As we relinquish all our distractions, what we no longer need to hold on to - often something safe and familiar, our dependency on others for validation, recognition, approval, etc., we are able to temporarily drop our stress, fear, worries, anxiety, bear any suffering, embrace all our feelings. We can be more in touch with our sense of Self - separate to what's going on around us and may want to build, rediscover our sense of Self - be centred, grounded, settled in our Self, yet be freer - less constrained and more relaxed into ourself, open in our mind, body and heart, experiencing and expressing love, living meaningfully, have compassion for ourself and others. We may want to differentiate between our false pride, wounded self, ego self (the selves we created to get love, avoid pain), be in touch with a truer sense of who we are, being OK in our core self, very being and inherent nature. Paradoxically we become closer to who we are, and our core self, by disidentifying, being in touch with who we are not, ridding ourselves of any obstacles in the way, including our limiting beliefs, perceptions, allowing for uncertainty, the unknown, mystery.

Sometimes we can let our thoughts run away with us as if we have a monkey mind, be hijacked by them. Struggling to reconcile & prioritise things in our head, we may have competing interests or priorities, an ever expanding "to do" list. We can do anything, yet can't do everything.

Often two people are at different places in their life journey, and we may tend to look to our partner to resolve our own issues or problems. Relationship counselling and marriage therapy can support us in the difficulties we are facing, explore ways how our relationship, marriage can be improved, difficulties weathered, challenges overcome, letting go of old patterns, building upon, creating its potential.

Avoiding rejection, we would rather avoid asking what we want, stating our needs, even in our relationship. We may tirelessly try to agree with others for worrying about not being liked, fear of rejection, abandonment or of getting into any conflict. In the company of others we can feel like an outsider, on our own, alone, maybe alarmed at times, with a sense of panic, as if we need someone to help us out.

Where we are from - our home, forms part of our self-identity & adjusting to the transition of living in London can bring us right up against personal identity issues - how & where we fit in. Unsettled, it can be as if we are a tourist in our native country (or county), yet feel a foreigner, outsider or different in London, especially if we are not a native speaker and struggle with the nuances of the English language (we may also find it difficult to make close friends with people we can relate to), experiencing homesickness, inner loneliness or alienation, no longer sure where our "home" now is and where we belong.

Having an impartial perspective in the counselling I usually work both intuitively and with knowledge, experience and understanding of what brings you to counselling. I recognise people can't simply be reduced down to a diagnosis, symptoms or issues. Viewing the counselling as a joint exploration, in my London counselling practice based in Camden, I value the humanity in us all and acknowledge our own resources, qualities and strengths alongside our frailties, limitations and vulnerabilities.

We may feel ill at ease with sex, fear having sex, feel afraid, ashamed, so we tense up in our body, which prevents us relaxing, letting others in or letting go of the physical tensions in our body and we may sexually withdraw. The therapy takes into consideration other psychological influences.

In the stress management or stress therapy it may be important to take some breathing space, pay attention to how we breath, which can take our attention away from our experience of stress. Lifestyle factors influencing our stress levels may include how we unnecessarily expose ourself to what stresses us (including work stress), saying "Yes" when we mean "No", holding negative attitudes, lack of compassion, lack of healthy diet, healthy sex life or playfulness, laughter, sense of humour. Other stress reducing support systems can be offered, so we have some simple tools to control stress.

I am a male counsellor and psychotherapist based in central London, Camden Town. My interest in counselling developed in 1982. I was drawn to it because it was described as a psychology of the soul. In my Camden, central London counselling practice I bring together over 25 years experience of working with people as a counsellor and psychotherapist, both in the voluntary sector and privately.
