About me

Life isn’t easy and sometimes it can feel overwhelming. You may feel stuck in a rut, or that patterns are repeating and you're struggling to cope. Maybe you're in crisis for the first time. Seeking help to explore your difficulties is a courageous step, but can be very daunting.

I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.  I aim to provide a warm, non-judgemental and honest confidential space, in which to explore the challenges you are facing.  I am an integrative counsellor, meaning that I combine different theoretical approaches to suit your needs and pace.

I offer a 15 minute telephone session (no charge) in order to understand what has brought you to counselling and why now?  We can talk about my availability and you may have questions about how I work.

If we decide it is right to meet, I will offer you an appointment for an assessment session which will last for 50 minutes, charged at the agreed rate.  It's an opportunity for me to find out more about you and for us to see if we can work together and for you to understand more about the therapeutic relationship and process.

My consulting room is based in Camden Town in a well established women's centre.  Here I offer 50 minute face to face sessions, available to those that identify as women.

The centre is a 5 minute walk from Camden Town tube or Camden Road rail station, with numerous bus links. A ramp and lift are available if needed.

I also offer 50 minute online sessions, available to all genders.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am an integrative counsellor, regularly working with clients who are suffering from depression and anxiety within an NHS setting.

The therapeutic relationship between counsellor and client can shed light on other relationships in your life and provide an opportunity for repair, nurture and healing.

Having worked in complementary health for many years, I have an interest in how emotional stress and trauma may be held in the body, sometimes manifesting as chronic pain and disease.

I comply with GDPR legislation and any data you provide is stored securely. 

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.

Key details

DBS check

In England and Wales, the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS, formerly known as CRB) carry out criminal records checks for individuals working with vulnerable groups, such as children. To find out more, visit gov.uk , or contact this professional directly

Wheelchair user access

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.
