About me and my therapy practice

My way of working is Integrative, and this means drawing upon a broad range of psychotherapy orientations and therapeutic ways of working. Sometimes this involves using creativity or dream work, to work with deep unconscious processes; other times Psychodynamic, or relational approaches might be more fitting.

My particular training was from a Humanistic, Transpersonal perspective which encourages the growth of a clients authentic Self at a very deep and spiritual level.

To say more about myself, I trained as a Psychotherapist at the Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy Education (CCPE). Qualifying in 2011 and completing my Masters in 2012. Since then I have also completed an Advanced training in Psychotherapy in 2016, clinical training in EMDR and a post graduate diploma in Transpersonal Dream work. I worked in local authority organisations across London such as The Kingston Women’s Center and NHS hospitals & mental health departments, as well as the private sector, before going in to private practice in 2009.

Professionally I am also a Yoga and Meditation teacher, I teach yoga in a trauma informed way. I also I teach yoga workshops and courses on meditation practice for beginners.

Practice description

I provide both short- and long-term therapy to adult individuals in East Twickenham, Teddington and the surrounding areas of Richmond & West London. I also offer counselling online, using Zoom.

We all experience times of difficulty in our lives, when events or relationships feel overwhelming, or we can feel a loss of direction or purpose. Talking to a trained professional helps us make sense of those challenging times and offers a way through them, moving towards a better understanding of ourselves and our feelings.

I work with people from all walks of life and backgrounds, coming to me with a diverse range of problems. As a fully-qualified Psychotherapist & Counsellor I am a member of the British Association of Counselling Psychotherapy, and Accredited by the UKCP. I abide by their code of ethics. 

Life brings many challenges, and it is understandable that at times we might look for support in facing them. As a counsellor my role is to provide space and guidance to help you on your journey of self-discovery; to enable you to examine your life and make new, meaningful choices within it.

My style of working is called Integrative. This involves utlising many different styles of practice, to work in a way that is built around your specific needs. The work is client centered- which means my job is to accompany you on your journey – offering guidance from a psychological perspective- towards what the founder of person-centered counselling, Carl Rogers, called ‘self-actualisation’. Person-centered work is focused on empathy, a non-judgemental approach and providing emotional support; everyone has a built-in motivation to reach for their full potential, but sometimes need a bit of support to get there!

My first session

Therapy offers a chance to reflect on the difficulties or problems you are experiencing in a safe and confidential environment, with someone from outside your day-to-day life. Together we can explore your situation in a way that leads to fresh perspectives – and perhaps a new understanding of yourself. Counselling isn’t about giving you solutions or advice, but empowering you to make your own changes.

During an initial consultation i will take your case history, determine your goals for therapy, and assess if we can work together.
