- I have a private practice in Maida Vale. I also see clients at home in Shepherds Bush, West London.
At this time of isolation, it is so easy to feel lonely and cut off. I am offering supportive counselling online, via Zoom or on the phone. I feel it is so important to stay connected, even though we are socially isolating.
I see therapy as a way of getting behind the immediate and isolating problems we face, to the richer, more meaningful layers that lie naturally within us. With a better understanding and awareness of oneself, it is possible to find a more settled way of being.
I offer a safe and confidential space to discuss and be with whatever arises, allowing time for mindful reflection alongside the struggles and conflicts that life presents.
The therapy is shaped by the unique needs of the client.
I work with a wide range of difficulties including anxiety, depression, eating disorders, bereavement, childhood trauma and relationship problems.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
