About me

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.

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.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
