About me

Sometimes life can be difficult for many reasons. Counselling can help you explore and understand your feelings in a safe environment where you won't be judged. It can make the difference between existing and living.

Sometimes a chat with a friend is not enough and we need some professional support.

I am a qualified and experienced Counsellor, Family Therapist, Child Development & Behaviour Specialist based in Isleworth, West London (TW7), close to West Middlesex Hospital and Twickenham Stadium. I have worked many years in schools, counselling agencies and the Hounslow Council Youth Offending Team as a Parent Support Worker.

I am also married with two children and have worked with a wide range of clients, age groups, cultures and issues.

I am a member of BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) and use a variety of approaches in my work.

Please visit my website for more information, including feedback from previous clients.
