West Brompton, London
07729 533 955
I am a fully qualified psychotherapist practicing in West London. I offer short, long-term and open-ended counselling and psychotherapy.
Typically my clients come to me looking for help with distress, anxiety and depression arising from an often complex mix of concerns such as bereavement, job loss, relationship difficulties, cultural displacement, abuse and trauma, inter-generational difficulties, infant and childhood experiences.
I recognise it takes courage to seek help and that choosing the right therapist can feel daunting. Please contact me if you would like to know more or would like to arrange an initial telephone consultation to talk through your concerns and how we might work together.
In addition to my private practice I also work within an NHS IAPT counselling service offering short-term therapy.
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained at the School of Psychotherapy and Psychology at Regent’s University London, and am a fully qualified psychotherapist and counsellor and a registered member of the UKCP (United Kingdom Council of Psychotherapists) and the BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy). I am committed to on-going professional development and training and I subscribe to and am guided by the UKCP and BACP codes of ethics for good practice.

My way of working:
There are many different approaches to psychotherapy. As an integrative psychotherapist I draw on a number of ways of working that emphasise and encourage increased self-awareness, understanding and personal growth. I am interested in how my clients' make sense of their world, their thoughts and patterns of behaviours and how these may impact on relationships and day-to-day life. I'm also interested in my clients' infant and childhood relationships and experiences as I believe these can offer clues to how and who we are in adult life.
At the heart of my work is the therapeutic relationship. I approach each new client with a compassionate and open mind, tailoring the work to fit your unique needs. Together, within the safety of a confidential, non-judgemental and supportive environment, we will explore your difficulties, your physical and emotional feelings, the challenges you feel you face in your life.
Often just being able to talk to someone new and unconnected with your life can, in itself, be a source of relief and comfort, and the start of a shift in thinking and understanding, which can lead to a more fulfilling life and enriching relationships.
Getting to me:
My practice is based in a quiet residential street situated between the North End Road and Queens Tennis Club. I am about an 8 minute walk from West Brompton (District and Overground Lines) and West Kensington (District Line) tube stations, and a 15 minute walk from Baron's Court tube (Piccadilly Line). Bus routes 28 and 391 stop at the end of the road. Pay and display parking is available close by and parking is free after 5pm and on Saturdays.
Access to the rooms is at street level.
