UKCP Registered Psychotherapist

About me

Hello, I'm Rob. I provide a warm-hearted, engaging, non-judgemental space in which to think deeply, reflect, get professional input and begin to make change. The process of telling your story and being deeply understood can itself be healing and can lead to change. Sometimes a deeper understanding of psychological factors is required and I can provide this too.

My specialisation is in relationship difficulties and 'stuckness'. I've chosen these two as they are common areas for unhappiness.

Relationships are a fundamental part of our lives. We affect one another, family, friends and partners, in a complex web of interactions. Depending on the nature of our contact, relationships can have us feeling secure and connected or unsupported and lonely. Also fundamental is our relationship with ourself- the person with whom we spend so very much time! What we think and feel about ourself affects our self-esteem, confidence, behaviour, and of course our interactions with others. If you are experiencing relationship difficulties, or if you desire new relationship, you may find that some therapy sessions will help.

Some form of being stuck is another common source of unhappiness. We may desire an important change; a new job, to quit smoking, go out more, to get rid of anxiety, depression etc. If we are unable to make that happen we are unhappily frustrated. Sometimes the necessary support or resources are not available to us, sometimes we set about getting what we want in an unproductive way, and sometimes there is a strong part of ourselves that may not want this change at all. Therapy can help by supporting, talking through new options, and sometimes by resolving the internal conflict you may be experiencing.

My clients are often professional Londoners who lead good-enough lives but have things about themselves they'd like to tweak for the better. Don't worry if your needs don't match my specialism, I'm an experienced therapist so it's likely I'll be able to help. Please get in touch if you'd like to ask any questions or book a session.
