I am an experienced counsellor, psychodynamic psychotherapist and a psychoanalytic psychotherapist. I work in a private practice in Earls Court, SW5. Here I can offer clients a secure, confidential and open space in which we can think together about the difficulties you might be experiencing with a view to bringing some inner peace and creating a stronger sense of self moving forward. Whatever the problem may be I am here to help.
Do you worry about talking to your friends and or family and are looking for someone who can give you a safe, containing, objective and non-judgmental place to talk?
Are you feeling lost, depressed or frustrated? Are you finding life a struggle at the moment and can’t seem to find an answer to why. Have you lost interest in the people around you or are you simply feeling a little dejected and can’t work out why. This could be that you are suffering from a bout of depression, or stuck in a negative way of thinking, or simply unable to see your way forward.
I work from a Psychodynamic and Psychoanalytic perspective. Often, problems in the present may be related to experiences earlier in our lives. Understanding this can help you clarify your feelings and decide the best way forward. My training allows me to work with clients on a deeper level which in turn can mean we meet more than once a week and up to three times a week.
To arrange an initial consultation or to discuss any questions or concerns you may have, please contact me by telephone on 07909 842484 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org . All enquiries are strictly confidential.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme

Areas of counselling I deal with
I charge £60 for an initial consultation, which will last up to an hour.
If you decide to go forward, we will agree a realistic and achievable session fee (between £65-£80). We will take into account frequency of sessions, time of day and income.
Payment is by BACS, cash or PayPal (I do not have credit card facilities).
I currently work out of two practices:
My Earls Court practice is on Earls Court Road, 3 minutes walk from Earls Court and 5 minutes from West Brompton Tube Station as well as being accessible by local buses. There is Pay and Display Parking available. It is in Kensington and Chelsea Borough.
My Barnes practice is a 10 minute walk from either Barnes or Barnes Bridge Station. Hammersmith is a short bus ride away with 4 different buses that come to the end of the road. There is limited meter parking available at the end of the road as well as on Church Road itself. On Ferry Road there is Free parking but not between the hours of 10am to 12pm.
