Counselling Central London: Relationship, Anxiety, Depression and EFT Counsellor

London Bridge SE1/Bank EC3 Sessions on Zoom available

I am a Psychosynthesis and EFT Counsellor based in Bank EC3 and London Bridge SE1 Face to Face or online with Zoom

I work with a combination of Psychosynthesis counselling and energy techniques. I work this way because I have found it to be very effective in working with anxiety and depression and many other issues. Sometimes, we can gain a lot of relief by just talking, but not always. Talking can bring a lot of pain into our awareness and then may take a while to leave. EFT/Matrix can alleviate these painful and uncomfortable feelings. This is why I use counselling and EFT/Matrix Reimprinting in sessions.



Depression is caused by many things. We know something is wrong, but it all feels hidden in the fog. We don’t know what to do for ourselves. We don’t know where to go for help. GPs will prescribe medication that will help us to buffer the uncomfortable feelings but do not actually help to get to the root cause. Anyone can be affected by depression at any time of their life.

I work with people who mostly came from families affected by alcohol or some other mind-altering substance or other addictions or compulsive behaviour. The effect on children living in this environment is a feeling of not existing of being invisible. Children cannot process this, and the abandonment and rejection have to be buried and buried very deeply. While we have all kinds of survival strategies that get us through out childhood as adults being uncommunicative, defensive, reacting instead of responding can make relationships at work with friends and family very difficult. I work with Psychosynthesis and EFT to help give tools to my clients so that they are more easily able to navigate through their daily lives.

How does depression affect your relationship with your partner? Are you able to express the deep distress you are experiencing or is it too shameful? Does the fear of being rejected or abandoned stop you from speaking about how you are feeling? Are you distracting yourself by self-medicating with alcohol or drugs, tv, sex, self-harm? Depression can be isolating by putting up a false front and hiding from others and while this façade is painful it does enable you to get through the day.

Using Psychosynthesis techniques and EFT we can begin to understand what is causing you to feel this way and to dissipate this energy. By giving time and attention to your innermost feelings your energy will feel lighter and you will have gained a deeper understanding of yourself.

I have worked with many people who feel riddled with anxiety about everything and anything. Where does this anxiety originate? What is the purpose of feeling anxiety and fear? Is your anxiety about getting things wrong? Do you fear someone shouting at you or putting you down? Sometimes our anxiety is way to protect ourselves from the shock of getting it wrong or something bad happening. Anxiety means we are on high alert to anticipate all that can go wrong. There are ways to work with this and to manage anxiety so that it does not get in the way of relationships and your life.

We can explore the roots of your anxiety to uncover those parts that believe they must protect you from something that happened in your past. Psychosynthesis techniques and EFT are very effective tools that help to process uncomfortable and painful memories.

In the last 20 years much, scientific evidence has been put forward as to the effectiveness of energy psychology – under this umbrella is EFT, TAT and Thought Field Therapy. The techniques used along with a trained counsellor or therapist is more effective than talking alone. Imagine talking about something uncomfortable sometimes it’s a relief just to speak your feelings out loud as you can feel the energy dissipating and being released. Sometimes a lot emotional energy surfaces and suddenly you feel ‘in it’ and stuck and it is painful, frightening and very uncomfortable. If the feelings that come up are feelings, you have been trying for a long time to get in touch with it is useful to sit with them for a while but that is always the client’s decision. It is the other times when EFT is most useful. By tapping on acupuncture points and releasing the uncomfortable energy you will experience an easing and release of this energy. This also has the result of thinking becoming clearer and less foggy.

We can also work with Matrix Reimprinting for more painful and traumatic memories. This can have a huge effect on confidence and self-esteem.

Talking to someone and connecting with another person you feel safe enough to show your vulnerability can be very healing to a hurt soul. Sometimes life can be so busy and people around you are wrapped up in their own issues and pressures that it feels no one has time for you. It may also seem that the issues you carry are too heavy to share with someone. Seeing a counsellor who is empathic and has no agenda can be very useful in trying to find answers to issues you are struggling with.

Everything is energy and that's all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is NOT philosophy. This is physics.
