As are many of us, you may be finding life challenging at the moment and need a space where you can feel less alone and have an opportunity to talk through some of the difficulties you may be experiencing or to work through some emotional issues. I offer counselling either via Zoom or face to face in a safe and confidential setting where you can explore your thoughts and feelings and together we can find a way of moving forward. My aim is to support you to gain a greater understanding of yourself and to find your own strengths that will enable you to make the changes that are important to you and to find more fulfilment and satisfaction in your life.
Depending on what your difficulties are and what you may want to change, as an integrative practitioner I draw from a range of psychological and practical approaches to find the most suitable way of working with you. You may find it helpful to have just a few counselling sessions to focus on a specific problem and to obtain some immediate support or you may wish to explore some longer standing issues in more depth which we can do over a longer period of time.
The range of issues that I can support you with include stress, anxiety and depression, relationship and communication difficulties, problems at work, dealing with the impact of early trauma and abuse, low self-esteem, bereavement and grief and understanding feelings of anger.
If you have any queries and would like to discuss arranging an appointment, please can me on 07887 354705 or send me an email. I will aim to get back to you within 48 hours.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a qualified counsellor with 8 years' experience of working in counselling and psychotherapy services, including in the community-based and voluntary sector services (Metanoia Counselling and Psychotherapy Service and Ealing Abbey Counselling Service and in private practice). I hold a Diploma in Integrative Psychodynamic Counselling from the Metanoia Institute in West London.
I am a registered member of the BACP (MBACP) and abide by the BACP Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions. I am also a member of the British Psychological Society (MBPsS).
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.
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.

My fee is £55 for a 50 minute counselling session.

I offer appointments during Monday-Friday evenings between 6 - 9 pm and Saturday morning between 10 am and 1 pm.
My practice is based in Ealing W5 and located close to public transport links.
