About me

You may feel that something in your life is not quite right. Whether you begin therapy with clear ideas of what you want to change or you want to start exploring this, I want to take that journey of transformation with you. 

We will start by exploring what brought you to therapy and what you would hope to achieve in our sessions. We will look at self-limiting issues that may be holding you back and explore ways to liberate yourself from them. I offer a warm, non-judgemental environment, in which you can process difficult thoughts and feelings. Together we will create a reflective alliance to explore and validate your personal experiences. Developing a new perspective and a strong and healthy sense of self will allow you to create change. I will support you to identify and draw on your inner resources to find meaning and to live a fuller, more satisfying life.

I am a qualified Psychotherapist and Psychotherapeutic Counsellor. I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). The foundation of my therapeutic framework is in humanistic and existential approach with a holistic view of each client. As an Integrative therapist,  I have a solid foundation in a variety of other theoretical approaches. This allows me to tailor my way of working to attend to your unique needs. This often includes some of the following: I will help you to identify patterns in your thoughts and behaviours and find ways to change them, provide you with tools and techniques to manage anxiety and low self-esteem, explore your past and how this affects you today and support you to discover your potential and ability to make the right choices.

If you would like to explore whether we could work together, please contact me to arrange an initial free 15 min phone conversation which will help us to decide if working together would be beneficial and appropriate to your needs. 

I am offering face to face sessions in Harrow, HA1 1BD (right next to the Harrow on the Hill underground station) and in Pinner, HA5 5NE (2 minutes walking distance from Pinner underground station) as well as online counselling sessions.

Thank you for taking the time to find out about me. I hope to have the opportunity to learn about you.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
