About me

I am a qualified and registered psychotherapist with the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) which is a national association of psychotherapy organisations and individual practitioners. I am a Certified Transactional Analyst (CTA) and a member of the European Association of Transactional Analysis (EATA) and the International Association for Relational Transactional Analysis (IARTA).

I provide confidential short and long-term counselling and psychotherapy to adults on a one-to-one basis and I co-facilitate personal development groups. I also work with couples.

My private practice is located in central Richmond within easy reach of Chiswick, Kew, Twickenham and Kingston.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a MSc in Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy from Middlesex University and a postgraduate diploma in Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy from the Metanoia Institute. In 2005, I also completed two years of undergraduate training in Person-Centred Counselling at the Metanoia Institute. These training courses combined cognitive, humanistic and psychodynamic models of working.

I have been practising as a counsellor and psychotherapist since 2004 in various settings, where I gained invaluable experience working with people with a variety of concerns such as depression, anxiety, feelings of isolation, relationship difficulties, work difficulties, low self-esteem, loss and trauma.

In addition to the above, I have also trained and worked as a clinical assessor; completed a mental health familiarisation placement within an Eating Disorders Unit on the NHS; and gained experiences working within a Centre for Fertility and Genetics in the private sector where I developed a capacity to meet the needs of people with various fertility concerns.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
