I am a Person-Centred counsellor and Integrative counselling Supervisor based in Edgware in Middlesex. I have practised as a counsellor since 2001 and as a supervisor since 2009.
I can offer you a warm, genuine, accepting and non-judgemental relationship. I work according to your pace and your needs and my hope is to enable you give voice to your pain and distress.
I understand that it can take a great deal of courage to make that first call.
Together we can explore what issues have bought you to counselling.
I have long experience of counselling clients on a range of issues including abuse of various types, relationship difficulties, family conflict, bereavement and loss, unemployment, depression, anxiety, low self esteem and addictions.
Both in my counselling and supervision work, I work creatively and use whichever therapeutic approaches suit you.
I have long experience of working with people of all ages,(11 years upwards) creeds, nationalities and sexual preferences.
Counselling can be shorter(6-12 sessions) or longer term according to your needs or preferences.
I practice from a purpose built therapy room in a quiet residential road. Edgware tube station is 15 minutes walk away. You can also take both the 107 or 142 bus from the station. The road also has unrestricted and free parking.
I am both BACP Accredited and Registered
I have professional liability insurance.
