I am a UKCP accredited psychotherapist with a supportive and practical approach that I am able to adapt to suit your individual needs and lifestyle.
I qualified as an Integrative Psychotherapist. This means I am trained in a variety of different therapeutic approaches that I am able to integrate and tailor to suit your specific needs. These approaches include:
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness, Psychoanalysis, Person-Centred/Humanistic and Existential therapy.
I also have an interest in the benefits of exercise, music and art on psychological well-being.
Making the decision to begin counselling is never easy and I respect the courage and commitment required to undertake this process. Therefore, it is my starting point and fundamental aim to create a safe, confidential environment where you can speak freely about anything you wish without fear of judgement.
In doing so I can provide you with regular and consistent support and help equip you with the tools you need to feel psychologically strong and emotionally healthy.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have been seeing clients in individual therapy for nearly 10 years and currently work as an NHS Psychotherapist in Hounslow, taking referrals from GPs. This has given me the opportunity to work with people from diverse backgrounds, with extremely challenging personal circumstances and to learn what is most effective in helping them.
Previously I have worked as a counsellor for the mental health charity Mind and spent 4 years with Cruse specialising in bereavement counselling.
Before (and during) my psychotherapy training I worked in advertising analysis and consultancy. I also have a degree in Physiology & Pharmacology from University College London.
I completed all 6 years of my psychotherapy training at Regent's University School of Psychotherapy & Psychology in London and am a fully accredited member of the UKCP and a registered member of the BACP.

Each session costs £70 for 50 minutes.
If you would like counselling the first step is to call or email so we can arrange to meet.
The first meeting will be an opportunity for us to discuss what has brought you to counselling and what you would like to get out of the sessions. It will also provide you with an opportunity to ask me any questions.
I will give you some information about my practice and how I work so you can make an informed decision about what is best for you. Then you can contact me when you feel ready to take the next step. There is no commitment to continue after the first session.
I offer short term (6-12 sessions) and open-ended counselling. Some people find it useful to try counselling for an initial 6 sessions after which we can discuss whether you wish to continue.
