About me

What are my qualifications?

I am a qualified Registered Relational Transactional Analysis (TA) Psychotherapeutic Counsellor MBACP (Dip, Psych Counselling) and Relational TA Psychotherapist - in Advanced clinical training (UKCP).

I am registered with the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapists (UKCP) and I am bound to working within the BACP's and UKCP’s ethical framework.

As a specialist in Relational Transactional Analysis, I am a member of the International Association of Relational Transactional Analysis (IARTA) and a trainee member of the European Association for Transactional Analysis (EATA) - and I am bound to working within their ethical framework too.

Personally, I have first-hand experience of coaching, psychotherapy, counselling and mindfulness-based interventions and I understand what it is like to sit in the chair as a client.

This means I am a big believer in reaching out and asking for professional help whenever support with life’s challenges is needed.

Today, I hold my own private practice in West London in Chiswick, W4, and South Kensington, SW7. Both locations are private, safe, tranquil spaces for you to unravel your difficulties.

How can Psychotherapeutic Counselling and Psychotherapy help?

Some people find that psychotherapeutic counselling or longer term psychotherapy can help to make sense of the past or help evolve and transform themselves from feeling stuck into feeling like their ‘true-self’ again, perhaps after some of the most difficult situations in their lives.

How do I work with my clients?

I work with my clients using a variety of approaches integrated to suit the individual. My holistic and integrative approach has proven effective in helping my clients to accept themselves fully and transform their quality of life.

Counselling and psychotherapy has also helped my clients to improve how they communicate with others, significantly improving their relationships.

However, I truly believe that 'one size does not fit all' and apply this way of working to my clients, using a variety of methods from across the psychology sector to help individuals understand themselves and reclaim that ‘inner strength’ and to shift away from a sense of something being wrong to feeling right again.

In terms of working with my clients for a specific period of time, some clients have been with me for years and others prefer shorter-term work. This is something we can discuss to suit you and work at a pace that feels appropriate. 

What can I help you with in terms of my expertise? 

I can help with bereavement and loss, sadness, anxiety and panic attacks, depression, post traumatic stress and trauma, all traumatic syndromes, low self-esteem, menstruation and hormonal issues, as well as fertility issues, sex and sexuality, difficulties with relationships or workplace issues, and major career transitions.

I am non-discriminatory, race and LGBTQ+ affirmative, and I honour individuality whilst fostering a sense of empowerment in my work with everyone.

Whatever it is, together we can work on what it is you want to change, and formulate a way forwards towards genuine and lasting change.

If there’s something you’d like to ask me in confidence, or discuss with me today, email me or call me direct.

Training, qualifications & experience

I gained a Post Graduate Diploma in Relational Transactional Analysis Psychotherapeutic Counselling from one of the UK's most highly regarded Psychotherapy & Counselling training organisations, Metanoia Institute.

As part of my therapeutic tool-box I also qualified as a Human Potential Coach (Dip Coaching) in 2016, where I was trained to use proven cutting-edge practical tools from the world of Positive Psychology, to help facilitate individuals in developing self-awareness, becoming more mindful, and empowering them to make positive changes in their lives.

As a requirement of the BACP and UKCP, I am fully insured and I receive regular professional clinical supervision with some of the most experienced clinical supervisors in the industry, which ensures a safe and high-quality environment required to work ethically whilst staying up-to-speed with the evolving nature of the counselling and psychotherapy world.

Member organisations

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.
