About me

Should I talk to someone about this? If you've found yourself on this page, it's likely that you've already considered this question. I strongly believe that counselling should be a safe space to explore, understand and resolve difficulties without fear of judgement or rejection. Nothing is too big or small, too difficult or too easy. I provide a safe space where anything can be spoken about openly.

I am an experienced and professionally registered counsellor with the BACP.  My approach is personalised and approachable, where I work alongside you to help overcome difficulties and promote exploration of whatever it is that is bringing you here in the first place. 

I have experience with a wide range of challenges, including anxiety, depression, self-esteem, sexual abuse, domestic violence, bereavement, eating disorders, gender & sexuality, work-related issues, to name but a few.

I am also a tutor to trainee counsellors at a renowned training school in London, and help facilitate wellbeing courses in a corporate environment.

My private practice consulting rooms are in Enfield Town, and I am now accepting bookings for face-to-face sessions. The therapy rooms are within walking distance from public transport links, and there are safety measures in place for COVID-19 that adhere to Government guidelines.

I also offer online counselling sessions, and can offer therapy to individuals in other areas (and outside) of London. Please highlight if you would prefer to see me in person or online counselling when making your enquiry.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist based in North London. I completed my training at the oldest provider of counselling services in the UK, and am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), and abide by its ethical framework.

I run my private practice and also work as a Staff Counsellor at Highgate Counselling Centre. I also helped facilitate a wellbeing course/workshop in a corporate environment, and am a Tutor at The Awareness Centre, delivering a series of workshops to counsellors in training on their Diploma courses.

Prior to starting my career in counselling, I worked as a senior manager for 20+ years and have corporate leadership and operations management experience.

I am of a mixed cultural/ethnic background, which enables me to have a deeper understanding and appreciation of difference, diversity and acceptance. I welcome clients of all backgrounds, regardless of age, socio-economic background, ethnicity, culture, religion, sexual orientation and gender identity.

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.

Further information

What happens when I get in touch?

Reaching out can feel daunting, so it's good to know what to expect. The first step is getting in touch with me (either via Counselling Directory, or the Contact Me form on my website).

Please provide a brief summary of why counselling is being sought. I will get back to you as soon as possible to arrange an initial session. We will discuss what areas you want to explore in counselling, and whether you feel I am the right counsellor for you. I am happy to answer any questions you may have regarding my practice before the initial session.

​If you decide to work with me, we will arrange a regular time and day to meet for weekly sessions. This will be your allocated time-slot every week.

What is psychodynamic counselling?

I practice as a Psychodynamic counsellor which means that my work centres around the basic principle that events and experiences from the past have an effect on our present and future selves. Counselling provides a safe space for you to be listened to, but it’s also a dynamic relationship where I work alongside you. Through this supportive environment you will be able to speak about difficulties faced in your past or present, and together we will find links to help facilitate awareness to what has been left unexplored and unresolved. It is a uniquely individual journey which can enable you to enhance your self-awareness, make unhelpful patterns redundant and thrive rather than just survive.

Wheelchair user access

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.
