About me

About me

I am a professionally trained and qualified Person-Centred therapist, with consulting rooms in the Harrow, Watford and Muswell Hill areas.  I have a broad experience of counselling clients from a wide range of backgrounds and with diverse needs.  I am Accredited and registered with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and adhere to their ethical framework.

I would like to support you to face any difficulties you may be experiencing.  I offer a holistic, non-judgmental approach, where attention is given to the whole person, with compassion and acceptance.  If you wish to explore the spiritual side of life, I am able to draw on a well-established and acknowledged integrative Christian model of counselling.  Whatever you choose, I will respect and encourage your autonomy within the therapeutic process at all times.

How could Counselling/Psychotherapy help me?

Counselling can be a safe place to explore and unravel issues concerning you in a way that makes sense to you personally.  This can help you to overcome long-standing stumbling blocks and to achieve desired changes in your life and relationships.  The therapeutic relationship is at the heart of my approach and you will be encouraged and supported throughout the process.  We will work together at each stage, with you at the helm, to decide how best to progress.

What should I expect to happen when we first meet up?

Our first meeting will provide the opportunity for me to get to know you, to learn more about your concerns, and for us to discuss what you hope to achieve in your personal counselling.

How long with therapy last?

I offer both time limited counselling for a set number of sessions (to focus perhaps on a particular issue (or two) and longer-term psychotherapy (to explore and work through deeper issues over time), where the work would be more open-ended.

Together, we can review the arrangement every 6 weeks or so to see where you feel you may be at any point in the therapy, but how long the therapy lasts will be entirely a personal choice.

We will meet up ideally on a weekly basis (particularly in the early stages of meeting), although fortnightly session can be agreed later on where appropriate or if specifically required.  Counselling sessions typically last for 50 minutes, although longer sessions can be arranged if preferred.

How can I make an appointment?
