Hello and welcome to Sage Therapy.
*In light of the recent Corona Virus outbreak, I will be offering telephone, zoom, FaceTime or WhatsApp sessions. For Key-workers or anyone struggling right now Please get in touch for further details. Wishing all of you well in these testing times.
I am a fully qualified and experienced integrative counsellor, this means I draw upon a range of methods to suit each individual to help deal with what is going on for you at this point in your life, helping you to make sense of it all and figure out how to move on from where you are in your life, to serve you well from this point forward.
I offer a safe empathic space for you to discover your inner strengths that maybe hidden, sometimes in life we don't realise just how strong we are until we make time to discover it.
I offer a Saturday 1-2-1 Practice in a warm comfortable room in Teddington.
I also offer Sunday “Walk and talk” in our Local Royal parks. Nature is naturally healing and is a great place to begin to open up and connect in therapy.
Training, qualifications & experience
FDSC Integrative Counselling and psychotherapy I have worked for numerous charities, Together (working for well-being), The Place2be, Integrated neurological services and Hounslow youth counselling service.
I have over twelve years experience working in the field of mental health, supporting adults with mental health issues such as bi-polar disorder, psychosis and depression.
I have also worked with children and teenagers supporting them to make sense of the world around them. I have worked with individuals who suffer with neurological disorders, supporting them to find a place where they can begin again.
I have extensive knowledge and practised in the field of early childhood trauma and abuse.
Mental health is health at its very core, yet it is often overlooked by the many. Holding potentially damaging feelings in, is ultimately stifling yourself.
My belief is if you look after your mental health your physical health will naturally improve and you will begin to grow to the very best of your potential.
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.

Concessions offered for
sometimes life can throw things at us that can leave us feeling bewildered and a little bit lost. At these times it can be the hardest for us to admit to ourselves that we may be stuck in a situation
in my practice I work in a way so you can gain acceptance and clarity of your situation, to support you in moving forward in your life
Mindfulness meditation for clients that suffer with anxiety.
Anxiety is where your thoughts take over and become all consuming which can affect your day to day living in a negative way. Mindfulness allows you to begin to be in control, clearing the mind and in time channeling your thought path in a more positive manner. You control your mind, it doesn’t control you.
Early childhood trauma.
As much as we may fantasise about our childhoods being fantastic, none of us come unscathed by what may have been in the past growing up.
We all have a story to make sense of, perhaps patterns of behaviour that are unhealthy and unhelpful for you in your adult life? I offer a safe space for you to open up and understand what is going on for you in the present, that may relate to your past.
Acceptance to move on.
Throughout my career what i notice is the majority can speak their story, yet the struggle is to accept and let go.
In my methods I will support you in gaining insight and strength to move forward in a more hopeful and positive perspective.
“To live is to suffer, to survive is to find meaning in the suffering.” (Friedrich Nietzsche).
You don’t have to do it on your own.
