About me

I am a fully qualified and experienced Integrative Counsellor working 1 to 1 with adults and young people in Chiswick.

I offer a confidential, non-judgemental and safe space in which to explore the challenges, difficulties and experiences that are bringing you to counselling.

I believe that in working collaboratively to identify unhelpful patterns and habits we can effect positive change for growth and fulfilment. You may be feeling overwhelmed, sad or stuck in which case counselling can provide a quiet oasis for reflection and healing.

Counselling is a time for you and I see my role as a supportive and empathic companion on your journey.

In my work with charities and in private practice I have experience of working with:

  • bereavement and loss
  • trauma & PTSD
  • dissociation
  • depression
  • relationships
  • sexual abuse
  • anger
  • anxiety
  • self esteem issues.

I work from a discreet and peaceful room and can offer appointments from 9am to 6pm Monday to Friday 

I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and my work abides by their Ethical Framework for Good Practice.

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.
