About me

I am a fully-qualified BACP-accredited Humanistic Psychotherapeutic Counsellor offering private sessions for adults in West London (Chiswick & Ealing) and online.

What I can help with

I work with a range of issues, including: anxiety, depression, trauma, adverse childhood experiences, abuse, illness, bereavement and loss, discrimination and oppression, workplace problems, family and relationship problems, identity conflicts, and life transitions. I support clients in finding meaning, belonging and purpose. 

What you will find

I offer a confidential space where whatever you bring to therapy is welcomed in its own time, without judgement. With open-minded curiosity, we pay attention to the thoughts and feelings that are often drowned out by daily responsibilities, social pressures and survival-mode thinking. With careful listening, we encounter your own insightful awareness and make room for your authentic self-expression and creativity. We rely on these innate resources to guide the healing process.

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.
