You don't have to struggle alone.Talking to an experienced counsellor can be a great relief. Being heard with warmth and understanding is often healing. You may gain new insights, fresh ways of moving forward and confidence in your own strengths.
I am a counsellor in Stanmore with eighteen years experience. I see individuals, couples and families and I supervise trainee and experienced counsellors. As a Person-centered practitioner I hope to provide a healing, supportive and empowering relationship.
Focusing is a special way of listening inwards, it can increase self-awareness and self-acceptance, I teach Focusing in North West London and I offer guided Focusing sessions.

During supervision practitioners explore their work and attend to their personal and professional development. Supervision is a professional requirement that helps you to meet the needs of clients and supervisees and to also take good care of yourself. Together we reflect upon areas that are relevant to your practice, including any concerns and dilemmas that might occur.
Supervision is a supportive relationship, that encourages you to challenge yourself. We can also celebrate when things go well.

Focusing in North West London
You might have tried pushing difficult feelings and emotions away, hoping that this will help you to feel better. Instead you might find that your feelings become stronger and that you are distubed by thoughts going round and round in your mind. With Focusing you can be in relationship with your feelings and your thoughts in an accepting and empathic way that allows them to change naturally.
Focusing recognizes that our bodies know and can tell us what we need for physical and emotional health. It allows us to notice our body's messages, and to experience ourselves at a deeper level. Focusing offers a way of sensing inwards when making decisions and working with inner blocks that prevent you from taking an action. Focusing is particularly helpful when working with trauma.
