About me and my therapy practice
Based in West London, I am a qualified counsellor and a registered member of the BACP.
My clients have included students struggling to cope with the pressures of academic life and family expectations, older clients experiencing significant life changes (through bereavement, long-term illness or job loss) wondering how to cope and what the future holds, people trying to understand and live with cancer, carers wondering how they are going to keep going, professionals coping with perfectionism, women trying to balance work, family and the cultural demands made of them.
In addition to my private practice, I am a bereavement counsellor for Bereft, an Ealing based charity providing long term therapy focused on loss and grief. I work at The Mulberry Centre, Isleworth, with clients affected by cancer and as a volunteer for The Listening Place, a suicide prevention charity.
With a post graduate teaching qualification, I have a background in education working in early years and primary schools supporting children with additional learning needs and autism.
It can be helpful to speak to someone who is not part of our lives and can offer impartial support. I aim to create a space that allows you time to think about yourself in a way that may not be possible in everyday life: that allows you to express yourself without fear of judgement and find fresh perspectives, explore how you feel emotionally, consider the problems you face and the changes you might like to make.
Counselling is something that can be explored whatever your age or stage of life. There are different types of counselling and my approach, known as Integrative, means that I am trained in several theories so I can draw on an approach or combination of approaches that best suit you.
Working with clients with different cultural and ethnic minority backgrounds I am mindful of difference and diversity, with an awareness of the impact of society on our health and wellbeing.
My first session
It is important to find a counsellor you can feel comfortable with so I always recommend an initial phone discussion so you can see how you would feel working with me. It’s an opportunity to explain the issues you wish to bring and to ask any questions. You can get in touch by email or phone to arrange a time for an initial discussion. These free initial phone discussions are about 20 minutes.
