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
- sexual abuse
- self esteem issues.
I work from a discreet and peaceful room and can offer appointments from 9am to 7pm Monday to Friday & 9 am to 12pm Saturday
I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and my work abides by their Ethical Framework for Good Practice.

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).
