About me

I am a qualified, experienced and attentive therapist, an Accredited Member of the BACP and registered with the British Psychoanalytic Council. I see individual adults who may be struggling to cope with long term issues, traumatic events or new difficulties that have emerged in their lives.  Others choose psychotherapy to help them understand themselves better and embark on a journey of self-exploration so they can begin to experience their life in a more authentic and fulfilling way.

I provide a confidential setting in which you can share the issues you are struggling with, or the aspects of yourself you wish to explore and we can think about them together in the light of your unique personal history.

Taking the first steps...
If you would like to contact me, you may do so by email or by leaving me a voice message.  We will then speak briefly on the phone and if appropriate, set up an initial consultation during which we will begin to develop a sense of whether working together feels right. We may decide to meet again before deciding whether to begin regular weekly sessions, or we may arrange to begin regular sessions from the following week. I will take you through the practical details and we will take it from there.

My private practice is based in Mill Hill NW7, easily accessible by public transport and car, with parking available. You are welcome to visit my website by clicking on the link, for more information about how I work.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified and experienced counsellor with a Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling from The Manor House Centre for Psychotherapy and Counselling, accredited by the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I also have a BA (Jt Hons.) from The University of Bristol.

I am an Accredited Member of the BACP and am also registered with the British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC). I abide by the Code of Ethics of both professional bodies.  I am fully insured.

I have worked as a therapist in clinical practice for a number of years in a range of different settings in addition to my private practice.  I work with individual adults who present with issues such as anxiety, depression, stress, family and relationship difficulties, low self-esteem and low confidence issues, panic attacks, separation, loss and trauma.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

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.

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.

BPC

British Psychoanalytic Council

The British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC) is a professional association, representing the profession of psychoanalytic psychotherapy.

The organisation is itself made up of fourteen member organisations and BPC accredits the trainings of its member organisations. An individual who qualifies from one of these trainings is then eligible for entry into the BPC's register.

BPC registrants are governed by a code of ethics, a policy of continuing professional development, a statement on confidentiality and a complaints procedure. The BPC is a Member Society of the European Federation for Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy in the Public Sector (EFPP). Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

It may be that you are suffering from a more general sense of low mood, or feel you have lost your direction.  You may be feeling ill at ease with yourself and need someone to help you understand why.  There may be many different reasons for you to be seeking therapy and you may not be able to tick a box and put a label on it.  Whatever it is, we can talk it through together.
