About me and my therapy practice

Counselling and psychotherapy give you a chance to talk through your feelings in a supportive, confidential environment and to gain a greater understanding of yourself and your experiences. This can pave the way towards a more fulfilling life where choices and decisions can begin to feel like opportunities rather than obstacles.I am a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist, practising in  Reading. I work within an ethical framework that ensures a secure and confidential setting for my clients. I worked as a counsellor for London Borough of Hounslow (Social Services) within the Drug and Alcohol Team between 2006 and 2009. Since then I have trained and practised as a psychodynamic psychotherapist at WPF Therapy and in private practice in London. I have been  practicing in the Reading area for the last six years. I have worked for Riverside counselling as a counsellor in Henley on Thames and now as a supervisor  in Didcot and Berinsfield.
