I am a Humanistic Integrative Counsellor, which means that I was trained to work across a wide range of different therapeutic approaches (Person Centred, Psychodynamic, Gestalt, and Transactional Analysis). The Integrative Approach allows me to adopt the most appropriate counselling approach for each individual client, depending on the client and depending on the issue/s he or she may present.
I started my private practice in the City of London, (2005 - 2011) and I have been working in North London since 2012. I have over 7 years' experience of working as a Counsellor in a Mental Health Resource Centre. My specialist areas are working with mental health issues - including generalised anxiety, panic attacks, low self-esteem, low-confidence and depression. I also have a special interest in working with abuse (emotional & physical), addiction, relationship issues and bereavement and loss
With a lengthy background of working in Human Resources in large professional organisations, I also work as an executive coach and mentor on work related issues, including maximising performance, stress management, bullying, redundancy, conflict resolution and mediation. Please see my website www.reachtherapy.co.uk for further information.
My consulting room is in Islington (N1) North London.
