If you’re suffering from stress, anxiety, depression, relationship issues, poor self-esteem, work issues, or if you find yourself in a repeating pattern you’d like to change, talking to someone can help.
I offer my clients my genuine passion for the work, training and interest in helping people. I believe very strongly that someone’s financial position should not be a barrier to them seeking counselling help, and I am able to offer affordable sessions to those on low incomes.
In addition to open-ended, ongoing work I offer clients short-term, solution-focused programmes from 6 to 12 sessions which can focus exclusively on a single presenting issue.
I work exclusively in private practice from my home in Whetstone, N20 and offer sessions five days and week and until 10pm on Mondays and Thursdays. I also offer online work via Skype, Zoom or Microsoft Teams.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am Psychodynamically-trained counsellor and counselling skills tutor, and have worked with clients with depression, issues with self-esteem and anxiety, relationship and/or sexual issues, bereavement, loneliness, panic disorder, separation and divorce, Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) and Psychosis. I welcome graduates of the Hoffman Process.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
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).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
My standard fee is £50 per hour, but some concessionary rates are available.
