Existential Counselling and Psychotherapy Hackney East London


Existential Phenomenological Psychotherapy is a relationship and a conversation.
As in everyday life, the quality of conversation relies on the quality of the relationship.
Happiness and sadness have a place in therapy.
I don't recognise laughter to be exclusively about happiness or tears exclusively about sadness. I ask in therapy what the tears or the laughter meant for the client rather than assume that I knew.

Relationship work with couples.
I like to see couples for two to four initial 50 minute sessions and then at least one individual session with each of the couple before returning to meeting together. The duration of the work will be jointly decided.
