About me

Based in Barnet, North London, I am an experienced psychotherapist, counsellor and hypnotherapist. As well as my private practice, I am also the core tutor for the certificate year at CPPD Counselling School in London. I am committed to the professional and ethical use of hypnotherapy and psychotherapy and work in an integrative way to help you get back on track. I specialises in stress management, relationship issues, depression, phobias, panic attacks, addiction, smoking cessation and run a very successful weight loss programme.

I believe that people need different interventions depending on their presenting issues and where they are at a particular moment in time. That is why I combine all three modalities, counselling, long and short-term psychotherapy and hypnotherapy.

How can I help?

I offer a confidential,and non-judgemental space where you can where you can any feelings or situations that may be troubling you. My job is to help you find new strategies for dealing with any difficulties you may be experiencing and help develop a fresher perspective.

My main theoretical framework is Relational Transactional Analysis (TA). The therapeutic relationship not only serves as a mirror to analyse fears, problems and needs you may experience but also, as a means to explore and discover new ways of being and relating that better fit with your life and help you in being who you want to be.

You might discover that the ways of behaving you developed in the past in order to cope with difficult situations are no longer effective. Therapy can provide a safe and confidential environment to explore and understand why you may have developed particular patterns and explore new ways of being with yourself, others and the world.

I work closely with my clients to understand their needs and together decide upon the goals and outcomes of therapy.

During the initial consultation, we will begin to assess your particular needs and agree the most appropriate therapy for you.
