Kensington And Chelsea
The Haslemere Clinic
When we have problems in our life, or life itself seems problematic, it can help to talk to a caring professional. I offer the opportunity to engage in a non-judgemental and confidential exploration of your world. I am a fully qualified counsellor working with adults and teenagers and offer both short term and long term support.
I believe the relationship my client and I build is the most important element in the healing process. When this working relationship is collaborative, trusting and feels safe it encourages understanding of what can be changed in your life and how to accept and better manage what cannot be changed.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a qualified and accredited counsellor in an integrative-relational approach. This approach draws on a range of theories which means I can tailor our collaborative work to best fit your individual concerns within a safe and compassionate environment.
I have worked with CRUSE Bereavement Care and AMS Bereavement Support, counselling both adults and children through their difficult time of grief and loss. I have also gained insight into excluded and struggling teenagers through my work with Surrey Care Trust. This work also included working with older individuals as a mentor to help with their personal goals.
My counselling experience of supporting clients has included a wide range of difficulties. These include abuse, anxiety problems, bereavement, cancer, childhood abuse or neglect, depression, low self-esteem, MS, pregnancy and birth, rape, relationship issues, sex problems, sexual and gender identity issues, stress, terminal illness and work related stress.

As I believe in the importance of the therapeutic relationship, I encourage clients to meet me to ask any questions and to see if we would feel comfortable working together. This first session is free and there are no obligations to commit.
Thereafter, if we both decide to work together, I would normally see you weekly over an agreed period.
Fees are payable at the beginning of each session:
The fee for each session in my private practice near Sloane Square, London is £70
The fee for each session in my private practice in Haslemere, Surrey is £45
I offer short and long term work. Each session is 50 minutes long.
I am an accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and I am bound by its Ethical Framework. My work is supervised by a senior practitioner.
