About me

If you are looking for counselling at this time, you will have decided not to continue coping alone with a situation that is very painful and which maybe also be painfully familiar.

I am a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist, accredited and registered by the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy, and have been offering affordable counselling support in West London for more than fifteen years.

I invite you to come and have an introductory session with me and see how it feels to begin to unburden yourself and have support.

How I can help:

Whether you are suffering from trauma, bullying, addiction, panic attacks, anxiety, paranoia or depression or you are at a crisis over a relationship issue, counselling gives you the chance to work through your problems in privacy. Feelings that are overwhelming or behaviours in yourself that you can't control can be reasons to decide to get help.

You may be feeling sad or frightened, empty inside or trapped in your own repeating thoughts, or feeling that people are against you. Maybe you find yourself unable to progress in your relationships, friendships or career, or your life in general. At some point in our lives, almost all of us need to be listened to and supported. Sometimes it takes courage to say that we want to make changes.

My areas of training and experience include:

- anxiety
- panic attacks
- relationship issues
- depression
- bipolar disorder                                                                                                  --      -
- abuse (verbal, emotional, physical and/or sexual)
- making life-changing decisions
- loss and bereavement
- visual loss
- diversity and cultural difference
- dissociation
- self-harm
- eating disorders
- post traumatic stress disorder                                                                                            - paranoia                                                                                                                          - addiction                                                                                                                       

How do I start?

By asking for an introductory session, we can discuss how I can help, and how you would like to take counselling forward. You may be bringing a specific problem or several difficulties that you feel that you can't overcome and you can't or don't want to cope alone with them anymore; we would talk these over in your introductory session. I use boundary-setting techniques to help you manage situations, while we work at a deeper lever on what triggers your symptoms. If you choose to continue and have some further sessions, we will address the issues that you are bringing and support you to find a way out of the painful feelings you are having. We will give you the confidence to make changes in your life that you have been needing or wanting to make.

Many of my clients have just taken it one session at a time for a bit, checking that they feel comfortable and motivated to continue. In itself, deciding to have counselling is progress. You can expect to find it a relief to have someone to talk problems over with in a safe place. If you recognise any of your issues in what you have been reading, I encourage you to reach out for the counselling support that I offer.

Short-term or long-term counselling?

You don't have to decide straightaway. Many of my clients come to counselling and play it by ear until a natural pace to the work establishes and they feel what is right for them.

Short-term counselling offers the chance to focus on a specific issue and alleviate the selected target area. We work more in the present than in the past, noticing the triggers that disrupt everyday experiences or set off difficult symptoms.

In longer term counselling, the trust we establish allows us to understand what is happening to you. By becoming aware of the causes of your symptoms, counselling can adjust your responses until you feel more self-esteem and are able to manage situations that usually 'snag' you.

Should I choose individual or couple counselling?

Individual counselling can help with a wide range of difficult situations and problems. You may have historical issues or an addiction or repeating relationship issues. You may be suffering from depression and/or anxiety or not know how to name what is upsetting you. You may feel that you urgently need help or you may feel worried or frightened that your life is spiralling out of control. This range of distress is addressed in individual counselling.

If you come for couple counselling, we would look to see which repeated patterns between you cause arguments. If your relationship is at a crisis point, then the presence of a counsellor can help you each to feel listened to and to voice your side of the difficulties, as we work towards a new understanding. It can be much more productive and safer to have a mediating presence guiding you both through, as you take risks in what you say, in order to save or heal your relationship. (Or look for a healthy ending if that is what you want to agree on, perhaps where children are involved.)
