About me

I work with a person-centred perspective, which means we talk about what is most important to you, offering a compassionate, understanding, and empathic space, one that is confidential, and free from judgement or presumptions, where you are free to share and discuss whatever you would like to. I am trained as an Integrative therapist which means that we can draw upon a number of approaches, and collaborate on finding a way that we both think is right for you.

With your hopes regarding therapy in mind, we work at your pace and focus on your needs. In doing so we may explore past experiences, reflect on what affects you in the present, and together work on ways of thinking and behaving that you may wish were different.

Any difficult and painful subjects that you wish to talk about will be heard, and I will help you to bear these in a compassion-focused approach, one that values trust and connection, and the uniqueness of every client. As a humanistic therapist I endeavour to be culturally aware, so that all individual diversity and experiences are seen and respected.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist, having studied and trained through University College Dublin, Birkbeck College, and the University of Roehampton. I have a B.A. Degree in Psychology, and M.A. in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy.

I work to the client’s preference, offering weekly, 50-minute sessions in-person and via online video link. My in person practice work is based in the EN2 area in Enfield.

I am a registered member of the BACP and work to the professional standards outlined in the BACP’s Ethical Framework.

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.

Accredited register membership

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

When I work

Mon Tue Wed Thu Fri Sat Sun

Sessions are 50 minutes, weekly, and can be arranged Mondays; and Wednesdays to Fridays between 9am and 8pm. 

Further information

In the first session, you will have secure space to share your story, and we will explore your reasons for coming to therapy, what you would like to focus on and how we might like to work together moving forward. It is a chance for us to get to know each other and for me to understand your needs, your expectations, and to ensure that you and I feel we are a good fit.

We will discuss an agreement for working together, describing my responsibilities as the counsellor and yours as the client. I can offer both short and long-term therapy, either fixed or open-ended, and this can be tailored to your current situation.
