I am an experienced, approachable psychotherapist and counsellor based in a central location in Ealing Broadway W5.
Issues I work with include depression, anxiety, stress, lack of confidence, relationship concerns, work and family worries, OCD, panic attacks, sadness, phobias, emotional abuse, loneliness, trauma, anger issues, low self esteem, bi-polar disorder,bereavement and more.
If you have worries, are experiencing a difficult time in your relationships, have concerns about your well being or mental health, or are feeling sad and want to have a better understanding of yourself, I offer a confidential, safe, non-judgemental space where together we can address your needs.
My approach is Integrative, Humanistic and Person-Centred, based on working collaboratively with my clients in order to meet their unique needs. I consider that a relationship based on confidentiality, trust and mutual respect is instrumental for a successful outcome to therapy.
Prior to becoming a psychotherapist I worked for many years in the field of education, as a teacher, manager and as an SEN consultant. During this period I also qualified as an educational psychologist. This background has given me an understanding of the impact of early experiences on development but also a strong belief in human resilience and the ability to change.
In addition to my private practice I have worked in a variety of different settings including charitable organisations, the psychotherapy department of a London teaching hospital, services for young people and adolescents and in secondary and special schools. I also have experience of working within an NHS Mental Health Service.
I am based in a central location in Ealing, opposite Ealing Broadway Station, and very close to mainline, underground and bus links. Public car parking is close by. In addition to Ealing, the location is accessible for many areas including Acton, Hounslow, Shepherd's Bush, Chiswick, Southall, Ruislip, Hammersmith, Richmond, Greenford, Hanwell and Brentford.
I offer evening and day time appointments, including Saturdays.
Please contact me by email, text or phone if you would like further information.
I am registered as a provider of counselling and psychotherapy for BUPA, AVIVA and CIGNA.
I abide by the UKCP and BACP Codes of Ethics.
