About me

I have many years of experience working with people who are suffering. Sharing difficult feelings and experiences within a confidential space can help to shift perspectives, alter how you feel about things and open up possibilities.

Over the years, I have helped clients with the following issues:

  • Relationship difficulty/breakdown
  • Despair, loneliness and isolation
  • Depression and feelings of hopelessness
  • Anxiety
  • Living with chronic illness
  • The complexities of ageing
  • Feelings of not being able to move forwards
  • Low self-worth

Much of how I work is underpinned by a belief in the uniqueness of each person and how they experience the world and others around them. In therapy, this individuality and any issues that have arisen, can be explored with support and care.The relationship between therapist and client is a crucial aspect of the therapeutic process and is in part what allows the thinking and the feelings that arise, to be dealt with in new ways.We can decide together whether what is needed is a brief intervention for a current life event, crisis or situation, or whether longer term work might be helpful.

I am a registered member of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I work within their ethical frameworks for good practice.

I work in West London, W4, in a therapeutic space that is easily accessible by public transport; there is also pay-and-display parking nearby.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

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.

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.

UKCP

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.
