Is my approach right for you?


Finding a therapist who is relationally a good fit is very important. Consider the following to help you decide if I am the right therapist for you at this point in your life.

Probably, if you…

  • need a safe space where you can explore your past, your present, and your future.

  • are seeking open-ended therapy where you decide when it is the right time to end.

  • want to explore your interpersonal relationships in depth.

  • are up for exploring deep-rooted issues that might stem from your childhood

  • are curious about how you operate and what makes you “

Possibly not, if you…

  • want a structured, solution-focussed approach.

  • are looking for someone to give you “homework”.

  • prefer coping strategies as opposed to dealing with the root of the problem.

  • are seeking short-term therapy (6-12 sessions).

  • are not interested in thinking about yourself as a whole and prefer to focus on a set of symptoms.

I provide integrative psychotherapy in Twickenham to help people tackle their problems and move forwards in life. My aim is to establish a safe and supportive environment for my clients so they feel comfortable embarking on a journey with me to overcome their struggles with my ongoing support. I can help individuals to deal with conditions such as anxiety, depression, stress, low mood and self-esteem as well as assist them to deal with transitional periods such as job loss, bereavement, illness diagnoses or loss of a spouse.

As a trained psychotherapist offering integrative psychotherapy, counselling and CBT in Twickenham, I take a carefully tailored approach to each and every client, accurately assessing their individual needs so we can work together to create a treatment plan to effectively deal with your concerns.

The treatments involve exploring how your past experiences and relationships are influencing your way of being in life as well as your choices, values, beliefs, relationships with others in the present. By assessing thought patterns and behaviours throughout your life, we can come to an understanding as to how these may be impacting you and how we can reframe the thoughts and actions using coping mechanisms.

My therapeutic aim in our work together is to appropriately and sensitively revisit and process earlier traumas and life experiences which can then lead to more creative ways of living your life and to the resolution of any unhelpful or dysfunctional patterns. In turn, this will allow you to find more effective ways to manage the inevitable stress and pain that life brings.

Whether through integrative psychotherapy, counselling, or CBT in Twickenham, your desired outcomes are central to the therapy. The journey is different for everyone dependent on what is stopping individuals from achieving their goals and their understanding of their experiences on both a conscious and unconscious level. Reducing any maladaptive strategies and employing better ones, you will gain a greater control of your life ultimately leading to the alleviation of symptoms, the development of a more coherent sense of self, and the removal of internal barriers to leading the life that you want.
