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 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.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
