About me

I am an experienced integrative counsellor, offering empathetic and confidential counselling to individual clients in Stoke Newington (N16) and Kentish Town (NW5) and surrounding areas.

I work with people who are experiencing problems in their lives.  This may include depression, stress or anxiety, loneliness, relationship and family difficulties, low self-esteem, bereavement, illness and disability, anger, issues around sexuality and identity, problems related to work, or a more general sense of malaise or discontent.

Therapy can be focussed and shorter term, or address long-standing issues over a longer time-frame. I believe that it can help to talk things through with a trained person, and to have a safe space to explore what may be happening in your life. Sometimes we will look at past events to help us to understand the present.  The work is collaborative and arises out of an equal relationship between therapist and client: I do not use a couch, make diagnoses, judge you or advise you how to do things. Counselling can help you to understand your life and relationships, and draw upon your own resources to find a way through.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a Registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), and fully comply with its Ethical Framework. I hold a BACP-accredited Professional Diploma in Integrative Counselling from the Mary Ward Centre, and have undertaken further training in integrative counselling and contemporary psychotherapy at the Minster Centre. I have extensive experience of mindfulness practice, MBCT/MBSR courses and teacher training, and this informs my counselling work. My therapeutic work is supported by ongoing personal supervision and further professional learning.

In addition to my private practice, I am a counsellor at a bereavement agency. Over the years I have provided counselling/psychotherapy in two community-based counselling agencies, in a longer-term NHS psychotherapy service, and in short-term, focussed counselling services for staff and students in a London university.

I have many years of experience of working closely with people in difficult or distressing situations. Before re-training as a counsellor, I had a long career as a barrister in private practice in London.

I was inspired to become a counsellor by my own very positive experience of being a client in long-term therapy, which made lasting changes to how I saw and felt about my life.
