So you may have tried managing by yourself or talking to friend but....


Whilst Self Help is where most people start , it doesn't address what subtley stops us from making change in our lives. This is where Therapy can help. Life as we currently live it may be holding us back, but we cannot see where the blocks are. We are limited to what we can achieve on our own , Counselling and Psychotherapy places therapeutic relationship at the centre of change.


Other issues that I can help with....

  • Experiencing Panic
  • Life losing it's sense of purpose
  • Lonely and isolated
  • Generally unhappy
  • Feeling overwhelmed
  • Stressed at work or fear redundancy or unemployment
  • Suffering from grief or loss
  • Looking for more fulfilment in life
  • Coping with change
  • Wanting to come to terms with painful experiences from the past

Most people who experience counselling and therapy find it beneficial. There is a unique benefit in talking to someone independent to you.




Emotions and feelings get frozen and in a sense "locked in a box" - we dare not open the box and may use all sorts of damaging coping mechanisms. We may resort to addictions, self soothers, alcohol, smoking, relationships may flounder or we simply do not understand what is happening to us, hence we may get angry and frustrated.

Is therapy for you?

We begin with an initial assessment to see if you feel counselling is for you.

This session is a mutual fact find and is a good way of getting a feel of how counselling and therapy works. It allows you to meet me and see if you wish to continue the work


About Me
I am an Accredited BACP member with 14 years experience in Counselling from individuals to small groups and also in commerce and sport. I studied Psychology as an undergradute , Counselling and Psychotherapy Post Graduate and also taught Psychology in Education.

When choosing a therapist it is the client /counsellor relationship which is the most important therapeutic factor to consider. Shorter term work may also be worth considering.

I am based in a therapy centre opposite Golders Green Tube Station
