About me

Hi, I am an experienced, solution-focused counsellor who my clients describe as "exceptionally easy to talk to, highly professional, non-judgmental and caring". I help young and old adults overcome their anxiety, sadness and depression, low self-esteem, grief, anger, trauma, life direction and relationship problems.  I see most of my clients online or face-to-face at a private counselling room in north London.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a fully qualified member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) with a Diploma in Integrative Therapeutic Counselling, for which I studied for 4 years. I also hold a BA(Hons) degree and have many years of experience as a professional communicator.

My training includes all the main Psychodynamic and Person-Centred/Humanistic theories and CBT.

​I have worked with clients of all ages and backgrounds and love meeting and building relationships with new clients. ​I am told that I am incredibly easy to talk to, and exceptionally non-judgmental and warm. I am also very solution-focused. We will together work through whatever is bothering you to find a way forward that works for you. If you are struggling with something that is outside my experience I would be happy to make a referral for you.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Additional information

I offer discounts for a pre-booked block of sessions. Student concessions are also available.

The number and frequency of sessions is entirely up to you. I see some clients on a weekly basis, others fortnightly or even monthly. I do not generally recommend one-off sessions apart from to past clients, to whom I am very happy to offer one-off sessions on an ad hoc basis,  as and when the client feels he/she/they need(s) one.

When I work

Mon Tue Wed Thu Fri Sat Sun

In an ideal world we will meet at the same time/day every week/fortnight,  But, as the world is not ideal, I will be flexible if you need to change arrangements,  given adequate notice.

Further information

I live and work in north west London, and am happy to see clients online (my preferred platform is Zoom) or in person in a counselling room close to my home.

There is lots of other useful info on my website, including client testimonials and the ethical promises that I make to all my clients.
