I can offer you a space to talk and to explore what may be causing you distress. I have been trained to listen deeply and reflect any patterns that may be occurring, with an aim to moving towards a happier life.
I am a qualified and experienced therapeutic counsellor, based in North London. As well as seeing private clients, I work as part of counselling teams in London specialising in bereavement and addiction, and have experience working with a large range of issues. I am also currently involved with a project working with chemsex and party drugs in the LGBT community.
My background before training as therapist was involved in music, and I feel that this has given a real insight into life that I can use in my work. I have seen inside both the positive and negative sides and the effect it can have on people, especially around the pressures, expectations and the effects on self worth.
I offer a straight forward, open approach to counselling and a place to talk without fear of judgement. My style of counselling is integrative which, put simply, means that I believe that each person I see is an individual with individual needs and I have learned a range of skills and styles that I can use. I will work with you to find the best route towards change. I aim to make you feel as comfortable as possible in the counselling process so as well as talking I offer guided meditation, relaxation techniques and creative therapy.
I have spoken at international conferences around chemsex, drug use, self-worth and addiction. I also take training around chemsex, party drugs and LGBT aware therapy. I have also been published in Therapy Today (October 2016)
I am a registered member of the BACP and certified by CPCAB.
What To Expect
Sometimes in life things can get on top of us or we feel unable to cope with them on our own. If you feel that counselling could benefit you then it starts by getting in touch. Once you contact me through the details listed on this page and we can arrange an initial 50 minute consultation. During this we can get to know each other as well as discussing any expectations or fears you may have around the counselling process and what you would like to gain from it. If you decide that you would like to go ahead with counselling then we will establish a contract including time, confidentiality, boundaries, and how many sessions we might aim for.
Counselling sessions will be held at a set time each week and, so that you can talk openly with me, our work will be confidential. Our relationship will involve a lot of input from you and it is my job to help you gain a better understanding of what is causing you difficulties. Once we have understanding then we are making the first steps towards change.
Often in big cities like London we don’t get time to ourselves to really explore and understand what is going on for us, counselling can give you that opportunity.
I work from two locations in London, one in Soho and one in Kings Cross, and can offer morning, afternoon and evening sessions.
