Hello, my name is Adam and I offer integrative therapy for adults in Hackney.
Therapy offers you a space to think about where you are in your life and where you’d like to be. I believe that therapy can help you live a more authentic and meaningful life.
I offer a warm and supportive space where you can share what has brought you to therapy. People come to therapy for all sorts of reasons; all are valid.
Perhaps you are feeling depressed, anxious, angry, stuck or suffering from low self-esteem. You might be struggling with your sexuality or gender identity.
Perhaps you are feeling dissatisfied with your relationships with friends, partners or work colleagues. Or maybe you’d like to work through something specific that has happened.
Therapy can’t ‘fix’ us, or erase our past, but it can help us move forwards and make positive changes in our lives.
I welcome diversity in my private practice and have been fortunate to work with people from all walks of life.
As well as my private practice, I have experience of working for the NHS and supported people struggling with:
– Anxiety, including social anxiety
– Depression and feeling sad
– Family issues
– Concerns about work
– Relationship and dating, including dating apps
– Low self-esteem and low self-confidence
– Worries about sex
– Identity issues
– Feeling lonely and isolated
– Bereavement and loss.
Working with the LGBTQ+ community
I have particular experience in supporting members of the LGBTQ+ community.
I offer an affirmative space where you can freely explore your sexuality, gender identity and relationship problems.
In the past, I have volunteered as a therapist at an adult counselling service specialising in supporting the LGBTQ+ community.
I have also volunteered for an LGBTQ+ drug and alcohol service, supporting people struggling with alcohol and chemsex.
I wrote Mind’s first information on the mental health challenges that the LGBTQ+ community can face.
Working with men
Anyone can struggle with their mental health, but research suggests that some men struggle to ask for help. The reasons for this are complex. Society’s expectations and traditional ideas about gender, such as ‘boys don’t cry’, play a part in preventing some men from talking about their feelings and getting help.
Therapy can provide men with a non-judgmental space to share what is troubling them. I have experience working with men to help them begin to open up and be heard.
I am an integrative therapist. This approach brings together different styles of therapy so that each therapeutic relationship can be tailored to the person I am working with. I was drawn to training in this way as it recognises that we are all unique and offers different approaches for life’s difficulties. I am sensitive to how our race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality and class backgrounds shape our identities.
I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP). I hold a Diploma in Counselling from The Minster Centre. I am currently completing an Advanced Diploma and MA in Psychotherapy.
Before training as a therapist, I worked for a number of media companies in events, journalism and publishing, so I understand the stresses and pressures of creative and commercial industries.
Alongside my therapy training, for five years, I worked for Mind, researching and writing about mental health, ensuring that the information was shaped together with people with lived experience.
