If you find yourself browsing the internet for counselling, you may have found yourself in a muddle and in need of support. The aim of my website is, in the first instance, to provide usefulinformation that may help you to take the first step. Even in today's more enlightened times, there are still many commonly-held negative beliefs about the use of counselling and psychotherapy.
Relationships can be one of the greatest sources of joy and fulfillment in life. When we experience relationship problems, we feel great pain, disappointment, fear and loneliness. Conflict isinevitable in relationships with people we love. I believe how we view the conflict makes a big difference in our ability to work through relationship problems. I take a positive view of relationships, includingthe difficult parts.
I have been a counsellor and psychotherapist based in Ealing and serving West London for the past 25 years. Most of us experience personal difficulties and relationship problems at some stage of ourlives. Instead of hiding them or trying to manage on our own, it can be a great relief to share them with someone trained to listen in an empathic way.
After some years as a social worker working with children and families, I worked in industry. I then obtained a Master's degree in Gestalt Psychotherapy and have worked as a psychotherapist andcounsellor for over 16 years. I am registered with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy and am a Snr. Accredited Counsellor with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy. I also have a Masters in Creative Writing.
I am an experienced, approachable and fully qualified psychotherapist and counsellor working from comfortable premises in Ealing Broadway and accessible to many areas in West London. If you are facinga difficult time in your life, maybe feeling anxious or stressed and wondering if counselling or psychotherapy can help please contact me. There are many reasons why people consider the support of a counsellor or psychotherapist and the decision to seek help is not always easy to make.
I help with a range of difficulties and specialise in anxiety, loss, low self esteem and the emotional impact of cancer. Telling your story to someone who cares, is independent and does not judge, ina calm and confidential setting can lighten your burden, help you understand your life and get it back on track with a renewed sense of energy, direction and motivation.
I offer counselling and psychotherapy in a safe and confidential setting and have 13 years experience working with a broad range of issues, such as anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, workrelated difficulties, life transitions, cultural and identity issues, ill health, low self esteem and bereavement. This is by no means an exhaustive list and often the concerns which people bring to counselling do not fall into one specific category.
Trained in therapeutic counselling and Gestalt psychotherapy my approach is tailored to the unique wishes and needs of each individual. This begins with the support and non-judgemental acceptancenecessary to enable you to explore your thoughts and feelings freely. We work at your pace, perhaps to relieve the tension of unexpressed emotion, raise awareness, gain insight and develop internal support and resources to increase your strength and flexibility.
