About me and my therapy practice
I am a professionally qualified counsellor based in Twickenham, Greater London. I work with a wide range of people and issues. I aim to support you to feel comfortable to explore what is going on in your life, in the safety of a trusted, warm therapeutic relationship. Together we will look at how to approach day-to-day issues, explore what may have caused them, and work on creating the life you want.
I aim to offer a balance between understanding what has caused certain difficulties or ways of being - enough to gain insight, reassurance and often liberation - and looking at how you want to be in the present, here and now, in your life.
Training, qualifications & experience
I completed my professional counselling training at Metanoia Institute, a highly-respected training institute accredited by the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
I hold a diploma in Person Centred Counselling from Metanoia and a BA (Hons) degree in Person Centred Counselling from Middlesex University.
I am a registered member of BACP and a member of the Person-Centred Association.
I adhere to the BACP Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions and fulfil BACP requirements for ongoing supervision and continuing professional development.
I have worked in the NHS, for non-profits and now mainly work in private practice.
Having a space that is just for you, that is totally confidential, can be life-changing.
I offer short-term and longer open-ended one-to-one therapy for adults online and in person.
Making a first call to a therapist – whether you are new to therapy or have previous experience – can be daunting. Feel free to contact me by phone or email for an initial conversation with no commitment needed. I'm happy to answer any questions and all enquiries will be confidential.
I offer some low-cost sessions for students and those on low incomes. Please contact me and we can discuss.
My first session
The first meeting is an introductory session – there is no commitment on your part. We will explore whatever is bringing you to counselling, any questions you may have and I’ll explain how I work.
At the end of the session, you can decide if you want to continue, or you can have a think about it. If we’re going to work together, we usually agree to an initial number of sessions and then review. You might decide you want to come for just a few sessions, or you may want something longer-term. It’s completely up to you. Most people initially come to counselling every week.
