About me and my therapy practice

In the modern world, many of us struggle to find meaning and, for issues of my very own, I sought counselling.  In sessions, my therapist challenged me and reassured me that IT WAS OKAY NOT TO FEEL OKAY.

This period of time left me inspired - inspired to change not just my life, but to also help others so they can also do the same. I have experienced the power of counselling first-hand.

Taking a step back and having a look at your own life is NOT indulgent.  If it is, then why is it? Why is it indulgent to step back, reflect and to want 'more'? 

It is through self-exploration that we gets closer to WHO we really are. It is only when we can be who we truly are that happiness prevails. I have seen it so many times, in my practice as a therapist.

During our time together, it is my job to pick up on what is missing, to challenge you and to help you get to where you wish to be. If you are hesitant to reach out, be assured that counselling is an incredibly powerful approach in an ever changing world.

Ask yourself this question: "What is stopping me?"

Practice description

I am currently working towards accreditation with the BACP and, as part of my practice, I believe in continuous professional development (CPD). This helps me to support others in their own personal development across a wide range of contexts.

At the current time, counselling is being delivered in three different ways:

  • Online via ZOOM or Skype.
  • Walk & Talk Therapy during which we explore issues in an outdoor space - some clients find it useful to talk when we are in / around nature and this is something we can organise in a socially distanced way. This option is available if you live in Postcodes TW1 and TW9.
  • Text-based therapy for those who find it difficult to talk - this is a particularly useful service for: a) those suffering from abuse and/or domestic violence who may not be able to talk freely; b) those who have a medical condition that prevents them from speaking; or c) those who struggle with a range of hearing conditions.

My first session

You can message me on this website, or via my own website, and I will arrange for a brief courtesy call to go through the issues currently impacting your life. During this call, I form an idea of how I can help and will give you an insight into the way I work.

Once we have established a way of working together, sessions will take place at the same time each week, with each session usually lasting 50 minutes. On occasion, however, you may wish to book a double sesson to explore specific issues in more depth.
