About me

I am currently offering therapy via phone or video link during the Covid-19 outbreak. When you make contact I will explain how this works.

I offer a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space where I work with individuals to achieve lasting personal change.

I use a targeted approach to set appropriate goals for your therapy, and importantly this helps to signal when the therapy is over. This saves you time and money, as well as helping you feel better faster.

I have helped many people of all ages:

  • Reduce anxiety
  • Break the cycle of depression
  • Stop panic attacks
  • Improve relationships and family issues
  • Progress career
  • Increase confidence
  • Self-manage your mental health
  • Explore sexuality
  • Manage anger
  • Sleep better

You might want to focus on a specific problem that is troubling you, or you may simply have a sense that you are not feeling yourself, and things are ‘not quite right’.  I work flexibly and creatively to help you find ways to manage and overcome difficulties with a variety of approaches.

I have fifteen years experience working as a psychotherapist, group facilitator and consultant both within private and public organisations including the BBC, the NHS, local colleges and schools and the Employment industry. I have been a registered member of the BACP since 2010.

My specialisms:

  • Issues related to young people - eating disorders, self-harm, low self-esteem, bereavement, family breakdown. I have worked as a schools counsellor and facilitator in London primary and secondary schools.
  • Employment - including stress, illness, PTSD, long periods of unemployment.
  • Depression - including post-natal and anxiety management.
  • Relationship issues.

My approach:

Although I have trained as a Transactional Analyst, and additionally have had brief training as a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist, I also draw on the humanistic, relational, psychodynamic and existential approaches. Creativity is also central to my approach.

Locations:

I am currently offering therapy via phone or video link during the Covid-19 outbreak. When you make contact I will explain how this works.

I work from Whetstone in North London, which is easy to reach by public transport from the surrounding areas of Muswell Hill, Barnet, Hertfordshire, Oakleigh Park, Southgate, Finchley, Enfield and Cockfosters.  It is a 15 minute walk from Totteridge and Whetstone or High Barnet tube station on the Northern line (High Barnet branch), and the 326, 389, 234, 263, 34, 307, 384 bus stop is 2 minutes away.

There is free parking on my road and surrounding roads.

My consulting room in Barnet is on the ground floor and is wheelchair accessible.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

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.
