A few words about myself
I am a Systemic and Family Psychotherapist and your well-being is my ultimate concern. Since 2012, I have provided individuals, couples and families in the Kingston and Richmond areas with a wide range of psychological and counseling services to suit their needs. Whether you’re an individual, a couple or a family looking for help - my therapy sessions are designed to strengthen your confidence, and assist you in the healing process.
My seventeen years in the National Health Service and in private practice includes working with children, families and other involved people such as carers, doctors, teachers and family friends. I have a special interest in women's issues, such as fertility, gender roles and parenting. I offer a safe and confidential environment within the private rooms at Asana Health, in which individuals, couples or families can explore and think about their relationships, difficulties and issues they experience. I work alongside clients in a way that is most helpful to them.
