About me

I work from a person-centred approach to therapy which means I believe the therapeutic relationship that develops between client and counsellor is key to the process of self-discovery.

It is my belief that the client is best placed to determine the focus of each session, and it is my aim to facilitate a safe space for the client to explore freely.

Through non-judgment and genuine positive regard each individual is able to bring whatever they choose whilst I am present with them. Immersing myself in the client's world, we explore what is going on at their pace, towards the client's self-realisations.

This way of working offers an opportunity to explore a deeper understanding of who we are and what we feel, and for creating different choices.

Our first session is for exploring what has brought you to counselling/therapy and the possibility of us working together. We discuss duration and frequency of meetings along with any details of our possible agreement and contract.

I have availability Monday to Friday from a therapeutic space in Muswell Hill, North London. I offer telephone and Skype counselling also.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a BACP registered counsellor. I trained in person-centred counselling and studied psychodynamic, CBT and existential theories also. During my training I worked in the NHS as part of the IAPT service, in a substance misuse centre and at a north London secondary school.
