Registered Counsellor MBACP

About me

I'm a qualified Integrative counsellor and member of the BACP.

I draw from many theoretical traditions such as: Person Centred, Psychodynamic, Attachment and CBT to create an individually tailored approach for you.

I work with clients on both a short and long term basis.

I offer weekly or fortnightly fifty minute sessions via Zoom, telephone or face to face in Bounds Green N22 with easy access from Bowes Park N11, Alexandra Palace N22, Muswell Hill N8 and Wood Green N22. 

There is roadside parking available and I'm located 6 min walk from Bounds Green tube and 4 mins from Bowes Park overground

There is no ‘upfront’ commitment. After the initial call, we’ll have an assessment session  (see fees), where we’ll discuss confidentiality, goals and expectations and whether we’re a good fit. Only then will I invite you to commit to a contract if you wish. We will also have regular review sessions where progress and goals can be discussed. 

Training, qualifications & experience

Since qualifying I've set up in private practice.

For the past two years I've counselled In addition to my private practice, I’ve counselled at the Nightingale Cancer Support Centre in Enfield as a volunteer counsellor. 

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Further information

I believe a successful outcome for a client is based on a successful relationship with the counsellor. It's all about finding a 'good fit'.

I believe in bringing my life experience to the therapeutic relationship, as my training is informed by my life.

Since 1995 I’ve been a professional self employed dance teacher working with adults of all ages and abilities.
