Panic disorder, anxiety, anger management, depression, addiction, low self-esteem, bereavement, parenting, relationship issues, separation and divorce: these are some of the many issues that motivate people to initiate the therapeutic process. You may feel worried, confused, overwhelmed, stuck, hopeless or isolated. Life could seem like an on-going challenge or you may be facing a particular crisis.
Each of us bring our unique situation and experience to therapy and as such I tailor sessions to work in a way most appropriate and beneficial for you. I am trained as an integrative BACP registered psychotherapist and Fusion®Therapeutic coach which means I am informed by and draw from a wide range of techniques and diagnostic models.
Fundamentally our sessions will involve exploring your thoughts, feelings and patterns of behaviour as it is only with increased reflection, understanding and self-awareness that we are able to take charge of our lives, make positive changes and to live in a more satisfying and fulfilling way.
At our first meeting we will discuss how often and how long the therapeutic process may be.
I have a particular interest in anxiety, anger management, postnatal depression, parenting, women's empowerment and the changing nature of relationships once we become parents.
Generally I work from my comfortable home office with free off road parking. I am a short walk from Willesden Junction station and near many bus routes.
I am a member of the BACP and abide by their code of ethics and practice and attend regular supervision with a UKCP registered supervisor.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
