A confidential space to explore the thoughts, feelings and challenges in your life
My name is Jennifer Levy and I am a Psychotherapist & Counsellor providing both short- and long-term therapy to adult individuals in East Twickenham, Teddington and the surrounding areas of Richmond & West London. I also offer counselling online, using Zoom.
We all experience times of difficulty in our lives, when events or relationships feel overwhelming, or we can feel a loss of direction or purpose. Talking to a trained professional helps us make sense of those challenging times and offers a way through them, moving towards a better understanding of ourselves and our feelings.
Making the decision to see a counsellor is a big step to take – but it can be a positive one. Please read on to find out more about how I could help you.
Counselling takes place in a safe space, where you can meet with someone who will listen with sensitivity and empathy – and without judgement. In the therapy space thoughts and feelings can be expressed freely and in confidence.
Trouble with a relationship; anxiety or panic attacks; mood swings or depression – many people face difficulties in their everyday lives that can be hard to get on top of. Counselling gives us a set of tools we can use to help gain a better understanding of what’s causing these problems – and how you can move towards managing or resolving them.
Personal growth & Self Development
whether it be refining and redefining personal goals, exploring areas of stuckness, or realigning with a meaning and purpose that feels authentic for you – therapy can offer the space for reflection , and gaining a deeper understanding of what may be holding you back and the way forward.
Working together I can help you gain greater insight into the difficulties you are facing, help you understand why you act or react to them the way you do, and see how you can start to make better, healthier choices moving forward.
People come to me for help a wide range of issues. Here are a few of the more common difficulties that can be supported through counselling:
Feelings of stress or anxiety
Grief, loss or bereavement
Problems with addiction
Trauma and post-traumatic stress
Problems with confidence or self-esteem
Issues relating to sexuality
Difficulties at work or in retirement
Problems with family or school life
Life brings many challenges, and it is understandable that at times we might look for support in facing them. As a counsellor my role is to provide space and guidance to help you on your journey of self-discovery; to enable you to examine your life and make new, meaningful choices within it.
I offer a chance to reflect on the difficulties or problems you are experiencing in a safe and confidential environment, with someone from outside your day-to-day life. Together we can explore your situation in a way that leads to fresh perspectives – and perhaps a new understanding of yourself. Counselling isn’t about giving you solutions or advice, but empowering you to make your own changes.
My style of working is called Integrative. This involves utlising many different styles of practice, to work in a way that is built around your specific needs. The work is client centered- which means my job is to accompany you on your journey – offering guidance from a psychological perspective- towards what the founder of person-centered counselling, Carl Rogers, called ‘self-actualisation’. Person-centered work is focused on empathy, a non-judgemental approach and providing emotional support; everyone has a built-in motivation to reach for their full potential, but sometimes need a bit of support to get there!
