Are you feeling sad, low or depressed? Perhaps you're struggling with relationship issues, battling low self-esteem or suffering from a panic or anxiety disorder. Or maybe you're finding it hard to manage and understand feelings of anger, loss, rejection or other powerful emotions. If so, counselling and psychotherapy can offer a real opportunity for change.
Often the way you're feeling can stem from experiences that are beyond your immediate understanding. Counselling and psychotherapy aims to develop an awareness of some of these emotions, experiences and behaviours within a safe and confidential environment, with the aim of relieving distress and encouraging change.
Though friends and family can be very supportive, sometimes in life it can be difficult to talk to those closest to us about the things that bother us most. I'm committed to supporting you every step of the way on your journey, no matter how long that takes and no matter how difficult it may become. I promise to always treat you in a respectful, caring and nurturing manner, regardless of race, religion, gender, age or sexuality. Your wellbeing will always be my number one priority.
I am an experienced, qualified and professionally registered counsellor and psychotherapist, offering both short and longer term therapy. I work from two locations in Chiswick, one on the main High Road (W4 5TA) and one on the boarders with Barnes and Kew (W4 2SA). I also see clients one day a week in Ealing (W5 2XP). I offer a reduced price initial consultation to give you the opportunity to see if my style of therapy is right for you.
