Each and every one of us needs support at different times in our life, reaching for support is not a weakness but a strength. If you are struggling to cope, feel low or depressed, or you simply need to talk to someone who can help you explore your thoughts and feelings, please email or call me to see if I could be the right therapist for you.
I am an experienced BACP Accredited Psychotherapist, Fusion Therapeutic Life Coach, EFT practitioner, EMDR and REWIND (fast trauma release) therapist, who can support you at a time when you feel overwhelmed, upset or anxious. You will receive confidential, non-judgemental time and space so you can safely relax and focus on you, your solutions and your future.
See below for fee structure.
I work with clients who:
- Understand the need to appreciate themselves
- Want to live a meaningful life
- Are committed to their personal development
- Want to be free of past trauma
- Want to be HAPPY
I have a comfortable therapy room with parking available directly outside, Enfield Chase Station is a four minute walk, Enfield Town Station is a 10 minute walk.
Walk and Talk Therapy - Many people find therapy intimidating, would you prefer your therapy session walking around the park or along the river instead? The exercise will benefit your physical health, whilst talking, alongside exposure to natural light (lux effect) will benefit your mental health.
Did you know that natural light travels through the retina onto the brain and has an
immediate effect on Serotonin, the feel good hormone. A 50 minute walk outdoors on an overcast day will give you approximately 7-10,000 Lux and on a sunny day, up to an amazing and uplifting 100,000 lux.

The Rewind Technique is for clients with PTSD, flashbacks, anxiety and unwanted involuntary thoughts.
The Rewind Technique has become internationally recognised as indispensable to treat PTSD (www.iartt.com). It usually requires no more than two sessions to bring about closure for single traumas. The results are enduring - a follow up of two years showed no relapses in that period of time, it has an over 90% success rate.

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.
