I am based in Chiswick W4, close to Kew Bridge. Due to Covid-19 I am mainly helping people online by Skype, Zoom, WhatsApp and telephone but I do offer face to face meetings in Hammersmith. I am a BACP member with a focus on Schema Therapy which heals relationship wounds and seeks to change and understand why you keep repeating negative cycles of behaviour.
I have a private practice in which I help individuals on a part time basis. I have experience working with clients; particularly in relationship difficulties, bereavement, jealousy, anger, panic attacks, anxiety and negative thoughts, phobias, suicidal thoughts, addictions, family concerns, post-natal depression, personality issues such as feeling sad, empty, low and isolated, depression, addictions, eating disorders and self esteem. I offer short term and long term counselling and psychotherapy.
Therapy sessions provide the time and space for you to have an honest conversation without judgement. My support will enable you to put down the mask you present in the outside world, and to be yourself, no more hiding or pretending. This will enable you to gain insight on what is happening in your life right now, how you got to here and what to do to create change in your life.
As we are currently experiencing a distressing time with COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Pandemic which most of us have not experienced in our lifetime. I am here to support you if you are struggling with the isolation and anxiety that will be arising from the enforced self-isolation. This has impacted our experiences with family members and loved ones. At this difficult time I offer a supportive and caring role.
I am warm, caring and approachable. I can offer you the time you need to reflect, take stock and get to the source of your feelings and behaviour patterns.
I look forward to hearing from you!

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.
