About me

I am an adult, child and adolescent counsellor and have been practicing both privately and working in schools for the past 14 years.  I work from home in a confidential environment with clients on a range of issues in a person-centred and humanistic way.

Counselling can often help people through empathic and congruent conversations with their therapists to find their own way.   My Person-Centred training means that I absolutely believe that you, the client, has everything that you need to be fully functioning in the world, however sometimes we got lost and need help to find clarity.

With children and adolescents I work entirely with what they bring to the sessions and offer a safe and confidential space for them to explore what can often be complex feelings as they try to find their place in the world.  I believe that counselling can help make sense of life when children are struggling with growing up and all that this brings.  I use arts, play, talking and drama therapy with my clients - whatever they need to help them on their journey.

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained for five years at The Metanoia Institute - completing the accredited Person-Centred Diploma in 1998.  I have had additional training and workshops from the Child Centre for Mental Health which has helped me specialise in my work with children and adolescents. During this time, I worked at a half-way house for using addicts and for a local GP surgery on a voluntary basis to acquire my hours.

Since 2001 I have been working full time at a North London school as the schools in house counsellor where I have gained experience with children from 4-18 years old and dealt with a variety of issues ranging from eating disorders, self-harm, obsessive compulsive disorders and anxiety to depression, bereavement and relationship issues.  I carry out class observations and run circle times with the children to help them when it is needed.

I have also recently set up another counselling service for a school in Hampstead.

I am registered and accredited by the BACP and adhere to their Code of Ethics, in addition I am trained to Level 3/4 in Safeguarding.
