About me and my therapy practice

I am a Humanistic practitioner which essentially means I believe you already have the answers within you. 

Humanistic therapy is fundamentally optimistic, and the approach is non-judgemental and empathic encouraging you to recognise your inner resources and strengths. 

Whatever it is that is troubling you, talking through your issues every week can help you come to terms with current challenges enabling you to lead a happier, healthier and more fulfilling life.

As a fully qualified counsellor I support clients with a wide range of issues in my private practice in North Kensington as well as in two charitable settings in Ealing and Notting Hill where I work with GP referrals. 

I hold a particular interested in the trauma of early loss and what we deny or repress and how this impacts our ability to live as fully as we might, but whatever your story, I can promise to listen without judgement and offer you a safe and confidential space to be heard.

Practice description

During this difficult time I am offering online therapy via Skype, Zoom and FaceTime, as well as telephone consultations but I hope to be able to offer face to face sessions very soon. 

My practice in North Kensington is located a few minutes’ walk from Latimer Rd Tube with PayByPhone parking opposite and in the surrounding streets. 

My first session

Sessions last for fifty minutes and our initial session is a chance for you to describe the issues that are troubling or distressing you and for you to discuss your expectations of counselling with me.

If we both agree to begin therapy then further sessions will be arranged typically at the same day and time each week. Whatever we discuss will be in total confidence and treated with respect.

If you would like to ask any questions before requesting an initial session then please do give me a call and you can get a feel for if I am the right person to talk to right now.
