Life is complex and we could all do with some extra support. The importance of being properly heard, seen and listened to without being judged is what I am trying to provide to a client as a therapist. I aim to offer a space for you where you can try to find your direction again, whatever that direction may be. Somewhere to explore issues and choices available, perhaps from a different viewpoint.
I became interested in therapy when I myself needed somewhere to go to find my inner compass. The support and strength I felt I received and found during counselling sessions made me want to learn more myself about counselling and therapy. My aim and hope as a therapist is to be able to assist others in finding their own way forward, by becoming a facilitator for change. My practice is based on the Person Centred Approach with added knowledge and skills from an Integrative approach. This means that I try to tailor the work that we do together to your individual and unique requirements.
I work from my private practice in Crouch End, North London.
In addition, I work as a Counsellor with 14 to 19 year olds in an educational setting.
I have previously practised as a voluntary counsellor seeing adult clients at the Working Men’s College, Mornington Crescent, London and I have gained experience working with young people at Skinner’s Academy, Manor House, London (secondary school) through the charity KidsCo.

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.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
