Private counselling in West London W5
My own counselling experience:
The reason I entered this profession is because of my own challenging life experiences. I remember very well being a client for the first time. I didn't know what to expect. I found that to have the support and space to talk to someone outside of my family and friends was a relief. I wasn't being offered well-meaning advice but was being heard. It made a real difference to my emotional well-being and was life-changing.
I have had several careers over the last 30 years. They range from working in the corporate world of business; owning my own businesses to working creatively within the TV & Film world. I live in Ealing with my partner and our child.
My therapeutic model:
I am a person-centred therapist, which means that I believe that we all have the capacity and the wisdom to resolve our difficulties and to improve our lives. Unfortunately this ability to know what is right for us can become blocked when we are in distress and have negative life experiences - particularly those that affect our sense of value or around feelings of shame.
I hold a BA (Hons) degree in Person-Centred Counselling from the University of Middlesex and a Diploma in Person-Centred Counselling from the Metanoia Institute in London.
I am a fully qualified counsellor and registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (Registered Member MBACP) and I adhere to the BACP Ethical Framework for Good Practice and am professionally supervised. Please have a look at www.bacp.co.uk for more information.
Outside of my private practice, I have experience of seeing clients from many different cultural and social backgrounds at Metanoia Counselling and Psychotherapy Services (MCPS), The Counselling Partnership, Place2Be and Ealing Abbey Counselling Services (EACS). These are all not-for profit organisations providing low-cost counselling within the community.
