About me and my therapy practice

I am a mature practitioner, well travelled and familiar with various cultures and lifestyles. I bring into my work my wealth of experiences and my deep belief in a person's ability to change.

In counselling and psychotherapy we focus on your mental processes in depth. We identify patterns and belief systems. We endeavour to recognise internal messages you carry - conscious or unconscious. You become aware of yourself, what motivates you and how you function. This will enable you to move forward and make changes. 

Main issues covered:  Behavioural difficulties; Relationships and Relational difficulties; Anxiety and Depression; Lack of direction; Emotional Eating; Addictions; Life Changes - among others. 

I am a Senior Accredited member of the BACP and adhere to its code of ethics and practice. .

2003: Master of Arts in Counselling and Psychotherapy. University of East London

2000: Post Graduate Diploma in Mental Health/Addictions Counselling. King’s College London

1992: Certificated Counsellor Training in Client Centred and Existential Counselling. City University

Other relevant qualifications

2005: Certificate in Life Coaching. National Awarding Body (NCFE). Newcastle College

Practice description

I offer you a safe and trusting environment, where you can explore your life and your aspirations and tackle the obstacle that may affect your progress.  I can help you make sense of why things are the way they are and to acquire tools for change. Together we can search for, find and enhance your potential and your strength.  

When you reach out and look for a therapist, you need a space to explain your issues in confidence. You will have questions you might want to ask me, about the way I work and how the process takes place. 

I work with adults – individuals, couples and groups. For individual and couple work we will have weekly sessions of 50 minutes to one hour, though sometime we may decide to meet more frequently or have longer sessions – depending on the needs arising. The sessions are led by the issues you bring in, which we explore in a non-judgemental way. I adhere to a strict confidentiality code, set by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

I work face to face and online. My practice is in West London. 

My first session

In our first session we will look at your reasons for coming to see me and at your expectations. I will ask you to outline your life story in brief. This will give me some more understanding of who you are. You will be able to ask me questions you have about the therapy or how I work.  If we decide to work together, we will discuss and agree on how to proceed.
