Counsellor/Psychotherapist with 30+ years of experience accredited by the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy).
Over the past 30 years, I have helped clients of all ages and different backgrounds overcome the effects of the most severe and adverse of circumstances through therapy.
I have experience in working with:
- Loss and bereavement
- Family separation
- Panic attacks
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Anger and sadness
- Struggle with identity
- Domestic violence
- Survivors of war trauma and war atrocities
- Working with refugees and asylum seekers
- Issues of race and culture in therapy
- Working with children and adolescents
My aim is not to keep you in therapy longer than you need to be. My aim is to help empower you, facilitate your independence, and help you explore your feelings at your own pace so you leave therapy when we both feel is the right time for you.
I am trained both Psychodynamically and Integratively, therefore I am able to apply different approaches to ensure the wellbeing of all my clients.
I offer face-to-face sessions either online (Zoom/Skype) or in-person in the North London/Herts area.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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).
