I am a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist with over 20 years of experience
I have worked with both private clients and a number of organisations including a counselling service funded by the NHS, the RNIB and the London Rape Crisis Center. Currently, I offer short term and open-ended counselling/therapy at my private practice in Eastcote and also at a group practice, called One Therapy which is based in Oxford Circus.
I use a number of different approaches to enable me to work sensitively with my clients. These include Transactional Analysis, Person-Centred, cognitive-behavioural therapy and attachment theory.
At our first meeting we will discuss what problems and difficulties you might be experiencing and how I can best support you to make any life changes you may wish to. My aim is to create a safe space, through listening and empathy where you can express your feelings and thoughts without judgement.

Training, qualifications & experience
Training and Quallifications
I am a BACP Accredited Counsellor and a UKCP Registered Psychotherapist. l also hold a MSc in Psychotherapy.
I became interested in counselling as in the 1980s I was involved in HIV/AIDS work. I felt very moved by what I was witnessing : loss, bereavement, death, prejudice and hope. I felt ill-equipped to deal with painful and complex issues. During this period, my manager was training to be a therapist. I was deeply impacted by how he would with sit with painful and difficult feelings in an empathic and respectful way. I said to myself, " I want to do that." That's how I began my training to be a therapist in 1991.
