About me and my therapy practice


I understand that beginning therapy can be anxiety provoking for people. I am a warm, compassionate and gentle practitioner. Colleagues and clients confirm that I achieve these standards in my approach to therapy. 

 I have been working for an N.H.S. Neuro-Developmental Service for  15 years and now work privately having commenced my practise in psychotherapy and counselling in 1993. I work with individuals and offer consultancy and training. Please see my website for more details. I work with organisations through their Employment Assistance Programmes (E.A.P.) as well as television companies who provide counselling in their aftercare packages. 

I  can work effectively with People who have  Autism and Asperger’s Syndrome using humanistic and applied cognitive behavioural procedures and have been pro-active in expanding counselling services for people through my work in the NHS and also within my own private practise.

 I recommend an initial Therapy Assessment in order to discuss the main issues of concern. I will then be able to recommend a direction in which to work. Assessment and Therapy sessions are usually held for 60 to 90 minutes. 

 My Therapy Clinic is held in Twickenham/Hounslow border. There is free off road parking immediately outside the venue. The 281 bus stop is a 3 minute walk and Hounslow mainline station is a 5 minute walk. 

 I can offer reduced rates for students and people who receive welfare benefits.
