About me

I am a counsellor specialising in the treatment of anxiety, depression, stress, issues with self-esteem or relationships, and repeating patterns of behaviour you’d like to change.

Trained in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, my practice has developed to emphasise the relationship between therapist and client and to create a safe, understanding environment in which your presenting issues can be explored and better understood. I continue to be committed to my professional development, attending a number of professional development seminars and conferences during 2021 and 2021, and have recently undertaken training in the treatment of Borderline Personality Disorder, addiction, and sexual issues including pornography addiction and sex and love addiction.

I work exclusively in private practice from my home in Whetstone, N20 and offer sessions five days a week, and until 10pm on Mondays and Thursdays either in-person or online via Zoom, Skype, Google Meet or Microsoft Teams.

I love my work, and while the journey of therapy can be challenging, being a witness to my clients change has been an experience for which I am continually thankful. 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, or to students or key workers.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am Psychodynamically-trained counsellor and regularly work with clients with depression, issues with self-esteem, anxiety, relationship and/or sexual issues, bereavement, loneliness, panic disorder, separation and divorce, Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) and Psychosis.

Member organisations

BACP

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.
