As an accredited psychotherapist I offer a friendly, confidential and supportive service to individuals (children, adolescents & adults) and couples. I have experience working with a wide range of issues including;
- Loss and bereavement
- Low self esteem
- Relationship & family issues
- Stress and illness
I practice from the peaceful setting of Little Venice, which is a short walk from either Paddington or Warwick Avenue W2 stations and is near Maida Vale and Bayswater.
I understand how overwhelming life can be at times and I believe talking through the challenges can offer support and provide a space in which to untie the knots that prevent us from moving forward.
For 25 years I worked in the Retail and Marketing industry before deciding to moving into the world of self-development and counselling. I work integratively, drawing on various models and backgrounds, depending on the needs of my clients. Through on-going study, workshops and CPD training I continue to deepen and expand my skills and enrich my practice. I have completed a Masters in Child, Adolescent and Family Psychotherapy.
I am professionally supervised and work within the ethical guidance of the UKCP.
I undertake personal therapy as part of my ongoing training and therefore understand what it is to be a client.
