I am a qualified therapist working in private practice in North London. I have an NHS background, having worked as a therapist in the IAPT service. During my time in the NHS I worked with a very wide and diverse range of people of all ages, from all backgrounds and walks of life.
I offer weekly individual sessions which can be open ended and long-term, and I also offer short-term, time limited sessions focused around a specific goal.
I have an interest in attachment theory and psychodynamic frameworks, and work in an integrative way, based on the needs and best interests of the person in front of me. I try to create a warm, empathic, non-judgemental and confidential atmosphere as a safe place for exploring thoughts, feelings and everyday challenges which may be causing worry, anxiety, depression or distress.
On my website (www.talkingcuretherapy.com), you will be able to read more about me, my background and the way I work, as well as more information about what therapy is, and how the process works in the FAQ and articles section.
I offer introductory sessions to better understand what help and support you may need, and for you to get a better understanding of how I work, with no obligation to continue. I practice in North London, and centrally in King's Cross.

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.
Areas of counselling I deal with
Fees vary depending on the day, time and location, from £60 to £80, payable via bank transfer or cash. I also offer online sessions, however, it is preferable to start with some in-person sessions if possible. I offer a half price initial introductory session with no obligation to continue.
Sessions last 50 minutes, and are at the same time each week. For more information see www.talkingcuretherapy.com
