BACP Accredited Psychodynamic Counsellor/Psychotherapist & Hypnotherapist.
Most people experience emotional problems at some stage in life, these are often resolved without outside help. However, sometimes these problems persist, perhaps because current issues like bereavement or trauma have stirred up feelings from the past of which the person is not consciously aware. Emotional problems may be experienced in a number of ways i.e. depression, anger, anxiety, or in relationship issues. Sometimes we need additional help in trying to understand and manage our problems.
I am a psychodynamic counsellor and psychotherapist with 15 years' experience. I have a private practice in Enfield, North London (close to Enfield Town). I have also worked as a counsellor and assessment counsellor at the Enfield Counselling Centre. Where it would be appropriate, I am also able to offer CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy), particularly helpful with OCD, phobias and panic attacks.
I am also a fully qualified Clinical Hypnotherapist, if you have an interest in being hypnotised to help solve your problem we can discuss whether this might be the best option for you.
I can offer long or short term work in a safe, supportive, environment where you can explore whatever is troubling you. Once assessment has been completed, I will discuss with you a recommendation of approach. This may be brief therapy of a fixed number of sessions, or longer term individual therapy for deep-seated and long standing difficulties.
I am BACP Accredited and I work to their guidelines of Good Practice and Code of Ethics.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
