Ealing W5 Psychotherapy & Counselling, West London Also close to Brentford & Wembley
Introduction - my Ealing practice
- Hello, my name is Mari. I have been offering psychotherapy and counselling primarily in Ealing over twelve and a half years to individuals and couples, who want to deal with their anxiety, eating disorders, depression, obsessive thoughts and compulsive behaviours, psychosexual difficulties and/or relationship issues.
I occasionally offer time-limited counselling to clients who are referred from EAPs (Employment Assistant Programmes). The counselling that I offer in this setting is tightly focused, usually limited to five or six sessions.
How psychotherapy works
- Clients’ difficulties often have long preceding history. Each person’s coping method is unique. It is often complex and entrenched, perhaps to the extent that the person cannot remember how things are related. One of the tasks of psychotherapy is to disentangle this complicated adaptation and to explore how it has been affecting that person’s life and relationships.
A meaningful shift in feelings also happens in successful psychotherapy on the long run. Most psychotherapists and counsellors probably agree that not any fixed prescriptive method can force this feelings shift to take place. Instead it often takes meandering path with clients’ dedication, together with the support and facilitation offered by the psychotherapist.
Another vital task of successful psychotherapy lies in the integration of the so-called ‘shadow’. Any psychological strength can have unwanted impact on that person’s life and relationships when used in a dysfunctional way. People can learn, among other things, to use their psychological assets creatively and appropriately through psychotherapy.
Over years as a psychotherapist and counsellor, I have seen people gain sensitive self-awareness and use this newly acquired knowledge to lead rewarding life and to build satisfactory relationships.

Overview of my qualifications and experience
- I am a psychotherapist registered with the UKCP (UK Council for Psychotherapy). My UKCP registration is based on multiple memberships with HIPC (Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapy College) and CSRP (College for Sexual and Relationship Psychotherapy). Being a full member of CSRP, I am a qualified sexual and relationship psychotherapist. I have a Master of Science degree in Integrative Psychotherapy. As a part of this degree I have a certificate for therapeutic counselling. I am a sexual and relationship therapist registered with COSRT (College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists).
In addition to my practice in Ealing, I work at a sexual clinic in King’s College Hospital as a psychosexual counsellor. There I and my colleague psychosexual counsellors offer time-limited counselling. This psychosexual counselling clinic is one of the few NHS clinics which are still remaining in London. The clinic works together with related disciplines in the hospital such as cardiology, endocrinology, gynaecology, urology as well as GPs and sexual health clinics in the catchment London boroughs.

- My counselling and psychotherapy practice is based in Ealing. My Ealing practice is within ten minutes walk from tube and train stations (Ealing Broadway, Ealing Common and North Ealing) and offers easy access to places in West London including Acton, Brentford, Chiswick, Fulham, Greenford, Harrow, Iselworth, Kew, Paddington, Reading and Wembley.
I offer sessions Monday to Friday during the day and Monday to Thursday in the evening. Once you and I agree to start counselling or psychotherapy, your sessions take place on a weekly basis at a set time on a set day. My cancellation policy requires minimum 167 hours advance notice. In other words, I need to receive your notice for non-attendance at least 167 hours before the session. If I receive your notice after this cut-off point, your session will be charged.
