About me

It is not unusual to reach a point where you experience difficulty in understanding and making sense of life and relationships. Most of the time, the help of family or friends will be enough to get you through. Sometimes, however, the difficulties persist, leaving you feeling anxious, depressed, angry or frustrated and questioning your ability or your confidence to cope. If you are at this stage, then counselling or psychotherapy may be the best way forward.

I am a BACP accredited psychotherapist and counsellor offering an emotionally safe and confidential therapeutic space for you to talk about thoughts, feelings or experiences you may not have felt able to explore. I use an integrative approach which means my training helps me draw on a range of theories and research to provide a supportive and collaborative therapy adapted to suit your needs.

Working together we can untangle some of the threads in your life to gain a clearer understanding of your feelings and experiences.This can then allow you to find a way forward.This might involve processing some significant life experiences, understanding how your past might be affecting you now or learning new strategies and techniques to help you in your everyday life.

My consulting rooms are based in the West Middlesex University Hospital campus, Isleworth and Twickenham. I am available for daytime & evening sessions during the week and morning sessions on a weekend.

BACP

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.

Accessibility

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.
