How I work
I work on the understanding that our early experiences shape our personality and our way of relating. A lack of fulfilling relationships may result in a number of psychological issues, including mood instability, social anxiety, addiction and higher susceptibility to trauma. The work in therapy, is to revisit and heal our unmet relational needs through a corrective relational experience.
Using Relational Transactional Analysis, my approach is integrative, drawing on both Psychoanalytic and Humanistic principals. I hold a Masters degree in TA Psychotherapy and am a Certified Transactional Analyst (CTA).
I am a member of the UK Council for Psychotherapy, (UKCP), and The European Association of Transactional Analysis, (EATA).
I am an experienced clinical practitioner having worked at Metanoia Counselling and Psychotherapy Service (MCPS) in Ealing (London Borough of Ealing), Phoenix Counselling & Psychotherapy Service in Feltham (London Borough of Hounslow) and NHS Putneymead Medical Counselling Service in Putney (London Borough of Wandsworth).
I have a private practice based in Chiswick, easily accessible to the local areas of Acton, Brentford, Kew, Ealing, Hammersmith and Richmond.
