About me

I am registered with the British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC) as well as being a member of the British  Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and I abide by their code of ethics. I am committed to providing Psychodynamic Counselling in a confidential and safe environment in North London.

Psychodynamic Counselling enables us to create a therapeutic alliance which treats your symptoms and suffering through speech. I am interested in listening to your story by providing you with a space to speak freely. I will be able to listen to your story allowing you to give voice to your symptoms. I will pay close attention to not just to the words you use, but to the words that you omit or leave unsaid.

The focus in therapy is to open avenues for growth and endeavour to facilitate change. We will explore the way you relate to your sense of self, your family, groups and society. Therapeutic work may open up a vast reservoir of feelings and complex emotions that may be outside of your conscious awareness but have been actively informing your relational patterns, sense of self and your way of life. The same blocks that have prevented you from developing good relationships and finding happiness, will emerge in our therapeutic relationship. We will explore what they are and how they came into being.

Therapy involves dedication, time commitment and a willingness to explore your emotions. Although this kind of work may sound quite demanding it is potentially very rewarding and may potentially bring long lasting benefits.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling and Therapy as well as a Diploma in Parent/Infant Observation. In addition to my counselling experience I have worked for 16 years in education and have a Master’s Degree in Education. This experience has been invaluable to me in terms of understanding the difficulties parents experience with their adolescents growing up today in an ever changing and technologically advanced world. Working in education has also enabled me to better understand the effects of working in an increasingly pressurised and stressful environment that many people find themselves trapped in nowadays.

I am committed to continuing my professional development and regularly attend training courses with a particular focus on sexual abuse, trauma, depression and relationship difficulties. I have worked over the past 2 years for a charity focussing on childhood sexual abuse. Other issues I have had experience with include the following:

  • Anger management
  • Anxiety
  • Bereavement
  • Bullying
  • Child related issues
  • Cross cultural relationships
  • Depression
  • Emotional abuse
  • Family issues
  • Low self-esteem
  • Passive aggressive behaviour
  • Personality disorders
  • Physical abuse
  • Redundancy
  • Relationship issues
  • Self-harm
  • Separation and divorce
  • Stress
  • Suicidal thoughts
  • Trauma
  • Work related stress.

Fees

If you are prepared and ready to explore your internal world and are committed to being reflective and honest with yourself, then I would encourage you to make an appointment for an initial consultation.

You can contact me via email or telephone and we can arrange a time for an initial assessment consultation. If it seems appropriate you will then begin therapy with me and the cost of individual sessions will be discussed between us. In London, the individual session fee ranges between £50 and £70.
