About me and my therapy practice

In these difficult and unpredictable times I am offering online or telephone sessions to assist with anyone struggling with stress, anxiety, depression or isolation. This could be one session or short/longer term.

I have over 15 years experience of working as a counsellor. I believe the therapeutic process can enable you to emerge from times of anxiety and mental stress as a stronger version of yourself. The relationship between therapist and client is an important factor in facilitating change and I offer a warm, inclusive, non-judgmental and empathetic environment.

I have spent the majority of my career working within the field of addiction, My background forms a solid foundation that enhances my work today in supporting you through your individual life experiences, from anxiety, depression to relationships, family issues and much more. 

My aim is to help clients achieve a greater level of understanding in themselves and with my support work through any difficulties they may be facing.

I am a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and I adhere to their professional framework at all times.  

Practice description

I am currently working online and by phone.  I have a counselling room in Hammersmith where I see clients face to face, if they are unable to access therapy otherwise. 

My first session

There is often a lot of anxiety around the first session, and you have already taken a huge step in getting in contact.

In our first encounter with each other, we can explore the reasons you are thinking of having therapy and there is space for you to ask any questions you may have. This  session will also give you an opportunity to decide if I am the right therapist for you at this time.
