About me



Welcome to my private practice for Crouch End N8 (Hornsey) based counselling.

I am a fully qualified integrative counsellor and therapist, and a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) I run a private professional and confidential counselling practice for the Crouch End N8 areas of North London.

As a registered member of the BACP I fully comply with the ethical guidelines of that association. I offer counselling / psychotherapy on a short or long term basis depending on the needs of the client.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a certificate, diploma and advanced diploma in humanistic integrative counselling. I was inspired to become a counsellor by my interests in creativity, art, culture, existential philosophy and Zen. This has had a major influence on my approach to therapy, derived from exploring the nature of mind through mindfulness, in the here and now, the true self, and presence as an experience in the relational environment that creates who we are in each moment.

I describe my way of working as person-centred existential-phenomenological. I believe that you are your best therapist, and that when we meet a new therapy is created. I see my role in the therapeutic relationship as a kind of guide, that can support you in finding an increased awareness of your self, and the choices you make, to live a more meaningful, and fulfilled life.

I have experience of working with a wide range of issues, in a variety of settings including schools in Enfield and Haringey, a drug and alcohol project in Westminster, and an arts university in South East London.
