We are four therapists who have come together to set up a counselling service offering a range of specialist areas from Bereavement to Art Therapy. We all offer both long-term (open-ended) and short term (6-12 sessions) therapy and we all use an Integrative approach, which means that we draw from a range of approaches to provide the right support for you.
Appointments are available throughout the week from 7am to 8pm at a number of locations across London, including WC1X, NW6, SW17, SE23 and SE24.
Please contact directly the therapist you are interested in talking to. The first step is to arrange a preliminary session to give us a little background about why you would like to come for therapy. If, after that, you decide that you would like to continue and we feel that we can offer you the support you desire then a set time is agreed to meet each week for either short-term or open-ended therapy.
I like to use the metaphor of a car. Its not working and we can't figure out why until we take a look under the bonnet at the engine.
I have worked with a range of clients from the age of six, through to well past their sixties and beyond. I currently see clients within the mental health charity MIND in Buckinghamshire, a low cost therapy service in North West London, and children and adolescents through an NHS service aimed specifically for that age group. Whichever client I see and what ever their age group and issue is, my integrative training has equipped me to select an approach that will be the best fit for the client. Within my work, I take the time to listen and really understand what my clients are experiencing. My training has included talking therapies and art therapy. I discuss working art materials only once I feel it's appropriate and appealing for my clients, it’s a way to help things along and see things in a different way.
I have a strong belief in staying in touch with the latest theories, research and teachings of the profession and am passionate about enhancing my own professional development through continuing with further training within the field. As a member of the BACP I abide by their code of ethics.

I am an integrative counsellor and I draw from a number of different theoretical approaches to influence my work. This allows me to tailor my approach to each individual I see. It is my aim to create a warm and respectful space where you feel safe enough to explore and come to terms with what is concerning you. I have experience working in a range of fields including: relationship issues, childhood sexual abuse, anxiety, stress, depression, bipolar disorder, dissociation and self esteem issues.
Aside from my private practice I work as an honorary psychotherapist for Newham NHS Trust and, for 3 years previous, I was a senior counsellor and assessor for Carers UK. I have considerable experience of working with a broad range of people of different ages and backgrounds and with a variety of mental health concerns. If you are interested in coming for counselling please get in touch for an initial meeting to see if you'd like to work with me and to see if my expertise fits with your needs.

Whatever you want to focus on right now - I provide a safe, confidential arena where we can work together to explore it and deepen your understanding of why you find yourself where you are and, if you want to change it, work towards something different. I received my training in counselling at the Minster Centre in London. I am an integrative therapist, drawing on a range of approaches to suit each individual client. As well as my private practice I work in the Student Counselling Service at Royal Holloway, University of London. Previously I worked in an NHS psychotherapy clinic with clients suffering from issues such as depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship issues, and OCD, and as a bereavement counsellor at the Camden, City, Islington and Westminster Bereavement Service. I have also worked with Childline and with Mind in Camden.
I can offer integrative psychotherapy and psychodynamic therapy. I can help with relationships and intimacy, stress and anxiety, depression, self-esteem and self-image issues, life transitions, loss and bereavement, abuse, trauma, family matters, work and health-related concerns and personal identity issues. I have a particular interest in offering therapeutic support regarding fertility, pregnancy and birth and postnatal concerns.
I am a Registered Member of UKCP and the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP) and work in accordance with its Ethical Framework.
