“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and right doing there is a field. I will meet you there” (Jalal ad-Din Mohammed Rumi, 1207-1273). For me, this prose epitomizes the values that underpin my psychotherapeutic approach. In my work, I aim to provide my clients with time and space to explore issues which feel troubling to them, in a confidential, safe, supportive and non-judgemental environment.
I have over 7 years experience working with adults on a wide range of issues including:
- relationship issues
- family issues
- separation and loss
- low self-esteem and confidence
- work-place related stress
During this time I have worked in private practise and for a number of not-for-profit organizations, including Ealing Abbey Counselling Service, Metanoia Counselling and Psychotherapy Service, The Mulberry Centre for cancer patients and carers, and Cruse Bereavement Care. I currently work at Phoenix Counselling and Psychotherapy Service as Counselling Coordinator and Psychotherapist.
In private practice I offer short (6-12 weeks) and long term (12+ weeks), individual sessions. The length of time we would work together would be decided between the two of us. Sessions are 50 minutes on a once weekly basis and concessions may be available.

I understand it may be difficult for you to make the first phone call or email and I will do all I can to put you at your ease. The initial consultation and introduction session is designed to allow you to meet me, ask questions and to start to talk about the issues you are dealing with as well as your hopes, anxieties and expectations about counselling.
My practice is based in Twickenham - a short bus ride from either Twickenham, Richmond or Isleworth train stations (H37 or 267) or a 10 minute walk from St Margarets train Station (also on the H37 bus route). Parking in my road is free.
