About me and my therapy practice

I am a registered MBACP counsellor and an advanced Gestalt psychotherapy trainee .

I work with current situations and pay close attention to empathic attunement and process, together we can explore fixed patterns of behaviour and experiment with what might be habitual ways of relating. The phenomenon of being 'stuck' is a reality for many, so the kind of therapy I offer speaks to a willingness of committing to the process. An openness and the will to work on entrenched difficulties is valuable if adjustment and change is to be realised. 

Diversity, equality and inclusion are key parts of a greater whole in society that hold immense importance to how I work with clients. My central aim is to create a safe and supportive environment in which people from all backgrounds can bring what they bring and feel welcome. I work with adults of all ages from 18+. My practice is based in the West London area and I work both online and face-to-face. We can discuss this further.  

My first session

The initial consultation will take roughly 30 minutes to complete over the phone, and I do not charge for this.

Whether online or face-to-face, all sessions will last approximately 50 minutes. Before we begin the sessions, we will agree the time and day to meet on a weekly basis. This is usually fixed and consistent. There is no binding contract to sign in terms of a commitment to ongoing therapy, however a contract of safety, confidentiality and how we might work together is important to finalise.
