Welcome to my profile.
I believe we are all unique and deserve to find resolutions to our presenting concerns that affect our wellbeing and relationships.
We should not feel trapped by negativity, depression and sadness and we need to find a way to work with emotions and empty feelings that you may be experiencing, including, anxiety, depression, fears, abuse (i.e. self-harm), sadness, low self-esteem, low self-worth and hurt that are affecting our persona, marital, family and friend relationships, if not explored.
Given the opportunity, I offer you a safe, comfortable and confidential space where you have time to address the concerns that are 'too heavy' to deal with on your own. In a bid to develop positive self worth, I offer you empathy and respect, as you uncover the reality of your concerns, finding a way to embracing your values and enabling self healing.
My work with children, adolescents and young adults, facilitates those who are encountering difficulties concerning family issues - growing up, self harming, low self-confidence, education, etc. I also work with parents and carers.
I currently have a private practice in Ealing, West London and work as a children's Therapist in a primary school.
As a way of introduction, I would like to meet you, for a free ½ hour ‘get to know you’ session, as you decide whether we can work together or you can extend for a full session and pay have the session fee.

My experience extends to working with men, women, children, teenagers & adolescents.
I have extensive bereavement counselling & substance & alcohol addictions training. I am a qualified person-centred therapist & use a range of modalities to enable my client(s) to process their issues.
What to expect
You are able to work at your own pace as you share your issues, that have been difficult to deal with. My clients are always in total control of a session’s content.
I invite you to a complimentary 30 minute session, where you will be welcomed into my comfortable therapy room, West London.

In our initial session, you will have the opportunity to realise whether your needs & expectations can be met in future sessions. We can then look to arrange future dates/sessions should you wish to continue.
I work in line with the BACP Ethical Framework, & work in a personable, caring & compassionate way with all clients.
Living is not just about existence but about experiencing our own values.
Finding the true significance of living, without judgement, emotional pain, anxiety & stress. Adapting, growing & believing in self.
