About me

Welcome. I offer counselling and psychotherapy to adults experiencing a wide range of emotional, relationship and work-related difficulties. I have consulting rooms in Kentish Town and London Bridge.

There are times in many people's lives when they feel unable to cope, or 'stuck'. Sometimes they despair of ever finding a sustaining relationship, or they may feel that, however hard they try, they cannot change or even leave an unhappy one. Often problems at work can eat away at a person's self-confidence, which in turn casts a cloud on other areas of their lives. Exploring these feelings and difficulties, finding out where they really come from, is like teasing out a tangled ball of string. Using the relationship with the counsellor, you can achieve greater self-knowledge which will help you reappraise those troubled areas of your life.

I appreciate it is not easy to see a counsellor for the first time, and it is natural to feel hesitant about sharing personal information, but I can offer you the support that will enable you to try and understand your difficulties, including unresolved feelings and trauma from the past, painful conflicts in the present or worries about the future. Only when we understand ourselves can we bring about change in our lives.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
