It is in your moments of decisions that your destination is shaped, Tony Robbins.
It takes strength to ask for help from someone you do not know and deciding on a therapist to work with is a daunting task. So why should you use choose me?
I am a qualified and experienced integrative counsellor and my deep belief that we are all unique shapes my work with my clients. Therapy will mould to your needs, your pace of change and your feedback on how you experience me and therapy. There is no judgement, just acceptance, honesty and authenticity.
I have developed a diverse, multi-cultural and multi-faith practice and being an Integrative practitioner allows me to use a number of therapeutic approaches to meet your needs. My aim is to be there for you, listen and help you discover your own personal ways of coping more efficiently with your presenting problems and psychological distress. I cannot tell you what to do, but I can help you look deeper at the roots of your thoughts, feelings and resulting behaviours that trouble you. Together we can explore options, strategies and interventions that could help generate change towards making your life the way you want it to be. My aim is to become redundant, with you leaving counselling in a better place than before and more able to manage in the outside world.
Having worked with clients with anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, relationship problems, grief and loss, fertility problems, co-dependency, addiction and other issues, I feel confident that I could be of help.
I have recently completed my specialisation training in Eating Disorders with the National Centre for Eating Disorders. Food is a vital part of our lives and our relationship with it often changes. Our relationship with food can be emotionally charged and it may mask events and uncomfortable feelings which we find difficult to deal with. Eating disorders can be detrimental to our physical and mental health so receiving the right help is paramount. I can help you understand your relationship with food, explore what lies beneath and what keeps you stuck, and offer you the resources to create a healthier relationship with food and yourself.

My practice is based in Uxbridge, West London. I work with adults offering one to one therapy for a few sessions or for a longer time, depending on your presenting problem, your circumstances and wishes.
You are welcomed to contact me to arrange a discounted first session (£30) to explore your issues and to mutually decide if we could work together.
