I am an experienced person centred counsellor with my own practise in West London. I am able to offer clients a quiet comfortable confidential environment that will allow us to work together. My approach aims to help people resolve long standing issues, develop coping mechanisms and live life in full.
I believe in the potential of all individuals to grow and manage change in difficult times, this is a journey I walk with you and thats the basis of how I work, together we get through what we cannot always do on our own.
Whether you are suffering from Anxiety, depression, addiction, bereavement, relationship difficulties, sexuality or transgender concerns, we can work together to learn how best to manage what is happening for you and coping mechanisms for the immediate time and for the future.
