About me

I am a UKCP-accredited Humanistic Psychotherapist offering private sessions for adults in West London (Chiswick & Ealing).

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.

Training, qualifications & experience

I’m a Registered Member of the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and I’m bound by its Ethical Framework.

I have a MSc in Psychotherapy and a Postgraduate Diploma in Humanistic Psychotherapeutic Counselling from the Metanoia Institute in London.

I'm a qualified Alexander Technique teacher (PG Dip MSTAT) with 12 years experience.

I also have a Masters in Education and a professional background in education, research and international development. 

Qualifications: BA (Hons), M.Ed, PG Dip (MSTAT), PG Dip (MBACP), MSc.
