The Psychological treatments and counselling services are now online (via Skype, whatsApp and Facetime) or by telephone to comply with government health guidelines..

I am a Chartered Counselling Psychologist registered with British Psychological Society(BPS). I am also an associate fellow of the British Psychological Society (AFBPsS) I offer short term and long term therapy to individuals and couples in Central and North London.
Being a counselling psychologist means that I have worked with people experiencing a broad variety of difficulties and dissatisfactions in their daily lives to enhance their emotional well-being. I am professionally trained in providing short term counselling, including CBT, and long term psychotherapy.
My practice is based in Barnet North London.
My aim is to provide a safe space where you can feel understood without being judged, deepening your awareness of your unique patterns of feeling, thinking and behaviour. This process of gaining insight and self awareness helps you to make informed choices and experience in your personal and professional life, and helps you enjoy your life in a more meaningful way.

Areas of counselling I deal with
I see clients weekdays during the day. I also have slots available at the weekends and evenings. However I charge the same rate
One of the core beliefs in my therapy work is based on repetition compulsion which is a Psychological phenomenon used to explain the client’s need to re enact early traumatic events or their difficulties over and over again. The aim of psychotherapy is to facilitate the client to acknowledge these patterns and get in touch with the root of their trauma in order to facilitate change.
Regardless of techniques being used based on the client’s needs, I strongly believe that the therapeutic relationship plays a major role in helping the clients face their fears and their anger in order to integrate splits off parts so that they feel more integrated in themselves and free themselves from their past experiences.
Finally based on my personal as well as my academic and professional knowledge and experiences, I know and believe that regardless of where you are at in your life change is always possible given the right context and therapeutic work.
