About me and my therapy practice

Do you find yourself:

• Avoiding people, places or activities you used to do or enjoy

• Perhaps you’re struggling to function at work or home?

• You may not even remember or know what caused this change in your life however you know you want things to change for the better.

• You are not alone, I’m here to support and help you.


I’m Therese, an integrative relational therapist. The heart of my approach is to develop a strong, non-judgemental, therapeutic relationship with you to enable your personal growth and positive change.

I use a variety of tools and evidenced based techniques that will support you to understanding yourself, the issues impacting your life today; and how you can get to living your life the way you want and deserve.

I work in collaboration with you – your goals are my goals - we will be on this journey together.


Practice description

As every client is different, to ensure you receive the most appropriate, cost effective and ethical therapeutic treatment I can offer. I’ll undertake an assessment with you to get a baseline measure of where you are now, to determine and discuss therapy options with you.

If your assessment suggests you have PTSD or complex PTSD, I will use trauma-focused therapy that meets NICE* guidelines for working with trauma.  Therapy will include psychoeducation about reactions to trauma; strategies to manage arousal and flashbacks; safety planning; help to overcome avoidance and re-establishing adaptive functioning for your work and social life. With trauma therapy the number of sessions will be determined by your personal circumstances and the severity of your symptoms.

I offer short and long-term therapy for adults and young people either online by telephone, Zoom, WhatsApp or face-to-face in Richmond, Twickenham, Kew, Kingston and surrounding areas.

I offer a free 15 minute telephone consultation

Session duration: individual 50 minutes (£80)

My first session

The free 15 minute telephone consultation session is an opportunity for you to:
  • give an overview of your situation
  • how I can help you 
  • determine if you want to work with me; if yes, then we will schedule your first session.
At our first session together we will discuss how we will work together.  I will take a full assessment of your situation and the difficulties you are experiencing by listening to your story.  This will give us both a baseline measure of where you are now so we can discuss your therapy approach together.  


I will also go through the working alliance/contract with you to cover confidentiality, boundaries, how your data will be stored, cancellation charges and answer any questions you may have.
