Welcome to my profile page. My name is Isobel and I am a qualified Integrative Therapist and a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP).
I offer a comfortable, safe and non-judgmental environment in which to explore your emotions and issues in confidence, and take an holistic approach to counselling. I believe every individual is unique and tailor my approach specifically to you and your needs. In our work together, I will draw upon the disciplines of all the psychological modalities together with working with your physical condition and the spiritual and cultural "you" in order to harmoniously enable a much more healthy and balanced move towards your well-being.
Sometimes our circumstances, pace of life and way of being can take us to difficult, overwhelming and immobilising places. Perhaps this is where you are at right now, challenged by your emotions and circumstances? Whatever has brought you to this point to be inspired to explore moving your life forward, together we can look at what your goals and aspirations are, what you wish to achieve from therapy and how you can work towards this outcome.
I currently provide both long-term and time limited one-to-one therapy in my practices in Hammersmith and Chelsea. The length of time for our therapy together is something that we can discuss and agree on together at our first meeting.
Since 2006, I have had the privilege of working with clients from broad and diverse arenas, ages and cultures in NHS settings, charities and also privately; exploring a plethora of issues such as depression and anxiety, stress, bereavement and loss, trauma, work related issues, cultural and identity issues, self esteem, relationship difficulties, life transitions and isolation; and together working towards a positive goal, better emotional and physical health and an increased feeling of well-being.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

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).
