About me and my therapy practice

I am a qualified and experienced Integrative Counsellor with a particular interest in Trauma and Psychosomatic Illness and the impact of both on our psychological and physical health. I use a blend of theories incorporating Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) where necessary. I have many years of experience supporting clients facing a broad range of issues from emotional and behavioural, adoption, eating disorders, bereavement and loss, cancer support, sexual identity, depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, abuse (physical, emotional and sexual) and addictions.

Alongside working in private practice, I am a School based and Lead Delivery Counsellor for local services in a Targeted Early Intervention and Prevention Team in West London supporting adolescents to Adults.

Practice description

You've probably found yourself thinking about counselling for many reasons. Talking to a professional can be a useful way to help you to gain a better understanding of your life and where you are. Whether you need support talking about worries or help with understanding patterns of unhelpful behaviours, counselling can help you better understand the root of difficult emotions, thoughts and feelings. Taking control of our needs and making changes to our lives can be a challenging hurdle but, it can also be immensely empowering and rewarding. The counselling relationship is formed around respect and trust for the client's growth and change and I hope to support you on this journey.
