I work primarily in a client-centred way, tailoring my approach to your needs, while creating a safe space to explore whatever you need to explore. You may be feeling lost or searching for meaning in your life or going through a difficult transition and need to talk. I aim to help you find your own answers - from discovering how to live a happier more fulfilling life and realising your potential to learning how to be in relationships without losing yourself.
My warm and empathic approach will help you find and trust your true self, so that you may understand yourself better and make the transformations you want in your life.
After you contact me, we will arrange an initial session to see if we are a good fit and you are comfortable working with me. We will then arrange a mutually convenient weekly slot either on an open ended basis or for a more focused agreed period of time, depending on your needs which we can discuss when we meet.
I see clients in Little Venice W2 (a short walk from Paddington), in Twickenham and online.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
UK Council for Psychotherapy
The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.
As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.
UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
