I'm an experienced Therapist and Counsellor with more than 14 years of expertise supporting people with issues such as depression, anxiety, relationship problems, low self-esteem, lack of confidence, family issues and childhood trauma. I specialize in supporting people to address addictions such as sex addiction, gambling addiction and drug and alcohol addiction. I also have an extensive knowledge of 12 step work.
What I offer
I work from an integrative/person centered approach which incorporates motivational interviewing in the process with some life coaching, if requested.
I offer a safe, warm, pragmatic and down to earth space where my clients can feel free to explore their issues, anxieties, fears, thoughts, feelings and fantasies without the fear of judgment or reproach.
Apart from traditional counselling I offer a 'Walking Therapy' in the local park, Finsbury Park or Alexandra Palace, for those that find the counselling space too intense and telephone or skype counselling for those that would rather stay in the privacy of their own home.
I offer a negotiable sliding scale fee of 50 pounds (depending on income) for a standard 50 minute session. Open ended or fixed/short term counselling which can be solution focused if required.
I also offer a free initial consultation of 30 minutes in order for you to see if you would like to work with me or not.
