Why Psychotherapy and Counselling?
When life gets difficult, it can be hard to know where to turn.
Psychotherapy or counselling can give you the space to make sense of what’s happening, and decide how to move forward.
As an experienced Ealing-based psychotherapist, I offer a friendly, confidential and trustworthy service.
My psychotherapy & counselling practice is very close to Ealing Broadway station and easily accessible from most areas of West London, including Ealing, Hanwell, Acton, Greenford, Brentford, Chiswick and Shepherds Bush.
Seeking professional help can feel like a big step. If you want to find out more about the psychotherapy and counselling I offer, please get in touch and we can arrange to have a short phone conversation (in complete confidence).
I have worked successfully with people of all ages, from many different cultures and backgrounds, with a range of issues including:
depression, anxiety (including generalised anxiety disorder), anger, low self esteem, relationship difficulties, loneliness, loss of meaning, trauma and abuse, bereavement, work difficulties and life transitions, body issues, family issues and personality disorders.
What I offer in Ealing
I am professionally qualified and registered as a psychotherapist with the UKCP (United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy) and the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy).
I usually offer weekly, 50-minute sessions at a regular time each week. Both shorter-term (6-20 sessions) and longer-term therapy are available.
Appointments are available at my office near Ealing Broadway throughout the week and on Saturday morning. For my availability, please get in touch
How psychotherapy and counselling can help
By providing a neutral, safe environment, psychotherapy can greatly increase self-awareness and self-understanding.
If you have had a recent loss or major upheaval in your life, you may need time to consider how it has affected you, and how you can adjust to what's happened. Alternatively, you may simply be seeking a greater sense of peace, contentment and companionship in your life, and want to discover how you can achieve this.
Through our conversations, you may realise that some of your thoughts or underlying beliefs are preventing you taking care of yourself or making good relationships with others. Such powerful insights can provide new perspectives, offering the potential for change, and a happier, more rewarding life.
Over the past 11 years, as well as working independently in private practice, I have been a counsellor in the NHS and voluntary sector. I now work as an assessor for a counselling charity. I also carry out research exploring the impact of bereavement.
Before deciding to train as a psychotherapist I was an academic psychologist then worked for a large corporation and managed a training company.
