I am a qualified counsellor MBACP PG Dip.Psych. offering counselling to individuals and couples.
Currently I offer counselling sessions for individuals and couples via Skype, Zoom video as well as telephone counselling for individuals.
I work both short term and long term with clients at my practices in Ealing and Cobham. However currently I am only offering video and telephone sessions.
People approach counselling for many different reasons. Sometimes it is just to get clear about a past experience or to change a habit.
At times in life you may identify a part, or parts of life, where you feel stuck.
I offer a compassionate non-judgmental space to help you hear yourself think things through and get clear about your own personal decisions.
The process can be empowering as a result.
I offer a space to explore and change the internal dialogue we sometimes have with ourselves from one that is negative and self critical, to one that is based on self respect.
Some areas we can work on include:
anxiety, phobias, generalised anxiety, panic attacks, depression, family issues, relationships, stress management, self esteem, burnout, workplace issues, career decisions, trauma, relational trauma, bereavement, self-awareness techniques and mindfulness, communication.
For Couples my goal is to create a space for both partners to share their thoughts in a safe, respectful and trusting environment.
The basis for a strong relationship is one of mutual love, trust and respect.
I believe that this can be achieved where there is intent to make the relationship work.
However stuck we may feel currently, with a new form of communication, there can be resolve when both partners truly want it.
We use the sessions to get your perspectives clearly heard and we will look at what gets in the way of intimacy.
I will offer techniques that can help you keep your relationship close, while giving each other space for individual growth and honouring your true individual selves.

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.

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).
