About me

My practice:

Welcome. I am an experienced and fully qualified practitioner working in South West London, providing Psychotherapy and Counselling for adults and adolescents. My aim as a therapist is to help you work through painful or confusing experiences, address your fears and to encourage you to become more emotionally robust- all in a safe, confidential and therapeutic environment. I believe in self compassion, self confidence and our human essence.

I can help with anxiety, generalised anxiety disorder, addiction, depression, eating disorders, stress, relationships, bereavement and traumatic events especially relating to panic attacks and PTSD.

The first session allows me to find out what has brought you to therapy, and assess how many sessions you may require. I offer short term therapy (6-10 sessions) and longer term therapy is also available.

My background:

I trained at Regents's University in Integrative Psychotherapy and Counselling Psychology and I also incorporate Mindfulness and EMDR in my practice. I previously worked as a psychotherapist for the NHS and I am a fully qualified and accredited member of the BACP.

My therapy services are also underpinned by my corporate and entrepreneurial experience. In 2002 I created an Interior Design company and running a creative enterprise has deepened my understanding of managing stress and finding balance.

I am located at my private practice in Brook Green, Hammersmith. W6

Member organisations

BACP

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.
