Hello and welcome

“In my early professional years I was asking the question: How can I treat or cure or change this person? Now I would phrase the question in this way: How can I provide a relationship which this person may use for his own personal growth’

Carl R Rogers

Reading this you might be finding life difficult, you may have a concern, a problem or situation that is effecting you. You may be interested in finding ways to make changes in your life. Perhaps this is a new realisation or a lifelong sense that something is not quite right. 

​Are you feeling stuck, sad, anxious, or too familiar with loneliness? 

Addressing an addiction, either your own or a loved ones? 

You may be interested in therapy as a process of self development to build your self esteem or understand an emptiness that you have been carrying.


About me:

I am an Integrative Psychotherapist, Art Psychotherapist, Couples Counsellor, Individual Counsellor and Specialist Mentor. My practice is located in the heart of Westminster London W1.

I studied at The Institute of Art in Education, London, here I gained a Masters degree in Integrative Art Psychotherapy qualifying in 2016. I embark on Continued Professional Development to stay current with trainings, expanding my personal and professional interest in the job I feel privileged to have. 

I conduct my practice under the UKCP & HCPC code of ethics guidelines. 

I have always had an innate interest in what makes us ‘us’, I am curious by nature which is a leading factor in our relationship and work. I am interested to how we relate to ourselves and others through the lens of old messages, patterns, learnings and role models from our past, healthy and not so, these which may impact relationships with ourselves and others. 

I believe we all have a need to be seen and heard, but these validations can be difficult to ask for. 

​My style is to relate with you, I am present and vocal, with empathy, working towards the goals you want to work on. 

I work from a client led perspective which means that you bring whatever you feel needs attention to the session. 

Working with your unique material, I am respectful and confidential. 

I offer remote sessions for people who find it difficult to travel due to health issues.

I am currently offering reduced rates. 

I have many years of experience working with a full range of of emotional issues which include but are not limited to:


Alcohol / Addictions

Anger Management


Childhood Adversities


Drug / Addictions

Family Breakdown







Patterns of Behaviour

Relationship Difficulties


Self Harm



Work related stress

The attempt to escape from pain is what creates more pain.’

Gabor Maté

I have experience within the NHS Mental Health Services, CNWL Trust, inpatient and community settings. Working both one to one and in groups.


Weekly sessions are 50 minutes.

Couples are 60 minutes.

I am offering a lower rate due to the current financial situation. Do contact for further information.

Integrative Art Psychotherapy

Art Psychotherapy is a gentle way of exploring the unconscious, expressing emotions using a variation of art materials offered. Experience of using the arts is not a requirement for art therapy. The only requirement is an open mind. 

Integrative Psychotherapy

 Individual one to one therapy is a space for you to come where I support you to implement various methods to help develop new attitudes towards life’s most complex matters. This is your time to focus completely on yourself and your needs. Using a wide range of psychotherapeutic schools of thought, we, together work to  understanding your needs and how to achieve them.

Group Therapy

Group work is a opportunity to develop self-awareness in and outside of relationships. This is a powerful way to learn how to function within a team. 
Using the arts as a vehicle of communication in groups, encourages the exploring and development of self with others.


In counselling sessions, we work to solve current problems and improve positive thinking and behaviour. I will help you “re-frame” your reactions and provide you with valuable tools to cope with life’s obstacles that are causing you distress.

Couples Counselling

I work with you both to support your thinking and understanding realistically and emotionally of what is happening in your relationship, with an aim to help you within the dynamics which are hindering you moving forward.


EMDR  (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) is a powerful therapy designed to help people recover from traumatic events, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, performance related anxieties, phobias, anxiety disorders.

Therapy types

I implement effective psychotherapy methods to integrate self-understanding and encourage you to adopt new attitudes and feelings towards life situations. Since opening my private practice I have provided support to a wide range of clients from small scale circumstances, to traumatic experiences - my services are personalised to suit your individual needs.

Clients' experiences

’Denise was my first experience with therapy. I was very unsure as to what to expect, yet, through the weeks of our sessions together, Denise helped me to come a long way.
Within a short space of time of our work together, she has had a massive impact on my mental wellbeing.
Denise is such a warm and kind individual, who created an environment in which I felt extremely comfortable. 
I would not hesitate to give her a call if needed in the future.

Home: Testimonials


'Denise has always been there for the emotional stumbles as I tried new ways of being out in the world.  A lot has changed for me during our sessions, my own self-acceptance and self-validation, that I did not know was missing. I honestly feel that this is because of Denise’s professional and caring expertise as a therapist.

I would recommend Denise a thousand times over and am eternally grateful that Denise was the person to go on this journey with me. I’m now 'choosing' and 'feeling', this empowers me in my life today.'
