When life gets difficult, it can be hard to know where to turn.
Psychotherapy can give you the space to make sense of things and move forward, whether you are trying to cope with day-to-day stresses, a more specific mental health issue or a recent life event, . Personal change is possible at any time of life, and psychotherapy is one of the ways of achieving this.
I am an experienced relational psychotherapist offering a friendly, confidential and trustworthy service. My practice is close to Ealing Broadway station and easily accessible from most areas of West London, including West Ealing, Hanwell, Acton, Greenford, Shepherds Bush, Brentford and Chiswick.
I have worked successfully with adults and young people seeking help for a wide 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
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).
My aim is to provide a supportive and non-judgemental space where you feel free to talk about your concerns.
For example, if you have had a recent bereavement, separation or redundancy, you may need time and space to adjust and process what has happened. Or you may be wondering about the impact of something which happened to you many years ago but has never really been talked about. Psychotherapy offers a way to think about these things in a neutral, safe environment.
Psychotherapy can also greatly increase self-awareness and self-understanding. For example, through our conversations, you may notice a particular way of thinking or behaving is getting in the way of making good relationships with other people. Sometimes these powerful insights can lead to rapid change, and a happier and more productive life.
Appointments are available throughout the week and on Saturday morning. For my availability, please get in touch
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, and am also carrying 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 subsequently managed a training company.
My integrative approach incorporates thinking from humanistic and developmental psychology, relational psychotherapy, neurobiology, family systems and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT).
