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 Isleworth and Twickenham. I am available for daytime & evening sessions during the week and morning sessions on a weekend.

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.
BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
Accredited register membership
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
