About me

I am a Chartered Counselling Psychologist with experience of working with people from all walks of life who are looking for time and space to work on specific problems or more wider and deeper rooted concerns.

I have extensive experience in the psychological field, working mainly in the community with people of all ages and backgrounds. I have 16 years of experience working within the NHS where I see client's as well as work in a supervisory capacity.

I have been trained across the counselling / psychotherapy approaches-Humanistic, Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. I am currently training in Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) for trauma.  Within my practice, I use the best of all these approaches in order to provide you a productive, forward moving, therapeutic and caring psychological journey.

I am able to offer time limited sessions or longer term therapy depending on your needs.  I offer a private, safe, clean and comfortable environment for us to work through what you bring to therapy.  My practice is based in W10 and easily accessible by public transport (Queens Park, Kensal Rise).  My practice can easily be reached from neighbouring areas such as Willesden Green, Kilburn, Maida Vale, Harlesden, Neasden and Cricklewood.

Its not always easy to reach out, its not always easy to find the right therapist. You may not know exactly what your looking for and that's okay. If you find yourself wondering what to expect, how it works or want a consultation before you choose to commit, just get in touch by phone, text or email and I'll be happy to discuss any questions or queries

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
