About me and my therapy practice

My approach is flexible and nurturing, helping you find choices in your life again and a sense of empowerment. Whether you want to work mindfully with a particular issue short term over 8-10 counselling sessions or take your time to explore something much deeper, it is about making that leap of faith and journeying into self. It’s the start of a great personal adventure of discovery, an investment in yourself. My work is about creating the right environment for you, whether you are a man or woman, to feel safe and confident to unpick the complex issues that underpin your current dilemma. This is about working with you rather than forcing you into a particular theory. As an integrative therapist I’ve trained in the different approaches but I will call on these, such as CBT, Gestalt, or Mindfulness, as and when needed. I have an interest in Jungian theory and working with dreams, and have an Advanced Certificate in Dream Interpretation I have private practices in West London, Ealing (including areas around Chiswick, Richmond and Hammersmith) & Wimpole Street, W.1.
