About me

Are you experiencing difficult feelings such as anxiety, depression, anger, stress, panic attacks, low self-esteem; sometimes finding that relationships keep falling into the same unfulfilling pattern?  Perhaps finding that intense feelings can be triggered by a seemingly insignificant event? Or maybe a feeling of just not knowing what to do for the best?

If we can understand and make sense of why we feel the way we do or why our relationships are the way they are then we can begin to lead a life where we are more comfortable with ourselves and in turn find life more fulfilling.  With over twenty years’ experience in helping people find that understanding I aim to create a safe, comfortable and secure environment where you can talk, be heard in complete confidence and feel supported. 

I usually offer once weekly 50 minute sessions though if we feel it would be helpful we can arrange twice weekly sessions.  Our interactive therapeutic relationship will be unique to you.  I aim to offer you the opportunity to understand why you feel the way you do and make sense and understanding of what may previously have felt incomprehensible. To feel better about yourself and move to a life that feels more satisfying.

Sessions are either online or face to face.  I hold face to face sessions in Islington in a purpose-built suite of therapy rooms offering a calm environment just across the road from Angel station.

Training, qualifications & experience

I'm Accredited by the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy and Registered by the British Psychoanalytic Council and am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and the Foundation for Psychotherapy and Counselling and am bound by their ethics codes.

Having completed a rigorous 5 year training I am qualified as both a counsellor and psychotherapist with wpf Therapy, one of the most prestigious therapy organisations.  For seven years I managed a charitable counselling agency in Hertfordshire.

As part of my commitment to quality and professionalism I am committed to ongoing professional and personal development and regularly attend professional seminars.

The organisation is itself made up of fourteen member organisations and BPC accredits the trainings of its member organisations. An individual who qualifies from one of these trainings is then eligible for entry into the BPC's register.
