My Work as a Psychotherapist and Counsellor
At some time during our lives, many of us face situations that are too difficult to manage or understand. Or we may feel an overwhelming sense of despair or anxiety, repeating the same old destructive patterns over and over again.
My experience has taught me that our wounds are often the openings to the best and most beautiful parts of us and that there is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside us.
Talking to an experienced psychotherapist can release you from being alone with painful, confusing thoughts and feelings, as together we begin to make sense of things, enabling you to decide what - and how - to change. Deeper insight into your relational patterns, as well as into your beliefs about yourself, the world and others will enable you to develop healthier, more satisfying relationships, increase your self-confidnece, change your self-defeating behavioural patterns and thrive.
Therapy can also reduce your sense of negativity, hopelessness and lack of assertiveness and improve your ability to function in interpersonal, social and work situations.
Some people find that a few sessions can help them address a specific problem, whilst others choose to work on a longer-term basis in order to focus on deeper issues.
I have extensive experience in dealing with a wide range of issues including generalised anxiety disorder, depression, panic disorder, bipolar disorder and manic depression. I work with clients from many different backgrounds and industries, including business, finance, media and entertainment. I offer a secure and confidential professional relationship. My quiet, comfortable consulting room is located just off Westbourne Grove, within a few minutes' walk from Notting Hill tube station.
Below are a few testimonials from past clients:
"I can't thank you enough Abi. Our time together has been so precious and has taught me so much. I feel like a completely different person". Charlotte P - West London.
"It took a lot of courage to make that initial call to you, but I'm so pleased I did. I've grown enormously as a person through our sessions and things now make so much more sense. I dread to think how I'd still be feeling and behaving if I'd never made that first call". James S - West London.
"Words fail me to enunciate how life-changing working with you has been and how more equipped I feel to handle things. I am very appreciative of your patience, insights and techniques. Deciding to pursue therapy with you has been one of the most intelligent decisions I've ever made" - Megan D - Kensington
"I can't believe how much more relaxed and together I feel as a result of our sessions. That constant anxiety and self-hatred has completely disappeared". Clare F - Central London.
"I used to feel so alone, anxious and numb - unable to really connect with people. I now have so much more self-confidence. My relationships are now much closer and more honest and satisfying. They give me energy, whereas before they used to drain me". James F - Central London.
"I'm determined that my new life starts here. I've learned so much about myself through our sessions. And my new awareness has given me the tools to approach life in a completely different way. Thank you so much". Chloe D - West London.
