Hello and welcome to my page !
I provide a relaxed, compassionate and relational space where you can process your thoughts, feelings and emotions. My private practice work takes place in a comfortable and well ventilated room situated on Hampton Wick High Street. I also work online with clients both in the UK and abroad.
I work with many issues including social anxiety, generalised anxiety disorder, managing anxiety, low moods, depression, coping skills, feeling overwhelmed, isolation, loneliness, suicidal thoughts, abuse and trauma.
What to expect when working with me.
The most important part of the being in therapy, is how you feel about working with me. I would trust your gut instinct, as how you feel about your therapist is a very important part of the process.
In our first session, I am here to listen and gain a deeper understanding of what brought you to therapy. I will ask questions to help with this process. There will also be time for you to ask me any questions about my work or the counselling process in general.
We may create a therapeutic goal together to work towards. This could be a specific goal you had in mind, such as managing low mood and anxiety or learning some coping strategies.
You may not know what your goal is, and that is OK. Providing you with a space to be with and process your thoughts, feelings and emotions is a goal in itself. This alone can be both powerful and life-affirming. The integrative therapy I practice can lead to increased self awareness and a more compassionate understanding of both your past and present self. This helps with the resolution of unhelpful and destructive behaviours, allowing you to reach your full potential.
Training, qualifications & experience
I practice a combined approach of counselling and psychotherapy and can draw upon various methods to inform my practice, including CBT.
I am a full member of the BACP (British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists) and abide by their code of ethics.
I currently practice as a therapist with CAMHS and adults at the Priory hospital as well as my own practice. Previously, I have worked as a therapist in front line NHS services and have worked with mental health for seven years. This has given me experience of working with people who have a wide range of psychological and emotional difficulties.
I also have many years experience of working therapeutically with young people who have mental health difficulties.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)
BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
