About me

My aim is to enable you deal with difficulties and progress towards the life you want to lead. I have a beautiful garden therapy room where I offer empathy and support to facilitate the transitions you want to make.

HOW I WORK
I can help you to identify the experiences and issues which are holding you back, offering the confidential space and time you require, to navigate from where you are to where you want to be. I am not here to give advice but I will listen to you, and explore with you: to discover the answers, solutions and strategies you need.

SOME OF THE ISSUES I CAN HELP YOU WITH
I can support and help with a wide range of issues including

  • Anxiety including Social Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Panic attacks and disorder
  • Relationships
  • Self esteem and confidence issues
  • Bereavement and loss
  • Trauma including PTSD
  • Stress


THE TYPE OF COUNSELLING I OFFER

I offer integrative counselling, including CBT, which is tailored to each individual. I work hard to ensure I keep up to date with relevant developments in the fields of psychology and psychotherapy in order to offer my clients the best service I can.


WHAT CLIENTS HAVE SAID ABOUT MY WORK

“I saw the value in having each and every session. Thank you for your strategies, exercises and views on my development. It has changed who I am and has really given me a way of dealing with my thoughts and my worries.”

“Since the start of our sessions I have felt uplifted and more relaxed.  I am grateful for all the help you provided in my most difficult time.  My life will never be the same.”

“My counsellor was excellent.  She listened to me with kindness and patience.  My counselling has means I feel good about myself and stand up for myself and I look forward to the future”

“When I look back to who I was a few months ago I feel like an entirely different person. I honestly can’t thank you enough; I’ve never felt so in control.”

Training, qualifications & experience

MY EXPERIENCE AND EXPERTISE
I have extensive experience with a wide range of presenting issues but I believe in always seeing people as individuals with diverse and unique experiences.

I have worked across a range of different counselling settings and clients including with students and staff at a leading London University, with children, parents and staff at a large West London primary school and at a Middlesex based hospice where I offered support to carers and the bereaved.   At Transition Counselling I work across diverse ages, cultures and social backgrounds.

If I had to list specific areas, where I have successfully supported clients to overcome problems, they would include:

  • anxiety, stress and panic
  • self confidence/self esteem problems
  • difficulty with maintaining relationships
  • depression and lack of motivation
  • dealing with childhood issues including bullying and abuse
  • finding a way to navigate bereavement and loss

Fees

My standard fee is £50 per hour. However the initial session costs £25. This will give you a chance to find out more about how therapy can help and enable you to make a more informed decision about undertaking further sessions.

I do not offer a minimum or fixed number of sessions but prefer to discuss progress as therapy unfolds and work on a session by session basis. While I am happy to give my professional view it is always the client's decision which takes precedence.

I am in walking distance (5-8 minutes) of South Ruislip station which is on the Central Line (tube) and also accessible by overground from London Marylebone and connecting stations. The local bus stop (2 minutes) is for the 114 bus.

There is free parking available.
