Private Counselling & Psychotherapy Service


I provide a private Counselling and Psychotherapy service in Hanwell and Teddington during the week and offer a safe, non-judgemental and confidential space where you can express and explore whatever is going on in your life. I am experienced in working with anxiety, depression, panic attacks, bereavement and relationship issues. 

I work with adults on a one to one basis for either short term Counselling or long-term Psychotherapy depending on your needs. I also work with couples facing relationship issues and run group therapy workshops for clients who wish to be around others who may have shared similar experiences.

Talking therapy can give you space to explore and understand a deeper sense of yourself and the issues you face. The aim of the work is so that you can empower yourself towards change and your full potential.  

I am a fully qualified Counsellor and a member the BACP (British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy) and IARTA (International Association of Relational Transactional Analysis). 

Why do you want counselling?

Do you suffer from anxiety?


Anxiety is a feeling of worry, nervousness, or unease about something with an uncertain outcome that can affect all of us at some point in our lives. Anxiety manifests itself in many different ways; symptoms might include breathing rapidly, trembling or excessive crying. You may feel an impending danger, panic or doom, even weak or tired. It can be crippling and very frightening and might develop into panic attacks. 

To explore new ways of managing your symptoms, call me on 07377 470 640 to arrange an introductory session.

Do you have low self-esteem?


 If you are often sensitive to criticism and withdraw socially it’s possible you may have low self-esteem. You may also experience an excessive preoccupation with personal problems and have physical symptoms such as fatigue, insomnia and headaches. 

Counselling can help you explore in a safe and confidential space why you have low self-esteem and look at ways of understanding your confidence issues so that you can start to set appropriate boundaries. You can also consider what it would feel like to be more assertive with others and nurturing to yourself and explore how to engage with others more effectively.

Are you depressed? Feel sad?


Depression can have a major impact on daily life, negatively affecting how you feel, think and behave. Depression causes feelings of sadness and/or a loss of interest in activities and pastimes you may have once enjoyed. 

Depression is often associated with bereavement, a loss of something important like a relationship or job or associated with chronic illness. 

Counselling can offer support during difficult and stressful periods when depression takes hold.

Have you suffered a major loss or bereavement?


Losing a loved one through death or relationship breakup can be devastating, confusing and lonely. You may experience many feelings including anger, sadness and depression. You might feel you have no-one who understands how you feel; you might feel isolated or find others expect you to ‘get over it’ before you are ready. Or you may simply just want space to cry.

Bereavement counselling can offer much needed support as you navigate and come to terms with your loss.

Are you having marriage or relationship issues?


Are you getting into conflicts and arguments with a partner? Are you having difficulty communicating and not feeling heard, or feeling a loss of connection? Perhaps you need space or feel jealous and possessive of your partner? Maybe you are experiencing financial problems or a loss of sex life or incompatible sexual drives. 

Whatever relationship problems you are experiencing, couples counselling can offer an impartial space for you to explore what is going on.

Do you want to understand why you under or over eat?


Understanding why you under or over eat can be a key factor to help you change your habits. Meeting with a group of individuals whom all face similar concerns can be a good way to explore why you have developed eating issues. 

Working with a trained counsellor can also help you look at ways to change your thinking and behaviour around food.
