         London Psychological Therapy

A choice of therapies for a wide range of psychological difficulties

I have been working in both the private and public sectors in and out of London since 2005. Currently, I work as a Specialist Counselling Psychologist in a Community Mental Health Team offering assessment and treatment on an individual and group basis to clients with long histories of psychological and psychiatric difficulties. I also supervise Counselling Psychologists in training and professionals from other disciplines, plan and deliver training packages to staff across the NHS Trust.

I have extensive experience of working with people having family and relationship difficulties, entrenched personality issues, depression and anxiety problems, self-esteem issues, trauma victims, drug & alcohol users, and gay and lesbian clients. I have also worked with hospital in-patients and out-patients with chronic or terminal illnesses, people with HIV and psychosexual difficulties, as well as primary school children.

Apart from English, I also offer sessions in Russian and Latvian.

Whilst I am passionate about therapy, I am also interested in meditation, philosophy, religion, spirituality, yoga, dance (5 Rhythms), travelling, languages, classical music, opera, ballet, modern art, cinema, theatre, swimming and cycling.
