Bushy. My approach is Person-centred .
I work with individuals, couples and families including adults, teens and children.
The misery and loneliness of depression; Stress, anxiety, panic and fear; Shock and grief following a bereavement; The ending of a relationship; Anger and rage which might affect your bonds with family, friends and colleagues. Some people find that they are easily overcome by their emotions and want to work with this aspect of themselves.
Tensions within your family or as part of a couple.
Perhaps your life is different now due to illness, divorce, children leaving home, or retirement and you want to consider the changes, and look towards the future hopefully.
You might have experienced a traumatic event, or lived with the distress of ongoing trauma. The children of survivors can also be affected by their parents' past, including holocaust survivors.
You may be struggling with an addiction, having difficulties with eating, or affected emotionally by conditions such as dyslexia and dyspraxia.
If you have suffered abuse and bullying you can talk about your experiences and their impact, we can address the emotional effects. There is support for people who self harm or feel suicidal.
Therapy is also for self-development. You can explore your personality and your interactions with others, considering your growth socially, psychologically and spiritually.
You may wish to look at how you identify yourself. This can include your beliefs, values, ethnicity, gender and sexuality.
Counselling is a space for whatever matters to you. It is an opportunity to learn more about yourself as well as how you are and how you want to be in relationships with other people. Whilst we are together you might choose to step into painful and fearful areas of your life. If so I will be beside you and we will walk at your pace.

Counselling in Harrow covers Bushy, Stanmore, and Pinner, with daytime and evening appointments. More information about counselling.
During supervision counsellors explore their work and attend to their personal and professional development. Supervision is a professional requirement that helps you to meet the needs of your clients and to take good care of yourself. Together we reflect upon areas that are relevant to your practice. I view supervision as a relationship that is supportive and at the same time encourages you to challenge yourself.
Supervision is for trainee and experienced counsellors and for people in caring professions such as medical and teaching staff. I am an approved supervisor for Metanoia and a BACP Senior Accredited Supervisor and counsellor in Stanmore HA7. More information about supervision including BACP recommendations and requirements..
Perhaps you would like to know yourself at a deeper level, to understand what is going on inside, and to work with any areas that are causing stress and pain. You may discover fresh perspectives that can help if you are feeling emotionally overwhelmed, trying to make a decision, struggling with intrusive thoughts or feeling that something inside is blocking you from taking an action such as changing jobs or starting a new relationship. Focusing recognizes that our bodies know and can tell us what we need for physical and emotional health.

Focusing Workshops in North West London
For people interested in personal development
The Certificate is designed with the intention of gently reinforcing and furthering your development as Focuser and Companion, it encourages self-awareness and self-acceptance. You do not need to have had any experience to start. Learning in a group setting can be fun whilst also enhancing personal growth. Focusing workshops are in North West London. I am a Certified Trainer with the Focusing Institute and a recognized teacher with The British Focusing Association.
For counsellors and therapists
Focusing is a special way of listening to your inner self allowing for deeper insights and understandings. You can be more in touch with what you are experiencing whilst you are with clients adding to the quality of your work. There are also opportunities to consider bringing Focusing to your own practice and how this might be implemented. Having learnt the basics you might like to Focus during supervision. This can enhance reflections and bring fresh understandings.
'Perhaps you can recall a time with a client who shifted uncomfortably in their chair when speaking of something moving or difficult and you reflexively shifted too, having a gut-sense of their situation coming alive in you' K.C Krycka
I am passionate about Focusing, I find it so helpful and I enjoy belonging to the world wide community.
'You have created a warm & safe environment which facilitated & provided a wonderful opportunity for growth' (A participant)
